Hotel History

From its beginnings our palazzo has been home to a rich collection of artworks, a tradition that originated with the noble Pisani family, and that continued with its successive owners including the Gritti’s.

A Refined Renovation

Chosen by the world’s social elite as the place to celebrate important events, we now continue this tradition. From the panoramic Terrazza Redentore suite and the Bar Longhi terrace to The Gritti Epicurean School, there's a unique place to celebrate every moment. Art in its many forms was an important part of the restoration, from the precious Rubelli Group fabrics that decorate guestrooms and suites, to the exceptional glass chandeliers meticulously hand restored according to tradition by able glassmakers from nearby Murano.

An Intriguing History

The Gritti Palace dates back to 1475 when the Pisani family, who lived here, transformed it into its current Gothic shape. In 1525 the building became the private residence of the Doge of Venice, Andrea Gritti, and in the centuries that followed, it was home to other noble families and illustrious visitors. It was at the beginning of the XIX century that The Gritti Palace was turned into a hotel and after a meticulous renovation it now offers guests an insight into its intriguing and illustrious past. Admire the refined renovation from the beautiful terrazzo floors to the remarkable selection of artworks and antiques that adorn all private and social spaces within the hotel.

Illustrious Guests

Over the years, The Gritti Palace has welcomed many famous guests. It was home to successive noble families, such as the Pisanis and again the Grittis in 1814. Some years later it was sold to the Baroness Susanna d'Eyb, widow to the Baron Vetzlar. It was during this period that John Ruskin and his young wife Effie spent a long period at Palazzo Gritti where he wrote his famous book 'The Stones of Venice'.
