The Venetian (and The Palazzo) were the first hotels that introduced me to Las Vegas luxury properties. I was “lured” by a complimentary room offer and stayed pretty often at my own expense. For a few years, I stayed almost exclusively at The Palazzo when I wanted to enjoy a larger hotel room and more mellow casino.
Both hotel and casino towers have changed over the past few years but The Venetian overall still offers great suites at a fair price and fantastic service. When comparing room prices in Las Vegas it’s important to remember that The Venetian only offers suites. Yes, they’ll be a little more expensive than standard rooms but you get much more in the room. The Venetian has midweek room sales that make exploring this hotel with some of the Vegas restaurants in Las Vegas an affordable option.
I used to stay at The Palazzo more than The Venetian because I preferred the room design. The suites are similar but this tower has a bit more modern decor. The casino was larger at the time and was much more relaxing than it is today. There were also fewer kids at The Palazzo tower at the time. Families seemed to prefer The Venetian.
While this was cool, the VIP lounge at the time was only at The Venetian. That changed with the Prestige Club Lounge, which has been available at The Palazzo for years. This is a level of VIP service that anyone can buy. It’s now available at The Venetian.
“Prestige Club Lounge at The Palazzo was designed to provide guests with an unrivaled personalized experience,” said Marcy Miles, chief marketing officer of The Venetian Resort. “Expanding this luxury offering to The Venetian tower furthers our commitment to providing our guests with memorable experiences when they stay with us.”
Prestige Club Lounge
The Venetian is expanding its popular Prestige Club Lounge into a second hotel tower. This gives guests an opportunity to upgrade every part of their stay in The Venetian tower with VIP perks and amenities.
Here are the new Prestige Club Lounge locations:
- The Venetian tower: Located on The Venetian tower on the 36th floor, the Prestige Club Lounge at The Venetian offers beautiful views of the Vegas Strip.
- The Palazzo tower: This is the resort’s original Prestige Club Lounge at The Palazzo. It includes a business center and fabulous Vegas Strip views from the 23rd floor.
Prestige Club Lounge upgrades guarantee a suite with a view on a high floor. In addition, Prestige offers guests:
- Access to Prestige Club Lounge in The Venetian and The Palazzo towers
- Private check-in with a complimentary glass of sparkling Prosecco upon arrival
- Private concierge
- Daily continental breakfast
- Afternoon coffees, teas, and non-alcoholic beverages
- Evening cocktail reception with complimentary cocktails and beverages
- Access to the business center in The Palazzo lounge, with copying, printing, and internet availability
- Reserved pool chairs on The Palazzo pool deck (reservations required 24 hours in advance, limited availability)
This is a great option for business travelers for a couple of reasons:
- The Prestige Club Lounges has meeting rooms and a business center at The Palazzo tower. Trying to find a quiet place for meetings and calls in a casino can be difficult. This access can save a trip.
- Business travelers can also unwind with complimentary evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with clients and/or co-workers.
Frankly, the lounge access is great for both business and leisure travelers. Casinos can be a bit much at times. It’s nice to have access to a quiet lounge to relax and grab a drink and/or snack. This is also a place to get the party started if you’d like to pre-game before heading out for the evening.
The addition of the new Prestige Club Lounge at The Venetian comes as Caesars appears to be rolling back its VIP Diamond/Laurel Lounge at some properties. For example, the new Vanderpump à Paris will take over the Diamond Lounge space in the casino.
