Come to Lost Wages this time of year (June, in a bad economy) and you can get some deals, especially mid-week!
I come to Vegas several times a year, mostly for business (well, you always can mix in some pleasure here in Sin City). So I prefer to go to an off-the-strip hotel, like you might find in every other city.
Why the Hades would I stay at a Courtyard, Embassy Suites or other such businessperson's hotel when I go to Vegas you ask?
Because if you are trying to make business calls, and drive around town as a humble worker bee toiling his trade, you want to be able to get in your hotel and out of your hotel, usually easily and quickly, like you do in Bakersfield, or Missoula, Hackensack or anywhere else Johnny Cash used to sing about. ("I've been everywhere, man!" I can relate!)
So the last thing you want to do is be with the prolitereate masses of rookies, wanabees, country bumpkins, and drunk douchebags, waiting in line for 20 minutes for your Valet car, 20 minutes for your bags, walk through endless casinos that stretch for blocks, and fight through oggling crowds fixated on free shows on Las Vegas Boulevard.
But sometimes you have to make exceptions, like I did today.
The deal:Luxury Suite on the 33rd floor of the Venetian, with oversized bathroom with marble floors and double doors, a separate commode room, large bathtub and separate glass enclosed shower, vanity, his/hers sink, king size bed, 3 flat screen TVs, step down living room with gold sectional couch, large coffee table, desk with fax/printer and WIFI, separate dining table, remote control automated curtains, 2 terry robes, sensor mini-bar, and luxury appointments.
Wait, that's not all!
Add $25 in slot money, complimentary golf club rentals, 50% discount on a round of golf at Bali Hai or Royal Links, 20% off your bill at Restaurant Charlie, 2 for 1 well drinks at Salute in the Palazzo Hotel, and 20% off at the Pinot Brasserie.
Cost on a Thursday night in June?
$300? (WIlliam Shatner scoffs! Go lower, he whispers)
$200? (Bill says, Mamby Pamby! Lower)
$150? (Shatner is asking to be beamed up!)
Try $109. Yup, all that for $109.
And Bill Shatner had nothing to do with it. Neither did Price Line. I just saw their show, Jersey Boys last year, didn't even stay here then (I was at the Embassy Suites!) and they emailed me the special.
Turns out I turned the $25 free slots into $60, took that to the Craps table and turned it into $300. So I came out way ahead.
And instead of seeing businessmen in business casual wear at the Courtyard, there was nothing but lovely women showing a lot of flesh in their little strapless mini-dresses. Las Vegas gives women the excuse to dress like a hooker, and they all do when the sun goes down.
Only problem is, they can't wear that same mini-dress back in Peoria or Poughkeepsie or Petaluma! Not at the local Marriott at least!
Which reminds me, didn't William Shatner play a "Hooker" on TV?Recommended for:

I've spent over 200 nights of my life in this luxury hotel. I probably reduced my lifespan by triple that number being in Vegas, but the entertainment and memories were probably 100x.
Sticking to this math theme, let's give you reasons why you should stay here when in Sin City:
Bella Luxury Suites have 2 queen beds, 1 pullout full sized-couch (comfy), and one soft sofa. That means 7 people can sleep comfortably in beds.
Avg price of a Bella on a Fri/Sat is around $270, you can easily find deals online/book early to pay $220-250.
Do the math. It's very affordable and as world-class luxury as you can get.
Not to mention the fun you'll have with friends, the amazing TAO nightclub and TAO Beach at the Venetian, the shopping and feel of Venice, Italy (my favorite city in the entire planet), the great dining options (Grand Luxe, SushiSamba which is connected to Palazzo, Cut, etc.).
5 stars. 10 if i could. 2x the pleasure of a regular hotel.Recommended for:

Really nice and a fantastic place simply to walk through and visit if you're staying somewhere else. Location wise it does not get much better than this. You're right in the middle of the strip!Recommended for:

After staying in several affordable hotels in vegas, I'd like to say this is by far my favorite. All the rooms are suites and it's perfect if you're going with a group of friends. No one has to sleep on the floor!
The top 3 reason I like the Venetian:
1.The hotel that is located in the middle of the strip
3. Immaculate (I get paranoid about cleanliness)
The shopping center inside is fun to walk around in. Something about the fake sky and the little canal makes me feel like I'm on vacation mode. The cheesy gondola ride full of tourists amuses me.
The suite includes: 2 comfy queen size beds, 1 pullout bed, 1 nice bathroom (shower and tub) and a mediocre view.Recommended for:

