In Venice, back in history

So that you don't mind that I'm talking about a non-Marriott, I will be staying at the Courtyard Venice Airport my last night here.  But I got 3 nights for $640.00 at the Pesaro Palace on and literally feel I've gone back in time.  I never expected the kind of room I got, though I wrote them in Italian in advance that I would like a canal view.  I have an enormous, antique-filled room on a high floor (4th is high here) with gold brocade wall coverings,  a spa bathroom and  three open-out windows on the Grand Canal.  It is magnificent, and literally right at the Ca' d'Oro vaporetto stop, and I can easily picture all the historical scenes I've read about and seen in Venetian history. Breakfast and wifi are free and the people are super friendly.  In fact had I got one of the 'lesser' rooms it would have looked out on the gardens of the Ca' d'Oro. WOW!!!


I will also duly report on my 2nd trip to the Airport Courtyard after I get back. WOW again.  (And I'm not THAT easily impressed.)
