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
It was a beautiful room in a beautiful hotel. Right smack in the middle of the strip. Easy access to everything. Connected to the palazzo. Very big resort with slot to see. We had trouble finding where we had to stand for the Uber pick ups.
Stunning grounds, beautiful artwork, and great service charmed us at The Venetian. We have actually been to Venice, Italy and the authenticity of the decor and architecture at this resort in Vegas is top notch. You can even take a gondola ride!
My wife and I stayed at the Venetian for 3 nights after Thanksgiving. It is a hide hotel and is connected to the Palazzo. It’s like being able to stay in 2 hotels for the price of one. Guests have access to both hotels’ restaurants, pools, and gyms!
The rooms at the Venetian are all larger than average hotel room size. The hotel has 2 great restaurants which we enjoyed. The Grand Lux Cafe and the Bouchon Bistro, which is great for breakfast. A stay here is definitely a good value for the money.
The room, the staff and the atmosphere is perfect. There is action and fun in the hotel, but relaxing and quiet in the room. We really enjoyed our stay and will return again. The price was great for the value.
This was my first visit to the Venetian in over 10 years, and I'd forgotten what a wonderful hotel it truly is. Everything about my stay was outstanding, from the effort-free check-in/check-out, to the efficient housekeeping, the amazing fitness center, blazing fast wi-fi, friendly valet and concierge, amusing wax museum, yummy restaurants, and of course, the beautiful rooms. I can honestly say that this was the BEST hotel experience I've ever had in my entire life. I could stay here a week, never leave the property, and still have the best vacation ever. Thank you, Venetian, for proving that perfection is possible!
