Each of these rooms on the spacious Piazza Unità d'Italia is beautifully furnished in Venetian-Renaissance style, with dark-wood antiques, rich carpets, and plush fabrics. In the basement, below sea level, is one of northern Italy's most impressive indoor pool-spa complexes: it's reminiscent of ancient Roman baths. On the ground floor is Harry's Grill. Suffice it to say this place has come a long way since its original incarnation as a 19th-century dockers' café.
