The Venetian was absolutely amazing from start to finish. When we arrived we were greeted with charm, courtesy friendliness and efficiency from all the greeting staff and were directed to our suite on the 9th floor. When we got to the room we were delighted with the size etc. however we had 1 issue...
there were 4 adults (we travelled with 2 teenage boys) and the sofa bed in the room was only a single bed. A quick call to the reception area I explained the problem and the receptionist advised that the suite was what was booked by my travel agent... But to my great pleasure she advised that the hotel were going to upgrade our suite to accommodate the 4 adults and would also supply a roll away bed in the new suite at no extra charge. So off we trundled to the 28th floor less than 15 minutes after arriving and we were greeted and treated to a suite that had a floor area larger than most standard houses. The 2 boys were blown away by the size of the room and the luxury of the hotel overall. So score 1 for the hotel for customer service.
After that the stay went without a hitch, we stayed for 4 nights and had a fabulous time, whether lazing by the luxurious and vast pool area, eating in the numerous fine dining restaurants within the hotel (would recommend Cassanova's for breakfast and Zeffirino's and Il Fornaio for dinner) eating at the food court for a quick breakfast or lunchtime snack, shopping in the numerous shops within the hotel, taking a gondola ride or losing the last few cents on the casino floor.
At each turn we were greeted with pleasant and friendly staff, given the vast size of the hotel special mention has to go to the girl in Jonny Rocket's in the food court who remembered our order from the previous day when we went back for breakfast the next.
We did take the indoor gondola ride which is a bit on the expensive side, would probably give this part a miss if we were there again.
The hotel is so vast and full of activities that it would be tempting not to leave the hotel. However we also have to mention Mon Ami Gabi restaurant at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower for a lovely meal on the first evening.
We used Vegas as a base for viewing the Grand canyon and having booked with a charming travel agent called Jeff Lehoskey on the strip we used Maverick tours to fly out and see the Grand Canyon South rim. It was an experience of a lifetime and would recommend the trip even if it is expensive (+$300 per head). The 45 minute trip on a 19 seater Beechcraft was an experience in itself and then the tour of the Grand Canyon park was breathtaking.
Overall Vegas is a place that has something for everyone, it's in your face full throttle 24 hours and has to be experienced to be believed.
If you are heading out there I have no hesitation in recommending the Venetian as the perfect base. It provided a brilliant finish to a very memorable 3 week break in the US.
