My wife and I stayed at the Russo Palace for 3 nights at the start of Feb 06. It is situated in Lido which can be reached by a 50 minute water bus ride from Marco Polo Airport. It is then a five minute walk from the water bus stop in Lido to the hotel.
The first thing that struck me about this hotel was how clean everything was. It is a fairly new hotel and all the decor still looks brand new and everywhere is spotless.
Our room was a little on the small side, as was the bathroom but it was functional enough and the bed was nice and comfortable.
Breakfast was good if a little uninspired - cereal, bread, ham, boiled eggs, fruit juices and coffee. The view from the breakfast room towards St. Marks square is great.
It takes about 10 mins by waterbus to reach St. Marks square from the Lido and costs 5 Euros each way which I thought was quite reasonable. Venice is lovely, but it was quite nice to return to Lido at the end of the day which is a lot quieter than Venice itself at this time of year.
