Rooms At The Venetian Las Vegas – The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas is one of the most iconic properties on the Las Vegas Strip. Home to 7,093 suites across three towers, The Venetian and Palazzo transport guests to a lavish, classic Italian-themed resort with endless restaurants and activities. We recently stayed in the Prestige Club of the Venetian, so read on to find out if it’s worth it.
The Venetian has a true 5 star location. On the northern side 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. A short 10-20 minute drive from the airport, The Venetian is conveniently located near the Fashion Show Mall, one of the best shopping experiences in Las Vegas. Within walking distance you will find the Linq “high roller” experience, Caeser’s hotel and a number of activities and amenities that the strip is known for.

Given the scale of this hotel, it’s no surprise that the lobby and check-in experience is a bit rough, especially if you’re not staying in the Prestige Club. When we arrived at the valet, we were told that the valet was full. We asked if this happens often, and the consensus was “daily”. The parking garage is a quick drive away, but worth mentioning that it is extremely low in the roof.
A Slice Of Italy In Las Vegas: The Venetian Las Vegas Hotel Review
Finding a self-parking spot on the highest floor, we wandered through the elevators, casino floor, and lobby to inquire about the Prestige Club check-in area. The check-in line in the lobby itself was very long, so we were grateful to be directed to the actual club to enter 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 have to drive for that self-parking if you plan to stay in the Prestige Club.
The lobby area for check-in and check-out is very small in relation to how many guests the hotel can support. Every time we went through the lobby, the lines were quite long. If you have IHG elite status, there is a “VIP” line you have access to that has been significantly shorter at all times. However, if you booked a standard room and are out of status, expect a bit of a wait.
As a note, smoking is still allowed in the casino at the Venetian. Since the casino is directly next to the lobby, the smell was quite strong throughout the day and night.
When we arrived at the Prestige Club, we had a wonderful experience. We were quickly checked in and sent to relax with a glass of champagne in the lounge. The lounge check-in never had a queue at any point and Prestige Club guests can check in and out directly from the lounge, bypassing any need for the lobby. The club level lounge is also a concierge service, so if you need tickets or reservations for shows, they can take care of that as well.

We booked a Prestige Club Luxury King Suite. At the time, the Prestige Club upgrade was about double the cost of the room. Prestige Club rooms have better views, a higher floor and access to club-level amenities, such as continental breakfast, tea and coffee throughout the day, hors d’oeuvres in the evening and a cocktail reception. If you’ve been to Las Vegas before, you know that drinks don’t come cheap. 4 drinks at the Club Lounge are essentially break-even on your room rate if you enjoy cocktails at the bars and restaurants.
The suite itself is 650 square feet and very spacious. Whether you are in Prestige Club or not, the King Suite is the same size and amenities. The Venetian claims some of the largest standard rooms in the industry and they are not wrong. Each room has a full-sized sunken living area, king-size beds (or two queen-size beds) and a large bathroom with a tub, shower and double sink. Although dated, the suites are comfortable and have main switches by the bed as well as electronic curtains that are controlled by your bed. We really appreciated the small modern touches, despite the hotel’s age. They also added USB ports to the desks and convenient bedside charging.
The bath products are custom made for the Venetian and smell very nice. They also offer the amenities one would expect but are all too often forgotten about during COVID-19, including q-tips, shower caps and more.
Compared to some of the domestic disasters we’ve experienced in Las Vegas lately, we were pleasantly surprised to find the suite remarkably clean. They also offered daily cleaning and make-up services. There were enough towels, bath amenities and the room itself was clean.

There is a stocked minibar, but keep in mind that you cannot remove an item without it being charged to your account. Be sure to check out at the front desk if you accidentally touch an item, as you will need to remove it from your account. There is a clear note on the minibar, but it can be easy to accidentally knock over the items in the fridge or tray. They do not offer additional refrigerators or coffee machines in the room.
In general, the rooms are dated, but large and comfortable. Our room was remarkably quiet, despite being a connecting room, and we felt very comfortable throughout our stay.
We found the service at Venetian to be generally professional, courteous and friendly. From the check-in agents at the Prestige Club, to the waiters at the club and the restaurants, we enjoyed our service experiences. Although there was nothing remarkable about the service, it was consistent and polite.
Housekeeping came twice a day, to ensure we always had fresh towels and a clean room to come home to. Housekeeping was polite and professional and generally did a good job. It’s worth mentioning that the Conrad Las Vegas did not offer daily housekeeping, so having twice daily housekeeping was a treat.
Las Vegas Hotels With A Jacuzzi In The Room
The Club lounge waiters were definitely a highlight, constantly running back and forth to make sure guests had full glasses and were comfortable.
Restaurant service was very fast and efficient at Canaletto, one of the early restaurants in Venice. Although we were never blown away by the service at the restaurants, or hotel over all, it was typically efficient and professional.
The Venetian features a wide variety of dining options for everyone, including Italian, Mexican, American and more. Bouchon, a famous Thomas Keller restaurant, is rated as one of the best on the strip. We have eaten in the Venice many times and love sitting in St. Mark’s Square and people watching.
However, there aren’t too many breakfast options on site. For early risers, you will find only a few coffee shops to get your morning fix and you should expect some long queues to get it. The Prestige Club is definitely high value for breakfast fans. Having easy and free access to coffee and continental breakfast is a huge win.
The Palazzo Las Vegas Review: All Suite Elegant Luxury
There are a number of famous restaurants in the Venetian area, such as LAVO, Milos and Tao. You’ll find no shortage of food options right inside the hotel, and should you want to venture out, the Strip is easy and convenient to access. The one missing feature is outdoor seating or dining. Although many of the new hotels on the strip have ample outdoor dining, it is somewhat disappointing to have nowhere to go outside, especially during COVID. That said, the Fashion Show Mall is across the street and has many great dining options.
Overall, the Venetian has everything you’d expect for a Las Vegas hotel: pools, clubs, shows, and plenty of restaurants. The addition of the club level is a nice bonus for the property, offering an elevated experience if they want something a little different.
There are a dozen pools and jacuzzis during the summer and 2 pools open during the winter. The pool decks are expansive with ample seating areas and a bar.
Canyon Ranch Spa sits between the Palazzo property and the Venetian and features their traditional massages and treatments as well as a massive fitness center complete with a rock climbing wall and several rooms of equipment. Of all the Las Vegas hotels we have stayed at, this was the most expansive fitness center with tremendous options for staying fit.
What It’s Like Staying At The Venetian Las Vegas
The shopping center in the Venetian has plenty of shops, restaurants and interesting features to discover. The Venetian is famous for its canals that run through the hotel and shopping center and it is an impressive sight. Guests can take tours of the canal that last about 10 minutes.
Finally, the Prestige Club is a wonderful feature of the hotel that offers guests a relaxed environment to enjoy a cup of coffee, breakfast, drinks or appetizers throughout the day.
Although dated, 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
