Let’s start with the service–from the moment we checked in, we were so impressed by how friendly & helpful the desk clerk was, we remembered her name–so if you get Emily at check-in, you’re off to a great start. Every staff member had a friendly smile throughout our stay and somehow even the check-out was made memorable by the super-efficient & friendly Linda.
On to the hotel itself–let’s list all the great details:
– The room (I think it was called a King Suite) was spectacular–tons of space, a really nice sitting area with 2 chairs & a sofa, a small dining table with 3 chairs and a desk. Very comfortable King bed, huge luxurious bathroom and high quality feel everywhere. We also had a nice view of the pool area below.
– The pool deck is excellent–one huge main pool plus a smaller shallow pool and you also seem to have access to the Palazzo pool side as well, although we never went over there. It’s really nicely oriented for sun all day and there are tons of lounges, so even when it looked croweded we were always able to find a spot. Service on the deck was really attentive if you wanted it but unobtrusive if you didn’t. We discovered early on that they were totally fine with bringing drinks (or even food) with us onto the deck–so nice to grab a coffee/tea and bring it with you rather than being forced to order on the deck.
– The Grand Canal mall is very nice–great to stroll through, a good mix of shop types–lots of high-end but some nice mid-range options too. The food court is readily accessible to the room areas so it’s really nice not to have to walk through the casino to go grab a bite.
– Parking is fantastic–best we’ve experienced at any of these big resorts, with easily the shortest walk from the car to the room elevators (vs. places like Caesar’s Palace or the Mirage where the walk is a good 10 minutes from garage to room – here at the Venetian, it was about 4 minutes).
– Location on the strip is great–it’s walking distance to just about everything.
