Luxury Las Vegas: My Stay at The Venetian Resort


Where did I stay in Las Vegas?

I loved the luxury suites at The Venetian Resort! I stayed in the Palazzo tower.

Did you know?

Every Single Room is a Suite! And each suite is nearly double the size of the average Las Vegas hotel room.

My suite was incredible. I loved that it was so spacious with separate sunken living area, a full sized work desk and a table with two chairs so you can order in your meals as well as entertain by the couch and enjoy the views from the floor to ceiling window. I slept so well on my pillow-top king bed and loved the oversized roman tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. There are two sinks as well as a makeup mirror and vanity area.

After not being able to travel, I loved walking around the resort and taking advantage of the climbing wall at Canyon Ranch spa + fitness which is one of the world’s largest day spas. There are more than 150 extraordinary services in a 134,000-square-foot Las Vegas day spa with more than 90 treatment rooms, exclusive amenities, and the warm personal attention at this Forbes Travel Guide Four Star spa.

THANK YOU to MIKE for taking great care of me on the climbing wall! I loved it!

Ready for some outdoor time? I loved the Cabanas and Daybeds at all of the pools–you can enjoy The Venetian or Palazzo side! Swim, sip and relax!

Looking for a special libation? We had drinks at Electra where the cocktails were designed by Award-winning Bartender Sam Ross! Make sure to check out the largest mezcal collection in Las Vegas. We loved the Penichillin and sitting at the bar to select our next cocktail.

While I was on property, there was a grand opening for SUSHISAMBA which is a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine. The food is FANTASTIC! I loved it!

My favorite thing was my gondola ride. It reminded me of my time in Venice, Italy. I enjoyed the gondolier singing and the gorgeous colors at sunset. We picked an outdoor ride but you can also choose indoor! We floated beneath bridges and listened to the songs. Next time, I want to see The Gondolier March! It is a special tradition when the team of gondoliers sing in unison as they march along the indoor canal at 9:50 a.m. and 4:20 p.m., beginning at the gondola turn-around in the Grand Canal Shoppes.

As part of our IPW Vegas 2021 Media Brunch, we saw The Mayor from The Atomic Saloon Show at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas! Vegas is always a wild ride!
