Venice is "a city unlike any other" (Fodor's), with its canals, ornate churches, museums and architecture. Explore its sights from the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal, right on the waterfront.
The traditional hotel is in the Santa Croce district and overlooks the Grand Canal, Venice's key waterway. It is a 20-minute walk from the Gallerie dell'Accademia, which has a fine collection of art dating from the 14th-18th centuries. St Mark's Square, where you'll find the Doge's Palace, St Mark's Basilica and the Torre dell'Orologie, is 25 minutes' walk away. Santa Lucia train station is a five-minute stroll from the hotel.
The hotel's La Cupola restaurant serves authentic Venetian fare, or you can stop off for an aperitif at the Carlton Café. The rooftop terrace (open May-September) offers panoramic city views.
Rooms are decorated in 18th-century Venetian style, with Murano glass chandeliers, ornate furnishings and rich damask fabric wall coverings. Superior Rooms are larger than the standard Classic Rooms. Patio Rooms are more modern and overlook the gardens. All rooms have free Wi-Fi.
