Venetian Las Vegas Announces $1.5 Billion Facelift

Plans Call For Renovated Suites, Convention Center, And Poker Room


As the Venetian Resort Las Vegas celebrates the property’s 25th anniversary this year, the casino has announced a $1.5 billion renovation project. The casino will see a complete reimagining, according to management, that will include every aspect of the resort – even a rebrand of The Venetian’s lion logo.

“The Venetian Resort’s innovative spirit has had a massive impact on Las Vegas over the last 25 years and paved the way for our visionary $1.5 billion reinvestment today,” Venetian President and CEO Patrick Nichols said.

“This redevelopment marks more than just a surface-level renovation, it signifies a deep understanding of our guests and a profound reimagining of an iconic resort unlike any other in history. The beauty of this project lies within the balance of the beloved familiar and the never-before-seen.”

A Look At The Plans

The property announced in February that renovation also includes a new poker room. The addition moves the room from 35 tables to 50 in a new 14,000-square-foot space, which will also feature a dedicated livestreaming space.

Venetian officials said the new venue would “push the boundaries of modern poker forward.” The room is expected to be unveiled this summer.

Now the property has outlined some of the additional renovation plans. A major part of that is a complete redesign of the resort’s hotel suites, which remain the largest standard room on The Strip. Available for stays beginning in September 2024, all 4,000 suites in The Venetian towers, will be completely updated.

The new suites are inspired by the traditional ornate costumes of the Venetian Carnival, “infusing energy, spirit, and warmth in a contemporary, fresh design,” according to the company.

Additionally, plans call for new chef-led culinary concepts and additional entertainment options. Gaming areas will also be redeveloped including new offerings in The Palazzo High Limit Lounge, a fully redesigned sportsbook complete with a multi-year naming rights partnership with Yahoo, and an investment of $188 million to renovate the resort’s convention center.
