The Hotel

One of the latest resorts in Las Vegas is the splendid Venetian. The resort, built on the same plot that once had the Sands (imploded on November 26th, 1996), has tried (with success) to replicate one of the world's most romantic cities, Venice. Therefore, various famous Venetian landmarks have been built to scale - The Doge's Palace, Campanile Tower, the Rialto Bridge, The Ca D'Oro (The Golden Palace), the Bridge of Sighs, the Contarini Palace and St. Mark's Square, Venice's religious, political and social heart. As Venice is famous for it's gondola's, they haven't been left out either. With currently 3,036 suites, the resort is one of the largest in Las Vegas, but if the planned second phase will be ready, The Venetian will have over 6,000 suites, and will be the largest resort. Unless someone builds something bigger in the mean time - you never know, and plans for the second phase aren't final yet. Add to that the average size of each suite (at least 700 square feet - an official Guiness World Record!), the Venetian is a class on its own. To convince you even further: each suite has a marble foyer entrance, seperated bedroom and living room, a 27" color television, an in-room safe, said to be large enough to hold a laptop computer (and with these laptops ever getting smaller, maybe even 2) a minibar, a coffeetable, a writing desk and much much more. Rest assured, this comes at a price; even if The Venetian wants you to believe that 'the price of a suite will be determined by market conditions and will be comparable to the average hotel room rate at other premiere strip properties'. Still, expect roomrates well over $100 on weekdays if you book through HotelDiscounts!com. Prices are, as always, subject to change. If you can afford it and like luxury, this is something not to miss. back

The Casino

Marble floors, frescos, plush furnishings, about 120 table games (blackjack, craps, roulette (single zero roulette available!), Pai Gow, Pai Gow poker, Caribbean Stud Poker nad Let it Ride), some 2,500 slotmachines, a keno lounge and a sportsbook. That about sums up the gaming possibilities at The Venetian. For all of you high rollers: there is also a high limit salon with baccarat and table games.back

For decades, Las Vegas has been the number one gaming and convention resort, it still is the Entertainment Capital of the World, and now it's on the move to become the world's number one resort for fine dining. With all the new resorts being built, many great (and not so great, let's face it) restaurants are added. Top chefs open their latest outlet in Las Vegas to stun people with culinairy art and to tickle the tastebuds with exquisite blends of tastes and fragrances. (We admit, we like food.) Back to reality: The Venetian has 13 restaurants:
  • Canaletto
    Food and wine from the Venetto region of Italy. Featuring seafood, beef, game and poultry. The wines on the wine list are the lesser-known wines of Northern Italy.
  • Canyon Ranch Café
    For breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also offers vegetarian dishes and a fresh-fruit bar.
  • Delmonico's Steakhouse
    (By Emeril Lagasse)
    Named after the New Orleans' Delmonico Restaurant & Bar, this restaurant offers dinner and lunch in the restaurant. The bar has a select menu. Expect meat with a Southeastern touch.
  • The Grand Lux Café
    This is one for those of you who like things more casual. With a menu featuring over 150 items, including breakfast, steaks, seafood, burgers, chicken and desserts. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Lutèce
    (By Eberhard Müller)
    French cuisine, similar to Lutèce in New York. Haute French cuisine, this restaurant also has its own wine cellar and sommelier. Open for lunch and dinner
  • Pinot Brasserie
    (by Joachim Splichal)
    Celebrity chef and author of Los Angeles fame has landed at The Venetian to bring you French-Californian cuisine offering amongst other things steak, pasta and seafood. Also has an oysterbar. Open for lunch and dinner, the setting is casual authentic French bistro, with decor items imported from France. Outside dining also available (though this depends on the weather).
  • Royal Star
    (By Kevin Wu)
    Together with Hong Kong chefs Lai Lam and Chiu Kee Yung, he established the Californian Royal Star Seafood Restaurant. Combined with Therese Lin, a respected arbiter of Chinese cooking, they have created a menu based on the traditional Chinese dishes with adaptations to please those with both Western and Eastern tastes. Open from 9am till midnight, the Royal Star offers Asian style seafood, meat, poultry and vegetarian dishes and is set in a simple design. Wood accents, silver-leafed ceiling and authentic Chinese artefacts are all part of the decor.
  • Star Canyon
    (By Stephan Pyles)
    Quality food from the Lone Star State with a touch from the French cuisine. Said to serve highly seasoned ranchhouse portions, some of the feature dishes are Bone-in Ribeye with Pinto Bean-Wild mushroom ragout and Red Chili Onion Rings. As Stephan Pyles is also an author and host of the PBS series 'New Tastes from Texas', you can also purchase his cookbooks, Star Canyon china, t-shirts and spices (to name a few). Open for lunch from 11.30am to 2.30pm daily.
  • Taqueria Canonita
    Another idea from the mind of Stephan Pyles, and run by his sister Alena Pyles. This Mexican themed restaurant has all of the ingredients from the Mexican kitchen we've all come to love (or hate): tacos, tamales, tostados, goditas and rellenos. Central part of the restaurant is the exhibition kitchen. Open from 11am to 11pm, Sunday through Thursday, untill midnight Friday and Saturday.
  • Valentino and P.S. Italian Grill
    (By Piero Selvaggio)
    The famous Los Angeles restaurant 'Valentino' can now be found at The Venetian as well. Here you can find contemporary Italian food but still loyal to Italian culinairy tradition. Menu is expected to change with the seasons, so we can't give you any definitive menu items. We would like to point out to you that you can see a selection of 24,000 (!) wines from all around the world. See if you can find something from your part of the world!
    The Italian Grill is actually at the front of Valentino and serves simpler and lighterstyled food, with a speciality in grilled pizza. Open from 11am to 3pm and 5pm to 11pm, daily.
  • WB Stage 16
    Dine in one of Warner Bros. Productions' most famous sets: Gold Diggers, Casablanca, Ocean Eleven and Batman. The restaurant offers Mediterranean, Asian, European and creative American dishes. There is a full bar service and an extensive wine list. The restaurant includes retail space where you can purchase various WB items. Open from 11am to 1pm daily.
  • Zeffirino
    Focused on 'seafood with an Italian flair', the menu includes such items as filet of sole piccola, lobster tail, fresh & grilled fish, salads and pastas. With sophisted and elegant decorations, including a handcrafted Italian bar.
  • Postrio
    (By Wolfgang Puck)
    Another one of Wolfgang Puck's creations (the Wolfgang Puck Café can be found at the MGM Grand). Enjoy American cuisine with Mediterranean and Asian accents. The menu changes daily and includes grilled lamb chops, haricot vert and walnut toast, Chinese style duck with mango sauce and crispy fried scallions. Wolfgang Puck cookbooks, gift certificates and memorabilia are available.

