The St Regis Venice is opening soon.

When I was in Venice last August I noticed that Marriot’s Westin Europa & Regina was closed for refurbishment.

It appears that the hotel is about to reopen under the luxury St Regis brand.  This will make another excellent Marriott option in Venice to add to the JW Marriott (on an island outside Venice, JW Marriott Venice review here), the Gritti Palace and the Danieli.

Booking is not yet available.  The website says March 2019 but that is not probably happening if you can’t book yet!

You may remember that St Regis used to have a hotel in the lagoon, next to the JW Marriott, but it closed after a year and was rebranded as a Kempinski.

The hotel website, not that there is much on it yet, is here.

    Avios points are even less value here:
    Because there is limited avios availability I recently had to book the outward and inward flights separately. But it is in effect a return ticket. The charges paid are higher than they would be if it had been possible to book a return ticket.
    BA says they will not refund the excess charges.
