As you pull up to the private dock there is already a sense of grandeur. Elegant hotel staff welcome you into the splendour of this famed palazzo. Murano glass everywhere, mirrors, polished floors just absolutely opulent. The check in was cozy and relaxed, the staff at the front desk charming. The offered me a room upgrade which I was thrilled about which had prosecco and some gorgeous roses waiting for me. The room was large, especially for a Venice hotel, and had that 18th century palatial trimings of gilted glamour, yet not the kind that many Venetian hotels of faded and worn dark decor, here at the Gritti the room was light and refined. It still had the grandness but there was contemporary confort. The marbled bathroom also had plenty of space. A bathtub and a shower (thank you! I love a hotel bathtub!) and a generous supply of Acqua di Parma bath products. I especially loved the bath salts. Oh and the warm marble floors were fabulous. While I didn't have dinner at the formal dining room, I did enjoy elegant evenings at their most gorgeous bar in Venice the Bar Longhi, named after the 18th century artists' paintings hanging in the bar. You really cannot get more palatial than that! The only down side of the Gritti is the lack of rooms with water views. That would have made my stay absolute perfection. Maybe next time... I expected to like the Gritti but I liked it much more than I expected. I found the service impecable and very pleasant, very helpful and professional. Thank you so much to the team. I will definitely be going back.
Went to the Gritti Palace for lunch on a lovely sunny day in Winter, The most amazing service from start to finish from all staff, I had the best club sandwich EVER, would highly recommend This is a must visit in Venice
A classic property in all senses of the word. Attentive service, pro-active service, luxury all-around. The restaurant is a must try. The Staff is uniquely equipped to satisfy any and all requests. One of the very few remaining old school hotels.
