Convenient when:

Hotel Metropole terrace and tableYou want a deluxe hotel on the Venice waterfront, but the Danieli seems a bit too obvious or overpriced.

The Hotel Metropole is about 1/3 km from the Piazza San Marco, on the waterfront overlooking the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront near (but not immediately behind) the San Zaccaria and Pietà waterbus stops. The public rooms and guestrooms are furnished in traditional style, with period pieces and collections of antique objets d'art in the lobby to remind you that you're a long way from the Omaha Hilton. Other amenities include a "citrus garden" with palm trees and a Michelin-starred restaurant.
