OK, so we did splurge a little in this romantic city and booked the Carnival Palace Hotel. WOW. The place was incredible. The room we had was by far the best one on our entire 3 week, 7 city tour, although Hotel Grand Royal in Sorrento was possibly tied for first place.
This hotel was wonderful. Large suites, great canal view, but so quiet and peaceful. Water Bus stop (Tre Archi) about 50 feet away. Easy to walk into the pedestrian areas between the train station and St Marks, but hardly anyone walks this way so it is quiet unless you want to walk a few hundred yards and join the masses coming over the bridge from the train station.
We absolutely loved this place. The breakfast also was one of our best of the trip, but the best still was Hotel Manfredi in Rome for that honor.
