One never knows what to expect from a boutique hotel; they can be lovely or just really old. The Hotel Rialto definitely fell into the lovely category but then jumped several notches with the service. Little touches like the complementary cheese plate delivered to our room (it had nuts so those with allergies would want to mention that), noticing that we had purchased a bottle of wine and setting that up in our room for us as well, and the complementary continental breakfast that wasn't the same old stale muffin and old coffee but giant croissants, a cappuccino and a latte just kept making the experience more memorable. Every hotel associate greeted us with the most sincere smile and was obviously there to be of any assistance we might possibly need. Next time, I would make reservations for dinner at Veneto as the menu looked really interesting. I am recommending this hotel to all my friends- and now to you :o) One note: parking is a couple of blocks away so drop your bags at the front desk when you check in.
