My boyfriend surprised me with a long weekend in Venice for my Birthday & chose this hotel for our stay.
We got a private water taxi directly from Marco Polo Airport to the hotel. It was a great way to see some of the canals & sights on the way.
The hotel is right on the Grand Canal & was the perfect location to walk around the entire city.
The hotel itself was very clean & grand with marbled floors & rich decor. The walls were covered with fabric as tradition.
The bed was very comfortable & the bathroom was gorgeous, although the bath was a little small for my 6ft 2" boyfriend! He also thought the room was a little on the small side but it made no difference to me as I just wanted to explore the city.
The turndown service was lovely to come back to after a day of walking around.
The breakfast was served in the hotel restaurant. Breakfast was included and the selection was primarily continential style breakfas with the usual cheeses & meats, t or American style breakfast with waffles, pancakes, crispy bacon etc. There was a good selection of fruit juices & cereals & the coffee was delicious. The addition of a glass of bubbly at breakfast was also a nice treat!
