The Gritti Palace


The majestic Gritti Palace is where history and culture are met with renewed Venetian style. A place of exceptional art and elegance, the restored Gritti Palace retains its reassuringly intimate and familiar feel. The Gritti is known for impassioned service, a delectable culinary experience and an intimate wellness haven. The reference point for the world’s elite at international city events such as the Biennale, Carnival and the Venice Film Festival.


After a meticulous restoration, explore the hotel’s original wooden ceilings, entrance flooring, dressing-table mirrors and 18th century wall lamps, handmade in Murano, and more. The epitome of luxury.


One of the features of the hotel are the many beautiful suites. In the Presidential Suite that bears his name, Ernest Hemingway, who considered The Gritti Palace his home in Venice during the late 1940s and early 1950s, composed many passages of his novel “Across the River and Into the Trees.”

Floor-to-ceiling French doors open onto stand-up balconies that afford rare views of the Grand Canal. Evoking the sense of place of a Venetian Palace on the Grand Canal during the 18th Century, the suite’s imposing design features stucco walls and ceiling cornices with Venetian Rococò motifs, and Ernest Hemingways own club chair.


And do not miss the Riva Lounge, an elegant summer terrace in a unique location. Tailored around the materials used in the design of the Riva Yacht, the look and feel of this seasonal 36 seat, 55 square metre Riva Lounge on the iconic Gritti Terrace reflects the Riva Aquarama Lounge at the Monaco Yacht Club.

“Experience Riva elegance shore-side: a place where connoisseurs gather for the quintessential Riva experience. Elegantly Riva. Essentially Gritti.”


All bookings for suites and rooms booked through L’ Marquis qualify for BEARMILES, and all L’e Marquis clients at the hotel will be given a special complimentary Gritti Bellini in the Riva lounge.
