The Venetian, which opened in April 1999 – when all construction phases are completed – will be the largest hotel in the world with 6,600 rooms; currently (September 2001) there are over 3,000 rooms. The rooms are not actually just rooms, they are spacious “suites”. And just like the rooms, the Venetian’s claim is in many other things, it has set new standards on the Strip. The theme is the city of Venice and the strip facade already shows the six most famous buildings of the Italian city in replicas (from south to north): the library, the campanile, Palazzo Contarini-Fasan, the Doge’s Palace, the Ca d’Oro and the clock tower. Of course there is also the Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs, as well as the “Grand Canal” with gondolas and gondoliers singing. In our opinion, it is the most successful staging in Europe in Las Vegas, even if the “Italian atmosphere of the original place” is not even close. The illusion is much better in the evening than during the day.

From autumn 2001 the Salomon R. Guggenheim Museum will have a branch in Las Vegas’ Venetian on an exhibition space of around 8,000 square meters. The museum will cooperate permanently with the St. Petersburg Hermitage and will keep a separate wing for this purpose. Collection highlights from both houses are to be presented alternately on 850 square meters. First 40 paintings of Impressionism and early modernism, about half from the Hermitage’s holdings, will be shown (including Robert Delaunay’s “Red Eiffel Tower” and Pausl Cezanne’s Petersburg still life). On October 7th, the larger exhibition section (around 7,000 square meters) was opened with the program “The Art of the Motorcycle”, an exhibition for one year that was already on view in 1998 in the New York headquarters and shows 120 classic “fire chairs” (sponsored from BMW);
- Gondola rides
As already mentioned, the “Grand Canal” can be navigated by taking a seat in a Venetian gondola and the gondolier singing. The Americans are evidently enthusiastic, but for those who know Venice, the short gondola ride with short singing at the predetermined location is more of a joke and not even remotely comparable, leisurely sightseeing.

One of the most beautiful establishments of this type that we know.

The newest theme hotel in Las Vegas (former name: Le Reve) has been built on the site of the former Desert Inn, which was acquired by Steve Wynn in 2000. After the Bellagio, which opened in 1998, this is the second hotel building by hotel tycoon Steve Wynn. The new 45-story resort with 2,716 rooms, none smaller than 58 square meters, is dominated by a large lake and a glass tower that rises 156 meters above the Strip. The construction cost was $ 2.7 billion. The topic of “water” is omnipresent. In the entrance hall, a Maserati dealer is soliciting affluent customers. The hotel has the only 18-hole casino golf course in town. There is an elaborate art museum with pieces from Wynn’s personal collection – including the famous painting “Le Reve” by Pablo Picasso.

The acrobatic show with a focus on water was originally intended to be performed twice a day, but was initially reduced to once due to a lack of demand. The reviews are rather reserved.

In 2006, one year after the opening of the Wynn Hotel, construction work began on the adjacent Encore Wynn Las Vegas, which opened on December 22, 2008. The new resort has 2,034 suites and is 2 stories higher (192.3 m) than the Wynn. There are 5 restaurants and several lounges and bars as well as a wellness center and beauty salon.
The suites have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Strip, the pool, or downtown. They are at least 65 square meters and offer separate sleeping and living areas. Large flat screen TVs can be rotated so that they can be seen from both the bedroom and living room. The beds should have particularly high and comfortable mattresses and pillows. Gourmet minibars, in-room safes, bathrobes and slippers are standard amenities. The highlight of the hotel is a lavishly designed outdoor pool, in which “topless” swimming (“European style”) is allowed. There is a second pool on the hotel grounds. The casino covers around 9,300 square meters and is flooded with daylight. Play areas in the form of small salons are intended to create a more intimate atmosphere.
