    Hey everyone, we're planning on splitting our 6 nights in April by spending the first 3 in Venetian/Palazzo and the last 3 at Vdara (City Corner Suite, our usual!)

    One reason is to experience a stay to the north of the strip, the other is that an entry level Luxury Suite at Venetian/Palazzo is coming in about $100 cheaper than Vdara.

    Would you go for Venetian or Palazzo? I understand avoiding the Venezia Tower is preferred too...

    Thanks!

    I stayed in the Venetian last year and really loved it. As I understand it, Palazzo rooms are identical to Venetian's, however the property is a little quieter and the rates just a bit higher. If I had to make the choice again I would go with the Venetian.

    If I had a car, definitely Palazzo because of the proximity of the self-parking garage to the room elevators.

    If not, either place.

    I'd take the Venetian. Identical rooms, but the Venetian is more mid-strip than Palazzo. Moreover, I like the Walgreens at the Venetian main entrance. I could be wrong, but I also have the impression that there is more going on at the Venetian than Palazzo. Finally, more bragging rights when you stay at Venetian: Many people know the Venetian, but they have no idea about the Palazzo (at least where I live).

    Thanks guys! Can Venetian guests use the Palazzo pool, and vice versa?

    To be honest, the Palazzo being a bit quieter isn't a problem, that's one of the main reasons we stay at the Vdara - we do like a nice room to come back to and relax in :)

    Palazzo hands down. It's an easy walk between the two properties, and the rooms at Palazzo are nicer. (We like the little things like a wide divider between sections - gives you a place to toss your pocket stuff.) Venetian's casino is larger and has more action, but Palazzo has Grimaldi's for pizza. It is also closer to Wynncore (just over the footbridge) since you want to experience North Strip. Have a drink at Parasol Up. Say hi to Kathy for us.

    I prefer Palazzo, mostly because the restaurants I prefer are on that side and the casino is much nicer and more spacious

    I believe their pools are still connected to each other in a complex with bunch of Hot Tubs. There is also another pool by Bouchon that is more private and has extended hours. It is fantastic!!!!!

    The key question is really what area of the "North Strip" is it you want to explore? If your cutoff is the Wynn, and you want to spend time in Mirage/Caesars/Linq area, then I would opt for Venetian. Palazzo is just added distance to get to anything but the Wynn. If you're planning on staying primarily at V/P and maybe hitting the Wynn then I would go for Palazzo. The extra distance isn't that much, but if you're covering that ground 2-4x a day it gets old.

    That used to be our home casino we loved the Venetian but really loved the Palazzo. The rooms are very much the same but the higher floors in the Palazzo plus the quietness were nice. The good thing is both have a Grand Lux and the walk between the 2 casinos is a breeze. We were just very fortunate that we received high floor with a great view at the Palazzo. Just know you can't go wrong either way and enjoy................Rick

    Having stayed at both properties (v/p and Vdara) for the last 10 years, I can understand why youre asking. I will give you my opinion, but I will give you a description based on the experience you want to have also.

    Although I love the Venetian because of all the reasons stated above, you might like the Palazzo better. The Palazzo is more similar to Vdara in that its quieter and more low key. Also the rooms seem to me a bit more dim and tranquil. The Palazzo is also easier to navigate as its a very simple geometric layout. In addition when you want some action you can walk over to Venetian (which is the equivalent walk from Vdara to Bellagio or Aria). You will be in a more open concept casino with high ceilings and less smoke in the air. Lastly, if you have access to the vip lounge the one inside Palazzo is more up to date.

    Thanks so much everyone! So I've reserved 3 nights in early April (Fri, Sat, Sun) at the Palazzo in a Luxury 1 King Suite @ $190/night, which I thought was a decent price? It's on a free cancellation rate too...

    I might try, for the first time, the $20 trick at check-in too (or maybe $50, given it's the weekend?)

    (and booked a City Corner Suite at Vdara for the following 3 nights @ $180/night, again on a free cancellation and will try the $20 trick again :) )

    Haven't been up there in a couple of trips, but I thought Palazzo was renovating and not all rooms were finished. You might want to check or maybe someone with more recent experience can chime in.

    Just got off the phone with Sheldon. He says they are currently remodeling the largest rooms and will work their way down to the smaller ones later this year.

    He asked something about "delenda est" and if I knew anything about that. I denied everything!

    I think I heard some elder in Caesars Palace ending a speech with it.

    The Strip view at Palazzo is basically a view of TI. We always ask for a golf course view (Wynn's course) and enjoy pulling out chairs up to the window in the afternoon looking east (no sun coming in), opening a bottle of wine, and just relax. Really nice when you can get up to floor 45 or higher.

    You really can't go wrong with either one. Rooms are identical and are spacious and luxurious.

    We try for the other side for the same reason, only for a different view. I like watching the planes take-off and land at McCarran.
