Fodor's Review

Rooms in this extensively renovated palace overlook the Grand Canal or the bustling Campo Santo Sofia, and plush, traditional furnishings and extensive use of marble and blond wood trim contribute to a relaxed yet gracious ambience. Rooms 302 and 303 have balconies overlooking the campo, and a rooftop terrace offers truly spectacular views of Venice. The top-floor junior suite has its own terrace. All rooms have hydro-massage bathtubs.

Hotel Foscari Palace Review

Location is great. Right on Grand Canal; gondola crossing to Rialto market right there. Vaporetto Ca d'Or is only one building away. Easy walk or quick vaporetto ride from train station. Small deck, one table, on waterfront for cappucino or cocktail. Lobby was quite comfortable and nicely decorated. So was small bar, although no one ever there (no patrons, no bartender). Bathroom fancy marble, but dated. Useless super-shower: multi-jets

sprayed all over. Stayed in Superior Room with window/view onto Piazza S. Sofia; could see canal if you stuck your head out. Beds and pillows provided basic comfort; you can sleep because you're tired. Pretty quiet location for Venice. Room decor was basically okay but dated. Room safe and stocked mini fridge provided. Could not get a decent Wi-Fi signal anywhere, including lobby. During the two days, got a snippet of a connection for two minutes once, while in lobby, then it dropped again. Front desk was helpful and efficient when asked for assistance with reservations, but was not overtly warm or welcoming. Were I to do it again, would pay the extra bucks for the canal-view room. Actually, were I to do it again, would probably stay somewhere else. Maybe Palazzo Stern Hotel or Hotel Bauer. Both looked lovely.
