Hotel Description

It’s not just the small, independent boutique hotels that are full of local character these days. Increasingly, the best big hotel chains are getting in on the action too — opening hotels where the furniture is crafted by local artisans, the ingredients for breakfast sourced from the local farmers market and all the rest. The Accor hotel group’s MGallery collection of boutique hotels does this particularly well. They’re quick to point out that the “M” stands for “memorable,” and in the case of MGallery LaGare Hotel Venezia, the adjective is certainly apt.

The grand Gare Hotel, as it used to be called, was the first hotel to open on the island of Murano, famous for its centuries-old glass-making tradition. But that’s not even the most interesting historic fact about the place. The hotel was built within the old walls of a former kiln — and before that, going all the way back to the fourteenth century, the building was a church. Everywhere you look in the public spaces, the building’s unique backstory shines through. The storied palazzo is filled with the island’s signature glass ornamentation, not least in the opulent chandeliers overhead. Where things get more modern is in the hundred and eighteen guest rooms, with a subdued color palette, Venini lighting, parquet floors, spacious baths and all the standard amenities.

Still, it’s the hotel’s traditional features that really make it memorable — the elegant bar and restaurant overlooking a lovely Venetian-style courtyard, an arched ceiling calling to mind the building’s original functions, a local artisan teaching guests how to make beaded necklaces during a glass-making class. The old magic of the island still lives here, yet it’s also plenty convenient, especially since the hotel offers a private (and complimentary) shuttle service along the lagoon to Venice’s train station or airport. Another added bonus: you’ll have a great travel story to share at a future dinner party when someone compliments your new Murano napkin rings.
