At the 2012 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV, attendees will now be able to use Google Maps on their Android devices to help them find their way in the sea of exhibitors and attractions throughout the Las Vegas Convention Center, select resorts and casinos along the Las Vegas strip, as well as the Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.
Since November of last year, you’ve been able to use Google Maps in select places to get detailed floor plans and indoor location information within a few meters, as well as an accurate floor level location. Today, we’ve expanded the list of places with indoor maps by partnering with MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment and others, to provide indoor maps for Caesars Palace, Bellagio, The Venetian, The Palazzo, MGM Grand and many more.
We hope that these indoor maps will come in handy when finding your way through the slots and to the shops.

Complete with firecrackers and an eye painting ceremony, the dance will begin at The Venetian porte cochere, and then make its way through The Palazzo. The colorful spectacle will feature a parade of dancers and musicians dressed in elaborate costumes playing authentic music.

This winter, The Venetian and The Palazzo, the world’s largest Five Diamond resorts, have magically transformed into a majestic winter wonderland. Winter in Venice is our celebration of the winter season on the Las Vegas Strip.
From November 21 through January 8, when you visit The Venetian, you’ll be greeted by colorful characters wandering the property, spreading good cheer. You’ll be surrounded by charming string lights, brilliantly lit trees and festive music. Enjoy making your rounds on the largest ice skating rink on the Strip, made of recyclable polymer and requiring no refrigeration or electricity, making for environmentally friendly holiday revelries that complement The Venetian and The Palazzo’s green initiatives.
And as the sun sets, you’ll be dazzled by the “Nightly Holiday Spectacular” light show performance. As the music crescendos, a stunning angel gracefully appears from the Rialto Bridge and lights the 65-foot holiday tree across the way, making it a must-see nightly attraction.
Be sure to stop by the waterfall, atrium and gardens at The Palazzo to admire hand-designed snowflakes suspended midair, ice branches and 20-foot frosted birch, pine and glittering trees, majestic hand-crafted white and pearl peacock statues. The winter gardens also feature red beaded ornaments, pinecones and fresh poinsettias. Enjoy seasonal treats, like eggnog cupcakes, warm apple cider and delicious hot chocolate throughout both properties. There are all kinds of festive surprises in store at what’s sure to become your new, favorite holiday tradition: Winter in Venice. I’ll close with a video of our winter celebration.
