Fodor’s says of Hotel Murano, “Aptly named after the famous island home to Venice's glassmaking industry, this hotel features exhibits of world-famous glass artists. Dark halls with dramatic lighting set a stage for the colorful art to pop, balanced perfectly with streamlined furniture, white marble, and warm wood tables in other common spaces. The comfortable, unstuffy atmosphere is carried over to the guest rooms.”
“From hidden-away restaurants to can't-miss museums, Fodor’s Choice selections recognize the top sights, properties, and experiences our editors and updaters have found in their travels,” says Fodor’s publisher Tim Jarrell. “These places are the best of the best, providing a remarkable experience in their price range or category.”
