WHY DOES EVERYONE COMPLAIN ABOUT TIGHT SLOTS AND LOSING AT THE TABLES...AFTER ALL IT IS CALLED GAMBLING!! Don't any of you realize the odds are ALWAYS in the favor of the casino and the chances of you walking out a winner are slim. YES IT DOES HAPPEN, but, don't blame ANY hotel because you lost money gambling. I thought the idea behind this board was to tell of experiences of staying at the hotel, the restaurants, and how the staff treated you.
As for the Bellagio, it is a beautiful hotel with a good staff and if you have the means to stay here, I would recommend it in a heartbeat but, don't rule out The Venetian or even Mandalay Bay or The Mirage because they are fine hotels too!
Quit whining about losing...if Las Vegas was built for the public to win and the casinos to lose they would have been out of business decades ago. Look at it this way, the money you use gambling is the same money you would be spending in a Theme Park or other activities, it's just a form of entertainment and if you go there expecting to win, you're in for a huge let down.

Awful. I agree with the comments regarding attitude. I have stayed in the best around North America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim. If this is "5-star" lodging then I must have changed planets. If you want a true 5-star experience I suggest the Four Seasons. If you want Very Good accomodations, then consider Venetian. If you want OK accomodations and are tired of Ceasar's, then by all means stay here, but no matter what your line of credit, do not expect a smile and a warm greeting. I am accustomed to staff treating me or my account a lot better than what happened two weeks ago. But to make it one word: Awful. Jared

Stayed at Bellagio June 16-19. Bellagio doesn't have a set check-in time. They try to accommodate everyone with a room no matter the time of arrival. I also got a late 2pm check out on Wednesday with no hassles. The lake view room was top notch well worth the extra money. The pool wasn't crowded and had plenty of shade. The restaurants are a bit pricey everywhere in the hotel, but the food was very good. The spa was a bit of a walk from the elevators. The massage I received was very good, but I got a better one at Treasure Island last month. Gaming tables were a little crowded in the evenings to be expected. The location was great for walking to other casinos and the best shopping. Now that I'm in my 40's, this could be my new favorite Las Vegas hotel.

the hotel is gorgeous and the tables are ok. The hotel has great restrants such as the Prime. Service is GREAT olny beat by the service at Mandalay Bay. Bellagio also has a great cirque de soile show named O. The hotel is definately worth a visist even if you don't stay there. Be sure to see the Water show in front of the hotel playing every 30 minutes. The water show is completely free.

WARNING THIS IS A NEGATIVE REVIEW
Stayed at Bell in 2001, but just came across website. The place is beautiful,
the gallery amazing. My wife went to the Steve Martin exhibit and said it was
well worth it while I gambled :| Now would I recommend this place NO NO NO
and here is why. Price is comperable to Venetian or Ceasar's, rooms at Venetian
are bigger and nicer. The staff takes care of you when you call from your room, but
when you are in the lobby or in the casino they treat you like dirt, as if you dont
belong not until I said "charge it to my room" did service take a turn for the
better. We've done well in marriage and in life and live a lifestyle that we
can afford, but I do not like to flaunt my wealth, but it seems that if you do there is
a difference in how you are treated. I played cheapo ($15) tables at Carribean Stud and
black Jack so that I understand, but even when buying tickets to Cirque
or dining in-house you get that feeling. To be fair my neighbors went two months ago,
and raved about the place, and I will tell you room service is fast and accurate, but
these should be "given"s I want the extras. We dont always stay at the same spot
and we might not make Vegas this year, but Bellagio won't get another look. There are too
many top-end places on the strip to choose from. My wife wants to try 4 seasons next so
we will be at the wrong end of the strip but she's the boss...

