Italian Cities, Venice

  • Centrally overlooking the Grand Canal
  • Enchanting views of Venice and the waterfront from the restaurant's terrace

Dating back to 1475 and originally a home belonging to the family of Doge Andrea Gritti, this iconic hotel occupies an enviable corner of Venice overlooking the Grand Canal. After undergoing an extensive renovation, the painstakingly restored hotel is opening its doors to guests once again. Behind the façade’s Venetian Gothic windows are gorgeous public rooms adorned with antique furnishings, marble floors, precious paintings and elegant damasks. The Gritti Palace’s guest rooms are Venetian in style, embracing local stucco and Murano designs that reflect the bygone era of the Baroque and Rococo.

Fine culinary delights are available in the hotel's Restaurant Club del Doge, set amongst marble columns and beneath wooden beams. During the summer, the restaurant opens out onto a waterfront terrace with enchanting views of Venice. The legendary The Gritti Palace has played host to some of Venice’s most illustrious visitors throughout the years, from Ernest Hemingway to international Royalty.

The hotel has 82 rooms (official rating 5 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-11 years.
