On the far corner of the quaint little lakeside village of Bellagio, the building is quite imposing yet inviting. The reception area lacks some style and reception was not quite as friendly and efficient as one would expect in such a place. The room also seemed somewhat dated and offered little charm and virtually no view. All this sit uncomfortably in the rest of the hotel that is graced by a smart sweeping stairway in its centre and an almost cathedral like breakfast room. One feels that it would take little effort to upgrade the room and reception area for have the same luxury feel as the rest and wonders why this is so sadly neglected.
All in all, having made peace with the downside, the stay was pleasurable and the breakfast was reasonably good if one could excuse the fact that the attendants, even under supervision of a self-important supervisor, did nothing to make one feel welcome - we had to fetch our own cutlery and had a strange experience when we asked for fresh coffee: the waiter then first emptied the cold coffee from the pot into our cups and went off to fetch the hot coffee.
Sadly, there was nothing exceptional about a hotel that is so beautifully located.
