Whether you’re traveling to Las Vegas for a trade convention, fabulous shows, shopping, gambling, or just to have fun, you want to be sure to get a good deal on a nice place to stay. With nearly forty hotels on the Las Vegas Strip alone, choosing one that will meet your expectations while staying within your budget can be quite a gamble. If you’re looking for a luxury experience and you’re not afraid to pay for it, The Venetian Hotel is probably the best bet. This article gives details about The Venetian Hotel and shows how it stacks up against a few of the other players.  

What Is The Venetian Hotel?

Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, The Venetian Hotel features all-suite accommodations, exquisite restaurants, world-class entertainment, and shopping. The Venetian Hotel is opulent and lavish, decked out in gold. The ambiance is definitely sumptuous and expensive, catering to more upscale travelers, large groups, and business conventions. It features wide open walkways, sculptures, and art with an Italian and Venetian theme. The Venetian also has three separate shopping venues, Grand Canal Shoppes, Resort Shops, and The Atrium Shops. There is an authentic Venetian gondola ride on the Grand Canal available where you float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies, and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal.
