We stayed at the Venetian in March for our 35th Wedding Anniversary.
This hotel is very impressive, it is busy at all time during the day and night.
We didn't know what to expect when we arrived, this hotel was always on our bucket list to stay at and for no other reason than we wanted to stay there, I did not look at any reviews before we left. Family had stayed there a couple of years prior to our visit but again it was somewhere we wanted to go.
We hired a car for our trip, and as we arrived at the hotel we used valet parking, more to get our bearings and after the first day we parked the car ourselves. It was see less the journey from the airport, when we arrived we went to reception, when they knew it was our WA they upgraded us to a strip view. It was fantastic. We went to our room and it was impressive. All rooms are suites and they are on a split level or our was. You walked into the room and through a short hallway which had the bathroom and toilet off it. Then you saw the massive king size bed, and two steps down to the seating area, and the view of the strip.
There were 3 televisions, one in the bathroom, the sleeping area and the seating area, but you don't really have time to watch any if them.u
The room is cleaned daily to a very high standard, no complaints there. If you want a good night sleep it might be hard to come by, this is a casino and there are comings and goings at all times of the day or night. Wasn't a problem for us it's part of the holiday.
I emailed the hotel prior to arriving to ask what facilities were in the room, ie hair dryer (yes), fridge (no) but you can have one for $25 a day ( that is correct) unless its for medication, tea and coffee making facilities (no). We took our own kettle and cups and tea bags. We travel extensively in the US and so off we went to Walmart and got ourselves a polystyrene cool box for a few dollars, milk, bit of cheese, ham, bread, etc and filled the cool box and when we got back to the hotel filled it with ice from the ice machine. Perfect.
There are plenty places to eat in the hotel, you can go and get yourself coffee, croissants etc and take it back to your room, you don't need to use room service. The restaurants are brilliant, the food is good and there is plenty off it.
Be aware you also pay a resort fee of $20 a day plus tax, this is so you can have wi fi in your room. There is a mini bar in the room but if you don't use it make sure you don't go in and touch anything as you will be charged for it, it's all done electronically, even if you put it back.
Negative points, only one that I can think off, there are people trying to sell you stuff and as soon as you walk in through the doors they pounce on you.
LasVegas is not a children's destination, but there were toddlers there, there is nothing for them to do, unless you want to stay at a pool all day.
There is a shopping area in the hotel and it's absolutely fantastic, there are gondolas, they have something going on throughout the day.
This hotel is in a fantastic location and I would go back and stay again.
