Hilton Molino Stucky
Venice Italy 30133
The relatively new Hilton Molino Stucky, located on Giudecca Island, is a beautifully restored hotel that's housed in a former flour mill. Offering tons of ambience, a rooftop pool and bar, a couple of excellent restaurants, comfy rooms with all the latest gadgets, and views over Venice that are so compelling it'll be hard to leave, it's like staying on a cruise ship -- on land. The added bonus for cruise ship lovers is that it's right on the waterway that ships take to come in to port -- and go back out again.
