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

Firstly, let me say we were thoroughly impressed with the Gritti and try as I may, I really cannot fault it nor do I really want to!). This weekend was to celebrate my husband's birthday as a surprise. He is a man of few words but even he said it was "awesome!" We treated ourselves to the water taxi service... More

This intimate hotel is so well appointed you will feel you are in another time, but with modern comforts. The staff is perfect, everyone remembers your name, and is on call to be there to assist with any matter. We were in a jaw dropping suite, The Coppa Suite. Our favorite spot was the bar area on water level of... More

This intimate, sumptuous hotel is perfect. Unlike many hotels with a priceless view, the food is divine. The pasta spinosini may have been the best pasta I ever tasted in my entire life, and I am of Italian descent. Staff is helpful and friendly, not the least bit haughty. The concierge set me up with an artist for a morning... More

We stayed in this beautiful old hotel during Venice Biennale. We figured we would be given a terrible room because we were staying during such a busy time and were using Starwood points but we were given an amazing suite that was beautifully decorated. The service was amazing. The bed was very comfortable. They have a beautiful outdoor eating area.... More

This was our first stay at this hotel, and it exceeded our expectations in every respect. From check in to departure everything was perfect. The property is beautifully renovated, and the staff is world class. The housekeeping is impeccable, and the hotel has a great fitness room which I'm sure is not typical in Venice where space is so valuable.... More

I don't write reviews very often. In fact I had to create a profile to write this one. Let me start by saying the Gritti Palace is a beautiful property in a great location on the Grand Canal. The terrace is a great spot to sit and relax and watch the gondolas go by. The service is good, but you... More

This former palace of an eminent patrician family turned into a luxury hotel is a true Venetian landmark. Before the renovation of the hotel two years ago, staying at the Gritti was a bit like living in a museum, all very charming, but with very visible signs of wear and tear. I always expected the old elevators to break down... More

My husband and I stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room we stayed in was very large with beautiful Venetian decor.

They just finished renovating after 15 months and it looks like the 35 million was put to good use. What we particularly liked about the renovation was that it was keep in the traditional style rather than making it a modern hotel. Classy and luxurious. Could ask for more than breakfast or drinks on the terrace on the Grand Canal.... More
