As you leave the boat platform, turn right and walk along
the water. (Souvenir kiosks and a small public garden will be on your left.)
You'll cross a low metal ramp over a canal.
At the Piazzetta (a large open space with two stone
columns), turn left and walk into the Piazza San Marco.
Cross the Piazza San Marco to the arcades on the north side
of the square. Go left and look for a passageway under the arcades named "Sotoportego dei Dai.")
Go through the passage and cross the small bridge.
Continue into the Calle dei Fabbri, where the Hotel Royal
San Marco's entrance is on the right side of the street.
