From outrageously flamboyant palazzos to minimalist B&Bs, there are hotels in Venice for every taste. Star architects and designers have left their mark in recent years—Jacques Garcia designed some of the rooms at the Danieli, and Matteo Thun worked on the new JW Marriott—while others, like the Bauer Il Palazzo, channel the Venice of yesteryear with damask and glittering chandeliers. When it comes to pricing, though, the same rules apply. Expect to pay a premium for any kind of canal view, while a Grand Canal location can easily tack another digit onto the price.

Before you book, verify certain details over the phone: the size of your room, whether or not it has views of the water, and if it's equipped with an elevator. If you're looking for more affordable accommodations, turn to the 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.
