About Us

Overlooking the Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace boasts one of the most enthralling views of the lagoon city, spanning from the island of San Giorgio Maggiore past Punta della Dogana and the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

This Luxury Collection Hotel is a historical treasure where heritage and culture have blended with renewed Venetian style. A place of exceptional art and elegance, the restored Gritti Palace has retained its reassuringly intimate and familiar feel. With attentive service, a delectable culinary experience, and new avenues for relaxation and pleasure, The Gritti Palace is a refined version of its iconic self.

The epitome of luxury, the Gritti Signature Suite Collection showcases the hotel’s rich historical past. The Gritti Palace features 61 luxurious guest rooms and 21 sumptuous suites, including suites with impressive canal views which reflect the intimacy of a private residence and provide a truly distinctive experience that uniquely captures the heritage of the palace and the cultural and artistic roots of the city.

All suites, the Palazzo Canal View Suites, the Patron Canal View Suites and the Heritage Suites, were designed by Chuck Chewning of Donghia and feature treasures such as hand blown Murano glass, archival historic fabrics, the finest Italian marbles, and rare books and objects that are unique to The Gritti Palace. Every suite is a work of Venetian art in itself, with the latest technology, sumptuous beds and spacious bathrooms.



Stretching along the waterfront, The Gritti Terrace is a popular place for an informal late lunch, afternoon tea, or a glass of champagne until 6pm from April to October, while indulging in the spectacular views of the Grand Canal and its famous gondolas.


With its exquisite etched Venetian mirrors and 18th century paintings, the Longhi Bar features some of the best Bellini, Negroni and Martini cocktails in Venice, an outstanding soufflé menu, as well as a Venetian Cicchetti experience, ideal for sharing and late-night lounging.


Tribute to Venetian culinary traditions with creations that reflect the authentic Venetian gourmet cuisine and a renewed attention for seasonal ingredients. The atmosphere is casual chic during the day, with a selection of seafood delicacies, and formal during the evening.


Tailored around the materials used in the design of the Riva Yacht, the Riva Lounge on the iconic Gritti Terrace is a place where connoisseurs gather and enjoy indigenous cocktail creations, like The Riva Cocktail, and light lunch during summertime.



An intimate ambiance that reflects the essence of a day by the Mediterranean, the Acqua di Parma SPA offers natural treatments for a memorable experience in its private suites with steam bath.

Best of the Best

Venice’s most celebrated hotel, The Gritti Palace emerged from a carefully designed refurbishment more ravishing than ever. Each painting, objet d’art and chandelier has been painstakingly restored by Venetian artisans; every inch of velvet, damask and sumptuous silk wall covering has been replaced with archival patterns. Accommodations have been reconfigured so that the 82 individually decorated rooms and suites are larger and more inviting. Restaurant Club del Doge claims the city’s loveliest dining room view; or enjoy drinks at the Riva Lounge. Be sure to check out the Riva boat experience, exclusively for guests of the hotel.

Advisor Tip

Next to the hotel, a gondola will take you to the other side of the canal, which is an easy and much quicker walk to the Guggenheim Museum. –Lucy Butler Los Angeles, California

The Gritti Palace was easily the nicest hotel I have ever been in. Upon arrival, we received a double upgrade. The staff was extremely helpful with all of our questions. The outdoor bar was to die for. I would have a hard time going back to Venice and not staying at The Gritti Palace.
