Our four night stay did not start well when we made the mistake of taking the wrong vaporetto from the airport, and ended up with a long and difficult trek to the hotel. Make sure you know in advance the name of the stop because it pulls up right behind the hotel.
We had a junior suite that overlooked the grand canal. What a view! The room was beautiful and and I loved the pink and gold bathroom.
This was our second stay in Venice. Last year we were on a small canal but on the other side closer to st. Marks. This location had an up and down side. We were tired when we arrived and wanted to eat somewhere close. This area is more residential and the restaurants seemed more like beer and pizza with lots of young smokers. So, be prepared to walk. Also, the second night We asked the front desk to recommend a place and his choice was average and very,very, buggy. (we were placed in the front window and i think the gnats and mosquitoes were attracted to the lights). The up side is this side of the canal is not as crowded.
Btw we always had to track down the wait staff in the bar.
