Gold List 2011

Bauers Il Palazzo, L'Hotel 

On the Grand Canal and steps from the Piazza San Marco, the palace scores perfectly for location. Rooms are done in red with gold upholstery, but beware of ones with "the lousy view into an alley." De Pisis's atmosphere "can't be beat," but the food is "average and a little expensive." B-Bar is a "local hot spot with live music and wall-to-wall people every night." Staff are "attentive and helpful."
