We decided to stay at the Hotel Danieli under our Starwood points while in Venice - it was just such a good price that we really couldn't pass it up. I am sure that if we had paid full price we would have been less enthused. The hotel is gorgeous and in a great location near San Marco. Since using Starwood points perhaps we got the older part of the hotel? But, it was fine and the room was surprisingly large. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The check in concierge was really nice as well. The bed was also surprisingly comfortable. I think we had read some reviews that mentioned the beds being uncomfortable so we were pleasantly surprised by ours.
The room is traditionally decorated - nothing too exciting there - a little dark. The bathroom had been updated which was nice. It seems strange that for people paying that much for rooms that you can have free Wi Fi in the lobby but not in the rooms. I guess it's better than nothing, but it seems a little out of place in a hotel where you wouldn't expect to be charged for something that so many places include as standard. Although, I guess it's not too surprising. As other reviews suggest, the prices for drinks and food at the hotel were quite high, but you're paying for the location. We preferred other restaurants out on the square with the live music if we were going to spend that much on a drink.
Overall we really enjoyed the experience but I wouldn't over pay for a room.
