Description

Location

Address: 3355 S Las Vegas Blvd

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas is probably gambling, and the second might be the outrageously gaudy décor of its world-famous casinos. If you’re looking for a casino that’s more Bellagio than Circus Circus, your next trip should include a stay at The Venetian Las Vegas. Let’s look at this lux 5-star hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

Location & First Impressions

The Venetian sits on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip next to the outrageously unaffordable Wynn Las Vegas and across the street from the usually affordable Mirage. Like other 5-star hotels on The Strip, the Venetian has its casinos, gym, restaurants, and attractions, so you can check in and stay on site for your entire Las Vegas stay or head out for a walk to the other casinos.

The Check-In Experience

Checking in at The Venetian is pretty straightforward. Like most Strip hotels, you’ll stand in a giant line in a vast room, waiting for your chance at one of the check-in desks.

If you’re internet savvy, try the online check-in at venetianlasvegas.com/checkin and pick up your key when you arrive from the front desk. If the line is enormous, online check-in makes things much more manageable.

Room Overview

The Venetian advertises all of its rooms as suites, but they’re not all technically suites. Most are exceptionally large rectangular rooms with a dedicated sleeping area and a living space.

The rooms are pretty huge, though, which is handy if you’re traveling with friends and want the 5-star experience without the 5-star price. There are one-bedroom suites, too, which are higher in price, and the view you get also impacts your room’s cost.

Amenities and Facilities

The Venetian has all the amenities you’d expect in a 5-start hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, including a fitness room, casinos, a spa, outdoor swimming pools, a bevy of restaurants, and lots of shopping. One of the hotel’s unique amenities is its indoor river and gondola rides, which are meant to mimic the boat rides you might take in Venice, Italy.

Dining and Cuisine

The Venetian offers several restaurants, from fancy sit-downs to run-of-the-mill establishments catering to casually dressed casino goers (we’re looking at you, the guy in cargo shorts and a Hawaiian shirt).

The best restaurant at The Venetian is Black Tap, a burger place with THE BEST milkshakes. There is almost always a line. TAO Asian Bistro is a solid runner-up for delicious food, and Delmonico Steakhouse is the ideal destination when you want to put a big dent in your wallet.

Unique Selling Points

The Venetian’s indoor river and the gondola ride are probably its most notable features, but the style of the hotel is also something you’ll enjoy if you’re looking for true Las Vegas excess.

The décor of The Venetian’s rooms is super luxurious and polar opposite of many modern hotels’ minimalistic style. From the remote-control curtains to the larger-than-average furniture (the beds seem huge), the hotel does a fantastic job of giving you luxury with just the right amount of gaudiness.

Surrounding Area

The Venetian is directly on The Strip, which makes it uber convenient for casino hopping, and it’s easy to take a stroll south to reach The Bellagio, Caesar’s Palace, Paris Las Vegas, as well as all the other upstart casinos that have squeezed into the strip in the last few decades. Reaching south-side casinos like the MGM Grand, Luxor, and Mandalay Bay is a decent walk.

Value for Money

The Venetian can get pretty pricey, especially if you don’t take the time to find a deal or book at the last minute. Expect to pay upwards of $500 a night when you include the added resort fee (don’t forget that all Las Vegas resorts tack on a $50/night resort fee that doesn’t always appear on the room rate!).

Rates can go through the roof during the holidays, but you can also score discounts down to about $300 if you time your stay right (on a weeknight, for example).

Final Thoughts: Is The Venetian Las Vegas Worth the Price?

The Venetian isn’t the cheapest way to visit Las Vegas, but it’s not the most expensive either. The casino’s gaming quality is somewhere in the middle.

Still, the real draw of this hotel is the amazing décor of its hotel rooms with the plush beds, superior air conditioning, and the massive variety of restaurants to keep you sated between trips to the casino.

The Venetian is a fun casino hotel in Las Vegas that’s definitely worth a stay and might keep you coming back for future visits if you can afford it (famous last words: throw $100 on black!).
