We had a deluxe double canal side room. Ornate and evocative of old Italy, it was perfect for our two night stay and first trip to Venice. Location is superb with the Rialto bridge close by and St.Mark's Square a pleasant 20 minute walk.
People have mentioned noise yet we found the shutters and windows closed at night kept all the noise out. Breakfast is basic continental and is enough to set you on your way.
If you have lots of luggage then I recommend you get a private boat from the airport - we booked online with Consorzio Motoscafi. It's about 90 Euros one way - expensive, yes, but a stylish way to arrive in Venice and you are dropped right in front of the hotel. Money well spent.
The hotel made good recommendations for restaurants - we liked to avoid the Tourist Menu places!
Antico Doge is not cheap, however, it does offer great location, Venetian style and helpful staff. I would recommend it to anyone.

The hotel rooms, fitted with every comfort and elegantly furnished with original antique pieces, some have jacuzzi, separate shower cubicles, hairdryers, satellite TV, a direct telephone line, Internet WI-FI, air conditioning with individual room control, a safe-deposit box, and there is a buffet breakfast.
