I guess we're lucky #13...on the list that is. Do not know our room #either. This will be our 4th time there...first with a courtyard view but we don't mind at all. So very glad to be going back!

Question...why are 3 rooms out of commission and which ones?

The deluxe rooms are not sellable due to some legal challenges. With this being your 4th stay (our 3rd) you know how special this place is--especially the staff, nothing short of amazing! How many nights are you staying and will you be joining us for water taxi's to the Ship?

Terry, I have to say I am not a fan of staying at a hotel that is not in Venice proper and would rule out the airport hotel unless you are only staying one night. Trip Advisor is a good resource.

Sorry we missed out on Locanda--sounds like a great place. I emailed them as soon as we booked and they were already sold out to you early birds. We are booked for a two night precruise stay at Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo. It has very good ratings on TA for those that are looking for accommodations. We love Venice too, but this will be our first TA and we are very excited

I have to agree with Carolyn, we stayed in Mestre before our TA, it was a good hotel, great price, no complaints , really.

But this time we are excited to be staying in Venice.

Hi Bev,

Oh my...I thought they had worked out all those legal issues??? It's my understanding that they only have one Deluxe room (#15) ...have things changed? They seem to be offering it other (less busy) times of the year? We are in a Superior Courtyard and happy to have it. And, yes, very glad to share a water taxi to and from LO

I tried to book this hotel but it is not available. Any suggestions? The internet site said October 2013 was not available yet.
