The Venetian – Las Vegas Review – Part 1


We had an opportunity to stay at The Venetian Resort located on the Las Vegas strip. we booked this stay using the anniversary free night received from the “Chase IHG Rewards Club Select credit card

We will do a review of the property in two parts, one for the resort overview and other for the suite itself.

All rooms in this resort are Suites. If you want to stay on points, you need 50,000 IHG points per night.  This resort is over 35 stories high with over 4,000 Suites.

Even if you are staying on a reward night, you would still pay $29 + taxes per night, as resort fee. Resort fees gives you

Access for two to the fitness facility within the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, in-suite internet access (WiFi or Ethernet), boarding pass printing, unlimited local and toll-free calls, daily newspaper, two complimentary coffee or tea beverages at Café Presse per day, and one two-for-one drink coupon for well drinks, domestic beer or wine at any casino bar excluding The Bourbon Room (must be 21 or older to redeem drink coupon).

 

Check-in area of the hotel is big, with a separate line for IHG Elite members.

At Check-in, out of curiosity, I asked for an upgrade to a bigger suite. I was given several options with an upgrade fee ranging from $70 to $300 per night.  When I politely declined the offers, I was asked “How much do you want to pay?” – which tells me that the check-in agent has the power to lower it down if he/she wants to.

However, as an IHG Platinum member, I was upgraded to a higher floor strip view room.

This resort features “Venice, Italy” theme,  and you could see some great artwork in rich detail.

Venetian  guests have access to 4 pools in the resort.  Festiva pool is the largest of all.

While I personally did not get a chance to use the pool, there are many guests enjoying the pool.

There is a spa onsite “Canyon Ranch Spa Club“open from 6.00 AM to 8.00 PM. packages are expensive as you would expect with a Las Vegas strip resort. You can find the complete list of packages and prices.

You could find a coupon in your room which would offer from 20% discount on one session to a free massage.
