When deciding which hotel to stay in Macau, my wife and I went through the various pictures and reviews. The pictures of The Venetian did not look that great, but I realized why now that I've been there... and it is because they used yellow in their decor, and warm lighting, and that makes everything look yellow... so, don't let the pictures discourage you from staying here. The rooms are great! Big! There is a huge bathroom with a room for the toilet bowl itself. The full range of amenities are provided. There is the bedroom area, and then a whole living room. There is one TV in the bedroom, and one more in the living room. There is also a multi-function printer/fax/copy machine in the room.
In terms of the sleep quality, I found the pillows way to soft for me, but other than that, the rooms were great!
The one thing I'd hope that the hotel could provide as complementary would be the wifi. Despite paying for the room, you still have to pay for the wifi usage. However, Galaxy hotel even has free 20-minutes wifi for the public to use.
To move from hotel to hotel, or from the hotel to the airport or ferry terminals, you can simply hop on to one of the hotel shuttle buses. Different hotels provide different ranges of shuttle buses. It is worth going next door to Galaxy to have a look at where their buses go.
The other area I did not like would be the shopping area and the casino areas being smoky. Despite having non-smoking signs and that you could be fined MOP$600 if caught smoking, no one was there to enforce that. I could not use the camera in the casino area, but if I could, I would have taken lots of pictures of people smoking in non-smoking areas. The smell of smoke in the Great Hall area (center of the hotel) is very strong. The smell dissipates as you move outwards into the shopping areas.
The Venetian is like a city on its own. I did some hotel hopping and found that The Venetian had the most contained within its premises. It would be good if The Venetian has a supermarket within its premises.
