Constructed as a 16th-century casino that was designed for Venetian aristocracy, the Albergo Quattro Fontane stands 50 meters from the beach in Venice, Italy. The convention center is located 100 meters from the hotel, and the Palazzo Mostra del Cinema, site of the Venice International Film Festival, is positioned 200 meters away.
The lobby of the Albergo Quattro Fontane displays African masks, Indonesian puppets and rare French ceramic-figure collections.

The Quattro Fontane Restaurant & Bar is located in a restored 1575 summer house that features original wood-beam ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace and four marble columns, two of which were designed by famed architect Palladio.
