$200 million dollars have been poured into a project covering the renovation of two more some of Paris' most famous luxury hotels: The Gritti Palace and the Hotel Prince De Galles. The Gritti Palace is expected to reopen in 2013 after major renovations to the nearly six hundred year old palace, with the Prince De Galles will open shortly after. Other hotels included on the bill include the Alfonso XIII and the Maria Cristina, both of which opened this year.
Starwood 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.
