Venetian or Palazzo or does it matter?

    I've stayed at Venetian once, the room was wonderful and huge.

    I know the Palazzo is newer and the rooms are slightly bigger.

    Is there anything that would make me want to choose one over the other? Price is the same for the night I'm looking at. I'm taking the wife to see Rock Of Ages.

    Thanks!

    I prefer the palazzo. It's quieter and less crowded which is a plus to me. Parking is easier.

    I don't mind the walk between the two, but if there are more things you want to see or do in one over the other, keep that in mind

    One factor I consider - which I've seen discussed here in the past, but may or may not matter - is the scent in Venetian. Whatever they pump in there gives my wife a migraine headache... I notice it as stronger than other casinos but it doesn't affect me as much. She can tolerate Palazzo, as it is either different or not as strong... but she can't step foot in the Venetian because of this.

    If I had a choice, I'd probably go with Palazzo because it's a little bit newer... I went in on my trip last month and I was really blown away at how CLEAN it was, and how great and upscale everything looks. I also agree with the parking, it's a little bit easier there.

    But yea, do remember. The compound of the two is so freaking massive, it's a huge hike over to the Venetian..

    If one is cheaper than the other choose that one.

    Location could be a small issue. Depends how much time you will be heading out to strip, southbound.

    This will be the first time I get away with my wife for a night since our son was born, he just turned two. We'll just be in town for the night, driving in from central California after dropping the boy off with the in laws (we're from Silicon Valley). So no strip wandering for us.

    I've done a bunch of quickie solo trips since our son was born but the wife's never been up for leaving him. Come to think of it I'll be surprised if she actually joins me this time :)

    Anyways, thanks for your help. Confirmed for Palazzo day after Christmas. Show tickets confirmed through Ticketmaster. I bought lower orchestra side section, first two seats on the aisle. so it's still basically center, with a sixty dollar savings per ticket.

    Carnevino for dinner, does anyone know the story with the 6 month aged steak? Do you need to request those in advance or are those normally stocked?

    If the price is the same then I highly recommend Palazzo. Rooms are newer and feels more "luxurious".

    When I stay at V/P, I prefer gambling on the Venetian side. I play a lot of craps and it just feels much better. Although nice, Palazzo feels a bit sterile. No noise or excitement.

    On a slightly off topic note, I've also found the Venezia side of Venetian was very enjoyable. Rooms are the same but I felt the service was much better. From the lobby clerks to the room service folks, I got the feeling that they were more friendly.

    I prefer the Venetian because I can't win a damn thing in the Palazzo casino.

    When I had the rib eye, it was not on the menu. It was actually only offered after I mentioned I was in town for a special birthday. I'm sure if I knew about it ahead of time and asked for it the offer would have been there too.

    If you want to guarantee a "Riserva" steak, call ahead - also, be prepared they cost upwards of $100 - but if you love dry-aged steak, there's nothing else like it:licklips:
