Expert Review

Designer Philippe Starck's latest creative endeavor in Venice is a 26-room luxury hotel, Palazzina Grassi. The property is tucked away on a quiet bend of the Grand Canal in San Marco, far enough away from tourist hot spots and heavily trafficked areas. To stay here is to fully submerge into Philippe Starck's outrageous, at times overbearing, design aesthetic. There are nearly 300-etched mirrors throughout the Palazzina Grassi, specifically in the all-white guest suites, some with balconies. The hotel's restaurant, PG's, is decadently appointed with leather couches, colorful Murano glass chandeliers and vases, glass and mirrored tables and a large collection of antique books. PG's serves excellent Venetian-inspired fare, and drinks from the bar are strong and generous.
