Luxury Collection hotels in Paris and Venice getting major upgrades

By Danny King
Prince de GallesStarwood Luxury Collection hotels in Paris and Venice are part of a $200 million renovation project.

The Gritti Palace in Venice will reopen in late January after a 15-month renovation. In addition to 61 rooms and 21 suites, the property will include the Gritti Epicurean School.

The Gritti Palace was originally built in 1475 as a private residence.

The Hotel Prince de Galles, which was built in 1928, will have its 203 rooms and suites upgraded. In addition, the hotel's mosaic courtyard will be renovated when it reopens by next June.

Renovations will total $200 million when combined with those at two Spain hotels. The 151-room Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville, which was first built in 1929, reopened last March, while the 136-key Hotel Maria Cristina in San Sebastian reopened in July.
