Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has announced that it will open a new hotel in the Italian city of Venice in 2025.
Four Seasons will undertake the management of the historic Hotel Danieli, formerly a Luxury Collection property in the Marriott portfolio. Four Seasons, following extensive renovations, will reintroduce the property as Hotel Danieli, Venezia, A Four Seasons Hotel in 2025.
Located in the Riva degli Schiavoni region of
Venice along the Grand Canal, adjacent to Piazza San Marco, the hotel consists of three buildings: the 14th century Palazzo Dandolo and two 19th century additions linked by bridges Palazzo Casa Nova and Palazzo Danieli Excelsior. Hotel Daniel’s rich heritage is on display throughout the property, showcased in the beautifully preserved Venetian Gothic style architecture, along with art and antiques from throughout the property’s history.
Hotel Danieli has a long history of being one of
the most luxurious hotels in Venice with an ideal
location in the heart of the city. Guests will be a
short walk from myriad attractions, including the
market stalls of Piazza San Marco, gondola rides along the canal and Basilica San Marco.
Guests will enjoy a unique arrival experience (although pretty common in Venice) on boat via
the Grand Canal. Guest rooms feature exceptional views of the Grand Canal, surrounding city and Venice’s Bay. The property also features 4 restaurant and bar outlets, which also benefit from exquisite views, as well as 7 meeting and event spaces.

Venice is a significant travel market globally,
celebrated for its art, culture and architecture.
The city is also known for its unique geography,
as it is built on an archipelago of hundreds of
islands, some of which are a UNESCO World
Heritage Site, connected by bridges and canals.
Travellers explore the city via water or on foot,
allowing them to take in the extraordinary sights
and attractions at every turn.
Giuseppe Statuto, owner of Gruppo Statuto, said:
Hotel Danieli is a renowned and historic property in Venice, and we are confident that our partnership with Four Seasons will help usher the Hotel into its next chapter, maintaining the standard of quality and excellence that guests have come to expect of the Hotel. Together with Four Seasons, our properties in Milan and Taormina have seen great success, and Hotel Danieli will perfectly complement these world-class experiences that are unmatched in Italy.
Upon reopening as a Four Seasons experience
in 2025, Hotel Danieli, Venezia, A Four
Seasons Hotel, will join Four Seasons growing
collection of properties in Italy, including Four
Seasons Hotel Milano, which recently
underwent extensive renovations of its common
areas; Four Seasons Hotel Firenze; San
