Venezia Luxury Suite at The Venetian - The VegasTripping Review 2007

Venezia Luxury Suite Bed

The Bedroom Area

The bedroom area of a Venezia Luxury Suite is divided into two areas, the "bed area" and the "living room area." The lighting throughout is extremely low and yellow. Taking photos with a flash results in extremely harsh photos, so, in the interest of accuracy, we opted to go au natural - as a result, there is a fuzziness to the following pics - our apologies.

/images/feature Venezia NightstandThe Venezia Luxury bedroom features three pillows (placed off-center for a reason?) a folded comforter (ugly) and an interestingly back-lit headboard/canopy affair. The bed was quite comfortable and comparable to any of the newer rooms in Vegas. We both slept great.

Two night stands abutted the bed, one featuring a phone/writing pad and the other the aforementioned digital clock. A utility pillow was located in the closet. VegasTripper Cherrioh sent us photos of the Venezia suite he stayed at a few weeks after our visit. His bed featured two pillow tubes placed on the footstool at the end of the two beds in the room. Unseen to the right is a closet that featured a Venetian bathrobe (stained), a dry cleaning bag and a luggage stand.

Venezia Luxury Suite TV Facing the bed was a small armoire that, when opened, revealed a tiny TV, a safe and a coupla drawers. To the right of the TV armoire was a confusing array of light switches that when flipped, switched on lights you wouldn't expect. You'd think that the left switch would turn on the light to the left (hallway), the center switch the light directly overhead and the right switch the light in the sunken living room to the right. Not here buddy. Obviously this room was designed by people who don't actually think about how things get used.

Another example of this bad design is the location of the TV set. When lying on the bed, the TV is barely visible through any foot larger than size 8 mens. Wow. Bad. The screen quality is similar to something you might find at Harrah's, but probably a couple of inches smaller. Not that I watch any TV in Vegas, but for a higher end room, this is quite lame and an extremely bad design. On top of the TV armoire, there is an ice bucket, corkscrew and two types of drinking/boozing glasses. Nice. Additionally, standing in front of the pseudo Italian artwork is a hardbound room service menu. The pages were rumpled and quite worn. We ordered room service on our first morning there and, unexpectedly, the food was exceptional.

This is a view of the bed from the opposite direction standing on the stairs into the sunken living room. The door to the closet is on the right. The Venezia Luxury Suite also offers turn down service in the evening. They left a small chocolate bar but Miss Monkay ate it before I had a chance to take a photo. Note the stains on the foot stool at the end of the bed.

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.
