We arrived at Macao via the Cotai Water Jet Ferry from Hong Kong Island around 4pm. Passing through Macao customs did not take long and the best part was a Venetian shuttle bus was already staged upon our exist from the ferry terminal. Once we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the front door staff. Check-in was a breeze, no line at all. The hotel is very large and the headache was walking through a hall of stores, the casino area and then finally seeing signs pointing toward the direction of our tower just to get to the elevator to our room. Tuck your camera away or snap the cap on the lens. Security personnel standing at the entrance to the casino will remind you of the rules. The Venetian is located on the Cotai Strip and transportation is needed to get to the old town/strip. We opted to use the hotel's free shuttle service which connection to the old town/strip is via the Galaxy Hotel shuttle and drop off at the StarWorld. It would have been more convenient if the hotel provided direct shuttle service to those areas.
Our first evening we ate at the hotel's Imperial House Dim Sum, which food was fairly average. Lots of boutique and high end stores are located in the Shoppes of Venetian. The hotel has a skywalk connecting to the Four Season with additional shops and restaurants. It's also in close proximity to the Hard Rock Cafe and City of Dreams.
I was a little apprehensive to book this hotel after reading other reviews about the strong cigarette odor that apparently permeate through the rooms. Glad to say our room did not have that issue. Though we did stay on the 37th floor. Rooms are large, bathroom spacious. Okay view of the Cotai Strip. There was a cute video show on the outside of the hotel. One of the highlighted service of the hotel is the airline check in through reservations made with Cotai Water Jet ferry from Macau direct to Hong Kong International Airport. This hotel is huge, be prepared to meander through a maze like floor plan.
