We arrived late afternoon on a rainy day, and were met with the very pleasant greeting of an upgrade to a King Tower Suite, an enormous corner suite with fantastic views over the Guidecca Canal - thank you Hilton! As this is their top room apart from the Presidential Suite, I have absolutely no criticism to make. We stayed 4 nights.
Breakfast was excellent, public areas nice, Executive Lounge very good, wifi good, etc. Very nice rooftop pool and bar.
We dined in the hotel every night, using each of their restaurants, and the food was excellent every time, albeit a tad expensive.
Frequent private shuttle service to San Marco, though we used the Vaporetto as it gave us more options.
As it was raining when we arrived at the airport, we took the Alilaguna boat service which goes right to the Hotel, but took about 1 3/4 hours of rather uncomfortable travel. As the weather was beautiful when we left we took a private water taxi back to the airport - cost €130-, but worth every cent - I highly recommend it - it's the only way to travel!!
In summary, a tastefully converted hotel in a good location away from the tourist crowds but within easy reach of all the prime attractions.More
