Colossal in size, The Venetian Resort Las Vegas is an Old World-style creation in modern-day Vegas. The granddaddy of luxury brand themed resorts, it's got everything from gondolas to some of the best places to shop, dine and party. The vibe:Over-the-top Italian elegance, abounding amore, luxury and service reign supremeWhat we love:At The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, the world is at your belly. You can eat like a paesano at restaurants operated by Buddy Valastro and Wolfgang Puck - and drink like one too because wine is plentiful. Or savor other cuisines including South American fare from Lorena Garcia.All of the rooms in The Venetian are suites. Our fave things about The Venetian's suites: the foyers (we just love saying that word), sunken living rooms and marble bathrooms with large Roman tubs (the true thrones of emperors).Insider tips:Speaking of The Venetian's "spread out-ness," if you want to bypass the casino to get to the Grand Canal Shoppes, you can enter right off Las Vegas Boulevard. There's access through a hallway that passes by the Rockhouse bar, Buddy V's and Carlo's Bakery, where you should stop and get a pastry.Now there are more outstanding restaurants in The Venetian than fingers on our hands, but we're singling out Bouchon because you might not see it while wandering around the casino floor. It's located in the resort's exclusive Venezia Tower. You'll have to take the elevator near the front desk to the 10th floor. When you get off, you'll see an opulent lobby in one direction and Bouchon's little known entrance in the other.Good to know:**The Venetian Pool deck will be closed until late Spring 2019. If you want to soak up some rays, you can head to one of the many pools at The Palazzo Las Vegas.**If you're driving into Vegas, valet at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas isn't just at the front of the hotel. Pull into the parking garage and make your way to the third floor and you'll get the same great valet service at that same great for the free price tag.Although the plaza in front of The Venetian is beautiful, reminiscent of St. Mark's Square and the Doge's Palace, pay attention to vehicles coming in and out of the resort via the Strip. The Venetian's outside is just as gorgeous as its interior, so naturally your gnat-like attention span is going to be focused on all of the great art and decor that surround the resort's exterior and not the busy boulevard that lies mere steps away. Keep your heads up people, that's all we're sayin'. If you like pools (it's 100+ degrees here, so we're going to make that assumption), you're going to love The Venetian and The Palazzo. There are 10 pools between the two properties, so there's plenty of opportunity for you to get down on some "Marco Polo." Just be sure to keep your flip-flops on deck (see what we did there?), because remember that weather we mentioned earlier? If you're not prepared, that heat will burn your little footsies and put a damper on your pool hoppin' plans STAT.

Absolutely stunning hotel ...
PostedFebruary 9, 2013
The Venetian was absolutely stunning and the price was right!! The room was amazing with close amenities. Front desk/concierge were quick and prompt whenever we called.
Just a couple minor issues ... upon arrival in the room, we noticed two dirty glasses, there were items from the snack bar that were missing and there was no coffee maker!! Other than that, everything was fine and taken care of.
Definitely will return and recommend!
