As one of the most visited theme hotels in Las Vegas, the iconic Venetian Hotel will transport you to the heart of the city of Venice. Take a romantic gondola ride along the winding canals while being serenaded by an authentic Italian gondolier, and visit intricately detailed replicas of Venice’s greatest landmarks--including the Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower, St. Mark’s Square and the Bridge of Sighs to name a few. Incredibly kitschy yet nonetheless impressive, it’s easy to see why the elaborate Venetian Hotel cost over US$1.5 billion dollar to create. Italian historians were flown in to aid the painstaking recreation of famous Venetian artworks and monuments, and the Italian theme continues in the hotel’s living spaces. The 4,027 elegant suites have been meticulously designed with spacious sunken living rooms, Italian marble bathrooms, and beds with goose down duvets. This is also one of the most popular conference venues in Las Vegas, so don’t be surprised if you see raucous bachelor parties, stylish Europeans and nerdy pharmaceutical conference executives all occupying the same social landscape. The Venetian’s Canyon Ranch SpaClub is also one of North America’s largest spas (134,000 sq feet), and the hotels’ top floor Concierge Suites offer private check-in and executive lounge service. You’ll experience a true sense of Las Vegas fantasy when staying at the Venetian.