From the moment we stepped into the lobby we were taken aback by how well presented the hotel was, the size of it and the attention to detail. Walking through the hotel its easy to forget your in Las Vegas and not Venice. It is very luxurious indeed, The Doge's Palace, the Campanile, The Bridge of Sighs, the gondoliers make it surreal in the extreme.
The entire hotel keeps to the Venice theme with gondola's running on a canal through the shopping mall, a replica of St Marks square and beautiful paintings on the ceilings. It's classy and elegant and quite literally incredible.Recommended for:

This was a nice hotel that I recently spent a weekend at with a bunch of friends for a bachelor party. We all seemed to enjoy the place. We ended up with a couple of adjoining suites and packed them to the gunnels.
The couches and beds were comfy. The rooms were properly equipped with ironing boards, multiple TVs, Hi ball glasses, etc. We were wishing that we had some bigger ice buckets! As it was we had to do the motel 6 move of taking the igloo to the ice machine and well you know how that goes...
PRO TIP #1: Always take the free Valet parking!
The hotel provided a myriad of little bathroom items that are always needed by someone; shower cap w/scrunche, mending kit, emery board and something, and q-tips. That is in addition to the standard soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion.
The decor was nice and with the suites not low end. The rooms were narrow but long with a railing for the living room area but no fridge or cooking area at all.
PRO TIP #2: make sure you always have a key card with you or the group you are in whenever you go downstairs. They post guards to key card check the rooms... annoying but gotta keep the hookers out somehow eh?
The main entrance has some wonderfully colonnaded arches and vaulted ceilings. The colors are matched throughout the entire facility. Dark wood accents in the restaurants to the furniture in the rooms. Khaki stonework throughout the main casino entrance and hallways as well as the paint in the rooms.
Overall it was a great stay, but its a bit pricey I think as well. The hotel service was lacking at times as we had to order extra towels and didnt end up with maid service in one of our two rooms grrrrr... but overall it was a great stay for us.Recommended for:

To me, Venetian is a place to stay while in Las Vegas. I like the way they try to create an atmosphere of being in Venice. Sure, it’s all “fake” and doesn’t come even remotely close to the real thing. But most hotels in Vegas are an imitation of something else, so I happened to like this one. Its central location on the strip makes it easy to explore the main attractions. I really liked the spacious room, with sunken living room and a huge bed (you could remotely control the curtains and shades on the window from your bed). You can often find special deals for this hotel, so price could be fairly reasonable.Recommended for:

Venetian, predecessor to the Palazzo is a great hotel. It's in a great location, and I consider it one of the higher quality hotels in Vegas, characterized by a European Old World style. If you want a more sophisticated feeling hotel, this is a great option. If you want a party crowd, try Planet Hollywood or New York, New York. I like the clubs on this part of the strip better though.Recommended for:

Definitely one of my go to hotel (along with the sister hotel Palazzo), because it's right on the strip, walking distance to the Wynn and many other fun hotels, price is almost always right, and I often win.
The rooms are all suites, and really huge. You can fit 3-4 people comfortably (although I usually go for work, alone). Anyway, great hotel to stay in but night life is not as happening.

All suites hotels are great for a group of friends traveling and having a fun time together. all suites hotels like the Venetian is the best way for a group to party together too. The complex has awesome restaurants, nice shops, and of course, party central, Tao night club.

The hotel isn't too bad. There are two sections of rooms in the hotel. I don't know the names of the two sections. But one section seems a bit older and not as nice as the other section. I stayed here multiple times and most of by experience has been good. The hotel is clean, nice and a bit fancy. They almost always have discounts. I get their monthly emails and. They have pretty good deals.
The casino floor is pretty nice and you will pretty much find what you need. Overall a great place to be if you want to be a bit fancy and don't have to spend too much. When you get a two bed suite, you can comfortably sleep 6 people. Since they have two long sofas. Really nice if you in a decent crowd.

In photos, the Venetian Hotel looks amazingly like Venice. The reproductions are accurate except for scale. When you see the hotel in person, you realize it is not quite like being in Venice but we found it fun to wander around and enjoy the theme.
