I recently stayed at the Hotel Murano and I have to say it is a beautiful hotel with excellent service. The rooms were tastefully decorated, bed was comfy, every staff person I encountered was professional, eager to help, and very friendly.
With that said there were two "minor" issues that weren't a deal breaker, but still left an impression on me. First, on a number of the TV channels there was a high-pitched "ringing" tone you could hear in the background. When I called and spoke to a staff member regarding this, I was politely told that occasionally on their digital network, this sometimes happened. So watching TV wasn't really an option. Okay, so I rented a movie and read a book.
My biggest disappointment was with room service. I ordered the Salmon with veggies and I asked for extra veggies. When the server arrived with my dinner I noticed a very small piece of Salmon, no bigger than my fist, and total of 6-small Asparagus. I looked at the server, assuming there was a mistake with my order, and asked where the extra veggies were. She then replied that what I received was an extra serving. So for $30.00 I received a small piece of Salmon and six Asparagus? The server was very polite, I was tired, I signed the bill and said goodnight.
Bottom line - this is a great hotel and my stay overall was comfortable. But if I do stay here again, I'll be sure to bring a book and look elsewhere for meals.
