Lonely Planet review
Venice’s favourite ridotto (gaming hall) circa 1648 is now a solid bet for a glamorous stay along the Grand Canal, thanks to a 2004 overhaul by Milanese architect Piero Lissoni. The revamped Ridotto wing features distinctly modern junior suites in celadon and deep brown, while Monaco wing standard rooms offer more predictable peaches-and-cream Venetian elegance framed in walnut scrollwork. When the main hotel is full, you might be assigned a smaller, darker room in the adjacent annexe, not quite worth the posh price tag. Hit cocktail hour in the groovy glass-front bar on the terrace with Grand Canal views.
Our independent authors have visited Monaco & Grand Canal and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Sestiere di San Marco.
