Venetian - Las Vegas Hotel Review

Bringing Italy's romantic charm to the Las Vegas Strip, The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino exudes the same luxury, beauty and grace of its inspiration, the city of Venice. A Five-Diamond resort, The Venetian boasts eighteen restaurants, four-thousand suites, eighty international boutiques in The Grand Canal Shoppes, Italian gondola rides through the man-made quarter-mile-long Grand Canal, the huge Doge’s Palace Casino, Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, and the breathtakingly, mesmerizing Venetian Ballroom.

Indeed, one expects the hotel and its amenities to drip with luxury, but according to promotional material, even the casino is described as possessing "exquisite elegance". The largest poker room in Las Vegas, free poker lessons, tournaments, and no-limit games, all make The Venetian a popular gambling attraction. In addition to poker, the casino offers a race and sports lounge with large screen monitors, and slots where jackpots have been as high as thirty-million dollars.

To make a guest's stay the most comfortable as possible, there are no rooms at The Venetian. Instead, the hotel features seven types of suites appropriately named "Luxury, Bella, Rialto, Piazza, Prima, Renaissance and Penthouse". From six-hundred and fifty square feet to a rambling twenty-nine hundred square feet, the suites are adorned with Roman tubs, plush bedding, marble, fabric wall hangings and art, as well as necessities such as refreshment centers, work stations, and safes.

Further, another magnificent section of the resort's accommodations is the Venezia Tower, a twelve-story addition which holds one-thousand suites. While luxury is still the focus, these suites are more secluded offering their guests complete peace and solitude. Close to the attractions of the main resort, the Tower's tranquil nature is ideal for guests escaping the hustle and bustle of The Strip.

Whether the exuberant bridal couple lives in Vegas or plans to hold a destination wedding, The Venetian is a fairytale location. Choose between the full-service Wedding Chapel or the grand Venetian Ballroom. And a wedding here would not be complete without the sumptuous treats crafted by world renowned pastry chef, Peter Wimler. Of course, catering, floral arrangements, and wedding photography are also available when planning a wedding at this luxury resort.

The Venetian offers plenty of entertainment to please all types of guests. Nightclubs, comedy performances, The Phantom of the Opera, Blue Man Group, and specialty events such as the Bonhams & Butterfields Salon Jewelry and Watches sale or the Tyrannosaurus skeleton, other dinosaurs, and fossils auction.

Lastly, an extra special perk is the hotel's "Suite-est" Rate Guarantee that states, "If you find a lower rate for The Venetian on any other Web site after making a suite reservation within 24 hours on, simply submit a "Suite-est" Rate Guarantee claim form to us and we'll honor the lower rate and give you a complimentary upgrade to the next luxurious suite level".
