This article reviews hotels in Venice including Venice Airport, with the best club or executive lounges. By reviewing each of these club lounges, in turn, I conclude which hotel club lounge comes in at the top and which hotel I would select as having the best club lounge in Venice.
If you want club lounge access for free, book a standard room at the InterContinental in New York, Sydney, Paris or London, which partner with our luxury travel concierge and you will get a room upgrade and free club lounge access. This free lounge access has to be one of the best hotel deals in these cities!
Luxury hotels in Venice include Aman Canal Grande Venice, Belmond Hotel Cipriani, Hotel Danieli, JW Marriott Venice, Palazzina, The Gritti Palace and The St. Regis Venice. The only one that features a club lounge is, however, the Hilton. None of the best Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Venice have a club lounge, but you can get extra benefits at these hotels if you make your booking with our luxury travel concierge. Our agents offer exclusive free upgrades, free breakfasts, free hotel credit and VIP gifts at luxury hotels like Four Seasons, Aman, Belmond, Hyatt, Ritz-Carlton, InterContinental, and more for the same price as the hotel’s own websites. You will also get all your usual Marriott Bonvoy points and status benefits if you book with us.
Typically, our free benefits* at luxury hotels if you book via our luxury travel concierge include:
- Room upgrade to next category
- Complimentary breakfast for two per bedroom
- Complimentary Welcome Gift
- $100 USD equivalent Hotel experiential credit per room per stay
- Early check-in / Late check-out, subject to availability
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
Hilton Molino Stucky Venice
Hilton Molino Stucky Venice is an impressive 5-star hotel, walking distance from Zattere and Church of San Sebastiano, on the island across the canal (Guidecca) and close to Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s Basilica.
It’s located in a renovated 19th Century flour mill and is huge by Venice standards, with 379 air-conditioned rooms featuring minibars and LED televisions. Rooms are quite decent, especially if you get upgraded to a canal view room, plus you have wireless Internet access (surcharge) keeps you connected, and digital programming is available for your entertainment. Private bathrooms with showers feature complimentary toiletries and hair dryers. Conveniences include phones, as well as safes and desks.
Beyond your room, you can relax at the full-service spa, where you can enjoy massages and body treatments. You can enjoy the 24-hour health club, an outdoor pool, and a sauna. The pool is very special. Quite small but on the rooftop so the views are fabulous.
Grab a bite to eat at one of the hotel’s 3 restaurants and 4 coffee shops/cafés, or stay in and take advantage of 24-hour room service. Relax with a refreshing drink from a poolside bar or one of the 3 bars/lounges.
The shuttle, which is the hotel boat, takes you across the main canal from the other side, you can walk to St marks Square. The shuttle is packed in the morning and evening but if the queue is too much, you can take a water taxi for a fee or the water bus stop is about 5 minutes’ walk away.
With Diamond status, you get their very decent executive lounge which offers a free breakfast buffet and evening light bites and drinks. If you are a Gold loyalty member, you may or may not get this upgrade. There have been mixed reviews on whether you’ll get the upgrade for free.
The lounge is right on the ground floor, is beautifully decorated, and is next to the restaurant and just off the lobby. To get access to the lounge, you had to either be a Diamond Hilton Honours member or be staying in one of the executive rooms or above.
The lounge is a long, narrow room with a glass wall on one side and lots of wooden beams on the ceiling. It’s fairly classy and there are window tables overlooking Venice on one side so you can enjoy your free breakfast while watching the boats go past.
The lounge is open from 7 am to 9 pm.
- 7 am to 9 pm: Hot/Cold Drinks and Dry Snacks
- 7 am to 10 am: Breakfast which is very limited so eat breakfast at the main hotel restaurant if you have the choice
- 12 pm to 3 pm: Sandwiches
- 3 pm to 5 pm: Dessert
- 5 pm to 7 pm: Canapés/Drinks (Wine & Beer). The Canapes are fairly limited and not enough to fill you up but make a nice snack
This is a really nice Hilton lounge, the atmosphere, staff, and views are great. The food is limited but free, so who’s complaining! Wine and beer are also free so it’s good to pop by in the evening too.
