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
Extremely expensive, I've been to Vegas 2 dozen times, never stayed here, and wow the hotel rooms are run down, socks from previous guests on the floor, hair brush from previous guest in the bathroom. Rooms upon checking in, not really clean and fir the price, I expect at least that. I wouldn't stay here again, 5$ cups or coffee and 31$ for a coffee and sandwiches in the cafe. Gift shop offers small bottles of water for 5$ too, all a little extreme. On the positive side, fountains are great and staff are friendly. Do yourself a favor stay somewhere else and come to see the fountains.
The bathroom drain was clogged and had to be unclogged by service personnel at night when we were settling in. The safe's battery was low and had to be replaced. I was charged for Refreshments which we never touched. When I returned home, I called to questioned this charge ($17.75) and hotel rep had an attitude towards me complaining that I or my adult son had touched an item on the top snack tray, which was not true. She did remove the amount, but I was incorrectly charged and accused of receiving or touching a snack item. My wife and I were guest at your Hotel in August 2018 and had a problem with the shower drain as well. I don't think, as a guest, that I should be the one identifying maintenance problems within the hotel.
Just got back from a 4 night stay at the Bellagio. This was our second time here, after having stayed at the Mirage in the past. Due to the rodeo, we did not want to be at the Mirage, as it is cowboy central.The Bellagio is a very nice experience, especially if you get a high floor fountain view room, as you can see the sunrise over the mountain, and the beauty of the strip at night (although we looked at it thru a filthy glass window. There are no cheaper tables, so you have to go elsewhere for a $5 black jack or let it ride tables. We usually head to NYNY or the Linq. And the front desk seems very rule oriented, like they are hard pressed to give a later check out - even til 1:00. Unless you pay $40. Most upscale hotels will let you stay if the room is available. That was a turn off. But housekeeping, valets, etc were all very helpful.
We had never been to the Bellagio, so everything was unique. We had rooms on the 25 floor center, over the water show. The lake was beautiful and we left the TV on so when it started playing music, we could look out the window and enjoy the choreographed show.
The rooms are very quiet and comfortable, with a very nice large restroom and sitting area.
If you pick up anything on the snack tray or move the items, it triggers a sensor and automatically charges your room. So be careful to examine your bill or you may end up paying for things that you didn't use.
The casino is nice but expensive; some of the minimum bets can be high at certain tables. Drinks are free and it's a fun place to visit. Conveniently close to the Miracle Mile where show venues and other entertainment abound.
We joined M Club which will give you free parking if you are at the second level from winning the tables, so it's more incentive to do well.
Always love staying here. Parking easy and accessible to registration desk. Room ready when we got there. Impressed with service the first night in our room. Bed had two robes with slippers, tv on and turned to a relaxing aquarium. And two chocolates on the nightstand. Very inviting. Thank you!
