Convenient when:

Hotel American DinesenYou're obsessive about art museums, or you simply want a moderately-priced hotel in a quiet, fashionable neighborhood near the Accademia Bridge.

Don't let the Hotel American Dinesen's name mislead you: It's thoroughly Venetian, occupying an 17th Century palazzo with rooms decorated in the local style. (Some rooms have beamed ceilings, others are awash in brocades, and a few--the "superior canal view rooms"--have balconies facing the San Vio Canal.)

The hotel has its own water-taxi pier, free Internet access, and a porter to haul your luggage up the stairs.
