The Prima suite in the Venetian is one of the most interesting suites that I have stayed in. This 1500 sqft room is a great room filled with the usual list of features but falls short when it comes to decor and overall suite value. The room has an older Vegas feel to it and unlike the Bellagio the Venetian’s Prima Suite just falls flat. The furniture is the type that you would find at your grandmothers home not a 5 diamond resort. Even though this room is considered the top suite on the Venetian’s website (when I stayed) it doesn’t feel like it should be. The suite is large and fits three people well, the couch does open up in some of the units and is a sleeper. The wet bar was large but lacked any real bar amenities like an ice machine and refrigerator. The Bellagio and Aria hotels both have ice machines and a refrigerator to use separate from the mini fridge. This is a tiny issue but one that is a problem when you book such an expensive suite. One of the better parts of the room was the view which boasts massive floor to ceiling windows in the living room and bedroom. The shower is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. The bathroom is 200sqft most of which is the shower. You could literally fit an entire Cirque show in the Venetian shower. It has two shower heads if you feel like having a party and is mega over-sized. The tub is so large you could sleep on the bench inside. It is so big that you have to turn on the other shower head just to keep it warm while in the shower. For those that love soaking tubs this room has one for you. The tub is surrounded by mirrors which is very Vegas and very tacky, but after a while they are ok. The price was not too bad for a 5 diamond resort but you can definitely get more for you money elsewhere. So before you stay at the Venetian you have to ask yourself what are you looking for in a room. Do you like modern furniture and comfort or more old fashioned yet elegant. Take a look at this guided tour by fellow 702Guide blogger Chris Sawyer. Please forgive the video, I had to cut the living room out because it was too dark to see anything. Refer to the photos below the video for the living room and outside view from the room. This room will take care of all your needs if you are just looking for a nice suite for the family. If you enjoy more modern decor then I would not suggest the Prima suite at the Venetian. Some people say, a room is just for sleeping, but I disagree. A nice room can enhance your trip and turn it into a great memory.
