The St. Regis Venice
Butler service, Italianate gardens and generous views of the Grand Canal… The new St. Regis Venice (pictured above and on previous slide) encapsulates la dolce vita indeed. The hotel is across the canal from the marvellous Punta della Dogana, and is steps away from La Fenice Opera House and San Marco Square. It claims to have the biggest waterfront real estate among all hotels in Venice, and most of the 169 rooms come with either private terraces or Juliet balconies. The best spot to lap in all the Grand Canal views is the private garden terrace – ideally with an Aperol spritz in hand.
