Hotels in Venice
You'll find countless hotels in Venice (more than 400, to be exact), since the city's tourism industry has been vital to the economy for ages. Most, not surprisingly, are quite charming. But it's important to verify certain elements on the phone before you book. For example: The size of your room, whether or not it has views of the water, and if it's equipped with an elevator.
In the heart of the city lie the best hotels in Venice, those with stunning canal views and excellent amenities. Built on the Grand Canal, the opulent Hotel Gritti Palace is filled with antiques (think Murano glass chandeliers). Bed and breakfasts have been on the rise and one standout is Ca'del Pozzo near St. Mark's Square.
Or, stay in true Venetian style at the Hotel Ca' Vendramin. If you're looking for more affordable accommodations, turn to the less expensive guesthouses on the outskirts of the city. Regardless of where you decide to overnight, it's essential to book months in advance—even for the off-season—since hotels in Venice are in such high demand.
