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:

For my extended stay! wootWOOT!
I always do enjoy staying in the 650 square feet of greatly appointed indulgence that is the Venetian. And fortunately I was upgraded to the Towers. I love the towers... with the separate elevators and lovely mini pool and spas filled with families that would love to see my ink adorned epidermis *feigning sarcasm. The one draw back is that, if you have a large party it would behoove you to get multiple keys so you can get through the security check points that cover both entrances leading to the rooms. But in our case, dealing with 4 people wasn't that hard to pull off with 2 keys.
Other than that, staying here afforded us the luxury of being attached to the newer Palazzo and the ever fun canals. I found that the Palazzo didn't quite have as many people in their half of the floor space and that the canals are just as fun as I remembered them to be... especially when you are drunk.
Oh, and another draw back is that if you are going to party like we did, it's all that much harder to really enjoy any of the amenities that come with your room @ their prices. Staying here, as with many things, especially while drunk... are all the same in the dark.
Actually given the maze like layout, it's much harder to vacate the premises, especially while hung over.

As a kid growing up, I always referred to this hotel as "the one with the cool sky". HA! To this day, I still call it just that. If you're a first timer and just losing your V(egas)irginity, you have to go to one of the shows located in the symposium.
It's expanded a great deal since my childhood; there's more restaurants, attractions, and a food court the last time I went. I didn't have a great deal actually exploring what's new, but there are noticable changes. As the usual, you can pretend to be in Venice and take a ride in the boats as they try to create that authentic experience for you without actually going there. There's also a section now where you can enjoy fine dining (can't recall any of the restaurant names unfortunately, I was in a rush while passing by here),
While there are a myriad of options you can choose from, the Venetian is located on the edge of the strip, and the rooms are absolutely pristine. Try to find deals or you will be forking out a ton for a couple of nights here.Recommended for:

This is a really cool resort. There are singing gondoliers, more shopping than you can cover in a single day, more restaurants and bars than you can hit in a week, and nightlife/entertainment forever. The Canyon Ranch Spa is excellent, and they usually have at least 5 theatrical performances on-property.

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:

I been to the Macau location, and enjoy that one more than here. Bigger and felt more class, there's more high end casino in the strip so therefore this one isn't felt as special. I felt they copy the forum mall style from Caesar, not as original. Both are italian style. But this one is a bit more modern, but I prefer with a theme and historic like Caesar.

Friendly service, convenient location and comfortable hotel rooms.
While many of the newer hotels on the strip might have stolen the spotlight for this once highly popular luxury resort, the Venetian remained one of my preferred places to stay.
All of their suites are spacious with excellent floor plans. The separate sunken living room has large sofa and a decent size dining table are great for having friends over. Be careful with the stairs though. The wooden floor could be slippery.
Rooms were in overall pretty good condition. Decor was slightly dated but amenities were well maintained. Ladies will love their bathrooms. The vanity table with the lighted makeup mirror really came in handy. You will have everything you need to look pretty.
The casino and lobby area were always busy with the main aisles crowded with guests dragging their luggage around . Use the Venezia tower elevators if you could. It might be a slightly longer walk but you can bypass many of the traffic.
The location really can't get any better. It is at the heart of strip surrounded by the nicer hotels. Sephora and Walgreens were next door. Fashion show mall is just a short walk away and there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from.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:

I basically plowed down the Vegas strip, anxiously making my way to the Venetian to see if they'd done my favorite city justice. Turns out, they did! Obviously, it's not as incredible as Venice, but it's pretty cool to see gondolas rowing through the hotel and the ceilings painting like blue Venetian skies.Recommended for:

As decadent as you'd expect a Venetian-themed hotel to be, this beautiful hotel is a great place to spend a luxurious Vegas vacation. If you've got the coin, spring for a suite, complete with living room, kitchenette, sitting area, and huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub. This hotel also boasts the nightclub Tao, famous for celebrity sightings.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:

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:

I and my family stayed here for a couple of nights and we loved it. It's way beyond our expectations...clean and big space. My kids had so much room to play. My husband can relax after long drive. I am so happy in everything it has. With the price I payed, it's totally a very good deal. I stronglly recommend that if you go to vegas, Stay at the Venetian. All the things you need is in the hotel. We will definitely go back and bring family members. Thanks for the wonderful experience. We love The Venetian!Recommended for:
