I must say at the beginning...I am NOT a fan of Las Vegas. I do not like to gamble. I dislike the smell of smoke. I am not a fan of glitz. I have managed to avoid a trip to Las Vegas for over 10 years. My son and his girlfriend REALLY wanted to show us Vegas. And, since I was undergoing chemo when this daughter turned 21...I grudgingly said ok.
We arrived on a Friday night. The place was teeming with girls running..be they the bridal party or the 21st birthday kind. The boys were drinking. Having fun yet? The front desk was kind of nasty. We went to our suite. While I may not be a fan of glitz and gold the room itself was really nice. The bathroom was REALLY nice with a separate stall shower. It was nice to have the space. And it was clean.
Housekeeping was so nice. They always said hello, good morning...and do you need anything?
We did go to the restaurants: First night Tao (very late). We went to Tao in NYC. This was good. (I might mention that when my youngest went with her sorority sisters to Vegas they were comped, with bottle service, at every club. Somehow parental units aren't invited in....).
Delmonico was excellent.
Gambling: Husband, son and daughter did blackjack and the sports betting. When daughter went to bet on one team...Seattle (?) the guy gave her the look...When she won the bet the guy gave her a smile. I did gamble, lost nine dollars.
I'm not in a rush to go back to Vegas. IF we go back we probably would stay at someplace quieter. But the Venetian was a nice welcome back to Vegas. And younger would probably love it.
