Venezia Luxury Suite at The Venetian - The VegasTripping Review 2007

Over the desert and down the strip to Grandmother's House We Go

Posted by Chuckmonster

Venezia Tower Luxury Suite Review - The Toilet Speaking of cans... adjacent to the vanity area was a door that opened to reveal the kings throne. One might suspect that the Venizia Luxury Suite might have a luxury john, but alas, its a standard issue job that comes with an extra roll of TP and an ubiquitous "Shat-phone" mounted at arms length.

Friendly VT reminder - for obvious reasons, you should never hold the toilet phone up to your face without giving it a through cleaning - if ever.

The extra roll of TP featured a teeny weeny "V" sticker that fastened its "V" shaped folds down as it laid in wait. I nearly choked with laughter when this roll - complete with sticker - showed up on the ringer at home a few days after returning from the trip - way to go Miss Monkay. Back to the john... unlike Wynn and some of the other higher end joints we've had the pleasure to stay at, the Venetian's johns are low riders, which kinda suck if you're a tall guy like me. Nobody likes extended solo missions with their knees up their ears. The actual john flushed with medium gusto, and it passed the post-buffet high-density evacuation session without any any clogging issues.


Venezia Luxury Suite Sink Fixtures


The sink tops were brown marble and featured gold plated hardware and sunken sink bowls. The water pressure was steady but not blasting. Full force stream didn't splash onto the mirror. There were ample plugs for electronic devices and an array of not-so-soft hand towels at the ready.


Venezia Luxury Suite - June Jacobs Spa Collection Shampoos


The bathroom toiletries included an array of June Jacobs Spa Collection soaps, shampoos, face cremes, shower caps, conditioner and moisturizing cream. The flavor of the array (both here and in the shower) was "Green Tea and Cucumber" - which sounds more like something you'd order at a one of those juicer shops than something you'd want to wash your steak with.

Re: The blintzes - they gave you too much. 5 were more than I could handle - even for a pig like me.

looks like it was a serving to be shared with you and two other paid "friends" you find in your bed the next morning. What I'm trying to say is it looks like a big damn pile of blintzes.

Checked out of " The Ve-new-sian" after one nite 3 years ago after being told I'd have to pay for all three nites anyway. I got to the g.m of the hotel and he called The Mirage for a room for me. (I had lots of problems besides hating the room-like a 2 hour check-in as an invited guest-shouldn't have tipped the new receptionist that $20 to up grade-it unnerved her and she got caught trying to upgrade me-another story) Stay at The Wynn for that kinda money. I just finished a long 8 day b-day stay in the salon suite-wow. But damn those Venusians-their new tower being built now shadows the sun off the Wynn pool probaly 1 hour or so sooner than we're ready to finish our fun in the sun. How is Wynn going to retaliate? Maybe buy his own golden sun for the rest of our sunning day? Stay away from The Venian, New York/ New york is always better if you have to make a better than lateral move.

Well, it's obvious this is a hotel for conventioneers and businesspeople, not as much trippers or romantic getaways despite the stodgy decorations.

Steve W is a lot like Steve J when it comes to the Reality Distortion Machine, and I do think you may have bought into it just a teensy bit. Turkish towels, alright, but I'll be damned if I could feel a difference. Maybe it's a personal thing because no matter where I stay I never feel as comfortable about the towels as I do with my regular ones back home.

@minvegas -

My reality distortion machine is between my ears. For those who don't know - Steve J minvegas is referring to is Apple CEO Steve Jobs. VT has proven again and again that we are more than willing, even eager, to call bullshit on anyone - Steve Wynn included. VT was founded on the premise that we don't buy corporate marketing b.s. and call em as we see em. For the dough - the Venetian Venezia Luxury Suite isn't that great.

Regarding the specifics of towels - we "obtained" one towel each from Wynn and Venetian and did a touch and comparison test while writing this story (true). Wynn's towels are much better quality and more comfortable to the touch, hands down (pun intended).

ironically i stayed at the venetian when i was a crony of steve j, for an NAB convention back in the day (2002 i think). it was much nicer then, though pretty much identical to the suites now, only bigger. and cleaner. i think the clean/new thing has a lot to do with the experience. a bunch of us stayed recently for a bachelor party (apparently right next to where chuckmonster and missmonkay stayed). we had no problems with the place, for the rates we got. outside of a little poker though, we spent much of the time at wynn.
i had my doubts too about the wynn and the steve w reality distorion field, but i think that place really delivers, and could see where praise is coming from. it's all the nice things i liked about bellaggio, but slightly more well thought out (the shoe shine with a dedicated entrance instead of the bathroom entrance) and really brimming with little touches... parasol down is a fantastic bar (brilliant whisky selection- thank you!!), the curved escalators to get there are a nice touch, the dealers really are friendly, and the atmosphere/vibe of the place in general is right on. can't speak for the rooms, cause i haven't stayed, but the rest of it was pretty spot on.
i think the collective steve w/j reality distortion is nothing in the face of their very clear and present attention to details.

this is the worst review I have ever read!! Are you sure you stayed in the Venezia tower?? I guess you just don't get it. I have stayed at Wynn(uglyiest mess of a luxury hotel I've ever seen) and Bellagio(very nice)...but dollar for dollar, Venezia is the best deal in town. I guess I should expect this from someone who thinks it's complicated to get to your Venezia room. VERY OFFENDED!!!

@david1 it should be noted that many of the rooms at the Venetian (including Venezia) have undergone renovations since this review was posted so your experiences may very well have been different. We still stand by this review of the Venezia tower circa 2007.
