Venetian Resort Hotel Casino 2010

At 650 square feet, the standard rooms at the Venetian are among the largest on the Strip — bested only by the Encore and Palazzo and a handful of others. Even the base-level rooms contain floor-to-ceiling windows, a king-size pillow-top bed dressed in Egyptian cotton sheets, and a bedroom that is partially separated from the sunken living room. A serene getaway from the property’s hustle and bustle is its 10th-floor pool deck (open until 10:30 p.m.), which features additional pools, several small Jacuzzis, rose bushes, and the French patisserie Bouchon Bakery. To top it off, the hotel shares the world-famous Canyon Ranch Spa with the neighboring Palazzo hotel. Plus, the property is divided into two towers — the 4,027-room Venetian, and the 1,013-room Venezia, built in 2003 as a more exclusive retreat for high-rolling gamblers.

The Venetian is the kind of place people either love or can’t stand. It’s got all the trappings of a Las Vegas megaresort — interactive elements, plenty of retail therapy, two towering guest room buildings, and a glam pool deck. There’s a “canal” where you can take a gondola ride, and a replica of the famous Rialto Bridge. (Unlike the one in Venice, the Venetian’s has a moving escalator floor, and leads to the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and a Sephora cosmetics store.)

At approximately 650 square feet, the standard rooms at the Venetian are among the largest on the Strip (though the rooms at its sister property, the Palazzo, are even larger). Each room contains a bedroom separated by a metal fence from the sunken living room. Combined, there’s enough space to have the entire gondolier crew over for late night martinis. Or, a family or group of friends can take advantage of the L-shaped sofa which opens up to a full-size bed. The standard rooms include three flat-screen TVs: a 32-incher in the living room, another 32-incher in the bedroom, and a 17-incher in the bathroom. The cable package includes about 40 channels (but no HBO) and films on-demand. The desk includes a private workstation with a personal fax/printer/copier and a dual-line telephone. High-speed, in-room Wi-Fi is available for $9.95 per day.At 130 square feet, the bathrooms are larger than some New York City hotel rooms and feature deep soaking tubs and twin sink basins, plenty of towels, and Agraria San Francisco bath products. If all that space and luxury doesn’t quite cut it, further upgrades are available. The Piazza suite, for example, weighs in at 1,400 square feet, has one larger TV, a jetted bathtub, and a separate powder room.
