For travelers in search of classic Venetian elegance in San Marco, the city’s epicenter of dining and shopping, Bauers L’Hotel has been the top choice since 1890. Here, well-heeled Venetians sip Bellinis in the hotel’s grand vaulted bars, book appointments for massages and facials at the hotel’s award-winning Palladio Spa, and stop in for a late-night drink at the hotel’s wildly popular BBar. This historic 109-room hotel received several renovations over the decades, including the restoration of the Gothic-Byzantine exteriors on the property’s canal side and the hotel’s Art Deco interiors. For lunch or dinner, reserve a table at De Pesis Restaurant for chef Ciresa’s fusion menu (be sure to order the amberjack tartare with seared eggplant) served with views of the recently restored 17th-century Chiesa di Santa Maria della Salute basilica. This elegant escape is also just a two-minute walk to luxury shopping boutiques, top restaurants, and the great open expanse of historic St. Mark’s Square.

Room to Book:

Bauer L'Hotel's Casanova suites are furnished with handy kitchenettes, spacious living areas, and elegant Venetian interiors.

Insider Tip:

Ask the concierge to reserve tickets for exhibitions at the new Punta della Dogana contemporary art museum in Dosoduro, a two-minute boat journey across the Grand Canal. A collection of paintings, photography, and installations belonging to the François Pinault Foundation are on permanent display.
