The Venetian Las Vegas

Venice in Vegas? Never say never. In the Lala-land that is Las Vegas, just about anything is possible, such as The Venetian which brings the Italian experience of canals and the gondolas right into the heart of the American desert. And what an experience it is!

The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino is a luxury hotel and casino by all standards, situated between Harrah's and The Palazzo on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. Part of the largest five diamond hotel and resort complex the Venetian offers amazing views, stunning plush suites and luxury and opulence to the highest level.

Check into one of the famously unique suites, individual and tailored for different needs. It could all become too much choosing just one but we’ll suggest the Rialto Suite perfect for both work and play. As you enter the double-door entrance into an Italian marble foyer, you'll feel right at home in the Rialto Suite. You'll revel in the plush, queen-sized pillow-top beds, Egyptian cotton sheets, and a spacious walk-in closet. We can’t forget to mention the Roman tub with separate glass-enclosed shower and an adjacent water closet with telephone. If you really must work in this beautiful place then the Rialto Suite has you covered as it offers a work area, with dual-line phone, wireless Internet access, and comfortable seating. Yup the suite really does allow you to work hard (if you absolutely must) and play even harder.

Now of course you’re in Vegas and as heavenly as your room may be, there is more beyond those double doors to be discovered. Las Vegas is incredibly diverse with vast attractions, events, food, nightlife and unique experiences.
