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
From check in, to suite amenities, our stay was amazing. We ventured out a little bit but the majority of our stay was spent at this hotel. The pool staff were pleasantly accommodating, the gaming was fun, and the restaurants were delightful. We really don't even want to think of another choice when we come back, our experience was that good.
We stayed there before 2017. It has beautiful rooms, or should I say suites. Three areas, sitting area, bed area, and bath area. Since we had stayed there, it has been remodeled. Love it when we stayed there.
Stayed at Palazzo the last weekend in June but would never again.
Pros: rooms are nice and housekeeping is excellent
Cons: checkin & checkout is inefficient, staffed poorly & staff is not truthful ; concierge is at best uninformed & at worse untruthful ; no place to sit while waiting to check in/out other than “on the floor” ; elevators broken so have to switch to go from room to casino making it cumbersome w/ long waiting lines ; extremely inconvenient to get from rooms to eateries ; no kettle to warm water for late night tea ; location is end of the strip resulting in very long walks to get anywhere.
Definitely not worth the money
Beautiful hotel and lovely spacious suites.
Pool area on 4th floor very busy & noisy at peak times. Much more pleasant at the end of the day when quieter.
Garden pool on 10 th floor is like a little piece of paradise with lovely jacuzzi pools.
Towels are plentiful. Very well kept always clean & tidy.
Great position to walk at night to view Volcano light show & The Bellagio fountains.
Only downside of this hotel are the skin care shops in the hotel who grab you as you pass to try and convince you that their eye cream makes you look 20 years younger! The wrinkles do go for about an hour but it doesn’t last like they say and gets very annoying as they try to grab you every time you have to pass!
The Hotel is 15 min away from the airport. There is a separate queue for IHG members for check in and which is faster than the regular one. All rooms are suites. The wash rooms are quit big in size which give grand feel.
They have 4 - 5 swimming pools, lots of eatries, restaurants in the premises. Gondola ride is must for first time visitors. Breakfast spread is good but still needs to improve the buffet spread.
Fremont street is 20 min away from the hotel. The designated pick up point for tours is quite away but at walkable distance.
