Reviews for Boscolo Venezia, Autograph Collection
This was my second time in Venice and I had a good, but not great experience at Hotel Boscolo. I really struggled with this review. I wanted to give Boscolo 5 stars, because the front desk manager (I think his name was Claudio) really tried his best to make us happy. I applaud him and the hotel for this effort, but there were too many small issues that made me stick with a 3 star review. First off, you must know that this hotel is truly â€śoff the beaten pathâ€ť in Venice. I do not think the hotel rate properly reflects the location disadvantage. You can definitely stay at a nice hotel more centrally located for 350 EUR/night. It takes a solid 20-30min to get to St Markâ€™s Square after making your way through the streets/crowds. The hotel does offer complimentary boat shuttle service to/from St Markâ€™s though, which is a great option. There are some restaurants close by, but thereâ€™s nothing else without walking quite a ways. During my previous trip to Venice, I stayed right on the Grand Canal. If I go again, Iâ€™d definitely stay more central, despite the heavier crowds. Iâ€™ve stayed at a lot of hotels in Europe and am a loyal SPG customer. I only recently started staying at Marriott properties due to program merger. In general, no Marriott hotel honors program status and loyalty the way an SPG property would. Upon checkin, I asked if there were any upgrades and the lady advised that there were not. She took us to our room on the first floor. It was spacious, but extremely dark and overlooked a building (you could reach your hand out and touch the building). It was also just off the atrium lobby. Even with the door closed, it sounded like you were sitting in the middle of the lobby, much too loud for anyone to sleep through. We immediately contacted the front desk and asked to be moved. The lady advised us that there was nothing else available (they were â€śsold outâ€ť) and was rude in her attitude. My husband, more upset than me, walked down to the front desk and said that if they didnâ€™t change our room, weâ€™d find someplace else to stay. Thatâ€™s when Claudio got involved and found us another room on a more quiet floor with a canal view. We were very happy, but I cannot look past my initial experience. Thereâ€™s no brand loyalty recognition at Marriott properties. If I had booked at the Westin, Iâ€™m confident that this wouldnâ€™t have been an issue. The spa facilities were depressing. The sauna could only hold 2 people and the Turkish bath wasnâ€™t even warm. Not everyone goes to Venice for the hotel spa, but after a long day of walking around it wouldâ€™ve been nice to have a nice spa to relax at! On the positive side, the breakfast buffet/options were very nice. The concierge was very friendly and helped us resolve an issue with Murano Glass Factory. Thereâ€™s a beautiful private garden as well! And as stated before, Claudio was truly wonderful with his kindness and service. I just couldnâ€™t look past the location and our poor experience with trying to find a suitable room.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in October, 2017 and were satisfied with our accommodations. Our room was comfortable although without enough chairs or space to relax comfortably. This was more than made up for with the second floor "lobby" where there is not only a great deal of space but also some marvelous art work. The location is ideal for wandering around Venice and the hotel provides boat travel to St. Marks and to Murano free of charge. We did not eat in the hotel, except for a pizza our first night after a long day of travel. It was just fine.

Very chic and historic Hotel, very different to others Marriott brand. We stay there for one night , location perfect away from heavy tourist area. The room No 218 is dated and well maintained, The manager was very friendly to us , he help us to pay the taxi boat as we did not have enough Euro only Card and Aussie dollars on us. We did not enjoy all the facilities as we check in at 4 pm and check out around 1 pm.

This lovely 300 year old building is a lovely hotel situated in the old Jewish neighborhood of Venice. The neighborhood is residential with restaurants and shops a short walk away. So happy to be a 25 minute walk from San Marco square and the crowds! The rooms were spacious and lovely. The staff took great care of us. The breakfast in the hotel started the day on the right foot. There are canals at the front and the back of the hotel. There is a lovely garden. I wouldnâ€™t stay anywhere else in Venice.

I'm a fan of Marriott's Autograph Collection and was keen to try one of the older properties - the Boscolo is a former palace and embassy and boasts the largest private garden on any hotel in the Venitian 'mainland'. Pre-arrival communications were excellent and we were met at the airport by a very efficient young lady to who took us to a private bus for the short trip to the airport jetty, where a private taxi was waiting for the 20 minute transfer to the hotel. This is located in the Cannaregio district so is closer to Marco Polo than most parts of the city. The staff are very well trained and efficient and could not be faulted - even the porters spoke excellent English. The negative reviews surprise me - although I guess if you were expecting a modern 5* anywhere in Venice proper you would probably be disappointed. My room was small but immaculately prepared. Nice bathroom with good quality toiletries and large fluffy towels. Wifi was free for Marriott Rewards card holders and was the great breakfast with hot dishes cooked to order. The hotel offers free transport to and from St Mark's Square and Murano (if you want to visit a glass factory). Lots of local restaurants within a 10 minute walk - also a pharmacy, small supermarket and a great ice cream parlour!. A little further away (15 minutes) is Calle de Pistor with adjoins lots of shops and restaurants.
