Reviews On The Venetian Hotel In Las Vegas – The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas is one of the most iconic properties on the Las Vegas Strip. With 7,093 suites in three towers, the Venetian and Palazzo transports guests to a luxurious resort in classic Italian style with endless dining and activities. We recently stayed at the Venice Prestige Club, so read on to see if it’s worth it.
The Venetian has a true 5 star location. Towards the northern end of the strip, this fully integrated resort is the perfect base for travelers looking to explore the strip, but also a fantastic location if you plan to stay on property. The Venetian is a 10-20 minute drive from the airport and is conveniently located near the Fashion Show Mall, one of the best shopping experiences in Las Vegas. Nearby you can walk to the Linq “high roller” experience, Caeser’s Hotel and many of the activities and facilities that the strip is known for.
Reviews On The Venetian Hotel In Las Vegas
Given the size of this hotel, it’s no surprise that the lobby and check-in is a bit rough, especially if you’re not staying in the Prestige Club. When we stopped by the valet, we were told the room was full. We asked if this happens often and the consensus was “daily”. It’s a quick drive away to a parking garage, but it’s worth noting that it’s extremely low in the roof.
St Mark’s Square Las Vegas
After finding a self-parking spot on the top floor, we wound our way through the elevators, casino floor, and lobby to inquire about the Prestige Club check-in area. The line to check in in the lobby itself was extremely long, so we were grateful to be sent to the actual club to check in instead. The elevators to access the Prestige Club on the 36th floor are right next to the self-parking elevators, so it’s worth noting that you would need to get in line for this self-parking if you plan to stay in the Prestige Club.
The space in the lobby for check-in and check-out is very small considering the number of guests the hotel can accommodate. The lines were quite long every time we went through the lobby. If you have IHG elite status, you can access the “VIP” line, which has been significantly shorter all along. However, if you booked a standard room and have no status, expect a bit of a wait.
As a note, smoking is still permitted in the Venetian Casino. Since the casino is directly adjacent to the lobby, the smell was quite strong throughout the day and night.
When we arrived at Club Prestige, we had a wonderful experience. We were quickly registered and sent to relax with a glass of champagne in the salon. There was never a line to check in to the lounge and Prestige Club guests can check in and out directly in the lounge, bypassing any need for a lobby. The club lounge is also a concierge service, so if you need tickets or show reservations, they can take care of that as well.
Venetian 1 Bedroom Suite
We booked the Prestige Club Luxury King suite. At the time, the Prestige Club upgrade was about double the price of the room. Prestige Club rooms have better views, a higher floor and access to club-level amenities such as continental breakfast, all-day tea and coffee, evening hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail reception. If you’ve ever been to Las Vegas, you know that drinks don’t come cheap. If you enjoy cocktails in bars and restaurants, 4 drinks in the club lounge basically cover the price of your room.
The suite itself measures 650 square feet and is very spacious. Whether you are in the Prestige Club or not, the King Suite is the same size and amenities. The Venetian advertises some of the largest standard rooms in the industry and they are not wrong. Each room has a sunken full-size living room, king (or two queen) beds, and a large bathroom with a tub, shower, and double vanity. Although dated, the suites are comfortable and have master switches by the bed and electronic curtains that you control next to your bed. We really appreciated the little modern touches, despite the age of the hotel. USB ports and convenient bedside charging have also been added to the desks.
The bath products are custom-made for Venetians and smell very nice. They also offer amenities you’d expect but are too often forgetting about during the COVID-19 pandemic, including q-tips, shower caps, and more.
Compared to some of the housekeeping disasters we’ve experienced in Las Vegas recently, we were pleasantly surprised to find the suite exceptionally clean. They also offer daily housekeeping and room cleaning. There were enough towels, toiletries and the room itself was clean.
The Palazzo At The Venetian Review: What To Really Expect If You Stay
A stocked minibar is available, but please note that you cannot remove an item without it being charged to your bill. If you accidentally touch an item, be sure to check it out at the front desk, as it will have to be removed from your account. There is a clear note on the minibar, but it can be easy to knock over items in the fridge or tray. They do not offer additional refrigerators or coffee makers in the room.
Overall the rooms are dated but large and comfortable. Our room was extremely quiet, even though it was a connecting room, and we felt very comfortable throughout our stay.
We found the service at the Venetian to be generally professional, courteous and friendly. From the check-in agents at the Prestige Club to the waiters at the club and restaurants, we enjoyed our service experience. Although there was nothing special about the service, it was consistent and polite.
Housekeeping came twice a day which ensured we always had fresh towels and a clean room to come home to. Housekeeping was courteous and professional and overall did a good job. It should be noted that the Conrad Las Vegas did not offer daily housekeeping, so the twice daily housekeeping was a real treat.
The Palazzo At The Venetian®, Las Vegas
The waiters in the club lounge were definitely a highlight as they were constantly running back and forth to keep guests’ glasses full and comfortable.
The Canaletto restaurant, one of Venice’s first restaurants, was very fast and efficient. Although we were never at all impressed with the service in restaurants or hotels, it was usually efficient and professional.
The Venetian offers a wide variety of restaurants for everyone, including Italian, Mexican, American and more. Bouchon, Thomas Keller’s famous restaurant, is considered one of the best in the area. We have dined at a Venetian restaurant several times and love sitting in St. Mark’s Square while people watching.
However, there are not many breakfast options on site. For early risers, you’ll find only a few cafes where you can grab a morning snack, and you should expect some long lines. Club Prestige definitely has a high value for breakfast lovers. Easy and free access to coffee and continental breakfast is a huge win.
The Palazzo Las Vegas
There are many well-known restaurants in Venice, such as LAVO, Milos and Tao. You’ll find no shortage of food options right inside the hotel, and if you want to venture out, the Strip is easy and convenient access. The only feature missing is outdoor seating or dining. While many of the newer hotels on the Strip have plenty of outdoor dining options, it’s a bit disappointing to have nowhere to go out, especially during the time of COVID. The Fashion Show Mall is across the street and offers many great restaurants.
Overall, the Venetian has everything you would expect from a Las Vegas hotel: pools, clubs, shows, and many restaurants. The addition of the club level is a nice bonus for the property, offering guests a premium experience if they want something a little different.
There are a dozen pools and Jacuzzis available in summer, and 2 pools are open in winter. The pool terraces are extensive with large seating areas and a bar.
Canyon Ranch Spa is located between the Palazzo and Venetian estates and offers their traditional massages and treatments as well as a huge fitness center with a climbing wall and several equipment rooms. Of all the Las Vegas hotels we stayed at, this was the most extensive fitness center with huge options for keeping fit.
The Venetian Las Vegas Review
The Mall at the Venetian has many shops, restaurants and attractions for you to discover. The Venetian is famous for its canals that run throughout the hotel and mall and is an impressive sight. Guests can take canal tours that take about 10 minutes.
Last but not least, the Prestige Club is a great feature of the hotel, offering guests a relaxing environment to enjoy a cup of coffee, breakfast, drinks or appetizers throughout the day.
Although outdated, the hotel has a classic elegance and theme that is rare in “new” construction in Las Vegas. The ornate design and commitment to the Italian theme is clear and consistent
