Hotel Danieli Venice // Located in a restored 14th-century palace on the Grand Canal, the 130-room Hotel Danieli, Venice is only steps from the Piazza San Marco and numerous other Venice landmarks. In warm weather, La Terrazza, the hotel's restaurant, features rooftop dining, with views of the city and the Aegean beyond. Mediterranean and regional cuisine are the menu's focus, and at the Dandolo piano bar, guests will enjoy appetizers and drinks.
Menger Hotel, San Antonio, TX - was built in 1859 only about 100 yards from The Alamo 23 years after the bloody fight in The restaurant is fabulous. Some of the best food I've ever eaten. Their mango ice cream and "house"l baked potatoes are to die for.
