Venice is a beguiling and romantic city, packed with impressive marble palaces and historic cultural landmarks that dot its picturesque lagoon. This unique Italian landscape spans no less than 117 islands, a private one of which is home to the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa. With 250 rooms and suites, all designed by Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun (think soft furnishings, generously sized windows, and separate living areas and ensuite bathrooms), this stunning resort takes a no-holds-barred approach when it comes to facilities. Rejuvenate with a body scrub or wrap or indulge with a couples’ massage or a facial at the spa, a serene oasis with plunge pools, a steam room, and therapy baths. The resort also offers four restaurants and four bars to suit your mood. Head to Cucina Daily Restaurant for breakfast, and grab lunch or dinner at Sagra Rooftop Restaurant for wonderful views over the lagoon. There’s a poolside bar, a lounge bar and a garden grill, plus a delicatessen just a few steps from the boat, so you can snag a classic Italian coffee before heading into Venice.
In the Area
Despite its relatively small size, Venice harbors a wealth of architectural and artistic masterpieces. A complimentary boat shuttle departs the JW Marriott every 20 minutes bound for St. Mark’s Square, Venice’s beating heart. From there, the city’s most iconic sights are all within walking distance, including Doge’s Palace, the Campanile, and the Grand Canal. Art lovers won’t want to miss the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and its portfolio of early 20th-century masterpieces by Picasso, Braque, Dalí, Miró, Pollock, and more. Another must: an excursion to the outlying island of Murano, home to Italy’s famous glass-making masters.
How to Get There
Which is not a good or a bad thing - just a thing. It’s a very well run, clean , big well staffed with good service, American chain. It’s clean and efficient. The rooms are modern and sterile with a functional but new design. The restaurant feels like an airline lounge although the service is excellent. My only criticisms would be that the hotels facilities - restaurants, family area, spa, and transportation services shut down at this time of the year even if the rooms of the hotel remain bookable, which I don’t think is really fair not to mention as a warning on the website. Finally I knew they charged before I booked so I can’t really complain but I also don’t think it’s right to charge €40 for 3 hours of the use of their spa, which from what I could see consisted of a small swimming pool and a steam room; normally I’ve found hotels include this - but c’est la vie. It’s very far from Venice so don’t stay here if it’s your first time to the area. Again, the service is great and the hotel is very well run. It is what it says it is / a big Marriott.
Most helpful and kind and caring staff that I have seen in all of my travels.
Best view, best atmosphere i have seen so far in hotels i have stayed in.
Highly recommended for everyone!
Cannot describe the amazing atmosphere here! You should come and see yourself????????????
Great hotel, great service, breathtaking location. Loved this hotel. Only way to get there is for Saint Marks Square via the hotel’s water taxi. Otherwise you have to take an expensive private water taxi. Beautiful grounds. Spent two nights there and toured Venice most of the time. Staff was extremely accommodating
