The ever-expanding empire of Bauer hotels is presided over by Francesca Bortolotto Possati, whose family has owned the two original properties—the Bauer and Il Palazzo—since 1930. L'Hotel doesn't look like much on the outside, but the blocky 1949 building's 91 rooms and 18 suites are all plush and pleasant, with lots of velvet furniture and brocade upholstery. The location in Campo San Moisè, among some of Venice's smartest shops and just a stone's throw from Piazza San Marco, is hard to beat. For more pampering, check into Il Palazzo, a former annex that's now a 44-room, 38-suite boutique lodging. Here, the luxury is super-discreet: Those wishing to stay incognito can slip in and out via private launch at the water entrance. For Bauer's two Giudecca properties, see Bauers Palladio & Villa F.—Lee Marshall

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
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."
