Four-time recipient of the AAA Five Diamond award, the Bellagio combines Old World elegance with modern luxuries in a 3,933-room resort in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Tuscan-themed resort transports guests to the Vegas version of the famous town on Italy's Lake Como. Dancing water choreographed to popular music and show-tunes soars 240 feet above an eight-acre lake, surrounded by deluxe guest rooms and suites, abundant dining, entertainment, shopping and gaming options.
While you may not want to leave your posh accommodations, with contemporary custom furniture, fine art, sunken bathtubs and such conveniences as high-speed Internet access, there's much to see and do, eat and buy here.
The Conservatory and Botanical Gardens present fresh displays of foliage with the changing seasons, cultivated from a 90,000-square-foot greenhouse located behind the hotel.
The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art exhibits paintings, sculpture and works on paper by the world's most influential artists.
The international cast of Cirque du Soleil's "O" - synchronized swimmers, divers, acrobats and aerialists - performs in a theatre reminiscent of the Paris Opera House. Or you can revel in live music and views of Lake Bellagio at Fontana bar or celebrity-watch inside Light, an off-shoot of the popular New York lounge.
Guests of the Bellagio dine at some of the world's best restaurants: The Maccioni family's Le Cirque (an AAA Five Diamond award-winner) and Osteria del Circo, Todd English's Olives, the seafood restaurant Michael Mina by Michael Mina, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Prime steak house, and James Beard award-recipient Julian Serrano's Picasso, featuring a collection of the artist's masterworks.
Along Via Bellagio, you'll find such upscale boutiques as Giorgio Armani, Chanel, Prada and Tiffany & Co.
In the spacious, European-inspired casino, try your luck at blackjack, European roulette or pai gow, or in the popular poker room or the race and sports book.
Lounge by the pool in a Mediterranean Villa-style setting with relaxing pools, soothing spas and private cabanas surrounded by citrus and parterre gardens.
If work's a must, there's more than 200,000 square feet of fully-equipped convention space and a professional staff on hand to oversee every detail.
That's not to mention the recently unveiled Spa Tower, which added 928 new rooms, new restaurants such as Executive Chef Martin Heierling's Sensi and pastry chef Jean-Philippe Maury's Patisserie, and expanded Bellagio Spa & Salon, including a bamboo studio for pilates, yoga and kickboxing classes and barber room.
Other hotel amenities include the lovely wedding chapel and Terrace of Dreams, and access to Shadow Creek, one of the country's most exclusive golf courses.
