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
After looking at the various hotels on the strip we decided on this one and we are glad we did. The attention to detail is impressive. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. We ate at the Factory Kitchen, Yardbird, and Chica and we also had drinks at Rosina. We have separate reviews for those restaurants. The staff at every restaurant and bar were very attentive. Every room in the hotel is a suite and when you compare prices to room sizes at other hotels this is by far the best. The casino is nice and bright. The smell of cigarette smoke was minimal. You can easily spend the entire day discovering this hotel and its sister hotel, the Palazzo. We utilized the mobile check out feature which allowed us to avoid the long check out line. On a side note, I am an IHG hotel member, and if you want the points for the stay you have to book through the IHG website directly and not the hotel website to get the points. This hotel is top notch and we will definitely stay here on our next trip.
During a recent business trip to Las Vegas I had the privilege to stay at two incredible resorts one of which was the Venetian. The Venetian is a remarkable resort that doesn't disappoint here you can find delicousceats and plenty of shopping the rooms were world class and very cozy. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give them a 10.
We’ve been to Las Vegas several times. Once again we found ourselves back at the Venetian for a second time this time with our two teens 18 & 16 and my mother-in-law. First time staying during pool season and it truly was the best! It solidified our opinion that the Venetian is truly the best resort on the strip and we will definitely continue staying here on future visits. Our vacation was one week in length with two rooms booked. The staff was always a pleasure to deal with, the rooms were cleaned daily, room service was fast, casino was fun, pools were open and bopping, the selection of shops and restaurants are amazing. Our kids loved Lavo and Delmonico’s. We rented a cabana one day at Palazzo and reserved a daybed at the Venetian on another day. Both were fantastic however we decided the daybeds at the Venetian were our favourite. Highly recommend. Worth every penny especially during high season as the pools can get crowded. There is nothing negative to say about the Venetian. Las Vegas as a whole left a lasting impression on our kids and Venetian was a big part of that. Thank you for giving us such a memorable vacation! We can’t wait to go back!
