Owned by the Sagredo family since the 18th century, this building is much more than a hotel. Full of original stuccos, sculptures and spectacular architectonic elements, it's a veritable museum. The monumental staircase, for example, which was designed by architect Andrea Tirali and completed in 1732, is still bordered by the Pietro Longhi frescoes from the time of its construction. Rooms and suites are in the ornate Venetian style, albeit complemented by contemporary touches and panoramic views onto the Grand Canal. Just around the bend from the Rialto Bridge and next to the Ca’ D’Oro museum (and eponymous jetty), this is a luxe lodging on one of the city’s historic veins; a fully immersive Venetian residence.
