The Guinness Book of World Records lists the Venetian and Palazzo combination as the largest hotel in the world, with just over 7,000 rooms. And with the Grand Canal Shoppes and Venetian Convention Center bringing even more visitors in, you can see why the Venetian has such a humongous parking garage. Best of all, parking at the Venetian is completely free!
In this article, we’re talking strictly about the Venetian Hotel and Casino’s parking area only, as Palazzo parking is separate, and in a different area further away from the Venetian.
For its part, the Venetian itself has 4,034 rooms, making it the third biggest hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Guests staying here (and casino patrons not staying at the hotel), use the resort’s 14 story parking garage located to the south and west of the main part of the hotel and casino. The structure is very large, and it’s a long meandering maze to get from your parking spot to inside the resort.
Once in the parking garage, access to the hotel and casino is through a walkway found on the 3rd level. There are elevators of course, to take you to this level.
As I said, it’s quite a haul from the parking garage to your room at the Venetian Las Vegas. I haven’t measured it myself, but one person reported a walk of 20 minutes from car to hotel room door. I can’t vouch for that, however as massive as the Venetian/Palazzo/ and Convention Center complex is, I don’t doubt that figure for a minute.
Venetian Parking Garage Fee
While almost every other hotel and casino along the Las Vegas Strip has introduced paid parking, parking at the Venetian is free to everyone.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a hotel guest, or not, anyone can park at the Venetian’s parking garage free of charge. The Venetian remains one of the few resorts left to offer free parking on Las Vegas Strip.
Venetian Parking Map & Directions
(The purple marker is the Strip entrance to the Venetian parking garage. The green marker is the back entrance.)
There are two ways to access the self-parking garage at the Venetian Hotel and Casino:
1) From the Strip.
2) From the back of the hotel.
From the Strip (Purple marker on map)
Whether you’re going north or south on Las Vegas Boulevard, you’ll turn into the only street that goes into the Venetian. (Another street goes into the Palazzo, but ignore this one). The street leading to the Venetian is unnamed, but you’ll know the street when you see it, as it is by the little lake out in front of the resort.
Once on it, you’ll pass under Rialto Bridge (a pedestrian bridge that leads people from the Strip into the casino). A little bit past the bridge, you’ll see signs pointing you to the self-parking garage, accessible from the right hand lane.
From the Back of the Hotel (Green marker on map)
This is the easier, faster way, in my view, as you don’t have to battle the never-ending parade of pedestrians who make it difficult for cars to make right hand turns onto Strip hotels.
To access the parking garage, you’ll want to take Koval Lane, which is a busy street that runs parallel to the Strip, behind all of the resorts.
You’ll want to west off of Koval Lane onto Krueger, although I believe there still aren’t signs naming it. Either way, there are signs telling pointing you to the Venetian parking lot. For reference though, you’ll be turning onto this street right under the Las Vegas Monorail tracks. The Wynn employee parking garage will be on the east, and you’ll want to go in the opposite direction, to the west, towards the Strip.
Once on Kreueger, stay in the right lane, as the left lane will take you to Harrah’s Las Vegas parking garage. The right lane will shortly led you to the Venetian self-parking garage, which again, is well marked. You’ll take a right into the garage.
Venetian Valet Parking
Recently the Venetian implemented a valet parking fee. It is as follows:
|7 Days a Week||$35 per day|
This fee applies to hotel guests and non-guests alike.
There are two valet parking stands at the Venetian. Both are near the self-parking garage entrances, so they’ll be easy to spot.
Both are accessible off of the Strip. The main valet is found just after you go under the Rialto Bridge. You’ll see the circle and valet parking stand on your left.
The other valet parking stand is the accessible from the Strip, and from behind the resort, when you are coming towards the Venetian from Koval Lane. If coming in from the Koval, you’ll be driving towards the Strip on Krueger Drive. The far right-hand lane will lead you to the valet, which here, is located on the 3rd level.
Please note that this 3rd level valet, (also sometimes called the “mall valet” has limited hours: 8 AM to Midnight. The main front valet is open 24 hours a day.
Valet Parking Process
You’ll receive a ticket barcode when arriving.
When retrieving your car, you can go to the valet stand in front of the hotel, or the one on the third level of the garage.
Either way, you will scan y our ticket at one of the valet parking kiosks.
Grand Canal Shoppes Parking
There is not a separate parking area designated for shoppers going to the Grand Canal Shoppes.
Instead, guest use the same 14 story parking garage guests staying at the Venetian use. Alternatively, you could use the 5 story underground self-parking garage at the Palazzo, which is accessible off of the Strip, just a few feet north of the lake in front of the Venetian.
If you are heading for the Grand Canal Shoppes and want to valet instead of suffering the long walk from garage to shops, you can quickly do so at the back entrance to the parking garage off of Koval Lane. (Using the front valet by the strip results in a much longer walk to the shops).

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at the Venetian
There are seven electric vehicle charging stations in this garage total. They are free and located as follows:
3rd Floor/Valet: Three GE WattStations and one Tesla Model S Station.
6th Floor: Three dual port ChargePoint stations. These are located near the elevators.

- When the nearby convention and meeting space by the Palazzo is packed, the Venetian parking garage acts as overflow for the Venetian Convention & Expo Center parking.
- For poker players, there is a dedicated parking area on the 5th level of the garage. As you drive into this level, it will on the right hand corner.
