I’m a frequent visitor to Las Vegas and stayed at the Venetian more than I can count. No, I’m not a high roller, or a gambler even. I just go to Vegas to shop, eat, get spa treatments, and enjoy a weekend away from life. I’ve stayed at the Venetian on weekends, and on weekdays for conferences. So I think my experiences are quite accurate.
Location: You can not fault the location. There are two places that’s preferred in Sin City. The first is City Center (Aria, Vdara, Cosmopolitan), and the second is in the middle of the strip (Venetian, Palazzo, Wynn, Encore). The shopping is very close. There is a mall across from Wynn/Encore, and there are many high end shops in the Palazzo/Venetian and next door at Wynn/Encore. The pool parties and night clubs are nearby also, if you’re into that sort of thing. Bouchon is in the Venezia tower, which deserves a review on its own. I have to say, food was good, service was beyond atrocious!
Room: the room is quite large. It’s a very good usage of space, probably one of the larger base rooms on the strip.
Service; One helpful tip from the concierge is “take paradise blvd down” if you’re going to the airport. The taxis in Las Vegas are notorious for ripping off customers. Avoid the freeway or you’ll be paying over $30 for a one way cab ride. The overall service is Las Vegas is pretty bad. I don’t blame them. They have to deal with rude drunkards all the time.
Why do I keep on returning to the Venetian if my experiences has been lackluster? Elite status and location. That’s it.
