Named for the Venetian island where some of the world's best glass is created, this big hotel with an intimate ambience centers around exhibits by world-famous glass artists and offers rooms done in black and white with fiery accents. Bold colors and sleek metals infuse public spaces with style and energy, and each floor exhibits a different glass artist's pieces. Standard amenities are high-thread-count linens, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs. The stark, chrome-and-glass
Bite Restaurant sits spectacularly above glass creations in the hotel atrium and serves refinsed contemporary Pacific Northwest fare.
