No. 19 The Venetian, Las Vegas
The most painstakingly detailed of the themed casino resorts, the Venetian is a condensed version of its namesake city and features some of the largest rooms on the Strip, averaging 700 square feet with sunken living rooms and marble baths. Bypass rooms in the newer—but darker—Venezia tower, which opened in 2003, for the renovated suites in the main tower, and be sure to pick up masterful pastries and sticky buns at Bouchon Bakery, near the Phantom of the Opera theater lobby.
