Thanks to the Icelandic Volcanic Ash cloud, we were fortunate to be marooned in Venice for 4 days, and stayed at the Hotel Monaco and Grand Canal. This is a great hotel, and the juinior suite was very large by Ventian hotel standards. The room was very clean, crisp linens daily and a very modern bathroom.The hotel location is perfect...50 yards from St. Marco Square and all the restaurants. Breakfast on the hotel canal front patio looking across the water at Santa Maria della Salute and Dogana Di Mare just cant get any better, with gondolas moored right in front of the patio. Very modern bar. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. .Tip - dont take the private water taxis who charge 90-100 Euros (approx $150 !!) from the airport to the hotel area. Instead, when arriving at Marco Polo Airport - in the baggage hall look for the ticket machine for Alilaguna Lines..take the Blue Line for 13 euros each (cash..so bring Euro bills). The Gold line is allegedly 10 minutes faster but 26 euros each. The water bus stops right at San Marco, then it is very easy to take a ACTV water bus to other stops along the canal if you need to.
