Italian romance meets Vegas glitz at the Strip’s prized Venetian. The marble, all-suite pampering palace buzzes with high rollers, L.A. socialites and suburban escapees, all seeking fabulous accommodations surrounded by endless action. With over 4,000 suites, 19 restaurants, 80 shops, a 120,000-square-foot mega-casino—and, of course, its own canals for gondola rides—this re-creation of the famed Italian city somehow unites the opposing forces of quantity and quality. These suites are luxurious but not over-the-top, and the Italian theme is fun and whimsical but not to the point of cheesiness. They start at 650 square feet, which allows for plush furnishings in sunken living rooms and marble baths with a tub and separate glass-encased shower. The best touch, however, is the LCD TV in the bathroom so you can catch up on your soaps while you’re soaping up before a night on the Strip. But why leave? The hotel supplies the full Vegas experience: 19 restaurants, one of the Strip’s largest and most elegant casinos, a Canyon Ranch spa, swimming pools, the 21-plus TAO Beach beach club for the party set (open seasonally) and great entertainment options like Rock of Ages and Human Nature. And there are also more than enough ways to max your credit card with 160 luxury stores and boutiques, from Diane von Furstenberg to Chloe, Christian Louboutin to Tory Burch.
In the Area
The hardest choice you’ll make while here may be where to eat dinner. Sample the creations of James Beard Award-winning chefs like Thomas Keller, Emeril Lagasse and Tom Moloney at any of the resort’s fine-dining headliners. Commune with the ghosts of Vegas past with a visit to the Neon Boneyard, a collection of Sin City’s old glowing signs. Away from the glitz, you can take a heart-pounding zipline ride over Nevada’s stunning Bootlet Canyon with Flightlinez.
How to Get There
Stayed at this resort and was very pleased. Really clean, great food and the staff went above and beyond being helpful. They made you feel like you were extremely important. Felt like a VIP. Shopping was really great since all the stores were within walking distance.
The Venetian is beautiful and classy. I had a King Suite which was very nice, great sized bathroom and separate seating area. Everything in that hotel is spotless, good security, and helpful staff. We noticed a strange noise coming from our shower drain one morning. We called the front desk and maintenance came up immediately to check it out. He said that it was likely just air in the pipes and that he would have to run a snake through to clear it out. He was very professional and helpful. He suggested that we finish getting ready and that he would come back at an acceptable time and have housekeeping come through when he was done. Sure enough, when we came back from our day out, everything was spotless and we did not have any other issues.
The *only* negative would be that there are no prices for the refreshments in the room -which I'm sure is the case at any other resort - However, I was under the impression that the water bottles with the Venetian label on them would be complimentary.... nope. Got charged $5 each on my checkout bill. Lesson learned there.
Everything is conveniently located right on the property. We had easy access to do as much or as little as our group liked. Enjoying delicious 5⭐️star restaurants, shopping, gambling, Gorgeous spacious rooms.
