The décor in Hotel Cipriani's 79 rooms and suites is classic, soft, and above all else, Venetian. The manager who showed me around described two of the colors in the palette as “Titian red” and “Veronese green.”

Typically, hues are pastel—peach, lavender, blue — which pop when the rooms fill with summer sunlight and contrast beautifully with the view of either the gardens or the lagoon.

Antique furniture, and fabrics by Fortuny and Rubelli, are illuminated by glasswork from nearby Murano and other creations by local artisans, many of which are for sale in the hotel’s arcade.

Almost all guest rooms have a private balcony or terrace, including many of the standard doubles. Most have been renovated recently; it’s worth requesting that yours be one of these, although the circa-1950 rooms are, by Venetian standards, young.

The hotel was built in the 1950s as a summer getaway for the well-heeled; it continues to be closed in the winter.

The spacious bathroom in my junior suite was appointed with an oversize tub, a separate shower with multiple heads, a walk-in toilet and bidet, and a heated towel rack. Wi-fi is available and modern standards, such as minibars and televisions, are tastefully hidden inside pieces of antique furniture.
