We stayed here in late March and the hotel is wonderful. We liked the location a little further away from the San Marco area that can be very crowded. The hotel is on a long promenade that makes it feel a bit more spacious and less crowded. Most importantly, I can't say enough about helpful the front desk staff was with all our needs. Julian in particular was very patient with us - finding restaurant reservations, booking train tickets, and generally directing us around. I would stay here again.
