Best Las Vegas Hotel

The Venetian brings the soul of Renaissance Venice to Las Vegas. An integrated resort, The Venetian offers all the romance and grandeur of its namesake and more. USA Today calls it "the most romantic hotel in Las Vegas."

At The Venetian, every key unlocks a suite. Roughly twice the size of the average hotel room, each suite features an all-Italian-marble bath, sunken living room with sofa and armchairs, and much more. Just steps outside these incomparable suites wait the world's most sought-after chefs, entertainers, shopping, and amenities. These are just a few of the reasons why San Diego Magazine named The Venetian "best Las Vegas hotel."

From moment to moment, no other hotel can deliver the same exciting and rewarding experiences of The Venetian. For those who live for excitement amid luxurious surroundings, The Venetian delivers on every promise it makes and is the premier destination for those who love to live richly.

gondola Rides Authentic Venetian Gondola

No trip to Venice — or The Venetian — would be complete without a graceful and romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies, and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal for a ride like no other.

Among the many things to do in Las Vegas, stepping back in time and into one of our Old World gondolas is among the most fun and romantic. Surrender to the romance of a live serenade and take in the sights from a one-of-a-kind vantage point as you float along the Grand Canal and under bridges, absorbing the enchanting atmosphere of Las Vegas’ most unique and elegant resort. Or choose the outdoor ride and enjoy an open-air experience right on the Strip.

And if you’re wondering about The Venetian gondola ride, indoor vs. outdoor, don’t worry. Each offers its own unique views, but are equally romantic, enthralling, and worth the price of admission. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that every gondola ride – whether indoor our outdoor – is full of wonderful moments, perfect for a family photograph album or just a simple posting on social media.
