Having stayed at the Venetian on each of my other trips to Macau, I thought I'd give another hotel a chance and I was very glad I did. Like the reviewer below I also booked the "hotel of the month" deal on macau.com and stayed in a grand suite for a little under HKD900 per night. Specific points:
Rooms: spacious and tastefully decorated (see photos), it was so clean it felt like we were the first occupants. A big plus for this hotel is that (with your keycard) you can get the lift straight to your room without having to walk miles through casinos. Likewise, the reception, bar and restaurants are separate from the casino on the third floor.
Bathroom: very nice bathtub, separate rain shower from roof. The blinds can be pulled down for privacy from the living/sleeping room.
Amenities: All quality - the room came with a plasma tv that swiveled out from the wall, an ipod docking stereo, free broadband, a nespresso machine and bulgari toiletries.
Location: taxis are so cheap in macau that location is not really a consideration - e.g. to/from the ferry terminal is HKD20 (or you could get the free half-hourly shuttle there). Similar cost to the centre of town.
Staff: their English is generally not the best but they do bend over backwards. Late check-out was no problem.
Casino: first floor. Clean and smart, not overly crowded, free drinks at the vip table (min $100 BJ bets, $10 roulette) not sure about the other tables. Good aircons so not as smoky as the big casinos and doesn't have any working-girls strutting about. Staff are very friendly: whether the dealers or the people in light blue jackets who speak perfect English.
All in all, this is a perfect base for tourists who prefer staying in boutique hotels over chains or big casino-and-buffet combos. For gamblers it's a comfortable and classy casino hotel. No buffets or fountain shows here, but they're only a cheap taxi away if you want them.
