I have not seen the film but, I believe it is not actually a Hotel but a Palazzo on the Grand Canal,

They used Palazzo Pisani Moretta as Hotel Danieli.

The Palazzo Pisani-Moretta was originally built in the 15th century but has been altered many times since then. It lies on the junction of the Grand Canal with the Rio San Polo which is opposite the S. Angelo landing stage.

@Rosa: I grabbed the info from a local newspaper some time ago, so they didn't use Palazzo Pisani Moretta for the Danieli shots?

They certainly used it for the exteriors and some interior filming happened there, but I don't know if they used other places for the interiors too.

More exciting, the local newspeper ran an article last week that Johnny Depp is buting a place in Venice, on the Grand canal near the Ca' Pesaro.

There was a brief shot of the famous Danieli staircase in the film and I thought the shot of the front desk, when Depp phones down for help, was also in the Danieli, but I could be wrong. They moved the location of the "Danieli" around Venice in an alarming fashion - at one stage Depp jumps out of the window and supposedly finds himself on the rooftops by the Rialto market - nowhere near the real Danieli nor the Palazzo Pisani Moretta.

FYI In a episode of Samantha Brown's Europe she visits the Danieli and they showed a suite that looked like an exact mirror of the suite in The Tourist.
