Bellagio Las Vegas Hotel Review 2017

Bellagio is a luxury resort, hotel and casino located on the strip that popped up in the late 1990s after the Dunes hotel and casino was closed and demolished. Inspired by an Italian town of the same name, Bellagio is owned by MGM Grand and is considered up there among the leading hotels in the world.

Guests to the Bellagio can choose between the Main Tower and Spa Tower, with over 3,900 rooms in total. The Main Tower is the original tower, although it was remodeled in 2011. A big highlight of this hotel is the Fountains of Bellagio – a huge, moving water fountain that is synchronized to music and situated out front of the hotel in an eight acre man-made lake. Aside from stunning architecture and the water show, Bellagio is home to the Cirque du Soleil’s aquatic show called O.

The Room & Suite Selection

The Bellagio offers a wide selection of rooms ranging from regular (albeit luxurious) hotel suites right through to huge villas with their own private terrace and pool. Work your way through the options below and pay attention to the rooms on higher floors that face out toward the famous Fountains of Bellagio for unbeatable views of the choreographed dancing fountains unique to The Bellagio in Las Vegas.

For guests that have booked certain suites at the Bellagio, it’s possible to use the Chairman’s Lounge during check-in which offers a private experience away from the hustle and bustle of the regular lobby. Check-in via the Chairman’s Lounge is generally reserved for guests in a Penthouse or higher, but those with a good relationship with their host may be able to use this as an option on arrival.

The lounge is open daily from 7am – 9pm and features a variety of amenities from business services to transportation arrangements, line passes, preferred reservations and VIP access to nightclubs, shows and restaurants.
