The list of former guests is impressive ranging from Hemingway, Churchill, Liz Tayor, Bacall and Bogart, to Springstein, Jagger, Cruise, Winslet and more. There are 82 rooms and 21 suites. The hotel was recently refurbished. It is truly magnificent The service is excellent. The Concierge Staff was... More

We do not usually venture into the rarefied atmosphere of luxury hotels, but a good online deal got us to the Gritti Palace for my daughter's 18th birthday. It was as splendid as we expected -- antique furniture, handpainted walls, elevator walls of inlaid wood. The location was truly spectacular. We watched the Redentore fireworks explode behind the silhouette of... More

Complementary prosecco in our room upon arrival. birthday cake arranged for Hubby at dinner. The rooms (and the whole of the hotel) are Beautifully furnished and are spotlessly clean.... More

I took the vapareto (15 Euro) from the airport and the stop was just minutes for the hotel. Our room was at the back of the hotel, so no view, we looked out onto an other building (we had cashed in points, so I am guessing that you do not get as good a room as paying guest). We did... More

From arrival by private water taxi to departure by same, this was by far the most gracious, welcoming, and service-focused hotel that we have ever visited. Our room was sumptuous - spacious, airy with high ceilings, appointed with lovely furnishings, all dressed with silk paneled walls, silk drapes, and Murano chandeliers. The closets were finished to the hilt, and there... More

Among the most expensive drinks I have ever bought - Euros 27 for a Beer and a White Wine !! I know the Locations counts, but ...... With this place it is everything.

The Gritti Palace has become my one of my personal favorite hotel in the world, on par with the Four Seasons in Florence. There is an air of discreet exclusivity about this place, filled with antiques and fine paintings. A fusion of culture and understated luxury. The marble foyer with its mosaic floors is even regularly perfumed! The hotel is... More

Wear your breezy casual summer wear with fabulous accessories to flash your style. Dolce & Gabbana anything is the top or go sleek Prada to contrast the ornate backdrop that is Venice. Hotel breakfast sumptuous & on time. Coffee could be stronger and more storage would be helpful, but who cares?! There's lots of fabulous Italian Vogue & AD magazines... More

We ended a 3-week trip to Italy with a few days at the Gritti Palace. Words can't describe how great an experience this hotel is. Its a bit pricey for sure, but worth the splurge. You'll never forget it. We've been to the Cipriani and the Danieli before and the Gritti Palace tops them by a country mile in my... More
