We have all had some fantastic hotel experiences — whether it was the service, the location, or commemorating a special event …. and then perhaps some not so great hotel experiences.
In this series, I want to share with you some of the hotels that I have experienced.
It is a pleasure to share with you my review of The Westin Europa & Regina in Venice, Italy. This hotel is a gem in the heart of San Marco, and is conveniently located near museums and transportation options.
Westin Europa & Regina, Venezia
Last stay: May 2015
Rating Scale, for reference:
6=exceptional (rare ranking)
NE = no experience
Price — 4. Venice is expensive, and this is the best-value Starwood hotel in central Venezia.
Hotel Location — 6. Closer to Piazza San Marco than any other Starwood property, there are only 2 bridges to traverse from the Alilaguna stop to hotel.
Ideally located on the Grand Canal directly across from the iconic Santa Maria de la Salute church… It doesn’t get better than this.
Part of traveling means staying at various hotels around the world. There have been some fantastic, above-all-expectations, amazing hotels. Then there have been some misses, some of them quite notable.
I would like to share my impressions of these hotels, hopefully to guide travelers in their choice of hotel.
These are real experiences that I have had with these hotels. We pay our own way 99% of the time, and are not sponsored by any hotels to write good reviews.
(The one exception was the Sofitel San Francisco Bay) in which I won a one-night stay.
I rate the hotels on a five point scale, with an occasional “6” for a truly exceptional impression. These are rare, but I did want to note some extraordinary properties.
Hope these series of hotel reviews are helpful to you!
