Nothing to show.
We just spent two nights in Venice with my children and parents, with three rooms between us. Two of those were adjoining rooms, which we had requested before our arrival (if available). All three were unique and all three were very well maintained. Indeed, the hotel seemed as though it had been renovated just last week, not almost a decade ago. And it still oozes Venetian style and luxury. That includes the lobby, where I spent an hour one evening just taking in the beautiful decor, and the bar, where we had a nightcap one night with the friendly bartender. Staff were friendly and gracious; they were able to accommodate an early arrival into town following a night train. Although we booked with points, we never felt treated like second-class citizens.
3 of the best nights of my life were spent at the Gritti for my 30th birthday. The hospitality team is second to none. Everyone recognized us by name when we’d return to the hotel after a day exploring the city. Big thanks to Carlotta (sorry if I didn’t spell it right) for going above and beyond. Then there’s the hotel, with an incredible sense of space. There wasn’t a single compromise on quality with the furnishings. Not a single compromise of quality of food. Breakfast was an absolute treat every morning, and that Veal Milanese for dinner was heavenly. The gods smiled on me and upgraded my first couple of nights to a balcony room directly overlooking the Grand Canal. I would wake up as early as possible to sit and watch the city slowly awaken. Magical doesn’t begin to describe it. For me there’s no other way I can ever experience La Serenissima again if not at the Gritti Palace.
Sadly not a good experience. So looking forward to dining in the restaurant to celebrate my husband’s significant birthday delayed 2 years due to CoVid. Reservation made and confirmed but corporate booking took over whole restaurant and we ended up in the bar great location and bar staff but had we known we would have booked else where for our meal. So disappointing as we we staying in the hotel And this was a special evening.
