It’s a canal-side palazzo with a twist: Each of the 50 rooms in the 19th-century monastery turned merchant’s residence—located on one of the best spots on the Grand Canal—forsakes traditional grandeur for a design-forward sensibility, thanks to bleached-wood floors and sinuous, vibrantly hued sofas.
Best for Secret Serenades: The echoing arcade in the courtyard, centered around an ancient well and a bamboo garden. Doubles from $286.
