A plush Venice hotel on the edge of the Grand Canal, offering amazing views – includes breakfast, a dining discount or two-course dinner, Venice Casino access and optional Carnival Party tickets, plus festive dates

As its name suggests, Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal sits water-side in the uniquely captivating city of Venice. With a Vaporetto (water taxi) stop and the Santa Lucia train station within striking distance, it would be a challenge to find a better base for navigating the city's labyrinthine narrow streets and ebbing waterways.

Stepping inside, you'll find strikingly elegant and refined interiors clad in intricate Venetian plasterwork, with Murano glass wall lamps and gilt-edged furniture adding the finishing touches. Sumptuous 1700s Venetian style continues on throughout the rooms, which feature walls dressed in silk damask; Murano glass chandeliers provide exquisite ceiling centrepieces.

Top of the Carlton Sky Lounge is a place to see and be seen, offering a mouth-watering menu of cocktails to wash down delectable Venetian and Mediterranean menus. The domed, arched and spired city skyline provides the perfect backdrop.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €4.50 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel.

Please note that The Top Of The Carlton Sky Lounge opens seasonally, usually from May to September, and depending on the weather.
