The Venetian - location?

We would like to stay at The Venetian Hotel because we heard the decor is beautiful and we loved Italy, but we want to make sure it is located in a central location where we can walk to everything. Any thoughts? Are the rooms in good condition?

Location of the V is fine. Ok it's not right at what most people consider to be "center Strip", the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd and Flamingo Road where Bellagio and Caesars sit, but don't let that put you off.

Wherever you stay on the Strip you should be prepared to do lots of walking in order to see all the hotels and attractions. The V is an excellent choice so don't try and second guess yourselves.

A very nice hotel. Reasonably central location (the Strip extends far enough that no one place is an easy walk to everything).

It's pretty convenient. Not too isolated. As Blagger said, all the hotels on the strip are far apart, but Venetian is a pretty good location. It's too far to easily walk down to MGM, but it's an easy walk to Caesars, Harrahs, Paris, and those around there. It's a nice place to stay. Have a great trip!

You will be fine. Although it may be a little north of what some people would consider centrally located, it is close enough.

Just don't expect it to really remind you of Venice or Italy. Everything in Vegas is fake, more kitchy, high camp, cheesy rather than authentic. Last time I was in Venice, there was water under the Rialto Bridge (unlike the one in Vegas) and the canal water was not the bright color it is in Vegas. :-)

Some people have mentioned that the rooms in the V are a little bit worn out, is Palazzo the new section of the V or are they two separate hotels? I like the suite layout of the V rooms, but we want to go to shows at night and I see that Bellagio would be more convenient. Any thoughts?

If you stay at Venetian, ask for a room in the Venetian Tower, as these rooms have been updated. It's a big property, with many great dining options, and bars. You may like it so much that you never leave the property. :-)

Palazzo, it's sister property, is newer and more compact, a bit further walk to mid-strip, but both would be a very good choice.

If you want location, location, location, choose Bellagio, Caesars, Paris, Cosmo or one of the true mid-strip locations for easy walking access.

Its little off the mid strip but the location is fine unless you want to spend a lot of time at the MGM area.

Venetian is in a great location and you can walk to plenty of other nice areas. But it is hard to judge others walking ability. Most people could easily range from there to Palazzo, Wynn, Mirage, TI, Caesars, Harrahs, and maybe Bellagio. Continuing to Cosmopolitan/Paris/Planet Hollywood is getting farther afield for some but would still be fine with me. I'm a pretty good walker but would start griping if someone wanted me to go all the way to MGM/Tropicana/Excalibur from Venetian. But if it is a whole day of wandering it could happen. I'm sure others will claim to have walked from Mandalay Bay to the Stratosphere but I suspect few want to do that - and then some will need a scooter to just get from the buffet to the slots in the casino.

Bottom line: I agree with Truman that Venetian is an ideal location.

You really don't need to worry about location unless you're contemplating staying off the Strip. On the Strip, everything is within walking distance or if you're not a great walker, or it's really hot, or you're wearing heels, taxis are abundant and cheap (every hotel has a taxi line) and there are buses and trams too. Honestly, Vegas is one of the few US tourist destinations you don't need a car to get the best out of. Pick whichever of the Strip hotels appeals to you and your budget the most and you can't really go wrong.
