What else would the look be but Venetian! Eighteenth-century Venetian styling to be precise, with silk- and damask-covered rooms decorated with handsomely framed prints and maps. The hotel lobby impresses with its black, white and gray marble floors and giant Murano glass chandeliers that glow brightly day and night. In the summer, Bar Tiepolo is set up with comfy couches and dining tables for lunch parties and revelers in for a quick aperitif.
Bed and Bath
Room decor at this ancient hotel varies but is universally elegant. Basic classic rooms have blue silk walls, classic Murano chandeliers and beautifully framed prints. Canal Terrace rooms offer a bit more with their unmatched views of the Grand Canal and Santa Maria della Salute. All decor takes a modern twist on classic 18th-century Venetian style in shades of blue, yellow, gold, beige and white, while bathrooms are dressed in polished Italian marble with deep marble tubs and Murano glass sconces.
While the biggest wow factor here will always be the hotel’s perfect location by the Grand Canal, The Westin Europa & Regina’s bars and restaurant are a close second, offering guests the opportunity to splurge on decadent courses or simply snack and sip on cocktails. Chef Alberto Fol, who offers tasting menus and cooking classes, takes simple Veneto and Italian products and adds to them a modern spin (like the delicate prawns over confit tomatoes topped with an airy bubble of burrata). La Chic..chetteria, a cute bar that plays on Venice’s traditional bacaro snack bars, hosts a rollicking aperitif with traditional cicchetti, or small snacks paired with glasses of Prosecco or local white wines.
In the Area
Venice is a city for admiring art and architecture, and there is plenty of it nearby. A five-minute stroll brings guest to famous Saint Mark’s Square, the Bridge of Sighs and the Correr Museum . Within a 15-minute walk, find landmarks like the Santa Maria della Salute, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and Ca’Persaro, which features works by Italy’s modern masters. Drinks at Harry’s Bar or snacks at L’Arco
are highly recommended, as is shopping for exclusive bespoke jewelry at Palwer
or antique glass pieces from NAPE’.
How to Get There
We had one night in Venice after our cruise. This was the best way to end our trip! We had an outside patio overlooking the Grand Canal and a large Church across the water. There was a bottle of wine and snacks waiting for us when we checked in. We got a free upgrade through Marriott, so we had a 2 room suite. It's a new property that just opened in August. It's absolutely beautiful! Wr decided to order room service for dinner because we weren't going to be able to find a better view. They brought the food on a table, wheeled it out on our patio and had candles lit. We ordered 2 different pastas which were just as good as any restaurant!The hotel also has a very nice breakfast buffet. Book room 401!!!!!!
We stayed 2 nights and had an amazing time. Location is great, and it’s so incredible to take your - really good - breakfast in front of the punta della dogana. Attention to details is everywhere, from the beautiful furniture to the heated floor in the bathroom, the exquisite porcelain dishes, the fresh fruits at breakfast...We also had fun trying all the cocktails at the bar!
First of all this hotel is so beautiful inside and out and newly renovated. The rooms are so comfortable and quiet you think you are the only there. The service from the doormen to the concierge, butler and front desk are exceptional. They all speak about 4 + languages. WE were sad to leave after we went to the garden lounge we had a cocktail and a few appetizers. WE had dinner reservations and we felt bad not staying there for dinner it was good. After dinner we went back for a night cap and right across the way we were seranaded by a choir at 10:30 at nite. This was a great way to spend our last nite in Venice. Well done St. Regis Hotel, all the staff we encountered went above and beyond. WE will be back.
