Located at the center of the glittering Las Vegas Strip, the Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino is undeniably one of the finest, most luxurious hotels in all of Las Vegas. The Venetian stands alone, as the only casino hotel on the strip to offer luxurious, all-suites accommodations. And how many hotels anywhere can boast a canal with gondola rides, complete with singing gondoliers, located right in the middle of them? Inspired by the splendor of Venice, the hotel has been created with replicas of classic Venetian architecture and art - from St. Marks Square to the interior of the Doge's Palace. The spacious casino offers over 120 table games in a lavish environment, with a semi-private, high-limit area. This is a casino with culture, however - its Guggenheim/Hermitage Museum hosts regularly changing exhibitions of art from both of those esteemed institutions. The Venetian is also home to Madame Tussaud's Las Vegas, with over 100 wax figures on exhibit.
The Venetian's 4000 suites are among the largest in America; complete with large, sunken living rooms, and spacious, meticulously appointed, marble bathrooms. They feature a classical, Venetian influenced décor, and an extended range of upscale amenities. When it comes time to dine, the Venetian offers 17 different restaurants on the premises. The celebrity chef creations include Piero Selvaggio's "Valentino" (hailed as restaurant in "America's #1 Restaurant" by Wine Spectator), and Wolfgang Puck's "Postrio" (called "One Of The Ten Greatest Restaurants In The World" by Hotels Magazine), among others. The resort's Canyon Ranch Spaclub has also received numerous accolades in the press; and has been lauded as one of the best spa facilities in the nation. The resort's pool terrace is modeled after a Venetian garden, and features two, large swimming pools and two large whirlpool spas.
