Patterned after the opulent villas that line Italy’s glitzy Lake Bellagio, expect high ceilings, exposed marble, and art at every turn, both permanent displays and rotating gallery shows. Unlike many Vegas casino hotels where gaming spreads throughout, the Bellagio is broken into discreet pieces: the lobby, spa, garden and high end shops are on one side, and a passageway of top restaurants and shops leading to Caesars Palace is at the other. The casino is in between in the center, fronted by a row of top restaurants and the fountains and backed by the pool complex, making it one of the easiest properties to learn and navigate.
Bed & Bath
Guestrooms were all recently renovated and vary in style by tower: some are themed on the lobby garden and conservatory, some are more purely Mediterranean with marble and pale tones, and some are contemporary with sleek polished wood and metal furniture. Most have small marble tiled entryways and bold geometric patterns in the carpet and wallpaper, and every room type features upgraded bathrooms with Italian marble soaking tubs and glass enclosed shower stalls. Luxe touches include cashmere pillows, plush cotton towels and custom bath products. On a more practical level, the renovation added handy data and power connectivity panels to the desks, iPod docking stations, laptop safes in the nightstand and power-saving LED lighting.
The Bellagio has always been a leader in fine dining, and introduced the now common concept of cloning famed restaurants from other cities with a branch of Boston’s Olives (Todd English) and outposts of both Le Cirque and Osteria Circo from New York. Celebrity chefs including Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Michael Mina also have haute eateries. Fix, a casual American bistro, is a local’s favorite, rare for any Strip hotel eatery. The Bellagio is equally at the top of its game with nightclubs and bars: from The Bank to the lively Lily Lounge’s cocktail program. Even the resident Cirque du Soleil show, O, is groundbreaking with its high tech, all water aquatic stage. And while every hotel has gaming, the Bellagio rules poker with famous pros holding forth on a near-nightly basis.
In the Area
A big appeal of the location is access to the best of the surrounding properties: right next door and connected by skybridge is Caesars Palace. Get tickets for its raunch variety (adult only) show, Absinthe. The Forum Shops at Caesars are the best casino mall in town, and more upscale retail therapy can be found at the newer Crystals in City Center, directly linked to the Bellagio by tram. Another skybridge leads to non-descript Bally’s whose one important highlight is the long legendary Sunday champagne brunch complete with caviar bar. As part of the MGM resorts family, guests of the Bellagio have access to MGM’s otherwise private Shadow Creek Golf Club, the only course in Vegas ranked in the nation’s top 10.
How to Get There
My son and I were fortunate enough to stay in the 2 bedroom penthouse suite. I cannot tell you how fantastic this acccommodation was! It was luxury personified. The beds were amazing and the suite had 5 bathrooms!! Each bedroom has its own shower bathroom as well as a spa bath bathroom too. The views over the mountains were breathtaking. The private check in and elevators were most welcome. The staff were amazing and couldn’t do enough for us. I would definitely recommend staying here again. In fact, I’m planning to go back in November this year to celebrate my son’s milestone birthday - can’t wait!
We were there for business meeting, prompt check in. with upgrade for 25 dollars. the pool is one of best on the strip with plenty of seats and prompt drink service. Food was fantastic, but pricy. Picasso was one of best meals and experiences ever. worth every penny. location in middle of strip is convenient. Will definitely be back
I've stayed here multiple times. The hotel is great. Rooms are great, many great restaurants good location in the middle of the trip. What ruined the trip is a subpar sports betting app. The app takes a while to setup through the one window that can set you up plus allow you to get your funds. Getting money in is relatively simple. Getting money out is impossible. Try another books app.
Room was not up to standard. Shower leaked water all over the bathroom floor because seal around shower door was broken. Electronic shades were broken and bed sheets were dirty. Front desk staff was not helpful. I was promised a fridge for my medication because they would not let me put the medication in the mini-fridge and I never received the fridge. I asked housekeeping about the shades but nothing was ever done about the problem. The Bellagio is not worth the money.
Fantastic ambience and location. The fountain show is beautiful, short but lovely. When I was there they used Celine Dion music. Lots of restaurants, bars, art gallery and very elegant Casino. Lines to check out are very long.
