OVERVIEW

Insider Tip

In 1877, Tchaikovsky wrote the first three movements of his Fourth Symphony in the hotel's Room 106. He nicknamed his work Do Leoni, the lions symbolizing London and Venice. Immediately outside the hotel is an equestrian statue of Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of a unified Italy, supported by stone lions.

Hotel Overview

Overlooking the Venetian lagoon, this white-marble hotel is a quarter-mile from the Piazza San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale.
All 53 spacious guestrooms feature lofty ceilings, city or lagoon views, silk-covered walls, brocaded fabrics, and gilt-framed original oils.
The hotel is home to the acclaimed Ristorante Do Leoni, offering Venetian cuisine, seasonal alfresco dining, and views of gondolas.

Amenity highlights:

The hotel's Ristorante Do Leoni serves sophisticated Venetian cuisine in a handsome room with a stone-mosaic floor and a wall of windows overlooking the lagoon. The outdoor waterfront terrace is popular in summer, and the expertly mixed house cocktails are well worth sampling.

What to expect:

Occupying three snow-white 19th-century buildings, this romantic hotel overlooks the Venetian Lagoon. Palladio's 16th-century San Giorgio Maggiore Church stands directly opposite. Rocco Magnoli, architect of Versace's boutiques, oversaw the hotel's extensive 1999 renovation. The stylish lobby is appointed with ornamental columns and a mix of traditional and contemporary Venetian glass. The Londra Palace is popular with European and American couples celebrating special occasions.
