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
I was in Las Vegas for CES and my company had a room block in the Venetian. I was put in the Venizia tower because I was advised that there was an additional upcharge to stay in the Venetian tower. (like $40 per night or something like that) My company was already paying the substantial CES room rates so this seemed to be an exorbitant add-on. That said -- the suite was beautiful and clean. However, it definitely added steps getting over to the other tower since my CES space was in the main part of the Venetian. I really appreciated the separate seating area in my room as my team ended up working there several times during the week since the lobby and public sitting areas were so packed. The shoppes and food options are great on property so you really don't ever have to leave for an entire week. It was a treat to stay there.
Loved the decor of this hotel! Absolutely beautiful!! Worth staying if you can afford, seriously not sure what we paid a resort fee for- nothing that we would (on vacation didn’t want to work out) or could use!!! Thought that was a waste of my hard earned $$.
Hall leading to the room reaked!!! Smelt like what they use to clean old jails or cover the smell of sewage.
Views throughout hotel
Room- 24th floor
Pros-Smelt nice and clean, very spacious, we slept like babies on the most comfy king size bed, bathroom was huge- loved the separate door or toilet, huge tub and double vanity, also had a make-up vanity with lighted mirror!, had a great view of treasure island and trump tower
Cons- doesn’t get a good cleaning, dust covered most furniture, hated the mini bar, couldn’t use the frig, internet was slow, no free water, coffee or anything had to pay for anything that you consume!!! No microwave or coffee pot- you can get those free at a dive motel and not at a 5 star one??? Go figure.
Staff- all hotel including security
AWESOME- I’ve been in customer service 20 years and all personnel were amazing, helpful, and very nice! Felt very very safe with all the security! Loved the fact you had to have a room key to access the towers. Felt very secure. All staff were amazing!!!! Very impressed!!!! All were so welcoming! And no joke was honestly looking up jobs to work there when I got home!!!! Not worth the move for me though unfortunately.
Casino- The BEST on the strip. My husband had to pry me out of there even to eat lol. The atmosphere was awesome, servers at tables and machine were awesome except one- I usually tip very well because I’ve waited on people my whole career at a few different jobs and still doing so and one girls attitude was very very rude, so even though I don’t drink alcohol( but I’m a bar manager) she got nothing!!! So rude! All the other girls were amazing!!! The variety of games and presentation was above par!!! My favorite part hands down was how attentive everyone was!!!
Check in/out- was effortless, very quick.
Dining- cheaper to eat in one of there many restaurants. Has a very good selection to fit any budget.
Shopping- wow is all I can say, all the major brand stores.
I will hopefully stay again in the future if there are really good deals. It’s pricey to stay here!!! If not the Flamingo has awesome rooms too for a very very affordable price and they are very nice also. (Visited my father-in-law there, was impressed with the price for the room you get!!!!)
Wow, where do I start, I've never been to Vegas before and we loved it, we booked the venetian for our 3 night stay, from pulling up outside to the reception area we were awe struck, words can't describe the size the decor, everything.
We were greeted politely at reception and checked in, they give you a map to find your room so you know it's gonna be big, room found we opened the door and were amazed at the size and comfort and decor of the room, a huge bathroom 2 sinks, 2 tvs, sofa, office, dining table, massive bed, and an amazing view of the strip, you have to see the rooms to believe them, we decided to go and look round the hotel, two casinos, countless beautiful restaurants, spa all looked great, but when you eventually find the grande canal Shoppes is when you realise this hotel is unbelievable, a sky painted celling with blue sky and clouds that seem to move as you walk along, a venetian canal with singing gondoliers paddling people round, shops restaurants, venetian architecture and a replica of Mark's square all within the hotel it has to be seen to be believed, we ate at restaurants within the hotel during our stay and the service was fantastic in fact everywhere within the hotel the staff and service were fantastic, we loved bouchon and yardbird especially, but there's so much choice, we would recommend this hotel to anyone and I will tell everyone who asks about the venetian and urge them to visit.
Staff was extremely friendly and professional and knowledgeable. Resort was very clean and inviting. Felt very safe! Will never stay anywhere else in Vegas! Shopping was fun. Pools were closed but access to the Palazzo pools was not an issue. Would recommend to anyone!
We have been coming to this resort 3 times for the past 3 years for CES show and we won't go to any other hotel because this hotel provides anything that you want in Vegas. The rooms are always clean and the service is just excellent. They have wonderful stake houses which you can dine in without leaving the resort. We highly recommend this resort to everyone.
