The Gritti Palace Hotel in Venice is a five-star establishment of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Luxury Collection. It has enjoyed great popularity among diverse celebrities as far back as the 20th century: Ernest Hemingway once described The Gritti Palace as “the best hotel in a city of great hotels”.
Commissioned in in 1525 as the private residence of the Gritti family and the Vatican’s ambassadors to Venice, the Palazzo Gritti today is an historic palace in the lagoon city. After extensive renovations, the building has now been restored to new glory. Exclusive Kaldewei Classic Duo and Puro baths in the bathrooms ensure that guests of the Gritti Palace can bathe in luxury.
With constructions lasting 15 months, more than 1,000 staff and costs totalling EUR 35 million, the restoration of the Gritti Palace attracted special attention in the Italian lagoon city. After its renovation, the hotel now features 82 guest rooms including 21 sumptuous suites with an interior inspired by Venice’s rich history and cultural heritage, and such illustrious figures as Ernest Hemingway, Peggy Guggenheim and Somerset Maugham.
The paragon of luxury, the Redentore Terrazza Suite is a spectacular two storey suite with an unparalleled 250 square metre rooftop terrace offering an incomparable panoramic view of the city. Its extraordinary design is a creation by Chuck Chewning from Donghia, Inc., whose great love of detail has revived the extraordinary atmosphere of the hotel. Fifteen different types of Carrara marble are used and traditionally laid in the Gritti Palace. Venice’s most noted craftsmen further ensured an authentic restoration of furniture, fabrics and accessories.
Matching the stylish design of the guest rooms, the bathrooms of the Gritti Palace are furnished with baths made of steel enamel: the Classic Duo Oval models conceived by Italian design office Sottsass Associati are elaborately set in marble guaranteeing an exclusive bathing experience. The Puro baths were devised by Kaldewei’s Design Centre and are available in three different sizes depending on the type of room: from 160 x 70 cm up to a comfortable 180 x 80 cm. All Kaldewei baths in the Gritti Palace are provided with anti-slip coating and Kaldewei’s proprietary easy-care finish.
