The Palazzo Las Vegas is adjacent to The Venetian, and the two are sister properties owned by Las Vegas Sands. It opened on December 30, 2007, and after its completion the Palazzo became the largest building in the United States. Its floor space covers 6,948,980 square feet. At 720 square feet, Palazzo also offers the largest standard hotel room on the Las Vegas Strip. If you assume that Venetian and Palazzo are the same resort, it is the largest hotel in the U.S. and second in the world, only behind the Izmailovo Hotel in Moscow.
