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
This was my second visit to the Venetion and forgot how beautiful the rooms are. Standard double queen is 700sqft with livingroom space, table and massive washroom. Swimming pools are nice but extremely busy especially jn June. Great location on strip accessible to bus stop in front, convenience stores and fastfood 5 min walk away. We fit 4 girls comfortably and totally worth the price!
Highly recommend this hotel.
Really impressive Hotel and Casino, not only by it's size but the facilities nearby. Good coffee shops, restaurants, malls and the Casino.
I stay with my wife and two children for 5 nights. It could be perfect if a guest nearby or room wouldn't brought a dog that barked all night long.
I have been all around the world and I have never seen a hotel like this. This hotel is so huge and magnificent and wonderfully themed, and the rooms are amazing (the beds are especially comfortable). I totally recommend staying here, it is beautiful.
The venician hotel is beautiful inside .u can have a gondola ride .we went to Madame Tussauds there it's well worth a look .the ceilings are breathtaking. Definitely one of the hotels to walk through x
The rooms are splendid and very posh, similar to the Conrad hotel rooms in Dubai.
We had twin kingsize beds. The lounge area of the room is fantastic and very comfortable. Two large flat screen tv's, one for the Beds one for the lounge.
** Be careful though when walking from the sleeping area to the lounge, as the wooden stairs can be very slippery - it's as though it was polished with teflon. Carpet would have been safer **
The in-room dining food was fantastic, with a wide selection of food.
On the downside:
Getting from the car park to the room is a tough gauntlet, it's nearly 10 minutes of walking and barging through crowds of people. The front desk is even further.
It takes a while to get used to finding your way around. I would say leave your suitcases in the car, check in, get familiarised with navigating around the casino/hotel/mall complex, then when you know exactly where you're going - then go and get the bags from the car.
While the room was great inside, the views outside were rubbish, all we had to look at was a large roof full of air conditioning units.
There was no microwave or kettle or any facility to heat food, which is a nightmare when you're travelling with a baby. We reserved a baby cot and fridge, but not of those were provided when we got there.
The bathroom is posh, but dated. Too much mirrors.
There was a small tv inside the bathroom, but it was very small and looked old. the picture quality looked strange like it had humidity damage. I've experienced better.
I understand the hotel is the 2nd largest in the world, with 4'000 rooms, something which the staff used as an excuse everytime I requested for something. "We can't provide you a microwave - because we have 4'000 rooms" - if I gave you a £100 tip, I'm sure you would find that microwave.
