The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the sensational cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito,  who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling musci groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is a captivating experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

Leave reality behind and experience the fantastical world of Le Rêve, created by Franco Dragone, at Wynn. French for the dream, Le Rêve, depicts a colorful aquatic wonderland of beautiful and mystifying characters. The experience starts when you first enter the theater and realize that this is not your typical showroom. The circular 1608-seat theater is situated around a pool that is 68-and-a-half-feet in diameter with the furthest seat only 42 feet from the water. The 27-foot-deep pool is kept at a comfortable 89 degrees Fahrenheit.Not only does the in-the-round theater put guests at a unique vantage point, but it also makes them feel like they are part of the show as there is no clear line between the audience and the stage. Gymnasts, aerialists and synchronized swimmers appear from every angle, at times ascending from the water, descending from the high arched ceiling or running through the theater and alongside the audience. If you are seated by an aisle, you never know when you are going to look to your side and see a masked face or other curious character staring right back at you.Le Rêve has a loosely woven storyline that begins with a woman and man dancing and then saying goodnight and goodbye to each other. The man departs the stage, and the woman lies down to rest on a bed. Together the woman and the bed slowly disappear underwater, signifying that her spectacular dream is about to begin.The music changes from soft and mysterious to loud and invigorating as creatures of the night arise from the water and emerge from the aisles and make their way to center stage. Some of them look playful and fun while others have a more malevolent appearance. Aerialists are lowered from the ceiling to join in the revelry, and soon the pool is transformed into a spectacular ring of fire.This is one of the many different scene changes in the show that takes place on a platform in the middle of the pool capable of rising 15 feet above the water. There are three additional lifts that enable performers to enter from backstage without having to get wet. They can disappear and reappear in seconds, creating a constantly changing stage area. Special lighting and water effects and a stimulating soundtrack performed live add to Le Rêve's spectacular production elements.Rain pours from the ceiling, smothering the ring of fire and revealing a bevy of beautiful women and then men who seem to materialize from the water. A tall, rotating, tree-like platform rises from the pool where male gymnasts do incredible poses and dives.Different acts and performers seamlessly flow into each other, resulting in a fast-paced and exciting journey where each scene is more amazing than the next. One of the signature acts in the show is a tango number performed with both synchronized swimmers in the pool and tantalizing tango dancers on the platform. It begins with red high heels and then legs appearing from the water and moving around to the upbeat rhythm of the music. Couples enter the platform creating a multi-level dance extravaganza.During another dance sequence, men with large white billowing fans walk onto the stage while the woman, whose character is dreaming, performs a whimsical dance routine. Beautiful patterns created by colorful lights are displayed on the fans as they seem to float and gracefully move above the stage. The audience also gets a view of the woman dancing on stage as a beautiful silhouette behind the fans.While the performers dazzle the audience on stage, in the air and from the water, what's going on behind the scenes is just as amazing. During the show there are 16 divers who aid performers underwater. There are also 100 hookah regulators in the pool to help performers travel underwater or to assist them when they are performing with their heads submerged for long periods of time.The fast-paced show means quick costume changes for the performers and a lot of running up and down stairs to get in position for their next act. A wardrobe attendant is on hand to operate one of the theater elevators, moving performers over 40 times during one 75-minute show. Eleven dressers are also working behind the scenes to assist the cast of 91 performers with 2,000 costume items.Back on stage, the cast continues to mystify the audience with more incredible performances. A lamppost is lowered with a man wearing pants and a suit jacket effortlessly leaning on it. As the lamppost hangs in mid-air the man balances his body away from the post and horizontal to the ground using only his incredible strength and agility to achieve this feat.Three more dream-like characters are lowered in a wire framed globe where they perform an amazing routine suspended above the water. They weave their way through the open frame and hang off of one another, creating a series of beautiful poses as the globe is lowered and then raised to different heights above the water. It is just one of many awe-inspiring moments in Le Rêve.Champagne CircleGuests who purchase the Champagne Circle seats get an extra special viewing experience. The Champagne Circle seats are the furthest from the stage but at only 42 feet from the water, this is still a spectacular view. Located foot-level in front of the Champagne Circle seats is a screen that shows pre-recorded backstage footage of the show before it starts. Once the lights go dim and the show begins, the screens give guests a live behind-the-scenes view of the performers when they are underwater, backstage or descending from more than 80 feet above the stage. During a synchronized swimming routine when only the performers legs are visible to the audience, the screens allow guests seated in the Champagne Circle to see how the swimmers manage to stay underwater for so long, one of the many intricacies that go into putting on this extravagant show. The Champagne Circle experience also includes complimentary champagne bottle service and a tray of two chocolate covered strawberries and six savory chocolate truffles.-- By Caroline Fontein

