To begin with, the bed was comfortable and the room was dark and quiet which all made for great sleeping, which, at the end of the day (pun intended), is what hotels are for in the first place.
Jumping to checkout - do it on the TV in your room. Otherwise you're competing with front desk attention with the folks who just arrived and want to get checked in.
I checked in and proceeded to my room, only to find that it hadn't been made up from the last guest. I was told to go to a different room on a different floor and that my keycard would be reprogrammed for the new room before I got there. It wasn't. After waiting 15 minutes, I trekked back to the front desk and was ultimately upgraded to a fountain view room on the 11th floor.
It is a beautiful property and the customer service is outstanding. All the staff was genuinely friendly and helpful.
I was astounded at the prices however. Many people seem to think Vegas is cheap. Wrong. I think that ended 20 years ago on the Strip. Think $17 for a glorified Egg McMuffin breakfast sandwich in a carryout bag with a Styrofoam cup of coffee. And this apparently is not unique to the Bellagio, as Caesar's next door and Paris across the street were equally as overpriced, if not more. I'm not cheap by any means, but I had to make a conscious decision to not think about the inflated cost of everything - which was hard to do.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Inspired by the beautiful villages of Europe, AAA Five Diamond Bellagio overlooks a Mediterranean-blue lake in which fountains perform a magnificent ballet choreographed to music and lights. The lobby is, in a word, grand, both in scale and in design. Above the 18-foot ceiling is a coffer filled with the most extraordinary glass masterpiece, Fiori di Como, created by glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, whose work has been exhibited in every major museum in the world. At Bellagio, elegantly appointed accommodations pair modern conveniences with the warmth of home, featuring sweeping vistas of the resort's lake, surrounding mountains and Las Vegas skyline. Discerning guests who book a Penthouse suite are invited to indulge in the luxurious Chairman's Lounge which offers a private registration and concierge experience. Bellagio's restaurants run the gamut from gourmet Five Diamond to casual dining. Food lovers no longer have to go to Paris or New York for the best culinary experiences. Bellagio features a Michelin two star restaurant (Picasso), two Michelin one star restaurants (Le Cirque and MICHAEL MINA Bellagio), two AAA Five Diamond restaurants (Picasso and Le Cirque) and a James Beard award-winning restaurant (Picasso). Bellagio also is home to four James Beard award-winning chefs - Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Todd English, Michael Mina and Nevada's first James Beard award recipient, Julian Serrano. Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge led by Chef Akira Back features seasonal fish and ingredients flown in daily from the finest markets around the world. Bellagio is home to an impressive collection of luxury retailers including Hermes and OMEGA as well as the resort's retail promenade, Via Bellagio, featuring Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Breguet, Prada, Harry Winston, Chanel, Dior, Fendi and Bottega Veneta. A world-class art gallery showcasing annual museum-caliber exhibitions, the exquisite beauty of the lush Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, Cirque du Soleil's stunning performance of "O," an intimate wedding chapel, luxurious spa and salon, dynamic nightlife of The Bank, Hyde Bellagio, Lily Bar & Lounge and an elegant casino add to the symphony that is Bellagio. ... more less
