Well, we’ve been silent for a few weeks however during this time we’ve been working hard to ensure The Gritti Palace is ready to open its doors and welcome back both residents and guests when we reopen on 1st February, 2013.
During the 2nd week of January the temporary construction site offices were finally removed, freeing up access to the hotel’s street entrance off Santa Maria del Giglio Square. We are pleased to share with you a video of this important milestone.
Our associates have now returned to prepare their workstations. Exquisite details continue to be curated in the guestrooms, unique suites, and spaces for socialising and leisure. Just like a private home, favourite pieces have been returned to their places and room has been made for a trove of new treasures.
In the Gritti Palace kitchens, Executive Chef Daniele Turco and his brigade have been testing traditional Venetian culinary proposals and signature risottos that will feature at Club del Doge Restaurant, and perfecting the lightness of the soufflés that will be late night specialties to indulge in at Bar Longhi.
As we countdown these final days to our reopening, the atmosphere fills with enthusiasm and pride for all of those who have dedicated themselves over the past 15 months to our handcrafted restoration, and to preparing The Gritti Palace for its reopening. To add to the excitement of the reopening, the Venice Carnival, an event loved by travellers and explorers of fantasy and mystery around the world, is now underway.
We look forward to having you visit us soon and as you do, hope you will consider The Gritti Palace your home in Venice. To make a reservation, call +39 041 2961222, visit thegrittipalace.com, or contact your preferred travel agency.
