Hotel Excelsior Venice, Venice
Nice hotel but location should be considered
This is the second time we have stayed at the Excelsior. It's a lovely hotel but is more of a resort since it has the pool and beach. Last time we came in the summer and could enjoy more of those amenities but this time did not. The one disadvantage is that you have to take the free water taxi to and from San Marco Square. If there is bad weather you cannot go to Venice or could get stuck in Venice. We were fortunate and just looked for fog and beat the taxi cancellations but others had to take the water bus to the lido stop and then a land taxi to the hotel. Other island hotels with the same situation have water taxi shuttles that have radar so weather would not strand their guests. It's just something to consider when booking at the Excelsior. From now on, we will stay in Venice so we are not stressed about the transportation to our hotel. But if you have kids or want a vacation more than Venice the Excelsior would be perfect for you.

A Pleasant Altnernative to Staying in Venice
We stayed here three nights after one night in Venice. The comparison was remarkable in that the Excelsior was quiet compared to the maddening crowds of Venice. Yet, it was but a boat ride away. The one difficulty was figuring out how to get there when the Excelsior's boat does not take luggage. The answer for us was a water taxi which cost 90 Euros. There is public water transportation that can get you to Lido for far less and you can then get a taxi direct to the hotel. We arrived on October 1st and unfortunately all but one restaurant and one bar remained open for service. We did have a very good complimentary breakfast downstairs in the area that was otherwise closed off. The service at the hotel was exceptional with assistance being provided for free passage to and from a Murano Glass Factory where you could watch the artisans work and can then visit their showroom. The Excelsior also offered free boat service to and from their dock at San Marco that ran on the half hour. The bar was expensive but the drinks were good. Their cheese plate is a work of art. We did not have dinner at the Excelsior's restaurant and preferred the less expensive local restaurants that were within walking distance. What I liked best was simply the escape from the Venice crowds (particularly the cruise ship set) with the ease of coming and going as we preferred. Our "city view" room on the 7th floor was spacious & offered a great view and the hotel borders the nice beach of Lido.

Take your own hairdryer - then enjoy your stay!
Only thing that wasn't great - out of all the bad hotel hairdryers, this was the worst.

Luxury on the Lido
Loved our 2 night stay at The Hotel Excelsior. It was the end of our 2 weeks in Italy, touring around to 4 different cities. This was the perfect place to be able to both relax and tour around Venice. Room was spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage for clothes and toiletries in the vanity area. The complimentary water shuttle was great and enabled us to go back and forth easily a couple times a day. Breakfast and mid day appetizer and drinks were amazing. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. My only negative comments are: Air conditioning was not cold enough. Complimentary waters would have been a nice touch.
