The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas Penthouse Suite Review
Class, class, and more class at this hotel
The Venetian in Las Vegas is all about class. Standing on the site of the old Sands hotel and casino, The Venetian will make you believe you're in Italy. It's huge inside, with room for a massive casino along with a big conference area and a theater where The Blue Man Group performs daily.
The Venetian sits next to its sister property, The Palazzo, which it's connected to on the inside. It outclasses the older hotels located across the street, including Treasure Island and The Mirage. Everything from the smell to the decor in The Venetian feels expensive and luxurious. High-end shopping can be found at the Grand Canal Shoppes and while you're there make sure t check out the gondola ride, which is very romantic although not very private.
Amazing suites come standard
One thing I really like about The Venetian is that all the rooms are suites. That makes it great when you've got a business conference there because you can live it up and it won't look like you spent the company dime on an upgrade.
The standard room at the Venetian is the Venetian Luxury suite. It comes with a king bed, a big screen TV, and a TV in the bathroom standard. They also all come with a DVD player, which is great if you bring your DVDs with you when you travel. The Luxury Suite is 650 square feet, which is large for Vegas standards for the lowest level room a hotel offers. The cost is usually around $199 a night, but expect to pay more for weekends and special nights.
For a little more space and luxury you can try out the Bella suite, which has two queen beds. It's only a little more than the luxury suite. For a real upgrade go with the Rialto, which has a whopping 1100 square feet of room. If you want everything the Venetian has to offer, go with the Penthouse, which is 2900 square feet of uber-luxury. If you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it. The Penthouse is perfect for a dream honeymoon.
For entertainment at the Venetian, you've got the resident shows: The Blue Man Group, Jersey Boys, and Phantom. The Venetian also books a-list acts like David Spade regularly. For nightlife, Tao and V Bar are among the hottest spots in Las Vegas.
Overall, The Venetian is great if you want to spoil yourself. If you're just coming to Las Vegas to gamble, save your money and stay somewhere else. If you're looking to club and party in your room, you can go wrong with The Venetian or Palazzo.
