Venice Marco Polo Airport is 16 kilometers away.
A buffet breakfast is available each morning at the Gabrielli Sandwirth, and the hotel restaurant serves a range of Italian and international dishes, served either in the candle-lit atmosphere of the palazzo courtyard with it's views of Venice and the St Mark's Canal, or in the chandeliered, indoor dining room.
Guests can relax on the terrace solarium looking out over St Mark's canal, sip cocktails in the bar, with its polychrome marble walls and floors, or take a stroll in the flower garden between the Lebanese cedar trees and rosebushes. The hotel can cater for conferences and banquets, and further amenities include free WiFi, a 24-hour front desk, air-conditioned public areas, and a library.
