Venice's Hotel Excelsior to Re-Open Following Restoration

N-US">Hotel Excelsior in Venice is to reopen next month following major renovation work.

The 197-room property will welcome guests on April 12 after closing in October last year.

The hotel’s Venetian-Byzantine façade and its iconic cupola, or dome, has been restored following a fire in 2014, while all rooms will be restyled over the next two years.

Beachfront restaurant La Taverna has also undergone a redesign and will have a new menu serving up traditional Italian cuisine.

London & Regional Properties Group took over the running of the hotel in 2016 and launched a three-year renovation plan which is due to be completed by 2020.

The next phases of the plan include upgrading the communal areas and rolling out a new food and beverage strategy.

A new management team was appointed last summer which includes general manager Alessio Lazazzera, who previously managed hotels in the St. Regis and Luxury Collection brand, with 12 years spent overseeing the re-launch of the Hotel Quisisana in Capri.

Daniele Trombacco was appointed director of sales and marketing in February this year having held positions at Hilton and Waldorf Astoria Resort in Rome.

Room rates start at £323 per night including breakfast.
