The Vegas interpretation of Venice, complete with gondola rides.
With gondoliers singing on its Grand Canal, this 63-acre resort emulates the romance, charm and festival-like atmosphere of old Venice. It is a miniature city complete with replicated statuary, hand-painted frescoed ceilings and tributes to familiar Venetian landmarks. The suites boast marble foyers, wrought-iron railings, sunken living rooms and spacious Italian marble bathrooms. The plush, canopy-draped bedrooms feature Venetian floral armoires. The opening of the concierge-level Venezia Tower added 1,013 elegant suites, accessible by high-speed elevator from a separate check-in counter. Guests can browse the luxury boutiques of the Grand Canal Shoppes, or pamper themselves at The Canyon Ranch Spa, which offers an appealing menu of deluxe treatments. For dining, options include restaurants by renowned chefs such as Wolfgang Puck, Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse. Also on the property is the trendy restaurant and nightclub TAO, frequented by partying celebrities. Entertainment options include PANDA! (high-flying Chinese acrobats) and Rock of Ages.
