The age old debate continues!

You'll get plenty of comments about both. I can't say anything about Bellagiom, ever stayed there but we loved our stay at the Venetian. Flat screen TV in bathroom, our tub was a jacuzzi but we were in the concierge level, so I don't know if it was different. Beds were very comfortable too. Very luxurious in all respects. We also preferred the Venetian's ambience in general to Bellagio, but we came very close to booking them at the time. The only deciding factor for us, was there was more to do in the Venetian and we preferred their selection of restaurants. But the view in Bellagio are much better, there is no arguing that.

Six of one, half a dozen of another! Just personal preference. Both are wonderful, but I bet more people will say Bellagio.

I have stayed in The Hotel and the Venetian (Venezia tower). My personal view is that the Venetian "suite" was a step down from The Hotel suite. The Hotel is newer with just slightly nicer amenities in the rooms. You may want to try the Bellagio.

I agree wth Lambkin. They are both excellent (luxurius) properties. Stay in the one that gives you the best deal. Rooms in the Venetian are larger and all suites (650 sq.ft.)


Bellagio - <http://www.bellagio.com/> - Rating: Five star - Unique features: A world class luxury resort overlooking a magnificent 8-acre lake in front that features a periodic choreographed water-ballet. The Fountains at Bellagio attract thousands of sightseers. Located at the famous four corners of the Las Vegas Strip.

Luxurious marble lobby with unbelievable Italian glass sculptures on ceiling. Inside there is a lovely conservatory and botanical garden filled with gorgeous flowers and plants that are changed seasonally. Each new display costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to create.

Adult-oriented; no one under 18 is allowed on the property unless they are staying at the hotel -- and families with children are encouraged to find lodging elsewhere.

Check-in time is 3 p.m., check-out time is noon. Hotel built in 1998 and renovated in 2004. The Bellagio is one of only two hotels on the Strip with a five-diamond rating from AAA. Service, as you might expect, is top-notch.

Rooms: The $2 billion Italian-themed Bellagio now has more than 4,000 rooms that offer views of the mountains, the Strip, or the pool. Each with a hair dryer, lighted make-up mirrors, iron and board, safe, designer toiletries and more. One king bed or two queen beds with reading lights, premium bedding ...bathrobes. The deluxe (lower priced) rooms are 510 square feet.

Amenities: Six outdoor pools, two heated year-round. Bellagio also features “O”, an incredible water-acrobatics show from Cirque du Soleil. The Via Bellagio shopping area features ultra-expensive stores such as Tiffany, Armani, Gucci, Prada, Hermès, and the like. There is also a tram that operates between the Bellagio and the Monte Carlo Hotel.

Dining: Many first class (and expensive) restaurants and the best (also the most expensive) buffet in Las Vegas. Open until 4 p.m. Sunday, Bellagio's champagne brunch is a great way to start out your vacation.

Casino: Large 125,000 sq. ft. casino has 2,700 slot machines, 140 gaming tables, and 30 poker tables ...and more.

Cost: Expensive, and worth it. But, believe it or not, there are reasonably priced vacation packages available if you happen to hit it right.


Venetian - <http://www.venetian.com/> - Rating: Five Star - Unique features: This $1.5 billion 3,000 room mega-resort (opened 1999) is an exquisite replica of the Italian city of Venice complete with St. Mark's Square. A terrific place to people watch. You can even ride gondolas on the Grand Canal piloted by singing gondoliers. Beautiful Italian influenced paintings and frescos decorate the ceiling and walls. The new Venezia Tower adds another 1,000 rooms. Arguably the best hotel in Las Vegas, but its location is at the upper far end of the center strip.

Rooms: The Venetian is novel in that it has only suites, each measuring at least 650 square feet, the largest standard rooms in Las Vegas. The standard suites have a king size bed, a sunken living room, and a large bathroom finished in fine Italian marble with separate shower/bathtub, hair dryer ...and more.

Amenities: A rooftop, five-acre terrace includes two huge pools ...heated in the winter. Another pool is in the new Venezia tower (opened 2003). “The Grand Canal Shoppes” upscale mall plaza (about a one-quarter mile long) has more than a hundred of the world’s most exclusive retailers.. Madame Tussaud's first U.S. wax museum and a branch of the Guggenheim Art Museum is near the entrance. The Venetian is a recipient of the Exxon/Mobile Four Star Award and AAA’s Four Diamond Award.

Dining: Seventeen superb world-class restaurants including Chef Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio and Chef Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse . Unlike most Las Vegas hotels, the Venetian does not have a buffet.

Casino: The 120,000 square foot gaming floor has some 2,500 slot machines, 120 table games, and a race and sports book.

Cost: Usually more than $125 a night ....and this is the deeply discounted rate. That’s if you can find it. This hotel enjoys very high customer satisfaction. A wonderful place to stay.

This has not been my experience so far. I posted a topic saying I was worried about staying at the Bellagio with kids.

I finally telephoned the hotel this morning about my worries, I had my bellagio suite upgraded to a Penthouse for only 25 dollars a day. They were most concerned about the negative view of the Bellgio. Yes they don't want people wandering in with their kids in tow, but they are not actively discouraging familes from staying in the Bellagio!
