Hotel Features. This hotel opened in 2004, and offers magnificent views of Grand Canal boat traffic and the entire St. Mark's Basin. The hotel was constructed around a restored 17th-century palazzo, and features a courtyard with columns and a molded ceiling. Elevators display a Renaissance-era Grand Canal scene. Two rooms are set aside that contain bookshelves, a glass ceiling, a garden, an Italian wellhead, potted greenery and a collection of rustic artisan's stools. The restored Sala del Ridotto function room and eight salons radiate color with frescoes, marbles, mirrors and stucco moldings that are virtually indistinguishable from original 17th-century palazzo's rooms. This property provides complimentary continental breakfasts each morning. A canal-side terrace with views of the Santa Maria della Salute domed church provides dining enticement at the hotel's Grand Canal Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant's menu features Venetian delicacies. The on-site bar features items such as Italian minestone and salmon-swordfish tartare. A lobby computer provides high-speed Internet access. A concierge assists with planning travel itineraries, and the front desk is attended 24 hours a day.

From Venice Marco Polo Airport:
Approximate distance to the hotel via the Piazzale Roma entry point is 13 kilometres.
From the airport, travel by water or by land across the lagoon to historical Venice. By water, the fastest and most expensive mode is by water taxi. Less expensive and slower is a boat that stops at other islands in the lagoon and terminates adjacent to St. Mark's Square, approximately 50 metres from the hotel. By land there are taxis and buses that travel from the airport to Piazzale Roma, the land-transportation terminus near the train station. From Piazzale Roma, and from the train station on the opposite side of Grand Canal, public waterbuses stop at various points along the Grand Canal and to other waterways.
