A celebrity's love affair with a specific hotel tends to come and go faster than gossip on TMZ. But ever since Hotel Cipriani opened its doors in 1958, it has attracted a high-wattage clientele. Old-school names like Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston mingle in the hotel's "Golden Book" with hot properties like Daniel Craig and Brangelina. Accessible only by boat, this waterfront property is perfectly set for those seeking seclusion. Everything about it is discreet, from the personal butlers to the private gardens. The glass-enclosed Palladio Suite with two marble bathrooms and a private dock is a favorite with the rich and famous, but there's no need to turn to stalking. Simply book a table at the lagoon-side Fortuny Restaurant, and you're sure to spot a star before the night is through.
