    I stayed at the Venetian Venezia tower on a recent weekend after getting a Low Price Guarantee deal where I only had to pay for one night at a reduced rate.

    To get from my suite to the casino required taking an elevator down (forgot the floor), walking through a series of hallways to get to an area where the tower bridge and Buchon is, past the Venezia pool area to another area where you then take another elevator down to the casino floor.

    To get to the gym required crossing the tower bridge, follow signage to another elevator to the 4th floor (?), follow more signage, and more signage and halls to the spa reception area, then down a set of stairs to the gym. You are then given a piece of cheese and a pat on the head.

    Getting to the Venetian pool, you have to cross the tower bridge, then it all gets fuzzy, but I think it goes - signage, hall, elevator, pool.

    Anyways, not good if you have Achilles tendonitis from running on soft beach sand.

    Cheers,

    Cosmo

    Ha! I've enjoyed the times I've stayed at The Venetian, but no doubt one can put some miles on the shoes. Caesar's is very similar in that regard.

    That is one of the reasons I won't stay there. I swear if my hubby wasn't with me when we stayed, I would have given up looking for my room and slept on a bench.

    I guess I'm directionally challenged.

    I wouldn't stay in the Venezia Tower again. It's not worth my time. I don't understand why an hotel company would put the elevator at the center of the U-shaped hotel rather than at the end, where EVERY single guest is entering.

    Took me a couple days...kept going the wrong ways even stone cold sober..Eventually the artwork became familiar like a trail of breadcrumbs..Trying to find the right elevators to parking was nuts also..Funny when we arrived,a guy leaving was kinda frazzled and said good luck finding your way around and we said the exact same thing when we were leaving to someone else..
    Really liked the room though there and at Palazzo following year.Sunken living room and office desk etc.
    But alas the comped rooms were cut from low rollers,so it's back to the Rio :snore:

    Last month when checking in at the Venetian I asked for a low floor close to elevators, the check in girl says not many people ask for that. A view is nice and sometimes the 4th floor can be a bit crowded with access to the pool and spa but it does make it a bit easier to get around. Back when Harrah's was still a showboat out front, a friend and I got lost crawling all over the thing. I shouldn't say lost as it was quite obvious where we were just that you couldn't access the hotel tower from there.

    Caesars can be confusing, but is child's play compared to V/P.

    V/P can be downright scary if you are lost. Around and around, up and down, who knows where you are. The place is beautiful, but the layout? WOW!

    Keep walking and you end up at The Palazzo which seems to have the simplest layout for any casino.
