Doge Dandolo Royal Suite
The Doge Dandolo Royal Suite was recently restored in Spring 2012 by Pierre Yves Rochon as well as the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice and is dedicated, as it has always been, to Doge Enrico Dandolo, 41st Doge of the Most Serene Venetian Republic. Holding the corner setting on the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Dandolo, its private stand up balconies overlook the Venice Lagoon with 180° views of the Grand Canal and San Giorgio Maggiore Island.
At the same time stately and welcoming, The Doge Dandolo Royal Suite Salon is framed by antique portraits by 19th century Venetian artist Ermolao Paoletti and an extensive bookcase that showcases rare silver pieces from the hotel’s private collection, precious glass by Archimede Seguso, and a Bang&Olufsen BeoVision 10 entertainment system. The central lounge suite features ornate gilded Baroque armchairs in gold damask, contemporary ottomans , a three-seat sofa, and a coffee table in marble from Carrara. The bedroom ceiling is graced with an original 18th Century fresco by Jacopo Guarana which was restored by the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice.
Antique carpets lend warmth to heritage Venetian “terrazzo” floors, floor -to-ceiling gold tinged silk curtains filter the reflections from the lagoon waters outside, while an intimate corner of the salon is dedicated to private dining with a view.
Doge Dandolo Royal Suite is named to Elite Traveler's Top 101 Hotel Suites of 2012
