This magnificent converted Gothic palace is synonymous with Venetian grandeur and boasts the most prestigious address in Venice.
Once home to a noble Venetian family and favoured by aristocrats on their ‘Grand Tour’ of Europe, this sumptuous hotel is positively dripping in opulence and saturated in history. Stepping into the spectacular lobby atrium is a jaw-dropping experience and you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to a bygone era. The beautiful galleried staircase looks like a film set and the stunning pink marble interiors are draped in shimmering silks and rich velvet, with gold-leaf columns and hand-made Murano glass chandeliers catching the light.
Watching gondolas glide down the Grand Canal from the Danieli’s incredible rooftop terrace (open from April to October) brings the Venice of your imagination to life. The panoramic views of the lagoon, San Giorgio Island and some of the city’s landmark domes are breathtaking, and at sunset it is the perfect spot for an aperitif. Venetian nobles once gathered here to watch the arrival of merchant ships loaded with goods from the Orient; and today the rooftop restaurant ‘Terrazza Danieli’ offers a menu inspired by Marco Polo’s voyages to the Orient.
The rooms and suites here are located in the three palaces that make up the hotel – Dandolo, Danieli Excelsior and Casa Nuova – all of which have a unique style and design. The Premium Deluxe Rooms are located in Palazzos Dandolo have views of the Calle de le Rasse, while those in Casa Nuova have a Venetian Baroque. For a view of the famous Venice lagoon opt for a Deluxe Lagoonview Room.
Overlooking the lagoon and the Island of San Giorgio, moments from St Mark’s Square, and just around the corner from a cluster of beautiful churches and palaces. Approx. 35 minutes by water-taxi from Venice Lido.
