My wife and I just returned from a stay at the Venetian. We were
married in Vegas in July (hot, hot!), but didn't truly get a honeymoon,
as attending to 20 family members and friends took so much time. We
also had our children with us, so it wasn't as much romantic as it was
practical in July.
This time around, we wanted to pamper ourselves, so we decided on the Venetian. I had seen many reviews, good and bad, on this site, but felt the majority were favorable, so we booked.
I found the room to be large, comfortable, and well designed.
Everything was quite clean, though some things were a bit worn, as
previous reviews have noted. Check-in was a breeze, and the staff was,
through-out our stay, helpful, not stuffy at all. We partied pretty
hard during our stay, so we often left the room in the afternoon. Our
room was always clean when we returned, even when we left as late as 5
The room-service was definitely a treat. Jeff, the man who brought us our food, was friendly, intuitively knowing we didn't want a formal presentation of the food. He layed out our food elegantly, and bantered with us as he worked. His discreet touch and insights into Vegas hotspots were appreciated.
We felt that the room needed new carpet, and could use more outlets for various plug-ins. The stocked refrigerator was completely full of expensive items (too expensive, don't touch them unless you are in real need, they are bar-coded, so moving them will cause your room to be charged), so we requested another refrigerator for drinks and the like (it was free of charge). Every request we made was filled promptly, including for a coffee pot, which is not standard in the room. I believe we were charged about $18.00 for the coffee pot for 4 days. I understand the hotels are all about revenue generation, but this seems like a tacky thing to me.
My wife loved the vanity and chair to apply make-up, and loved the separate toilet, so two people could get ready at the same time. She does feel the lighting in the bathroom was inadequate for applying make-up unless sitting at the vanity.
We dined Valentine's evening at Pinot Brasserie. WOW! AN amazing dinner, truly fine dining with excellent service and fabulous food. The waitress suggested a wine that turned out to be the best I have ever tasted. The cheesecake likewise was the best I have had. I highly recommend Pinot.
All in all, I highly recommend the Venetian. If you are going to Vegas to enjoy yourself, would like a taste of pampering, and are not looking for the flaws in everything but simply an experience to share with a loved one, I am certain you will enjoy the Venetian. We liked it so much that we extended our stay two times!
