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
One of the best places to stay on the strip. Stayed in the Bella suite and couldn't be happier with the room and facilities. Valet service was excellent. Celebrated my son's 21st birthday and the hotel sent balloons and cupcakes quickly as ordered. Only downfall was that my family wouldn't let me ride the Gondola, they thought it would be boring. Next time!!!
I stayed at the Venetian Jan 2019. Upon check-in I was offered a room upgrade which I DECLINED. I did an express check out so received my bill via email few days later However, upon reviewing my bill there was a daily charge of $51.02 for room upgrade. When I queried this I was told that I signed for it. I guess I made the mistake of not reading my contract as I am sure many people do. I did not expect that I would be #SCAMMED by adding a garbage upgrade that I did declined. Further the #%%$ room was over looking a construction site. Some upgrade!! Billing/customer Service was very unhelpful and lectured me on the fact that I need to read my contract.
This was our 8th trip to Las Vegas and we had mentioned to the receptionist at the lobby during check in, we were there on our one year civil wedding anniversary that took place there but I guess hotels aren’t in touch with reality anymore on welcoming their guests with some type of comp for guests whom stay with them due to special occasions.
Pros: The Luxury 1 King suite size was wonderful in square footage. Bathroom had a tub, & a shower as well. Walk by the king size bed, step down two steps in to a living room area furnished with a couch along with a table and chairs. Two flat screen TVs, one right in front of the bed, and the other in the living area. Nice fountain in the lobby area, and the painted ceilings are magnificent. Gives a sense that you’re somewhere in a Rome or Paris museum vibe. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Cons: room looks a lil outdated, & needs some upgrading, If barefooted you’ll notice the marble floors in the bathroom can be really cold. The walk to the suite is terrible! We kept getting lost and can be extremely confusing. You have to take two different elevators and long walks down long hallways to just get to a room.
We just came back from a 4 night stay at the Venetian. We had some concern based on reviews we had read about smoke and other issues. Luckily it was all great during out stay. Yes, there is no coffee in the room but there are plenty of options around (like a 24 hour Starbucks at Treasure Island or the Bouchon in house from 6am). Upon our arrival they were able to accommodate us right away though we arrived pretty early. I asked for a quiet and away-from-smoke room and they gave us a room in the Venezia tower, which is the furthest from the Casino so there was absolutely no smell of smoke. Yes, the Casino is smoking but none of the rooms are. The problem in the elevators is that if you´re on it with someone who´s been in the casino for awhile this person will smell of smoke but all rooms are non smoking. The rooms, yes, they are huge and clean. The bathroom is also enormous and stocked with all you necessary toiletries. Everyone was super nice and courteous. We felt very safe. As for restaurants, the options are endless. You can find someone for everyone. And for every budget. From high end restaurants to cheap eats. All inside the hotel. We booked the bell trans shuttle but for a party of 3 or more it´s probably the same to get a taxi. It´s a 15-20 minute ride from the airport. Location was awesome. Close to everything. though you´ll end up walking a lot!!!
We’ve been to Vegas a few times and our first time was at the Encore (part of Wynn) which was gorgeous but a little far down the strip and a bit fancy for us. Our friends were staying at the Venetian so we booked as close as we could get through our credit card points at the Palazzo. Upon arrival we asked if there were any upgrades and they were able to get us in a larger room on the 35th floor for just the resort fee per day at the Venetian. As you walk in you see the gorgeous ceilings and details everywhere! Our room was beautiful! It was pretty large (1400 sq ft) and had two bathrooms which was nice and very clean. We had a great view and really enjoyed it.
I would have to say we didn’t really come across a lot of employees there but never really needed anything. Our rooms were always clean when we came back in the afternoon/evening, the halls were always very clean, and restaurants were amazing!!! We went to Delmonico on our first night there and didn’t know what to expect...it was by far our favorite meal while we were there! Lots of quick good food spots inside located close to the elevators and a yummy restaurant on the 10th flooor called Bouchon that we visited on the last day. We also really enjoyed the location on the strip as we went exploring and enjoyed the stores close by.
We did use the spa services which were very nice but pricey in my eyes, but we didn’t check prices before hand so that was our fault. The spa was beautiful and everyone was very pleasant and inviting and showed us all the different rooms we could relax in and we needed it after a few days there;)
Overall I’m sold on the Venetian and will definitely return next time we’re in Vegas! I never write reviews but love to look at them when booking so wanted to say how much we enjoyed ourselves!
