The Venetian is always upgrading, expanding, and renovating. We’re going to look at the new pool deck today. Soon we’ll look at the new entertainment venue that’s being built behind the existing casino-resort. For the time being, you can read about The Sphere which should open next year.
It’s well into pool season in Las Vegas but The Venetian recently opened its newly renovated pool deck. The new pool area continues the European styling guests have come to love at The Venetian. The concept for the renovated pool deck comes from the Italian Riviera.
The new pool area at The Venetian is modest compared to some Vegas Strip contemporaries. For example, the pool deck now has just 10 premium poolside cabanas. What the pool lacks in size is made up for in quality.
Some of the cabanas feature their own private plunge pools. The pool deck includes various art pieces, sculptures, and beautiful gardens that offer a look and feel of a European escape.
“Through this reimagining of our pool experience, we are providing yet another reason for our guests to choose The Venetian Resort,” said Marcy Miles, chief marketing officer at The Venetian Resort. “The new pools and cabanas further our distinction as the ultimate Las Vegas destination and the perfect place to celebrate in the sun.”

Fun Facts about The Venetian

Sometimes it’s fun to learn about our favorite Las Vegas casinos. Today we’ll look at some random fun facts we recently learned about The Venetian and The Palazzo.
Personal fun fact: I prefer the more modern room design at The Palazzo than The Venetian. I also prefer The Palazzo because it seems as though fewer families stay at the hotel and that makes it feel less crowded. Okay, on to the real facts, not personal opinion.

  • When The Palazzo was added to The Venetian, the combined properties have more than 7,000 suites. This makes The Venetian the largest hotel “under one roof” in the United States.
  • The Venetian Colonnade’s marble floor was hand-fitted and modeled from the floor of the Church of Santa Maria del Rosario in Venice.
  • The Venetian lobby features 25-foot-high columns made of solid Botticino marble, imported from Italy.
  • The Venetian and The Palazzo host more than 40 restaurants, the most anywhere under one hotel roof.
  • The Venetian and The Palazzo serve more than 700,000 in-suite dining meals each year.
  • The Palazzo is the second tallest building in Nevada at 639.5 feet.
  • The Palazzo is 50 stories tall. There are no 4th, 13th, or 14th floors in the building.
  • The Palazzo features the only two-story porte cochere in Nevada with one level for drop off and another for pick up.
  • The indoor Grand Canal holds more than 273,000 gallons of water, and the deeper, outdoor canal holds more than 570,000.
  • Using a standard garden hose for 24 hours a day, it would take 65 days to fill the indoor canal.
  • More than 500,000 visitors ride the gondolas every year.
