History:

Bellagio might still very well be THE standard bearer for high-falutin 'spensiveness and hoity-toit. Built on the historic location where The Dunes stood for thirty-something years, Steve Wynn needed to wow when displacing such a historic property. His vision: bring the luxury, pile it on and smear some more around the sides and back. The 36 story Bellagio opened in 1998 at a price tag of $1.6 bajillion dollars. Yikes! To put it into perspective Bellagio would have to make a just shy of a 1/2 million dollars a day profit for 10 years to make this back. Bellagio opened a new hotel tower - the Spa Tower - in 2004.

Bellagio won multiple awards in the 2013 Trippies readers poll including Best Casino, Best Poker, Best Dice and more.



The Real Deal on Bellagio:

Buyer beware - all MGM Resorts properties charge the highest resort fees (nearly $40/night) plus a $10 per day fee to self-park your car. VegasTripping suggests you find alternate accommodations.
The saying goes: "If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it." A number of years ago, we would've just left it at that. Nowadays, with Bellagio aging its way down the resort pecking order from a five star king of the mountain the time has come to question Bellagio's stance as luxury standard bearer and see it for what it is - to slightly milfy but still dangerous young cougar. The hotel was completely renovated in 2012, but unfortunately little can be done about the small footprint of these once luxurious digs. This is one of the only structural faults in the Bellagio experience, which has been slightly modernized but still retains vintage Italian charm as well as an impeccable array of dining, entertainment and gaming options.


The Casino at Bellagio

Table games include, Caribbean Stud, PaiGow, PaiGow Tiles, Let It Ride, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Three Card Poker, Big Six, and Baccarat. The Bellagio Race & Sports Book is worth seeing even if you don't place any bets. The Bellagio poker room "Bobby's Room" named after MGM executive and WSOP Bracelet winner Bobby Baldwin is where the REAL high limit action takes place in Vegas, take a peek in the window and you'll see the biggest poker game in the world right before your eyes.


The Rooms at Bellagio

There was a day when the name Bellagio was synonymous with luxury and to many Vegas tourists it still is. Until the opening of Wynn Las Vegas, the guest rooms at Bellagio - including the Bellagio King and Bellagio Queen - were some of the finest rooms in Las Vegas. Recent renovations at the property have upgraded the threadbare furnishings to shiny new, albeit modern stuff. Check out our many reviews of Bellagio's new hotel room offerings:

The Restaurants at Bellagio

Bellagio has a ton of great restaurants all of which require or suggest you make a reservation. Service, food and menu are all superb and the check will probably scare you unless you don't care about things like money.

Fine dining options include Le Cirque for French, Circo (Tuscan cuisine), Jasmine (Hunan, Cantonese, and Szechuan), Prime Steakhouse (one of, if not THE best steakhouse in Vegas), Picasso, Michael Mina seafood joint and Yellowtail a sushi restaurant/night club.

Casual dining options include FIX restaurant and bar, Noodles, Todd English's Olives and Sensi. Oh, and they have a Buffet and Cafe also.

Don't forget to check out the Jean Philippe Patisserie for cookies, crepes, chocolate and other sweetness.

Gorgeous inside and out. Wonderful restaurant selection (Le Cirque is one of the best in Vegas). Great service. One of the best pools in Vegas (plenty of options, plenty of shade, beautiful). Fantastic attractions/entertainment that never get old ("O", Fountains, Conservatory). The room design shows it's age (no automatic blinds, no wall-to-wall window, etc), but the romantic style keeps everything comfortable and nostalgic. Crowded with tourists, but for good reason.

Still the classiest place in town. Wynn peaked with Bellagio and Wynncore is just a sad old mans failed attempt to outdo his masterpiece - Bellagio! Wynn fanboys shit on the way MGM runs the place but it's been #1 for over 13 years & Wynn only ran it for 18months so the MGM folks must be doing something right.

Bellagio is a real classic - the blown-glass in the lobby will undoubtedly make this the nicest hotel lobby ever, the conservatory is a wonderful feature, and of course the lake is inimitable. The casino is only okay though, the nightclub is awful, food isn't as good as it should be (Cafe Bellagio has declined and most of the fine restaurants are overrated, especially Picasso) and then there's the hotel. These rooms simply have nothing to recommend them at their price point (note my last stay was pre the recent room refresh). Its a pity, this place deserves to be pulling down the full 6.

I love the Bellagio because it holds a special place in my heart (awwwwww). It is the location where my wife and I were married. It was by far the most special trip I've ever had. Walking through the casino with the photographers in our wedding garb was so much fun. People were clapping, taking photos, stopping and watching. It's the closest you can get to being a celebrity for a day.

We set out to take photos on the terrace of the Fontana in front of the fountains. As we walked out, everyone who was seated stood up and started clapping for us. Really cool feeling. The fountains started going off and the photos started flying.

We've always had amazing stays on this property. Regardless of people saying that "It's showing its age." or "It's not like how Steve used to run it." It's always been top notch.

I highly recommend Prime Steakhouse. Easily one of the best fillets I've ever had the please of eating in my life and the service was perfection. Call ahead, request a set on the patio or by the windows at night...drink wine and watch the fountains. Unreal.

