Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas! In the city that never sleeps, we decided to base ourselves right along The Strip at The Venetian Las Vegas. Located right smack in the middle of all the action, next to other well known properties like The Wynn, Caesars Palace and Treasure Island, The Venetian boasts a stunning design and architecture that literally brings the romance of Venice to Las Vegas.
After arriving at the main driveway, staff assisted to offload our bags and whisked us to the front desk for check in. It was evident that they spared no effort to infuse the grandeur of Venice in the property’s interiors too.
While the original property opened in 1999 with just over 3,000 suites, a new tower was added in 2003 and brought the total suite tally to around 4,000. Later on in 2007, its sister property The Palazzo opened right next to it, completing its journey to becoming a sprawling resort in Las Vegas.
The Venetian is actually an all-suite property, and its suites are typically around twice the size of other regular hotel rooms along The Strip.
We had a separate living room in our split-level suite. The interior design and furnishings complemented each other nicely.
Apart from a standard work desk there was also a decently sized dining table, perfect for in-suite dining.
As for the bedroom, curtains draped nicely around the headboard adding some enchantment to the entire suite experience. Light switches were also well within arms’ reach which was a nice added touch.
Note that the property did not stinge on having only one television set that swivels, but rather decided to mount one each for the bedroom and the living room, even though they were just a couple of metres apart.
There was ample storage space in the wardrobes, and the usual minibar offerings were sufficient.
The bathroom appeared a little dated, but still very spacious!
Even with limited countertop space in the bathroom, they still made an effort to install a double vanity, which was much appreciated.
The Venetian is famous for its canals and gondolas. Staying here grants you convenient access to the Grand Canal Shoppes, along which numerous retail and F&B shops line the canal that gondolas can whisk you to wherever the canals take you, even to The Palazzo!
The “skies” above the Grand Canal Shoppes also stay sunny and partially cloudy regardless of the actual weather outside.
During our stay, we tried a couple of F&B outlets, such as Canonita that serves Mexican soul food, and Chica that serves Latin cuisine. Both were splendid, made even better by the ambience at both dining venues.
In terms of other resort facilities, the property emphasises health and wellness in no better way than having the CanyonRanch spa and fitness centre onsite. The centre boasts a sprawling gym and a 3-storey rock climbing wall as well!
Guests can also access the outdoor pools at The Palazzo if you so wish to do so.
A review of The Venetian is not complete without covering the exterior, which features the world famous Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge. Do make it a point to catch the beautiful exteriors both in the day and at night, to appreciate the contrast between the two.
The Venetian Resort Las Vegas has just about everything you need to enjoy your stay in Las Vegas! Given that this is an all-suite property, you’ll be assured of spacious rooms that are beautifully appointed, and elevated even more by the immersive experience walking along the canals that literally take you right to romantic Venice itself! The numerous luxury shops and F&B options also keep you entertained during your stay. Stay tuned as the property is set to open a sphere-shaped venue and arena, aptly named “Sphere at The Venetian Resort”, sometime later in 2023.
