The five-star Hotel Metropole isn't quite as well-known to outsiders as the Hotel Danieli (which is just down the Riva degli Schiavoni from the Metropole, toward St. Mark's Square), but it has a following among well-heeled Venetophiles--and especially among guests who appreciate the Metropole's illustrious history, its museum-grade collection of objets-d'art, and the Michelin two-star Met Restaurant.

How to reach Hotel Metropole from the San Zaccaria airport-boat stop:
