Hotel Danieli, Venice
If Venice is for lovers, then the Hotel Danieli is arguably the most sumptuous sanctuary for lovers to call home. Stories abound of famous pairs who’ve stayed here, from Alfred de Musset and George Sand to Aristotle Onassis and Maria Callas. You might even hear faint echoes of onetime guest Diana Ross humming her hit “Baby Love.” Housed in the 14th-century Palazzo Dandolo, once a doge’s family residence, the lavish interiors are mesmerizing, with unbeatable views of Venice. The Danieli, part of The Luxury Collection, is just moments from St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs—a jewel that shines bright among Venetian masterpieces.
