The Dei Dogi Boscolo Luxury Hotel. Just the name invokes a sense of the most lavish lifestyle. Calming sea breezes, the distant sound of the gondolier singing, the morning bell ringing from St. Mark's Square.
On arrival by private boat to this luxurious hotel you walk through the calm private gardens, and into the main lobby, where marble floors meet marble walls reaching up to crystal chandeliers. After a brief conversation with a very friendly and expertly bilingual reception worker I was shown up to my room. I sat on my bed and awaited the night, the sleep, and the day to follow.
At 2 o'clock, I awoke. After seeing water dripping from the ceiling near my bed i jumped up and phoned down to the reception, surprised that there were even people there at such a time i was greated by a gentlemen who didn't seem at all shocked by the reason of my call, and even quite calmly and politely said, 'oh yes, im very sorry about that ma'am someone will be right up'.
Everything was sorted out, very quickly and efficently, and lets just say that for the rest of my stay I was in a room almost as big as my house, at no extra cost, and with more space than I knew what to do with.
On leaving the hotel, just a quick boat ride away from the centre of Venice, I noticed something rather peculiar, and it dawned on me that I might not have been the only person in Venice that night to have been rudely awakened. It was infact mother nature who had so impugnently interupted my sleep, as I found out when looking down upon my feet, to find, I could not see them below the 3 feet of water I was submerged in. As i started to wade down the street a passer-by, recognising me as a tourist, casually turned to me, and said jokingly, welcome to Venice.
The Hotel was just as any other hotel. Clean, polite staff, beautiful surroundings and beautiful food, all just part of the package. The food however was my one concern. Venice is of course a tourist city so the price of everything is bumped up. I hadn't realised though that when you pay big for the Hotel, you pay big for their food. Now, of course I was there at Christmas time when a set-meal was assigned but I was a little taken aback by the 150 euro a head price tag on the christmas meal they provided. And as one fellow guest commented to me, you pay for quality, and NOT for portion size. Lets just say i quietly scoffed a chocolate bar on return to my room. The staff were wonderful, even in the event of a small crisis, the atmosphere was peaceful and not as pompous or pretentious as a more renowned hotel might be. It had the air of a small, exclusive, family-run business, and that, for me, was its best quality by far. Just the fact that you could feel at home, a thousand miles away, is worth every penny. And isn't that what we are all looking for anyway? A home away from home.

Top Local Tips for Venice

Off the tourist route Try if possible to get away from the main tourist drag if you want to eat. These places offer Menu Touristico, basically this means poor quality and expensive prices! There are many good eateries if you seek them out down side streets and alleys away from San Marco. Definately take the Presseco Hills Wine tour if offered. Good plentiful homemade snacks and plenty of wine!!!!!!

The waterbus Take time to study them as they can be very confusing and hard to follow

Out-of-the-way hotels Download a map off the internet before you go. Don't turn a 4-minute walk into an hour-long slog for want of some simple preparation!
