Named after its Italian predecessor, Venice, FL, has beautiful beaches, a quaint downtown overflowing with shops and restaurants, and stunning local scenery to explore along the Myakka River. Whether you're visiting for business or for leisure, you're in for a treat in this gorgeous getaway.
Venice Avenue captures the heart of this fun and stylish city. Head out of your Venice hotel and take a stroll along its palm-fringed lengths to see faded pink Italian Renaissance buildings and shop in Mediterranean inspired stores. Then head down for an afternoon's fishing or people watching on Venice Pier.
Venice is known by many as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of The World'. Visit during April for a fun-filled festival that celebrates these fossilised finds, or get hold of a shark tooth hunting kit and join hundreds of other explorers on the city's famously black beaches.
When you’re craving quieter climes, a quick bike ride or hike along the Intracoastal Waterway will take you from downtown Venice to Caspersen Beach -- a more remote and unspoilt section of shoreline. Alternatively, head out along the river and explore the Myakka State Park, one of Florida's oldest and largest state parks. From hiking to biking, fishing, and wildlife spotting, choose from a varied menu of activities in these 57 square miles of wetland, prairie and woodland.

The hotel's pet policy is excellent. Their policy stated on website and by central reservations is out of date. I would suggest calling. Staff was excellent and breakfast good. Room was tired and[More]

Stayed here a couple of nights in April 2015. It's a solid choice, more of a boutique hotel than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. Parking was ample and it was close to where I needed to be.[More]
