More Room Types

Set on the Grand Canal, Palazzo Stern impresses with helpful staff, Moorish-style architecture and a small rooftop terrace overlooking Venice's main waterway. According to Fodor's, this "is almost reason alone to stay here" -- on a clear day you can even see as far as the Dolomites. The hotel is in the residential Dorsoduro district, slightly set back from tourist hot spots like St Mark's Square but still within walking distance of the Accademia Galleries and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. For sightseeing further afield, the hotel has its own private dock, and the nearest waterbus stop (Ca’ Rezzonico) is just around the corner.

It's a boutique property, so the emphasis here is on the views and its 15th-century artifacts -- the columned reception, carved staircase and frescoed upstairs lobby are especially striking. Don't expect heaps of amenities, but there is a monastic-style breakfast room done in white with gilded nooks and Gothic windows, and an over-the-top bar with a romantic waterfront patio.

Rooms have traditional bedspreads, exposed beams and plenty of gilding, and all have mosaic-tiled bathrooms with either hydro-massage showers or Jacuzzi tubs. Some have Juliet balconies and canal views, but a few of the standard rooms are lit by skylights. Ornate drapes, Murano chandeliers and parquet floors add to the glamour in pricier rooms, and suites have canal views.
