Suites Torre dell'Orologio is tucked away behind the clock tower in St. Mark’s Square. While it’s within steps of St. Marks, if we had used the directions from their website we probably wouldn’t have found it easily. I also took the directions from another review because they differed drastically and using those directions went right to it. (From St. Mark’s Square, walk through the Archway at the base of the clock tower. This street is called Calle delle Mercerie. Follow the Mercerie and turn left at the second small street, Calle del Baloni. The entrance to the Suites is at the end of this street, next to the canal.)
Upon entering our suite we were amazed at how fantastic it was. It was huge with a living room, dining area, kitchen and two bathrooms. Our suite overlooked a beautiful typical Venetian canal. The room was clean, modern, and well decorated. The AC worked well and was very quiet. Actually the room overall was very quiet, which made it easy to sleep. Breakfast also exceeded our expectations and included various meats, cheeses, juice, coffee, and even some hot items such as bacon and eggs. Breakfast is served at the neighboring sister-hotel San Marco Palace and can be reached by a hallway that connects the two hotels.
The only issue we had with the Suites was that the Wi-Fi connection stated on their website was nonexistent. While most people want to get away from everything on vacation, it was imperative for us to have Internet access for work reasons. Luckily we had a backup plan to use broadband access through our cell phone. However, this was costly and the hotel Wi-Fi would have been free.
Other than that one small issue, our stay at the Suites exceeded our expectations and made our dream trip to Venice a huge success!
