Las Vegas Style.
My first stay @ Bellagio was very comfortable and dream-like. The staff was very nice and attentive. It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at SweetHotelDeals.us They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
One of the nicest places to stay!.
I have stayed here a few times. It is always beautiful. You shouldn't be scared of spending a fortune. You can get some good deals for nice rooms if you do your research carefully. It is by no means cheap, but if you're going to pay for any place in vegas, this is well within the bal park of the other casinos around, plus you have the luxuries of a nice place.
And still, whenever I stand looking at the fountains in front, I feel just like Danny Ocean at the end of the original.
Not only is this place beautiful, it's clean!! I had relocated from another hotel that was pretty skeevy when I found that there was a cancellation at the Bellagio. The Bellagio has quite a lot to do and see, not to mention the amazing fountains in front of the hotel.. this made my stay in Vegas memorable. I have to say, the service, the rooms and the food made a long week of work quite enjoyable.
Beware the hidden fees! Much more expensive than expected!.
I got married at the Bellagio Wedding Chapel in December 2010. The chapel is pretty cute, and the hotel is gorgeous.

-You can't bring your own photographer, and the photographer they provide will charge you a whole bunch of money for photos of your own wedding
-We paid for the photographer for 1 hour, but he only stuck around for about 40 minutes.
-They "include" a certain dollar amount of flowers, but when you see the options, their prices are overinflated. --This means with the included amount, you can only their cheapest arrangement (unless you're willing to spend extra money), that you could get somewhere else for 15% of their price.
-They say you will be able to talk to the minister about the service, but he doesn't take any input. i.e. if you don't want to use rings in your ceremony, he will still use the words for a couple using rings, even though there aren't any rings. Pretty dumb and awkward.
More notes on the photography:
The package you get includes a certain number of photographs. When you go to pick them the next day, they will have them all printed out already, but won't give you more than your contract says. Also, the photos are only matte, don't even hope of getting some glossies for your album. They want you to pay about $15 per photo for a digital copy. All in all, the package they wanted us to buy from them for the 40 minutes they spent with us and the 60 photos was $3,000. Absurd.
I *might* recommend this chapel if you could bring your own photographer, or if the photography package they offered was somewhat reasonable. With the uber-expensive photo package they try to force on you (your only other option is to not have photos from the wedding, except for a handful of small matte photos), I would NOT recommend getting married at the Bellagio.
First Class All The Way.
I have stayed at Bellagio three times and had a great stay each time.Check-in is one of the few sour notes. Twice, I had to wait more than an hour for my room to be ready, which I found bothersome. The property itself is spectacular. The lake with fountain show in front is still terrific, even though I've seen it many times.The Dale Chihuli sculpture in the lobby, and the endless display of flowers in the conservatory are among the interior highlights. The array of restaurants is amazing. Picasso and Le Cirque are among the best fine dining restaurants that I've ever visited.The buffet is also the best in the city by far. The pool area is also excellent, although it seems in some respects to have been copied from Caesars.The guest rooms are well appointed and include private bars,and electronically controlled curtains and sheers.The casino is sprawling, and some may find the limits too high for their liking.Another point is that it seems like you have to walk miles to get from one place to another. For example, going from the main guest tower to the JPM patisserie takes forever. Service is generally very good for a hotel with 4,000 rooms. In spite of a few negatives, Bellagio is my 3rd favorite Las Vegas hotel behind Four Seasons and Wynn/Encore. Pros: Great rooms, superb restaurants, good service. Cons:Check-in is hit or miss, walking from place to place takes forever, even compared to other casino/hotels with 4,000 rooms.
