The five Canaletto suites are exemplary in terms of comfort and amenities: XXL screens, luxury complimentary toiletries in the bathrooms, a stereo system, an iPod station, a DVD/Blu-ray player, etc. The decor, on the other hand, won't be to everyone's liking. The golds and silvers, the abundance of marble and mirrors, the overkill of luxury fabrics, and some beautiful furniture and objects...it's the Italian Armani or Versace-style bling bling luxury that prevails.
The 3 suites on the first, second and third floors have an almost identical layout. Genuine apartments, they have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other a Jacuzzi, a kitchenette, a dining room and a lounge. Known as Giustinian, Gritti and Gradenigo, they each measure 95m² and can sleep up to 4 people.
On the fourth floor, the Grimani suite comes with the added bonus of a terrace with the most beautiful view of Venice encompassing the Campanile (bell tower), Saint Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Square, and the Lagoon in the distance. This is where Italian painter Canaletto created his artwork. Two designer deckchairs furnish the terrace nowadays, from which guests can admire the scenery. Inside, the 75m² suite includes a bedroom, a kitchenette, a dining room, and a bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi. The whole thing is decorated in shades of green, yellow, wood and gold.
Lastly, in the eaves of the 5th floor, the Tiepolo suite is without a doubt the most charming of the suites. 'Only' 55m² and decorated in shades of blue, it is more intimate than the others and affords a view of Saint Mark's Square through the small windows overlooking the Basilica. Although less spacious than the other suites, it nevertheless includes a small kitchen, a dining room, and a bathroom with a chromotherapy-equipped shower and a sauna!
