Venice 5-star Hotel Accommodation Guide

Location: Cannaregio Castello Dorsoduro San Marco
San Polo Santa Croce Lido Giudecca

Hotel Danieli ***** (Castello)

The Hotel Danieli is an expensively - and expensive - restored palace "synonymous with the splendour and romance of Venice" located along the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront. The hotel's main building is the original 14th century palace of Doge Dandolo's family, a Venetian gothic landmark lavishly appointed with pink marble, stained glass, ceilings decorated with golden leaves, Murano glass chandeliers and antiques. There are panoramic views of the lagoon from the rooftop restaurant, La Terrazza Danieli. The hotel's services include child-care and meeting facilities. If you're paying the money, make sure you get a room overlooking the lagoon.

Bauer Il Palazzo ***** (San Marco)

The Bauer Il Palazzo, is the "intimate boutique hotel" part of the former Hotel Bauer Grunwald & Grand; it overlooks the Grand Canal and has a private boat landing for elegant arrivals. It also has a stunning Gothic facade, lavish decor and furnishings "designed for comfort". The Bauer Hotel behind it is equally luxurious but doesn't have the views.

Gritti Palace ***** (San Marco)

Directly overlooking the Grand Canal, the luxurious, and need I say it, expensive Gritti Palace is one of the world's most celebrated hotels. Commissioned in 1525 as the residence of the Doge of Venice, Andrea Gritti, the building was later used as the official residence of the Vatican's ambassadors. Over the centuries, the Gritti Palace has welcomed kings and queens, prime ministers and presidents. Its Club del Doge restaurant is another, if costly, attraction.

Westin Excelsior Palace ***** (Lido)

The charm of The Westin Excelsior on Venice Lido, with its exclusive private beaches, is legendary. Look forward to a rejuvenating vacation when The Westin Excelsior, Venice Lido opens its doors for another season of bustling activity and blissful relaxation. Overlooking the beach and just a short boat ride from Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square), the hotel spotlights Venetian cuisine at its three restaurants.
