About these Venice hotel pages:
We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.

ABOVE: The Hotel Danieli is marked by the leftmost
icon on the waterfront.
The name "Hotel
Danieli" is synonymous with the phrase "Venice luxury hotel." The oldest of
the Danieli's three buildings is a 14th Century palazzo that was built for
the Dandolo family, which produced three Doges (heads of state) during the
heyday of the Venetian Republic.
Today, nearly two centuries after the palace's conversion into a
hotel, the Danieli has a loyal following among the rich and famous (as well as
the merely rich). Its location is ideal for sightseeing and within a short walk
of Venice's most exclusive shops. If you can afford the hotel's
rates--preferably the discounted rates from Venere and Booking.com, and
especially if you can manage a room or suite with a Lagoon view--you're likely
to be rewarded by a memorable experience.
