Hotel Cipriani is the perfect place to stay when visiting Venice because you are right next to St. Mark's Square with access to all of the hustle and bustle, but you are also secluded on an island, able to relax and enjoy the vacation and down-time. I stay at only the upper eschelon of hotels, and this hotel is right on par with those.
The Hotel has its own dock at St. Mark's Square, where a boat is stationed 24/7, so you never have to wait. The hotel will drive you to the St. Mark's Square whenever you want via a free 5 minute boatride. It docks at the Hotel Cipriani dock, and then you are off to explore Venice. Whenever you are finished, you return to St. Mark's via gondola or your own feet and then board the hotels boat which awaits you at the dock. Then you return to the wonderful hotel and relax poolside, in your room, or at one of the restaurants. The staff were wonderfully pleasant. The food was good, but not exceptional.
My favorite part of this hotel was the fact that it was so secluded and reached by boat, but also so close to St. Mark's Square that you could do a few hours of shopping and then relax poolside as though you were on a beach vacation. It was exactly what I wanted and I wouldn't hesitate staying there next time I visit Venice.

- Cipriani Hotel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Cipriani embodies 50 years of glamour and legend, la dolce vita Venetian style, with a peerless view to the grand Palladian Church of San Giorgio. This is the Venice of everyone's imagination. The Cipriani is only three storeys high and has that classic, comfortable, "lived-in" grandeur. It is a perfect blend of historic and contemporary Venice - opulence tempered by simple elegance; antiques and works of art offset by innovative touches of unbridled luxury. The grounds are breathtaking: small gardens, expansive lawns with vines clinging to ancient brick walls or trellises and an Olympic-sized heated swimming pool, as well as a clay tennis court and a wellness centre.
