This is What a Stay is REALLY like at the Iconic Bellagio Hotel and Casino

The famed Bellagio hotel and casino is sought after stay of choice by even the most discerning traveler. Particularly, it’s known for its recognizable and magnificent nightly fountain show. Furthermore, the Bellagio seems to have been able to hang on to its prestige, glitz and glamour since it opened its doors in 1988.

With regal interiors, and show stopping decor, another must see attraction at the hotel is the Bellagio conservatory. Additionally, the display changes seasonally, so there is always something new to see. Each quarter, you’ll discover a different theme and be wow’d by the creative genius demonstrated in the thoughtful curation of plants, flowers and lighting.

Where is the Hotel Located?

The Bellagio hotel and casino has one of the best locations on the strip. Why? It is at the very center of the strip, right in the middle of all the action. Further, if you intend on walking the strip, hotel hopping or just doing some general sight seeing, this is ideal.

In addition, its neighboring some of the most desirable hotels in Las Vegas: the Cosmopolitan, the Paris, Caesars Palace. MGM Grand and the Venetian are just up the way, in opposite directions of the strip on either side of the Bellagio.

Basically, whether you intend of walking the town or grabbing a ride share, you will be close to all the main attractions.

What to Expect & Amenities on Site

The Bellagio Hotel is a famed 5 star hotel, a favorite of travelers far and wide. First, can expect an upscale ambiance. Secondly, get ready for elevated decor and spectacular service.

If you’re not a fan of the traditional Las Vegas hotel atmosphere, where the halls kind of have a lingering musk of smoke and poor decisions, then the Bellagio is perfect for you.


The Bellagio hotel and casino features one of the most celebrated spas that can be found on the Las Vegas strip. While I have not personally visited this spa yet, many a Guest have raved about the clean facilities, serene environment and excellent services.


Arguably one of the biggest attractions at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, if not the biggest, is the stunning conservatory. Additionally, the display changes seasonally and is breathtaking and full of grandeur. Stunning florals and butterflies and whimsy fill the conservatory during spring and summer. In the winter, the conservatory transforms into a magical holiday spirit filled space.

What’s to Eat?


The Bellagio hotel and casino is home to some excellent fine dining options. If you’re looking for dinner and entertainment, that’s not just a meal and is more of an experience, you’ll just be a few floors away from the Mayfair Supperclub. I loved my evening here – it gives you that classic Las Vegas experience in every way.

You can read about my experience at the Mayfair restaurant, here.

If you’re seeking a steakhouse experience with gorgeous views of the Bellagio fountains, the Bellagio hotel and casino is also home to Jean Georges steakhouse creation, Prime Steakhouse. I have not visited Prime yet, but it’s on my restaurant bucket list.


If an elegant dining experience is what you seek, along with Spanish and French cuisine, then Picasso will fit the bill. Picasso, a two Michelin starred restaurant, offers a tasting menu, along with the option to sit fountain side at one of the 16 tables on the outdoor patio.


If you’re a foodie, chances are you’ve heard of Le Cirque. This Michellin starred restaurant became an absolute institution in New York since its inception in 1974. In 1988, a Las Vegas location debuted when the Bellagio Hotel and Casino opened its doors.

The Room


In 2021, the Bellagio hotel and casino underwent a major renovation. This refurbishment resulted in one of the greatest things gifted to the Las Vegas strip: Stay Well Premier rooms.

I really didn’t have high expectations from the Stay Well concept, but let me tell you, it exceeded any expectations I could’ve possibly had.

For starters, the Bellagio Hotel has the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on in my life. This is drawing from the experience of staying in hundreds of hotels around the world, including the St. Regis on 5th avenue in New York. Like, we are talking it was soo, comfortable I actually researched what kind of mattresses they used in hopes of obtaining one for my home.

Bellagio hotel and casino actually sells the mattresses they use in the Stay Well room, along with the exact pillows and bedding you sleep on as well. Although, the mattress runs over $3000+ USD… and it feels like it’s worth a million bucks.

Tip: The Bellagio hotel and casino also offers dog-friendly rooms. Make sure to book these well in advance, as they go fast!


The check in process was one of the fastest I’ve ever experienced in Las Vegas (other than Caesars Palace which offers virtual check in). The check in desk and lobby is absolutely beautiful and the front desk staff, management and concierge when I visited was professional, kind, courtesy and helpful.

Also, when you walk into the Bellagio Hotel, look up at the ceiling. There, you’ll see a beautiful array of over 2000 pieces of blown glass. Each piece of glass is worth over $5000 USD!

Know Before You Go

Like any hotel you visit in Las Vegas, always sign up for a ‘players card’ upon arrival. Equally important, make sure you swipe your card for all qualifying transactions. This includes your entire stay, any food or beverages you purchase, dining and even some shopping purchases. The spending adds up fast and this can earn you future perks and free stays!

Additionally, another way I saved on this stay is by having an American Express Platinum card. I have used my American Express $200 Fine Resorts credit here and it also comes along with a $100 Food and Beverage credit that I used towards my Mayfair Supperclub experience.
