Hotel Features. The four-storey Dei Dogi, A Boscolo Luxury Hotel was originally an 18th-century French ambassador's residence and then a convent. Two six-foot-tall Murano-glass chandeliers and stained-glass doors decorate the high-ceilinged, marble-floored lobby. A gallery overlooks the lagoon.
Tuscan-red walls and bare beams decorate the Giardino di Luca Restaurant. International and Venetian dishes are served at tables decorated with silver plates and Murano-glass candleholders. Guests can enjoy alfresco dining on the terrace all day, weather permitting. Murano-glass chalices decorate the American Bar, which serves drinks, snacks and six whisky varieties from noon til late.
The Dei Dogi, A Boscolo Luxury Hotel offers meeting rooms, business services and high-speed Internet connections in public areas (surcharge).
High walls conceal the courtyard garden, and shaded pathways lead to the lagoon. Complete with arched bridge, fountain, picnic spot and terrace, the garden retains some of its original landscaped features. The hotel has massage treatment rooms and guests receive complimentary entry to a nearby fitness centre.
Guestrooms. Murano-glass chandeliers, marble desks, Oriental rugs and gilt-framed mirrors decorate the luxurious Dei Dogi, A Boscolo Luxury Hotel's climate-controlled guestrooms, some with canal or garden views. Rooms, furnished with gold-and-red silks and 18th- century antique and replica furniture, all have satellite television, minibars and safes.
Expert Tip. The hotel is a block away from Venice's Madonna dell'Orto church. It is renowned for paintings by 16th-century painter Tintoretto, a former Cannareggio resident, who is buried there.
