Grand restored pink palazzo
The lobby of Ca’Sagredo is full of historic details, from the wood-beamed ceiling to the grand staircase leading upstairs. The high-ceilinged hallways are more like salons, full of artwork (some dating to the 17th and 18th centuries) and sunlight from the tall windows. This refined hotel can feel like a museum, and guests can be found wandering throughout to admire sculpture, frescoes, and Grand Canal views. This palazzo is a national monument, has been carefully restored, and is well-maintained.
On the Grand Canal, near a Vaporetto stop
Ca’Sagredo has a convenient central location in Venice. It is located on the Grand Canal on the Cannaregio side; the Rialto Market is located directly across the canal. A traghetto, or big gondola, crosses the canal to easily reach the Rialto Market. The hotel is in a vibrant neighborhood with many choices for restaurants and bars and is steps from the Ca d’Oro Vaporetto stop. St. Mark's Square is a 12-minute walk.
Elegant and luxurious with marble bathrooms
This converted palazzo has huge rooms with plush seating areas and work desks, some with Grand Canal views. Dramatic drapes frame tall windows and beds have elegant tufted headboards. Hardwood floors, gilded mirrors, and thoughtfully stocked minibars are all nice touches. Marble bathrooms are big and have rainforest showerheads. Suites have even higher ceilings with intricate carvings.
A terrace along the canal and an elegant restaurant
The ground-floor restaurant and bar are both elegant and intimate. The restaurant serves upscale Venetian cuisine; sample menu items include seafood risotto and homemade purple potato gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese. An outdoor terrace has views up and down the Grand Canal. The free breakfast is served in an upstairs salon with original art.
The 42 luxurious rooms of Ca’Sagredo were designed in aristocratic Venetian style. This restored pink palazzo on the Grand Canal has maintained its original grandeur, including salons filled with frescoes and sweeping staircases. Huge rooms have plush furnishings and marble bathrooms; the terrace along the canal is a scenic place for a drink. This is one of the most decadent hotel experiences in Venice, and it's right on the Grand Canal, within walking distance of St. Mark's Square.
