“beautiful hotel, great town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2008

We stayed one night at the Hotel Murano for business and expect to stay there again in the future. The hotel is sleek and beautiful and the location is convenient. The room was on the small side but very nice with efficient use of space. I thought the mattress was uncomfortable (my husband disagrees) and I forgot to order the type of pillows I prefer and did not sleep well. The ice maker on our floor was out of order but that is a minor complaint. I am posting pictures that will tell more than this review.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary by staying a night at the king prom room and getting a couples massage at Savi day spa. The room was clean, the style was chic and modern, we felt like we indulge in getting such a nice room. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were soft. We had such a comfortable time relaxing in our room and enjoying the view. We had dinner at El Gaucho steakhouse for impeccable service and outstanding steaks. The artwork was impressive in the hotel and later we had evening wine hour and then a nice continental breakfast in the morning. The evening wine hour and continental breakfast was nice, but a little lonely since we were the only people in the room for those services offered. Overall a relaxing place to get a little R&R.
