On our first visit to Macau everyone of my friends who had been there earlier recommended to stay at the Venetian. So thats what I did. I transferred by ferry and the hotel bus is always available outside which takes you straight to The Venetian at no extra cost and no prior booking is required for it too. At the reception there were around 7 receptionists helping guests check in such was the rush. We traveled close to the Chinese New Year. Had to wait for around 10 minutes to check in which was quite disappointing. Wanted to get some currency converted so asked the reception lady and she happily told me that I may get a better rate at the bank that was situated inside the hotel than with her. I was very pleased with that and did so. Most of the hotels will never recommend such a thing.
Well one really needs a map to be able to make sure that you've been to every part of the hotel, it is actually that big. We stayed for 2 nights and am certain I've missed a lot. Part of that blame also goes to the casino.:D The room to my surprise was large..We stayed at the CotaiSuite and it was delightful. I expected designer toiletries given the status of the hotel but they were of a "Plaza" brand. I do not know if its a luxury Chinese brand or a local. Nevertheless the room was spacious. It was divided in 2 parts. Upper part had a King bed with TV in front and the lower part was the seating area with sofa-bed which was nice and another TV in front of it. It was very clean and the thing I liked the most was that for such a huge hotel the room service and cleanups were very prompt.
The hotel offers numerous restaurants. We tried a few but being Vegetarians we could not find a lot of items on the menu of these restros. Ate my lunches at the hotel food court while shopping which was good.
On my next visit I think I'll skip this hotel and try what the other hotels have to offer in Macau.
But for first time visitors I'll say this...Definitely stay here..Theres no other place you'd rather be..whether you have shopping, dining, gambling or watching shows on your mind.
