Connections and charm
Connected to Sands Expo and Convention Center via walkway, the 5-star Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino is an all-suite gem on The Strip. The 5-acre pool deck and Balinese-style TAO Beach, a fave of the jet set, take guests from this desert city to a water-focused paradise.
The Shoppes at the Palazzo feature luxury brands like Michael Kors and Fendi. If you're looking to win your spending money, state-of-the-art video poker and a 112,000-square-foot poker room await in the hotel's casino. And romantics adore the gondola rides on the Grand Canal.
With 22 casual and 16 fine dining restaurants to choose from, the Venetian's guests enjoy everything from Italian to Japanese to American. Gourmet dining options include Thomas Keller's Bouchon and Canaletto, but guests also appreciate the reasonably priced Grand Lux Café.
At this all-suite resort, nothing is standard, including the suites themselves. Sunken living rooms provide comfort with a sofa and flat-screen TVs. Egyptian cotton linens grace the pillowtop beds, and bathrooms cater to indulgence with Roman tubs and separate showers.
