InterContinental Hotels Group has signed its first InterContinental hotel in Venice - InterContinental Venice – Palazzo Nani.
The hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with Cordifin Group and H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts Management and open at the beginning of 2018.
The building, converted from a stunning 16th century palace into an intimate 51-room InterContinental hotel, will feature a wellness centre, modern meeting facilities and Club InterContinental Lounge.
Visited by more than 60,000 visitors a day, the city of Venice dates back to the 5th century and is famed for its matrix of canals connected by beautiful adorning bridges.
Robert Shepherd, chief development officer, Europe, IHG said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Cordifin to bring the first InterContinental hotel to Venice.
“It’s great to see momentum behind the brand continuing as we get set to celebrate its 70th anniversary this year. InterContinental Venice – Palazzo Nani will be a great addition to the InterContinental family, offering guests an unforgettable experience in a city loved by millions around the world.”
InterContinental Venice – Palazzo Nani will lie on the Cannaregio Canal which connects to the Grand Canal at the epicentre of Venice’s vibrant island.
Guests will be able to wander Venice’s narrow windy streets to observe the city’s gothic architecture and renaissance art as well as visit its historical landmarks, including St. Mark’s Square and its Basilica, Piazza San Marco, the Doge’s Palace and the Rialto Bridge.
