Venetian Las Vegas Luxury King Suite Review

Few Las Vegas resorts are as enthralling as Venetian at the north end of the Strip. Venetian is known for luxury and extraordinary theming in a destination that has moved towards less theme, and more blah. First opening in the spring of 1999, the new mega-resort sits on the site that Sands previously occupied.

We recently had the chance to stay in one of Venetian’s Luxury Suites and wanted to share a look inside the room and resort as a whole.

Our first impressions came the morning of check-in. We had caught an early flight to Vegas and were milling around the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood with our bags when I received an email stating my suite was ready and that I could check-in. Being it was 10:30 am, this was completely unexpected as typically, Vegas hotels offer a 4 pm check-in with an option to PAY to get into your room early.

We checked in online from my phone and were given the option of obtaining our key virtually as opposed to being issued a physical key card. Venetian instructed us via email to download a specific phone app that would act as our room key. It was slick, quick, and impressive. Completely touchless check-in process.

Venetian Luxury Suite Room and Amenities

Venetian’s Luxury King Suite offers 650 square feet of space with separate sleeping and living areas. The living space comes complete with a couch, 2 chairs, a dining table with seating for 3, and a work desk. Both the sleeping area and living space come equipped with a flat-screen TV. A nice touch, the living area is sunken in and is about 3 feet lower than the sleeping area.

The room’s window had power drapes that were controlled from a panel in the sleeping area.

We were impressed with the comfort of the king bed and had no trouble falling asleep. It may have had something to do with reduced midweek occupancy due to the pandemic, but there was minimal noise heard in the hallway outside the room.

A closet in the sleeping area came equipped with an iron/ironing board, safe, and hangers for clothing as you would expect.

The Suite’s bathroom was large by our standards and offered 2 sinks, a makeup area, a deep soaking bathtub, and a separate glass shower. The toilet was located in a very small separate side room to the main bathroom.

The Pool at Venetian

Sure, the room is nice, but the pool is a signature amenity in my mind. Guests at Venetian have access to both Venetian and Palazzo’s pool and there is a short pedestrian walkway that connects the two. Both pool decks incorporate multiple pools into their design, so there is an abundance of space to spread out. Located on the 3rd-floor roof deck, you are sure to find a sunny spot to nurse your hangover.

Gaming Floor at Venetian

Venetian’s gaming floor is home to a wide variety of slot games as you would expect any casino in Las Vegas to be. Compared to less opulent properties, games tend to be more modern and “flashy”.

As an upscale property, Venetian’s table game limits for Craps, Blackjack, and Roulette tend to be a tad higher than neighboring Strip properties. I mostly saw $15-$25 minimums when I stayed mid-week. Note that there are a number of electronic table games that allow for lower minimum bets.

Venetian’s sportsbook is among the best in Las Vegas. We recommend placing your bet, walking to the Walgreens 100 yards away, buying a 6 pack, then coming back to the book to watch your game with some cheap beers.

An Abundance of “Things To Do”

Beyond gambling, there is simply SO much to do at Venetian. Most notable is the Grand Canal Shoppes, which are also themed to look and feel like Italy and are stunning. Built into the shoppes is an indoor canal that gondoliers navigate while serenading their passengers. Make sure to stop by St. Mark’s Square for several dining options, an authentic vibe, and the free Streetmosphere show which runs daily. Whether you are into shopping or not, you’ll love walking through the Grand Canal Shoppes.

Dining options on-site are plentiful, although most are upscale in nature. Fortunately, there are cheap and mid-tier options at neighboring resorts for those looking for a meal on a budget.

With a Walgreen’s built into the resort, it’s also easy to stock your room with snacks, beer, or pick up that toiletry item you may have forgotten to pack.

The Verdict: Is the Venetian Luxury King Suite Worth Booking?

Do it. Absolutely. The room was worth the upgrade from our typical accommodations in Vegas. On most trips, we rarely spend time in the room, but this time we found ourselves lounging in the living area, watching a movie, and drinking beers we bought from Walgreens after a long day of walking the Strip. It was perfect. Whether you are looking for a resort with upscale rooms and amenities, or a beautiful “home base” property with plenty to do, see, eat, and drink, Venetian is a no brainer.

My daughter and I stayed at the Venetian at the Palazzo about a month ago and we had a great time. The Suite was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. We had a great weekend. The only problem we had was the dining. We could not find a good restaurant that had great food and easy on the pocket. We had a blast at the Casino. We played the slots and we won enough to shop a little. We took a Gondola ride as if we were in Italy. We are hoping to visit again soon.

Did the digital key feature via the app also work where the security typically asks you to scan your room key?

@RJ, yep! Anywhere’s a key was needed, to include the pool.

The room are awesome and spacious. You are bound to get lost in the hotel and exhausted by the time you find your room. Just a word of precaution of the steep incidental deposit for $150/night plus your hotel rate which is excessive.

My king suite was exactly the same as yours but we also had a TV in the bathroom. The resort was nice, plenty of dining options and the concierge was very helpful. The only issue I had with the resort was the timeshare selling staff that wouldn’t allow you to peacefully walk the halls without them harassing you. They continued to pitch free stuff even though you tell them you’re not interested

We just came back from staying at Venetian. We had a wonderful time. The rooms are exactly at shown. The only thing I suggest are more plugs for the phones by the bed. There was only one plug on the alarm clock. Needs the have some on the opposite side of the bed as well. The beds we very comfortable. We arrived very late so I wasn’t sure they had anymore king rooms available, but they found us a king room. They first asked us if we wanted to upgrade to a bigger suite for another $80 a night but we were happy with what I booked. If they didn’t find me a room, I would have asked for a free upgrade if my room catagory wasn’t available. We had some wonderful meals and my best one was at Casanova. Lamb chops were melt in your mouth, lick the plate good…we used the pool area as well on this trip, only because of the time of year, the sun doesn’t come over the building until 2:30 in the afternoon, it was all good when you know what to expect..
