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
My family came for a reunion of sorts and we stayed in a suite which was fabulous. I am recently unable to walk long distances and the Venetian has free wheelchairs available but we chose to rent an electric scooter. It was a lifesaver and so great! I felt like the whole staff was there to be helpful to me and I was so well taken care of. They stowed the chair away when we were in restaurants and brought it out to valet upon arrival. Everyone was so nice!
There was plenty of space in the room to park the scooter and charge it without making it hard to get around. The only complaint is the shower/bath combination would have been completely unusable for a truly wheelchair bound person. It was very difficult for me to step over the tub deck myself
I would return again based on the great accommodations
You won’t fully appreciate how disappointing the Venezia Tower rooms are unless you’ve stayed in the other parts of the Venetian or at the Palazzo. The rooms are dated, furniture dinged, dirty vents, no lighting/room automation as in other rooms. Housekeeping not what it should be. Countertops around coffee table, bar all dirty. Would not sit in any of the furniture- this looks like a black light adventure. Hotel stingy with towels - 2 bath towels, 2 wash, hand. Had to call for reasonable quantities of all. No coffee maker, not enough electrical outlets near beds.
Typically get an IHG Spire upgrade when stated at Palazzo several times. Told no here. And no Spire recognition though i mentions it. Told they don’t upgrade as booked on my corporate website. Seems counter to wanting to build corporate partnerships.
Visiting for mom’s birthday. Good location. Love the shops around. The hotel casino is pretty strong in smoke smell. Most than other casinos we visited. Service is great other than housekeeping staff knocking at 8:30 to clean. So if you don’t want to be woken up put your do not disturb sign up
This property is fantastic, a must see. The room was very nice. The service and amenities for the price however left a bit to be desired. Convention rate with taxes and "resort fee" was just shy of $400/night and every day, I walked a half mile for morning coffee. A ridiculous maze of elevators, confusing hallways and security checkpoints before coffee! Most hotels in the US have figured out in-room coffee without room service or a hike. Had some problems with TV and many calls to get this fixed as well as spontaneous gurgling drains early in the morning. The access to amenities on the strip and convention center here is excellent. Could have been five stars...
I love this hotel so much. We've stayed at several Vegas hotels and the Venetian/Palazzo hotels are our favorite. The rooms are large, comfy, and I love the security of it, how quiet it is, how convenient everything is - just name it - and the Venetian has it. This particular trip, my husband got the flu on Saturday. We called down to the concierge who was so helpful and directed us downstairs to a Walgreens where a PA was there who could prescribe him some medicine. See, SOOO convenient. There was a major construction project going on at the pool and construction workers were working early but honestly it wasn't even that loud - we could barely hear and it was right outside our window. I can't wait to go back.
