Hotel Danieli - View From Room 284

Venice, Italy

This is the hotel I stayed in in Venice.

From Wikipedia:

"Palazzo Dandolo is a palace in Venice. Now it is home to the Hotel Royal Danieli.

It was built in 1400, by one of the Dandolo families, but whether by that of the great Doge, Enrico Dandolo, is not quite certain. In the Annali of Domenico Malipiero which date from 1457 to 1500 is written that: “Today, the 28 August 1498, have arrived the Ambassadors of Florence, Rucellai and Vespucci; who are lodged in the Palazzo Dandolo, in the Calle delle Razze.”

The Diary of Sanudo reports that: “on the 7 April 1498 the Prince of Salerno came to Venice. A most brilliant reception was given him, great festas were held in his honour, and he, and his suite of forty-four persons were lodged in the Dandolo Palace of the Calle delle Razze.”

The palace passed from the Dandolos to the Gritti family, in 1536, by a deed of sale. After the Dandolos and the Grittis, the Michiel, the Mocenigo and the Bernardo families became its possessors by marriage, and they retained it till 1805, when its second floor was sold, by the noble Dame Helen Michiel, widow of Alvise Bernardo to Dal Niel. Dal Niel left it to his daughter Alfonsina Muzzarelli, who was able, in 1840 to buy the first floor from the noble Filippo Nani, the heir of the Mocenigos; and thus the whole building passed to her daughter Giuseppina Roux, and forms the present Hotel Royal Danieli."