To really experience Las Vegas, it's imperative that you visit the Bellagio--and stay there, if you can. In a lot of ways, it's a Las Vegas institution. Rooms are nice, though a bit long in the tooth and in need of some renovations.

It's a great place to walk around and people watch. Can't beat its location--center strip. The property, itself, is huge. Taking a cab (or limo) from the airport to the entrance of Bellagio is a really neat experience.

My Rating: 6 StudiodeKadent posted on 19th September 2010 :

A Vegas Institution; always popular and crowded but for understandable reason. It feels a bit "social-climbey" ("see and be seen") but in spite of that the place has great food, drink, atmosphere and gaming. Picasso, Petrossian and Olives are all great places to dine and get wasted. Hyde Lounge is very relaxed, tasteful, and fits in well with the joint. Club Prive has a great bar, and the dealers and pit crew have always been very friendly to this rambling alcoholic freak. And the table games conditions are the best value in Vegas (as of late 2013 to 2014). Sure, it's a bit pretentious, but no one can deny the quality.

The heart of the strip and the resort that put luxury on the map. Even though Steve Wynn no longer owns or runs it, there is enough pride in the employees working here that they still deliver consistently good service.

She's a beaut, Clark. I've never stayed here, and I have no idea why. I love the fountains, the conservatory, the Chihuly flower sculpture...classy place. Great restaurants. Hmm, maybe it's because MGM never seems to throw me anything approaching a decent comp for this place. Bummer.

My Rating: 6 Rgiffen2 posted on 10th August 2010 :

The original class act in Vegas. The conservatory is always amazing, its a floral oasis in the desert. I love the fresh and real floral scent, much better than the piped in smell at the Venetian. The buffet used to be better, it lacks atmosphere. The cafe has tons of atmosphere and slower than slow service, but good food. Gasp at the prices of a glass of OJ! The rooms were much prettier before they decided to give them the brown/beige vibe. The casino could use some newer slots that people like to play.

My Rating: 5 VegasSolo posted on 24th July 2010 :

Without a doubt, this is the nicest hotel I've stayed at in Las Vegas. I love everything about it--the restaurants, the Fontana Lounge, the lakeview rooms, the conservatory, the fountain show, you name it.

Ah, Bellagio... The one & only. The Belle of the Ball. The pride & joy of Steve Wynn, and of Las Vegas.


Ah, how times have changed these last 12 years. The rooms are drabby and showing their age. There are numerous cracks in the marble at Via Bellagio. The casino just isn't what it used to be.


But you know what? There's just something about Bellagio that won't let it die. The grandeur remains, no matter how faded it may seem at times. The high-rollers still pack the casino. The gourmands still fall over each other (and rightly so!) for the murderers' row of great restaurants here. And the well-heeled still enjoy the still mighty suites. This carpet joint has real staying power.


Now if only MGM Mirage would FINALLY get to renovating the place...

I know it's getting old, but I can't dislike this place. When it first opened, I thought it was the best casino on the strip, and a part of me still does. I think no matter how much opens around it, I'll always dig this place. The restaurants, the customer service, the classic fountain show - all of it is top notch.

High falutin' top of the Vegas world. This place has it all. Watch Bond-like action in the Baccarat room or play next to some of the kindest snobs you'll meet at the tables. Catch the fountain show and the conservatory display and remind yourself of what made Steve Wynn great to begin with. The rooms need a makeover though, nice and roomy but the only place without standard flat panel TVs. The lakeview rooms make up for it with a HiDef view of the Fountains.

My Rating: 5 JohnH posted on 30th August 2009 :

The first truly luxury property I stayed at in Las Vegas, Bellagio was once my vision of the epitome of Las Vegas. Then Wynn opened. Previous stays during the height of the Excess Boom were great, but my last visit in July left me with a sour taste in my mouth. Booked room type was unavailable. Told our room was renovated when almost any Vegas aficionado knows that those rooms haven't been updated in almost five years. Frat boys taking boxes of beers to their super cheap rooms. Electronic drapery controls in the room were, by some sort dark magic or electrician incompetence, reversed. In general, service, clientele, and maintenance issues were endemic. What was once the property so exclusive, so luxurious that I couldn't have hoped to enter until my eighteenth birthday is not aging as gracefully as it could and should be under the stewardship of a tinkering, interested owner. I cringe to think what will happen once all of MGM's design and guest attention is taken by ARIA.

The check in receptionist gave us a complimenary bottle of bubbly for our anniversay. Stayed in the Salone Suite, with turn down service and chocolates on the pillows.

Classy, clean, enjoyable. Always fun to visit. Olives is great, "O" is beautiful, Palio has the best capuccino in Vegas, overall a great hotel. Gambling is good, you get a lot of pulls or throws for your bucks here. Rooms are comfortable, large, and quiet - and quiet can be something of an issue in Vegas hotel rooms. The fountains, of course, are a big draw - no matter how many times you've seen them you'll still watch them again. This was home base before 2005, and it may become home base again now that Wynn isn't Wynn anymore!

Bellagio is very elegant. The casino is comfortable and fun to play at. The building and grounds are beautiful. I haven't stayed there but a walk around the hotel and around the pool area makes you feel as if you have traveled to a beautiful, tranquil villa in Italy.
