Received a very generous three night comp stay via the Grazie program. Had passed through the Palazzo on my previous stay in the middle of December and bet 25 a hand blackjack for an hour and that's it... was elated at the chance to stay here for free.
Check in process at about 1pm or so on a Tuesday was seamless, although my room wasn't ready immediately so I kinda camped out by the machines and played a little bit. Received a call just a short while later (maybe an hour at most) informing me my room was ready. Hauled my stuff through the casino, up the elevator and down the floor to my room. The room was immaculate and exactly what I imagined having seen photos of the 'Luxury Suites' on the website. The bed was extremely comfortable although lacking in pillows in my opinion, but that's just quibbling. You can always ask for more of those (I didn't). The bathroom was amazing with a whirpool tub and a shower on its own. There was a vanity to the right as you enter. The sinks are magnificent. I am actually not a bathroom person at all, but I was wowed a little.
The casino looks a little run down and quite old. Machines are kind of tossed together haphazardly with not much room to navigate between them. $1 Wheel of fortune machines looked like they were relics from another century. Tables were fun and lively, dealers were very efficient and nice. Pit boss was very accommodating and friendly even when a friend spilled his drink.
Grand Lux cafe was in 'I don't care' mode at about 11PM on a Tuesday night, so I would advise against going there if possible. Grills were shut down and the entire menu was off limits pretty much even though the menu specifically said that items would be available until 12am. Man at the counter was pretty aloof and also in 'I don't care' mode. Order took about 15-20 minutes for a club sandwich... really? On top of it, the fries were not fresh and had clearly been sitting out for an hour or so. I guess in preparation of the shutdown that coincided with my visit. Of course, there aren't a whole lot of options at that time as the food court shuts down PRECISELY at 11 so don't even bother trying to get in a last call there lol. The next night instead of dealing with Grand Lux (I'm a night owl and operate pretty much at night) I went to Noodle Asia by the beautiful and generally perfect poker room, I ordered Kung Pao chicken and a sprite, which cost my THIRTY dollars. I get that Vegas is expensive, but that's just extortion there... especially when you consider the dish, which is supposed to come WITH peanuts, was made entirely OF peanuts with just a side of chicken, which incidentally was delicious. You can do much better than this, Venetian.
I would love to come back next time, but I'll have to adjust my night time habits accordingly as the night time is a bit of an afterthought it seems throughout the casino. Solid 8/10 overall.
Supposedly the Venezia tower is where it's at. All rooms are pretty close to elevators and the...
