Starwood’s Luxury Collection pulled out all the stops to renovate Venice’s legendary hotel on the Grand Canal, with an estimated price tag of $55 million. The results of the restoration are staggering: more than 200 Rubelli silk wall coverings and textiles, including archive patterns last produced in the 18th century, were re-created, and around 280 antique pieces refurbished, as were some 600 light fixtures, among them dozens of one-off Murano chandeliers. Spacious rooms incorporate rich terrazzo floors and a muted palette, a combination that adds up to understated splendor rather than over-the-top luxury. The bathrooms compensate for their often diminutive size with extravagant cladding in marble from five regions of Italy. We’d love to see a slightly more relaxed lunchtime menu at the canal-front Club del Doge restaurant, but after feasting on a faultless lemon, black pepper, and Parmesan linguine at dinner, it’s gauche to complain.

Room to Book:

The Landmark Grand Canal rooms have cinematic views of Santa Maria della Salute; the Peggy Guggenheim suite is done with mid-century furnishings, original 20th-century art, and framed vintage Hermes scarves.

Insider Tip:

While relaxing in the clubby atmosphere of the hotel's Bar Longhi, take a closer look at the six paintings that hang on the walls. They're by 18th-century Venetian painter Pietro Longhi (hence the bar's name), and are each valued at over $1 million.
