Lonely Planet review
Evenings seem enchanted in this opulent 1540 Venetian palazzo, with staff fluffing pillows, plying guests with prosecco, arranging water taxis to the opera and plotting irresistible marriage proposals. Classic guestrooms feature kingly beds, silk damask–clad walls, Murano glass lamps and wood-beamed ceilings; go for baroque in frescoed superior rooms with 18th-century vanities and canal vistas. Breakfast is served in the tree-shaded, lily-perfumed garden.
