Bella Italia

Our room at the Westin Europa and Regina in Venice overlooked The Grand Canal. It was wonderful to hear the lapping water, singing gondoliers, and lovely church bells. It was a beautiful room and a beautiful experience. Thank you.

For the price of a cup of coffee (expensive though it may be) you can hear wonderful music day and night in St. Mark's Square

Perfect location

Excellent location right on the Grand Canal. We only had breakfast, but the choice from the buffet was excellent. As with most old hotels in Italy, the room was cramped, though well presented, but the shower was tiny. Overall, though, we would recommend the hotel for a city break but it is expensive.

Much needed Venice holiday

The hotel was nice. There was major construction next door which we were concerned about but it did not interfere with our stay, just exterior pictures. Food and beverage prices were not realistic, even for a Westin, so we ate outside the hotel for each meal. The bathrooms were a good size but the shower was no more than 30" x 30" and nowhere to get away from the spray of the water.

Disappointed!

The hotel is quite beautiful as you enter it. It is in front of the canal but that is where all beauty stops. First we were greeted by the coldest Westin representative. We just completed 12 hrs of flying and [...] (the person checking us in) was like a Russian militia captain. She didn't make eye contact, she didn't go through pleasantries, she just asked registration questions like if you are a prisoner. Our room was not ready as check-in is at 3pm. She didn't even have the consideration to offer to store our bags temporarily until the room was available. Apparently this is how Westin trains their people because I have never interfaced with hotel industry representatives that were so cold - not a smile, not a pleasantry. All the ladies behind the counter (3), 2 concierge reps - all were the same. There was one concierge named [...] who was human and very attentive. Once we got to our room - after 3pm - it was a plain large room. The only pretty thing was the headboard. The mirror was broken, the A/C didn't cool well, there was no art work on the walls. We had 1 bed, 1 chaise lounge, TV and a desk. For $500/night, this truly was the worst experience we have ever had. When we booked, it said that this room had a side view. When you look at the pictures, they make you believe the 'side view' is to the canal. That is not the case. The hotel has 2 buildings - one faces the canal and one toward the street. There is no side view because it was not in the building by the canal and other than that, Venice is all compacted so if you are in the inside building, all you see is the next building to your side. We asked about going to Murano Island and the hotel offers a water taxi (complimentary). Be aware that the taxi takes you to a particular gallery in Murano where they work really hard to sell you their expensive beauties. The gallery had incredibly beautiful things but you can feel the pressure to buy something expensive. It was not worth the compliment! We also had to take a water taxi from the hotel to the train station. We were told it would be 65 Euros. The taxi charged us 70 Euros. Frankly, it was a disappointment to go with Westin. We have done luxurious Marriott and Intercontinental Hotels and that is luxury. Would not recommend spending the money.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Do not buy around St. Mark's square nor at the touristic areas like Rialto bridge. Buy in between touristic areas. you will find the same stuff much cheaper. Don't eat in fancy restaurants. Food quality is ok in Venice. Trattorias and Osterias offer same quality for cheaper prices.

Beautiful hotel and location

Beautiful 5 start hotel on the Grand Canal in Venice Italy. Excellent location and staff. The only downside is the cost at the hotel bar (to be expected) was high but considering the outside seating over the Grand Canal, it was worth it. We had a newly decorated room that was very nice.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Take a long walk away from the Tourist areas and you'll find great and (for Venice) inexpensive restaurants. The locations near San Marco's square are very expensive and the food is lacking (but they are always busy since this is the largest tourist area).

Fabulous location at the bottom of the Grand Canal just a stroll from St. Mark's. We spent a fair amount of time in the bar overlooking the Canal.

Lap of Luxury

A luxurious, brilliantly sited sited hotel, right on the Grand Canal. The bed was perfect. The linens soft. The bathroom was a marvel in orangish-pinkish marble. Wide-screen television with excellent reception. Reasonably priced internet. Room soundproofing was first-rate. Our room was upgraded on check-in, and we got a spacious sixth floor expanse which included a sundeck the size of many rooms I've stayed in over the years. Our room was not directly over the Grand Canal, but our sundeck's view was marvelous, nonetheless. Looking one way, we could see the Grand Canal and the Island of Giudecca. Looking the other way were the rooftops, cupolas and spires of Venice. A few nits: Though the public rooms are as opulent and palatial as any in Venice, our actual room was done up in a largely bland business hotel style. The only Venetian touches were a passel of Murano wall sconces, a Venetian mirror and a Gothic style headboard for the bed. The hotel is apparently used by upscale tour groups so the hotel's forecourt & lobby can be bus station chaotic. This also caused the front desk to be a bit "get 'em in, get 'em out" brusque. The price of breakfast (not included) was, to put it gently, a mite enthusiastic. All told, though, the place is aces. A slam-dunk recommendation.
