Grand and gorgeous, you can just imagine Casanova hopping over a balcony and disappearing behind an ornate curtain. In the heart of Venice’s main shopping district, each of the 91 rooms has classic Venetian furniture and elaborate furnishings as well as TV, movies, A.C and writing desk.
Some of the pricier suites also have fab views overlooking the breathtaking Grand Canal. It’s very romantic—Woody Allen and Soon-Yi spent their first married days here, and the glamorous Scott Fitzgeralds were frequent guests. For true decadence, opt for the Hemingway Suite where gold brocade curtains and massive chandeliers will greet you when you’ve followed the author’s footsteps back from his old haunt in Harry’s Bar. There’s no spa, so sit back, relax and watch the world float by from the restaurant, with its tasty Venetian treats. Just beware of the staff—not exactly the most helpful in town. 45 minutes by water-taxi from airport.
Room rates from €390.
