Bellagio Las Vegas Review


We recently visited “Bellagio Las Vegas” booked using Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. Bellagio is located on the strip and is popular for complimentary water fountain shows.

Bellagio resort is about 36 floors high with over 3,000 rooms. This reservation was made through Amex Platinum concierge under “Fine Hotels & Resorts” program.

 

What is Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts?

Our Experience:

We booked a 1 night stay (Sunday) for $179 + taxes.  At check-in, we were explained about the benefits for booking through American Express “Fine Hotels & Resorts” along with the list of restaurants I can use the $100 dining credit.

 

We were able to use the breakfast vouchers for carry out and we used the $100 dining credit at Cafe Bellagio.

We were upgraded to a view room giving us access to the water fountain shows from the room.

 

Fountain Show

Frequency of the Water fountain shows depending on the time of the day. After 7 PM local time, you get to see a show every 15 minutes.

There are also several restaurants onsite.

Room is a slight disappointment due to its age and it is also not as spacious as “The Venetian“.

 

Room

As with every resort, you will be provided a multitude of options to spend money. Each room is equipped with a mini-bar stuffed with drinks and a snack counter.

The Bathroom is standard and the fittings are certainly worn out.

There is also a walk-in shower with worn out faucets.

Conclusion:

Bellagio Las Vegas is one of the popular property on the Strip.  If you have option to choose, I would choose “The Venetian” as the rooms are more spacious and luxurious.

Keep in mind that you will pay a tax of 12% tax on the published rate along with the resort fee of $29 + tax. Our $179 published rate costed us $240 when all the taxes and fees are added. (We got 2 Breakfast vouchers, $100 dining credit, Room upgrade, Late checkout, Early check-in along with the room)
