Romantic waterfront hotel near Piazza San Marco This five-story hotel has 53 air-conditioned guestrooms. The high-ceilinged rooms are appointed with silk-covered walls, 19th-century Biedermeier furniture, and gilt-framed original oil paintings. Each room has a 21-inch satellite TV with Internet access (surcharge). Bathrooms of yellow-and-orange marble have bathrobes, slippers, telephones, makeup mirrors, bidets, gold faucets, and heated towel racks. About two-thirds of the rooms have lagoon views, and some rooms have balconies or terraces. Complimentary newspapers are available on request. 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.

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.

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. The white-marble Hotel Londra Palace has 100 windows overlooking the Venetian Lagoon. The restaurant, a destination for guests and other visitors to Venice, overlooks the lagoon. A light-filled lounge area just off the lobby has a 19th-century Biedermeier desk, four antique chairs, and sofas upholstered in red velvet and green silk. The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast buffet daily. In summer, breakfast, dinner, and cocktails are served on the large terrace in front of the hotel, facing the water. The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast buffet each morning.

Rental cars and buses travel from the airport to the Piazzale Roma. From there, guests can take a vaporetto (water bus) across the lagoon to the Zattere stop. Public shuttle boats travel from the airport to the Piazza San Marco, a two-minute walk from the hotel.

The vaporetto system connects the major islands of the lagoon (Murano, Burano, the Lido, and Torcello) with the historic center of Venice. Vaporetti 1 and 82 travel the Grand Canal from Piazzale Roma to St. Mark's Square. Beyond water travel, walking is an easy way to explore Venice.
