The Venetian has been our favorite Las Vegas hotel for the past 4 years. The rooms have been totally remodeled and updated this year.
On our last trip we stayed at the Palazzo. It was a good experience. The rooms are almost an exact replica of the remodeled Venetian rooms.
The difference is that the Venetian has a fabulous lobby, a beautiful casino and the Grand Canal area upstairs. The Palazzo is another nice Las Vegas hotel and casino with nothing really memorable. It's really just another 3000 room addition to the Venetian with a longer walk to the Venetian's amenities. The convention center is located between the two hotels.
