Venice-based Gritti Palace, a member of The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, scheduled to reopen at the end of January

Re-opening of the Gritti Palace, an historic building, facing directly onto Venice’s Grand Canal, just moments away from St. Mark’s Square, is scheduled to re-open on 31 January 2013. The hotel is part of The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide brand whose members include the most luxurious hotels in the world including 40 facilities in Europe and 80 throughout the rest of the world. 

Palazzo Gritti, together with other historic European hotels such as, for example,  the Prince de Galles in Paris, is one of the iconic structures in which the international chain invested 200 million dollars

Following restoration works, lasting for 15 months, the Gritti Palace will be unveiled to the public in all of its splendour at the same time as the start of the Venice Carnival and the Biennale of Contemporary Art. The new, interior design project was entrusted to US-based design firm Donghia which, in collaboration with Rubelli, a world-renowned Venetian textiles company, drew inspiration from the original building, erected in 1475 when it was first the private dwelling of a noble family and subsequently the residence of the Doges.

Rare fabrics, taken from the historic archives, marvellous lamps and artistic works in Murano glass were used for the restoration. In addition to its stunning terrace, the Gritti Palace will feature 61 rooms and 21 suites, the Club del Doge restaurant and the Longhi Bar, both refurbished, the famous Gritti Epicurean School, the Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo SPA and the Explorer’s Library.
