Located right on the Grand Canal, the Westin Hotel Europa & Regina was included on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2008 Gold List and 2009 Gold List Reserve. It offers a picturesque and relaxing escape in a peaceful corner of Venice just steps away from all the historic city has to offer – the monuments of Piazza San Marco, the exciting shopping of Rialto Market, and the simply incomparable beauty of Venice. With breathtaking views across the canal to the beautiful Baroque church of Santa Maria della Salute, this classic hotel provides a waterside oasis that will make you feel far away from the bustling narrow streets just outside.
Maintaining traditional beauty while offering contemporary conveniences, each of the hotel’s five magnificently restored buildings dates from the 17th to 19th centuries. The historic accommodations, appointed in traditional Venetian style, offer romantic city or Grand Canal views and all the amenities of a five-star property. The hotel also features a complete fitness center and a wonderful waterside restaurant, La Cusina. Bar Tiepolo’s Grand Canal Terrace is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring.
