A study in Venetian opulence, this expansive palace has been the Sagredo family residence since the mid-1600s and has the decor to prove it: the massive staircase has Longhi frescoes soaring above it and the large common areas are adorned with original art by Tiepolo, Longhi, and Ricci, among others. Guest rooms are traditional Venetian style, some retaining original art and architectural elements, many with full or partial canal and rooftop views; flooring might be Venetian
terrazzo, wood parquet, or plush carpeting. One suite even offers a private rooftop balcony. Although the hotel website advertises antique furniture, most of the pieces are modern copies—but there's no doubt about the Venetian 18th-century frescoes!