    Besides sleeping, gaming and eating, The Venetian also offers entertainment. We already mentioned the gondola rides. Complete with serenading gondeliers, you can take a meandering ride through the Grand Canal Shoppes. When Phase II of the Venetian is complete, the ride should be 1,200 linear feet.
    For some more 'serious' entertainment, the Venetian also has its own nightclub, C2K. Featuring 1,400 seats, a state-of-the-art sound and light system, private skyboxes, C2K also has a complete television production studio. After midnight, C2K turns into a dance club.
    The Venetian is home to the first Madame Tussaud's in the US (the second one will be in New York). MT's famous wax figures can already be seen in London, Amsterdam and Australia. In four themed areas (The Big Night, Sports Arena, Rock and Pop, Las Vegas Legends) you can see, amongst others, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Springer, Evander Holyfield, Babe Ruth, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Tom Jones and Marilyn Monroe. The fifth area (called Finale) is a multi media theatrical tribute to Las Vegas, including footage of the old Las Vegas and animatronic statues. Madame Tussaud's is open every day from 10am to 10pm.
    Last on the list of Entertainment at The Venetian is the Theaters of Sensation, featuring similator rides.back


    In line with all the other new Las Vegas resorts, The Venetian has it's own shopping mall, called The Grand Canal Shoppes. Numerous boutiques and stores can be found in this indoors, open-air styled mall. You can walk nearly a quarter of a mile , with St. Mark's being the vast centerpiece. With it's 70 feet high everchanging ceiling, it features cafés, shops and live performances. Listing all of the shops at The Grand Canal Shoppes probably would be too much, so we've picked a few: Acca Kappa (bath and beauty products), Ancient Creations (coin collectable), Brookstone (gifts and accesories), Buongiorno (newspapers), Cesare Paciotti (men's and women's designer fashion and shoes), Haagen-Dasz (icecream), Kids Carnivale (children's merchandise), Lido Beach Shop (beach apparel), Ripa de Monti (imported Venetian glass, masks and collectibles), Toys International (collectible toys) and Venetzia (jewelry). As we said before, there are many many more shops!back
