A fantastic hotel
Last summer, my wife and I went to Las Vegas for a week. We stayed with our friends, Jimmy and Diane, for the first five days, but we stayed at a very special hotel on the Saturday and Sunday nights at the end of our holiday. We booked a suite at the Venetian Resort Hotel on the Las Vegas strip. The Venetian is modern, luxurious, and very big! There are 7,000 rooms and suites in the hotel, and in our suite there were three TVs – one in the bedroom, one in the living room, and one in the bathroom.
You can find everything at the Venetian. It’s a small town! There is a casino in the hotel and there are 17 restaurants. On our first night there we ate at the Bouchon restaurant. It was fantastic – but very expensive! We didn’t go to the casino on Saturday night because we didn’t have any money after we had dinner!
The hotel is really brilliant! There is a small lake near the entrance, and on the fourth floor there are three swimming pools and a spa. We didn’t go swimming but my wife loved the spa. On the second floor, there is a big shopping centre with canals and gondolas. We went on a gondola. I thought I was in Venice!
There are a lot of things to do at the Venetian. You can visit a Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum with statues of famous Hollywood actors. Or you can go to the fantastic nightclub or to one of the theatres. There are three of them! We weren’t interested in visiting the wax museum and we didn’t go dancing, but on Sunday evening we saw a great show at the Blue Man Theatre, and we went to an art exhibition at the hotel’s art gallery.
Example: They stayed in Las Vegas for seven days.
1 In a suite at the Venetian hotel, there are ________ TVs.
2 There are ________ restaurants in the hotel.
3 There is a spa on the ________ floor.
4 You can go on a gondola on the ________ floor.
