San Marco, Venice
The Westin Europa & Regina
Classic elegance that’s not too fussy
What it is
A safe option for those who want something classic, well-located and family-friendly.
What it isn't
What we think
Spread across five historic palazzi on the Grand Canal, The Westin Europa & Regina is a noteworthy property in a central location. The 185 rooms and suites have simple, classic styling that is tasteful, but not over-the-top (so if you’re hoping for a hotel that’s head-to-toe grandeur, this isn’t the place for you). That being said, the rooms are stylish and relaxed, so you won’t ever feel like you need to tread carefully for fear of breaking a priceless antique. The rest of the hotel, on the other hand, is marble, gold and velvet everything, and perfectly exemplifies 18th-century Venetian style. For some, the larger size of the hotel can be a drawback, but with size comes additional services and facilities, including cooking classes and a New Balance lending program (so you won’t have to worry about stuffing your suitcase with exercise gear). Extra children’s amenities, like customizable activities and a kids' club, make this one of the best choices for those traveling with young children. Outside the hotel’s doors is the art and theatre district where the Piazza San Marco and plenty of boutiques and eateries await when you’re ready to explore.
You're here because
You want a luxurious hotel, but don’t want the stuffiness that sometimes follows. Also, you want a spot that’ll be welcoming to your kids.
