I live an hour from Venice and have been there many times for the day, but this was my first overnight stay. I loved it! This view, and the experience of being right on the Grande Canal, is priceless. You will have to pay for the pleasure, but if you get a special offer on the website it is a great value for Venice. We paid 199 (1/2 price) for a deluxe room with a canal view. You will find cheaper, but not with this location and view.
The location is central, a 15 minute walk can get you to San Marco one way or the train station the other. It is right on the main boat line. Easy access to the Accedemia. If you don't know Venice, my favorite place for art is the Scuolo San Rocco.
As for food, Venice is notoriously bad, but that is only if you don't know where to go. Ask the hotel for some little Osteria's around the corner, we've had great food here. Also, if you want to get away from the tourist drag, head for the Jewish Quarter. There are some great little mom and pop places on quiet canals.
If you want the full experience of Venice, this place is a great bet. You are paying for more than just a room staying here. It isn't plush or trendy, but has tons of atmosphere, a place with a vibe...Lord Byron lived nearby when he was writing some of his best work...you can here voices from a forgotten era in a place like this...
