Probably the most attractive sports book. When coming in, there is a marble floorway, with the washroom on the left. Is this level of play even high enough for future room offers?
When coming in, there is a marble floorway, with the washroom on the left. The very comfortable king bed had extra throw pillows for comfort, and had overhead lights that you could turn off at the side of the bed.
The comforter was colored in the theme of the room, dark brown. As well, there was a standard luggage holder, a desk, two sitting chairs, and a small table for eating. The bed was flanked by two night stands, both with reading lamps. There was also a I-Home a clock radio with a docking station for an IPod. Opposite the bed was a gigantic wooden brown armoire with two cabinets for hanging clothes. The room safe which was left in the open position and was never fixed during our stay was embedded in one side of the armoire.
The bottom of the window had a vent that you could open to let in the outside air. Our vent was particularly difficult to open as one of the handles was not working. Window drapery is remote controlled from your bedside or from the entrance way to the room. There was very little room to put your own items in.
Minutes after check-in, one of the service personnel brought us a bag of ice for us. There was no coffee maker. The bathroom was very well appointed. There was a bathtub on the left, a single sink, and a glass-enclosed large shower. Drawers and shelves held hand towels and a hair dryer, There was also a scale which was not working. Accoutrements included large bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, mouthwash, soaps, and a shower cap.
Unfortunately, on the first morning the shower was only warm, which was quite a disappointment. To the east was the south wing of the Bellagio. To the west were the industrial areas of Las Vegas and the mountains off to the distance. The room was serviced twice per day and maid service was excellent. The turndown service in the evening featured our bathrobes being placed on the sides of our bed, and a towel on our floor with slippers as well as a couple of chocolates. Do not miss this show, and because the display is different every time, it is worthwhile to watch several shows.
The best place to watch the show is either from one of the restaurants and lounges in the Bellagio or from any vantage point along Lake Como. Music is chosen from a selection of Opera, Classical, and Broadway tunes. The Conservatory just off of the main lobby is a must see.
Naturally lighted, the Conservatory features bright, beautiful gardens and decorations that are changed for the seasons. In early April when we visited, the Conservatory featured giant ants, mushrooms, and a giant shovel and pail with flowers flowing out of them like spilt sand. The Gallery features a very small selection of rotating fine art and sculpture. Your room card is swiped when entering the pool area to dissuade trespassers. Towels given out at the bottom of the stairs and bottles of water are available at the bar.
The grounds are absolutely beautiful with gorgeous gardens and topiaries. The area is seemingly secluded as the pool area is surrounded by the hotel and convention facilities. This also cuts out some of the wind. There are plenty of cabanas available for rent call in advance to reserve, well in advance for weekends.
Cabanas feature HDTV, phone, wi-fi, fruit plate, amenities basket, fully stocked fridge non-alcoholic , an I-Home, and a mister system. You can also receive massage services in your cabana. The pools are heated to 80 degrees but none of them are deep at all 4 feet making it difficult to do laps. The main pool is a very long and inviting. The other main pool is a large square and is quieter. The staff are very attentive to their patrons and provide service immediately on settling in to your lounge chair.
The pool was very busy on the day that we were there and it was difficult to find two chairs together -- this on a cool April Tuesday. Despite the beautiful grounds, the pool area, for me, seems to be too crowded and not much of a respite from the Casino. Bellagio provides a page Spa Brochure that covers various services.
You must be a registered guest at Bellagio to be able to use the Spa or Fitness Center. We ate at Osteria del Circo, which is located along Lake Como. Since we did not have reservations, we were placed at a table far away from the view.
It was not very good at all. I felt that this value was terrible, despite it being the Bellagio and with the premiere view of the fountains. We were in the mood for eggs, so I had a ham and cheese omelette, with hash browns and toast, while my partner feasted on the three egg breakfast, scrambled, with back bacon, hash browns, and toast.
For lunch, we ate soups and sandwiches at Snacks. The Bellagio Buffet is supposed to be the best in town for all Buffets. Line-ups for the buffet seemed long at all times, and we did not partake in the meal.

If you follow the main pathways however, you will find that the casino is essentially a long rectangular hallway with a pathway that jigs to the right. The entire casino is flanked by restaurants on the lake side and restaurants and services on the north side. Table games line most of the hallway from the entrance of the casino to the end of the pathway, which is the hotel lobby and Conservatory.
This hallway, from the opulent mall that leads to Ballys and Caesars Palace, to the lobby and Conservatory, is very heavily travelled. I would venture to say that this is probably the busiest casino on the Strip, and it feels like that whenever you gamble there.
I would rate the Casino itself as first class, but I think the staff is not particularly friendly, with a bit of snootiness and attitude. Behind a set of curtains in that room is Club Prive, which features a very classy bar featuring rare spirits and more baccarat and blackjack tables.
A set of elevators there connect you to the top floors of Bellagio. Here is a summary of the games:. Blackjack variants included Blackjack Switch and Super Fun One particular woman admonished me on the way I made hand signals, the first time in my gambling history.
I left the table. There were 12 craps tables all centered along the main hallway of the casino. Mini-Baccarat four tables is featured in the pai gow section.
