Wonderful hotel, staff, and location.

This is not a luxury hotel, like the Gritti Palace, but a simple, clean, comfortable, and very friendly hotel in a real Venetian neighbourhood, yet extremely convenient for the Accademia, Salute, traghetto to San Marco, and at least three vaporetto stops. We've travelled to Venice many times and we've even stayed at the Gritti, but we always end up coming back to Hotel American because we prefer it. The location can't be beat, very quiet, away from the terrible crowds around San Marco, with wonderful cafes and restaurants on the Zattere canal, and the hotel itself is on a small canal so you can take a water taxi to and from the airport right to the door. The staff are always very friendly and helpful, but never obtrusive. We discovered three of four new luxury hotels while we were wandering around Venice this trip (Boscolo in Cannaregio, the Centurion near the Salute, the Santa Marina in Castello), but however we looked at it, Hotel American always seemed a better choice. We've been coming here for 15 years, and will be coming back again in October or November.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Riviera restaurant in Dorsoduro, about a ten to fifteen minute walk down the Zattere canal facing the Giudecca, is fantastic. If you want a Dorsoduro alternative to Corte Sconta, Alle Testiere, or Osteria di Santa Marina, the Riviera is a great choice. In warm weather there are outdoor tables on the canal. The food is fresh and uncomplicated but also inventive, and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful about wine.
