We have just enjoyed a superb long weekend here. This really deserves 5 stars. It truly excels in it's service and location. Venice mainland is wonderful, but is very crowded and noisy, so to take the regular and free hotel shuttle to and fro from the Island to the mainland is ideal. The Lido is quiet and beautiful and slow...

We visited Venice for 6 nights so wanted somewhere that was easy to reach St Marks but also with an alternative to the busy city. The Excelsior was everything we wanted. The room amazing with views across the lagoon, watching the sunset on St Marks from our room was something we wouldn't have experienced if we had stayed in the...

I enjoy staying at the Lido but on this occasion I decided to stay at a more glamorous hotel and so I picked the Excelsior. I was not disappointed at all as the overall experience was very good. I found the staff were all courteous and helpful, the service in the restaurant was excellent and I thought the breakfast buffet...

The hotel is situated on the lido island not on one of the main Venice islands but is connected by a private shuttle boat which just added to the experience, crossing the bay to the hotels own mooring was a great experience. The communal areas of the hotel are opulent but our room was small and basic. The hotel has...

My husband and I booked this hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary as we wound down a 2 week trip to Europe. We are your regular run of the mill type people, so 5 star is not our typical hotel stay. I didn't feel too out of pocket though. I felt like everyone treated us very warmly and the staff...

Exceptional, helpful staff. Wonderful location, and enormous comfortable suites. The only mild disappointment was the under furnished grand/main room. Judging from old pictures, the hotel was once incredibly opulent and inviting. Now the lobby and main room are somewhat disappointing. Lacking any real character or thought. Overall though, a good hotel that lacks some character.

I was very fortunate as I spent every summer for 2 weeks at the hotel for 15 years. The hotel became our summer home. Not only was it so pretty the staff was exceptional and remembered us each and every year. Sadly the regular staff has departed and we stopped going to Venice but the memories I have are amazing....

This is simply MAGNIFICENT The Lido location is superb...quiet and discreet Wonderful Venetian architecture and the rooms are like something out of a Moroccan movie. Speaking of rooms.....they are HUGE !!!!!!!

We were pleasantly surprised how beautiful the hotel was. We read some negative reviews and was worried about the hotel that our cruiseline booked us in. No worries as our room was an extra large room at the long of a long hallway on the 1st floor. We had an ocean/beach view from our balcony. Our room must have been...

My wife and I got married at the Excelsior this summer in the Stucchi Ballroom and it exceeded our expectations. From the elegant look of the ballroom and how they'd set it up, to the sumptuous spread that the chef had laid out to the impeccable service provided, they delivered on all fronts and we would highly recommend it again....
