The spirit of Venice is alive in The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, complete with canals, gondolas and strolling performers. The hotel offers spacious, beautifully appointed suites, gourmet restaurants and an upscale mall. Sheldon Adelson's breathtaking mega-resort combines the latest technology, truly mammoth scale and the venerable art and culture of the European jewel. The Venetian's take on Venice is a must see.
A detailed, exquisite fresco covers the arched ceiling leading from registration into the casino, promising great things. And those things are delivered in short order - a wealth of shopping experiences in the 500,000 square-foot Grand Canal Shoppes, which, true to its name, has a canal winding through it with gondolas drifting elegantly along its length; a number of five-star restaurants, created by such culinary giants as Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse, Joachim Splichal and Paulo "Zeffirino" Belloni; a version of Madame Tussaud's famous wax museum and much more.
The spacious rooms are wired for the next century, with multiple modem lines and fax machine/computer printer. Needless to say, the rooms are aesthetically stunning as well as technologically sound, with refinements from Italian marble in the bathrooms to a mini-bar.
The Venetian's new Venezia Tower takes luxury rooms to the next level with 700-square-foot suites that boast nine-and-a-half-foot ceilings, 130-square-foot bathrooms finished in Italian marble, three telephones, two 27-inch flat screen TVs, high speed internet access, fax/printer and more.
