Palazzo Spring 2013

Continuing with the Italian theme, when Las Vegas Sands decided to expand their Venetian brand into a sister property next door, they choose to name it Palazzo.  Palazzo, in Italian, simply means Palace.  Earning its grand name, Palazzo is the tallest building in Las Vegas, topping out a 642 stories.  While it is true that Stratosphere is the tallest structure in Vegas, since it isn’t habitable, it isn’t technically considered a building.

Continuing with the concept that bigger is better, Palazzo didn’t stop with just being the tallest building in Vegas.  There 6.9 million square feet replaced the Pentagon as the largest building in the US per square foot.  Palazzo also has the largest standard rooms per square foot on the strip at 720, all suites.

Palazzo's gaming floor uses an open concept that allows you to see virtually every inch of the casino from wherever you are in it.  Unlike many Hi-End properties, it also managed to create an atmosphere that is both luxurious and welcoming.  While Palazzo is a separate building, it operates under the same gaming license as Venetian. The two properties are connected to each other via their indoor shopping promenades.
