Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is set to assume management of the historic Hotel Danieli in Venice.
The property will be reintroduced as Hotel Danieli, Venezia, A Four Seasons Hotel in 2025 following extensive renovations overseen by designer Pierre-Yves Rochon.
The luxury hotel group signed an agreement with Italian hotel development company Gruppo Statuto, with the hotel operated and managed by the group throughout the renovation period, with select services and amenities available.
The hotel is located in the Riva degli Schiavoni region of Venice along the Grand Canal, adjacent to Piazza San Marco. It consists of three buildings: the 14th century Palazzo Dandolo and two 19th century additions linked by bridges – Palazzo Casa Nuova and Palazzo Danieli Excelsior.
The hotel features preserved Venetian Gothic style architecture, along with art and antiques from throughout the property’s history. Guests will be able to enjoy an arrival experience on boat via the Grand Canal, while rooms include views of the canal, surrounding city and Venice’s Bay.
The property also includes four restaurant and bar outlets, and seven meeting and event spaces.
Bart Carnahan, President, global business development and portfolio management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, commented:
“Italy is a beloved and important destination for luxury travellers, and we have been capitalizing on the strength of this market with property enhancements and incredible new additions to our portfolio – many of them in collaboration with our long-term partners, Gruppo Statuto.
“With Hotel Danieli, we are adding another iconic property to our Italian portfolio, where we will honour the historic legacy of this Venetian landmark while also introducing the exceptional Four Seasons service experience to one of Italy’s most popular destinations.”
Four Seasons has a growing collection of properties in Italy, including hotels in Milan, Florence and Taormina – an upcoming resort in Puglia is also set to join the group.
The group currently has a portfolio of 122 hotels and resorts, and 48 residential properties in 47 countries around the world, with more than 50 projects under planning or development.
