A Redefining Renovation

Since the start, the Gritti Palace has housed a unique collection of artworks, an old tradition originating from the noble Pisani family. The ritual remains alive with each successive owner, the Gritti included. The scenic Bar Longhi terrace and the Gritti Epicurean School await you to celebrate your precious moments here and make unforgettable memories.

Or, spend your day at the Terrazza Redentore suite, feeling like a royal. At this wonderful palazzo, art holds immense importance. It adorns the palace's walls in various forms, from the stunning glass chandeliers meticulously handcrafted by the talented glass makers from Murano to the elite Rubelli fabrics decorating suites and guest rooms.


The Gritti Palace first opened its door in 1475, the foundation laid down by Andrea Gritti, the Doge of Venice. Initially an official residence, the Palace then entertained Vatican ambassadors staying in Venice. Finally, at the beginning of the XIX century, the residence was made into the Gritti Palace hotel.

The oasis underwent a meticulous renovation to become the true epitome of luxury that it is today. It now offers its guests a brief and exciting insight into its illustrious and intriguing past. Moreover, vacationers often admire the hotel's exceptional selection of antiques and artwork, all displayed in various private and social spaces.

Famous Guests

The Gritti Palace welcomes all; the famous and the unknown, the civil and the royal. The haven has and continues to cater to several popular guests. Noble families, such as the mighty Grittis and the Pisani's, enjoyed the Palace in the early 18th century. After a few years, it was sold to the widow of Baron Vetzlar, Baroness Susanna d'Eyb. During this period, John Ruskin and his young wife Ettie inhabited the Palazzo Gritti. The place also witnessed him writing his famous book, 'The Stones of Venice.'

Each room has its own charm. For example, the Grand Canal Suites boast pleasant views of the Grand Canal, while the Venetian '700 Style Double Rooms showcase handmade wooden furnishings. Besides, the Deluxe Suites will set you in a romantic mood with their renewed Venetian-style atmosphere. It also allows couples to appreciate the Santa Maria del Giglio in a relaxed setting.

Furthermore, the Presidential Suite - a 1 bedroom Suite - that bears Ernest Hemingway's name will have you feeling like a celebrity. Also, don't forget to ask about the stunning heritage suite and the Somerset Maugham Royal Suite.