There are luxury hotels, and then there's The Palazzo. Since opening in 2008, as a sister to the beloved Italian-themed resort The Venetian, it has become the benchmark for extravagance, impeccable service and hospitality. The resort is largest LEED-certified building in the world as well. During the construction of The Palazzo, some 70 percent of waste materials were recycled, diverting nearly 42,000 tons from the landfill. Numerous green initiatives regarding recycling, energy, water, air quality and cleaning products are also in place here.Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, this property commands stunning views -- especially for guests staying in the Prestige Suites, its exclusive concierge level on the 23rd floor. All of the accommodations, however, are suites and boast exceptional comfort. Elegant while expressing warmth through modern décor, the suites start at 720 square feet in size. They're all appointed with Egyptian cotton sheets, pillow-top beds, multiple flat-screen LCD televisions, a DVD player, an in-room safe and a private work desk with wireless internet access. In addition, the spacious bathroom boasts a 20-inch LCD television, a Roman tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower.When it comes to entertainment, there's nothing like "Panda!" This multi-faceted production comes from Beijing and features acrobatics, martial arts, music and dance. Among the talented cast are the China National Acrobatic Troupe and Shaolin Monastery Kung Fu Monks Troupe.  The restaurants at The Palazzo come from the who's who of the culinary world. Take Cut by illustrious chef Wolfgang Puck. This stylish steakhouse offers cutting-edge interior design and a sophisticated menu of the finest prime beef. Then there’s Carnevino, an Italian-themed steakhouse by chef Mario Batali, with an international wine list from winemaker Joe Bastianich. Morel’s French Steakhouse & Bistro is a contemporary restaurant where traditional French cuisine meets the popular flavors of American cooking. Plus, you can experience an amazing evening of modern Brazilian/Japanese cuisine at SushiSamba or enjoy a delicious specialty hamburger with a variety of unusual toppings at i?burgers.World-class chef Emeril Lagasse opened the elegant Table 10 to showcase his distinctive Creole cooking, but guests can also check out the laid-back, party atmosphere in his sports bar Lagasse’s Stadium. He combines snack favorites with his bold culinary creations here. There's plush stadium-style seating, skyboxes, an abundance of big-screen TVs, billiard tables and an outdoor patio just steps from the Strip as well.Speaking of casual eateries, check out Grimaldi's, the famous Brooklyn-born, thin-crust pizzeria. And a broad selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner items -- along with 20 fantastic desserts -- is available at the Grand Luxe Café.Pleasure seekers will find a fusion of chic design, state-of-the-art technology and signature drinks at Lavo, a restaurant and nightclub operated by the same people who created Tao Asian Bistro and Nightclub. With more than 20,000 square feet of space, it offers fine Italian cuisine, a sexy lounge and one of the most energetic dance floors in town. To keep the good times rolling at night, the Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar and the Fusion Latin Mixology Bar pour an array of hand-crafted cocktails. The Salute Lounge features high-energy bands, while the Laguna Champagne Bar is perfect for more intimate mixing and mingling.The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo has bragging rights for bringing Barneys New York to Las Vegas. The 875,000-square-foot themed mall stretches from the indoor canal at The Venetian all the way to the Waterfall Atrium at The Palazzo and presents shopaholics with a dizzying lineup of approximately 160 upscale fashion, jewelry and lifestyle stores. If you need to escape to a place that inspires relaxation, head to the resort’s five-acre pool deck. Situated on the fourth floor and reminiscent of a Roman garden, the gorgeous five-acre facility is merged with that of The Venetian. In total, there are seven different pools (including the adults-only Azure Pool), four hot tubs and 41 cabanas. Or guests can seek out a pampering experience at Canyon Ranch SpaClub. A tranquil sanctuary, it boasts a sauna, a steam room, more than 80 treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness studio, a 40-foot rock climbing wall and a grill that serves healthy gourmet cuisine.Since it's adjoined to the gigantic 4,027-room Venetian, anything that's not at The Palazzo is just steps away, like Broadway-caliber shows, such as "Rock of Ages."Defining the spirit of elegance and charm, The Palazzo proudly delivers all the latest trends in retail, restaurants and luxurious living. Coexisting with Las Vegas' neon displays and non-stop action, guests can revel in it all from a room atop one of the city's most revered resorts.-- By Renée LiButti

Disappointed in Room
PostedJanuary 12, 2014
We booked this package with air and hotel and the Winter in Venice Package.
Upgraded to The prestige Bella Suite. Upon arrival we did not have any instructions as to where to check in or not offered bell service. As senior citizens we had to take our suitcases to check in area which after standing in line for a long time were then instructed to check in through the casino and up to 23rd floor. This is a fairly long trek.(still no offer of assistance). Upon arrival in room it was dirty. Shower door looked like they had never been cleaned, sticky glass rings on all surfaces and dust that you could see streaks when wiped away with fingers. Even on window ledge there were nuts left there.
The view was terrible. Moved to another room immediately. Still sticky glass rings on surfaces. For a 5 year old Hotel I found the furnishings (couch coffee table) to be worn and not very clean.
No information in room as far as room service menu or amenities so we missed out on a lot.
As far as casino went we were never offered drinks or service while frequenting the games.
The Prestige lounge was great. Loved the fact that we had deluxe continental breakfast and special appies 5-8.
This was a choice between Belagio and Palazzo as these are two we had not stayed at before.
Booked the LeReeve through this website. Another Reason we stayed here was the vicinity.
Le Reeve is absolutely Fantastic. I have seen O before and both are wonderful productions. Took advantage of the Dinner combo at the Wynn and the Buffet at the Wynn was extraordinary. Great selection.
Also took in Jersey Boys which I would see again as it is #1 show in Vegas for a reason.
I found that the distance to the poker room which in the Venetian is a little far.
All in all we had a good vacation but I don't know if I would stay at Palazzo again.

What hours are the pool(s) open?

I noted the close was 4 PM on our visit. I think it was open at 9 am but not sure. Only the large pool was open and both hot tubs open. The pool is heated and it was very clean area. Nice as it was quite cold when I was there last week.
