The Hotel Venice was built during the late 1920s development of the City of Venice by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, a labor union headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. It was the first building constructed by the Brotherhood in Venice and one of the largest. It was the center piece of their planned community, and took only 8 months to build.

The Hotel Venice was designed in Northern Italian Renaissance Style by New York architect Leon N. Gillette, a well known architect of the first half of the twentieth century. Locally fabricated materials were used in its construction. Notable guests included Thomas A. Edison, John Ringling, and baseball star Ty Cobb.

In 1932, the Kentucky Military Institute of Lyndon, Kentucky rented the building as a winter school for their cadets and faculty. The school purchased the building in 1939 and used it for winter classes until 1970. In 1981 the building was purchased by far South Developers Inc. The exterior of the building was restored and the interior renovated for use as a retirement residence known as Casa de Venice. In 1988, The Adult Care Management Corporation acquired the building and renamed it Park Place.

The Hotel Venice was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and was the first building in the City of Venice to be listed.
