Fun Facts

The Venetian & The Palazzo

The Venetian Las Vegas

  • With the addition of The Palazzo to The Venetian, the combined properties have more than 7,000 suites, making this “under one roof” space the largest hotel in the United States.
  • The London Sunday Mail called The Venetian one of the seven “Grandest Hotels in the World.”  In 2014, TripAdvisor named The Venetian the world’s most extraordinarily designed hotel.
  • Combined, The Venetian and Palazzo house more than 2.3 million square feet of meeting space, 1 million square feet of retail space, and more than 30 restaurants.
  • The Venetian lobby features 25-foot-high columns made of solid Botticino marble, imported from Italy.
  • The Venetian Colonnade’s marble floor was hand-fitted and modeled of the floor of the Church of Santa Maria del Rosario in Venice.
  • The Campanile Tower is 315 ft. tall, nearly as tall as the 323-ft. original in Venice.

The Palazzo Las Vegas

  • The Palazzo is 50 stories tall.  There are no 4th, 13th, or 14th floors in the building.
  • The Palazzo is the second tallest building in Nevada at 639.5 feet.  
  • The Palazzo contains 233,000 cubic yards of concrete.  That equals 19,417 fully loaded concrete trucks—enough concrete to build a six-foot wide sidewalk from The Venetian all the way to the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park.
  • The Palazzo features the only two-story porte cochere in Nevada with one level for drop off and another for pick up.
  • With remarkable attention to detail, 70 different types of finishes were used throughout the property. More than 1.8 million sq. ft. (11,000 tons) of stone and marble were used to construct The Palazzo.

The Grand Canal

  • The indoor Grand Canal holds more than 273,000 gallons of water, and the deeper, outdoor canal holds more than 570,000.  Using a standard garden hose for 24 hours a day, it would take 65 days to fill the indoor canal.
  • More than 500,000 visitors ride the gondolas every year.
