    Fantastic Hotel and Location

    by LordBage Written Mar 9, 2015

    So I've stayed in Las Vegas 4 times whilst playing in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) at the Rio Casino. All but three times I stayed at The Venetian from the off, and on the fourth occasion, we stayed at the Rio first, but the room was so poor that we cancelled after a single night and moved over to The Venetian again!

    The building where The Venetian sits is incredible. Italian renaissance decor, the beautiful Palazzo next door, and with the ability to jump in a cab to any destination in Vegas at the drop of a hat - you can't go far wrong.

    The Grand Lux Café is inside The Venetian and serves all sorts of amazing food (breakfast shouldn't be missed!!), plus there's the food mall on the upper floor where there's a Panda Express, Johnny Rockets, etc. Aquanox(?) is also a fantastic restaurant for all meat and fish!

    In a nutshell, it's just a superb place, focused on very high end customer service, and where nothing is too much of a big deal for them to make you happy.

    What an extraordinary ambiance! Venetia itself couldn't do better.

    The quality of the animation and the live music, leave me no doubt. This is my favorite hotel in Las Vegas.

    Besides, this is the only hotel where I don't remember the slot machines. Of course they were there, thousands of them everywhere, but... vanished from my memories. And what a good sign that is!

    FREE: The Venetian - Winter in Venice

    by TravellerMel Written Dec 31, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Twice nightly, the Venetian holds "Winter in Venice" holiday parade and light show. Line up early - you will want to see this! The light show is against the buildings themselves and will totally immerse you, and the parade is mesmerizing. Everyone is clad in white with reflective or illuminated costumes. You will see the Winter Queen in her carriage, beautiful ballerinas, and tall white ivy (walkers on stilts). I heard oohs and ahhs from the audience, children and adult alike.

    Runs November 18 - January 6

    Venetian Renaissance Hall

    by Yaqui Updated Mar 3, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These are said to be the replicas of famous 17th & 18th century Renaissance artists Tiepolo, Rici, Pellogrini, and Bambino. The floor is the exact replica of the Church of Gesuiti of Venice built in 1728. Although, they are just replica's, I appreciate them because they are absolutely beautiful. This hall is located by the Check-In-Area. We spent some time admiring them.

    Just above the Armillary Sphere, by the Check-in-area is a very impressive paintings on the ceiling dome of replica's of Giambattista Tiepolo's paintings of Greek mythology from 1725. It was amazing too me how many people didn't even look up. I am glad I did. Another wonderful glimpse of the originals in Venice. My family were impressed too.

    Armillary Sphere~

    by Yaqui Updated Mar 3, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The center piece of the Check-in-area is this massive Armillary Sphere, which was created by Eratosthenes (276-194 BCE),as a navigational tool with longitude and latitude rings to helped map out the constellations. It is very impressive sculpture that graces the lobby and just above it is a dome ceilings of replica's of Giambattista Tiepolo's paintings of Greek mythology of 1725. For me, it gives me a glimpse of the originals in Venice.

    Take a trip along a canal

    by Benson35 Written Jan 19, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're looking for something a little different to do . . . . ride a Gondola in the middle of the desert!

    Gondola rides are what the Venetian hotel and casino offer. You can choose to have an indoor ride or an outdoor ride. The cost (2011) was $16.
    The inside ride is through the canal in the Grand Canal Shops in the Venetian hotel, be prepared for shoppers to stand at the sides of the canal and look down on you in your Gondola! Your Gondolier will sing as you float under bridges and by cafes.

    My parents chose the outdoor ride. They loved it! Comparing it to Venice (Italy) they say it was better! Just as authentic and in much nicer surroundings.

    I love this building The Gondolas ready and waiting for passengers

    The Palazzo part 2

    by machomikemd Written Oct 2, 2011

    part two of my the Palazzo tips with more pictures and a separate gambling part

    Hey, why is the Palazzo not included in the things to do tips? attention tip editor of las vegas!

    The Palazzo is one of the Main Things to do in the Las Vegas Area and is among the top 5 destinations in the Strip besides Wynn, Venetian, Bellagio and Ceasar's. It is the more upscale cousin of the Venetian and the Star of the Sands Gaming Corporation in Las Vegas. The palazzo is one of a few casino cum entertainment complex in Las vegas that features all suite rooms The 3,066 suites range from 720 square feet (nearly two times larger than the average Las Vegas hotel room) to 8,000 square feet. The Palazzo is opulence since the owners, the Sands Corporation spared no expense to set this up. But I still prefer their 7 star property at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore!!!!! it's more expensive there!!!

    besides having a huge gaming area inside and luxe shops at the Shoppes at the Palazzo, the palazzo also has the Lavo Complex, the newest Night Club in Vegas to bee seen and also the Morel's Steakhouse and my personal favorite, Mario Battali's Carnevino Italian Steakhouse. The Palazzo is connected seamlessly to it's Sister, The Landmark, The Venetian.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Make sure that when you go to the museum that you have a lot of time. You can't just go inside and pay a whooping $16.00 fee and just go to the front and get out.

    Also, when you are inside the museum, it gets really crowded. And, taking pictures get into the way sometimes. Just be patient. Some people take time in taking pictures. Some don't. You also have your turn.

    Some visitors don't like it, some do take pictures. It's a free country! To pay $16.00, you must make the most of it...So, I took a lot of pictures!
