My wife and I sandwiched a few days in Venice around a cruise, so the location of this hotel was excellent.
The Orange line vaporetto to the airport stops at the front door, and the bellman carried bags out there several times during our stay. We were in room 203, which overlooked the Canal and the Scalzi bridge. Although we didn't need it, this suite has a second bedroom upstairs with its own bathroom. I would guess that 202 and 204, 303, etc shared a similar view.
The room was huge, but poorly lit. We didn't use the TV. Bathroom was clean and relatively modern.
Front office staff could not have been more helpful. Jorge suggested a wonderful and reasonably priced game dinner nearby. Maria helped with our airline boarding passes when we had a snag. The bell staff held onto our bags well past normal checkout.
This is a great hotel for people arriving by train as the station is about 200 feet away. The Ple Roma station is across a modern glass bridge with many, many steps. We found taking the vap with our 48 hour passes to be a better alternative.
We passed on their E12 breakfast deal. You can do much better up the street, with wonderful people watching.
