At a Glance

If you want to be centrally based, this 100-room hotel near Piazza San Marco (the entrance is just across the street from Harry’s Bar) is a good option.


The Benetton Group bought the classic Monaco as well as an adjacent 17th-century palazzo in 1992 and linked the two in a lengthy renovation that was completed in 2003. The Sala del Ridotto, the centerpiece of the project, which now houses several lounge areas, was painstakingly restored, its ceiling frescoes, marble columns and gorgeous mosaic floors and stucco returned to their Baroque grandeur. People like to rent the Ridotto for special events: a wedding reception or birthday celebration in this historic building is wonderfully atmospheric. As the guest rooms in the refurbished palazzo can be on the small side and have mediocre views, it’s best to splurge on one of the elegantly decorated suites facing the Grand Canal.