I went to a few places this year on buisness. I liked Luxor, I did NOTlike Bellagio, and my stay At MGM was poor but it had nothing to do with thhotel, I just lost a big sale that week so it ruined my time. I will be staying at Luxor again in June. I will say the crowds are rude everywhere. The rooms at Bellagio are nice but room service was slow and not very friendly. They myst have known I wasnt there to gamble so they treated me different, at I guess I mean I hope so I wouldn't ant to be important and get treated like I did. the fountain show is beautiful and the view of the strip is good though I want to be on the other end, MGM, Excal, Luxor and the others. On Tuesday I gambled a little downstairs but I was at a $10 table so they werent very nice to the players, I bet they are nicer if you are at a higher limit table. I hope. I didnt get to eat in the hotel xcept for room service, so I cant say what the resturants inside was like. All in all its really pretty but I got a feeling that I diodn't belong, even when dressed up and headed out for a meeting. I do not recommend staying athere but is a nice place to visit. Be sure to see the fountains its the best part!

I stayed at bellagio in Jan and I will say that I had to go to Ceasar's to gamble, I was treated like dirt at the B's tables - $50 BJ and$10 craps, specially craps, it was like "no fun allowed". Yeah I lost a bit at Ceasar's but I gues its my donation to the animitronics fund :)
Now though my company offered to put me up at Bellagio this June I said that MB was ok, they got me in there. My boss asked me about it and I told him what the attitude was like at B. Yeah I know i am their to work but I can play too and I would rather my money and play get some respect, and I would rahter play where I stay.
let me say again Bellagio is nice and the rooms are awesome and there are like NO kids which is a relief in Vegas these days, but you dont sty in your room all day, and its like your money doesnt matter to them. Then why are you in buisness? I guess its cool to be aloof cos it makes you look more upper-class but... I want peole to give me a bit of an ego boost when I am winning or losing. Not "place your bet, sir" while not looking at me.

Never stayed at the B so no comment about rooms, But let me speak to the attitude.
I watched $10 tables and $50 tables, and any in-between.
BJ, 3 card poker, roulette, casino war - whatever. The one thing in common?
The dealers NEVER smile, never make polite chit-chat. Was staying at Venetian,
(which is AMAZING) and saw "low-rollers"
at the $10 tables treated with more respect and
with plenty more smiles than anywhere at the B.
The staff stared at you as you walked through. Not security, which I understand (even before 9/11)
But off-duty or idle dealers, waitstaff, bartenders... unbeievable.
I play somewhat big
($25 tables usually) and have been treated like royalty (Venetian, Ceasar's, Mandalay)
or with somewhat indifference (IP, Luxor, Flamingo Hilton) but NEVER with disdain that I saw at Bellagio.
I talked with other patrons (some guests) and it was considered part of the "classiness" of the place
that prevented the dealers from shooting the bull during chip-fills, making change etc.
Classy? I'll leave that to Ceasar's and Venetian. My money is hard earned, and it and my person deserve the respect
freely given out at other establishments.

We selected Bellagio for our week long Las Vegas because of it's reputation and we were not disappointed. We booked a suite and were treated like royalty and recommend the suites to anyone who has the means to afford one. Additionally, the staff was great from obtaining show tickets to making dinner reservations, it was all done with a smile. -Addressing the issue of children at this hotel, and, I know this will cause some bitter reactions, but, thankfully at least one casino hotels in Las Vegas has the right idea. We have nothing against children, however, we do have problems with their less than considerate parents. I can't tell you how many times during the week we were run into with baby strollers without so much as an apology! I can't begin to tell you how many children we saw freely running (and I mean literally running) through the other hotels without parental supervision. It was plain awful.
I was so glad to see Bellagio ENFORCE their policies regarding children!! Now, to clear up confusion, yes, children are welcomed at this hotel BUT the difference between Bellagio and the other hotels is that Bellagio cares enough about their guests and the safety of everyone to force parents to take control of their children. That isn't asking for the impossible and it isn't an outrageous request. We paid a lot of money to stay at this hotel and we certainly can do without the type of people I just described. And if this makes me a snob, then I'll gladly accept the title!

Just don't pick up the phone! We tried calling friends, had wrong # tried twice and it cost us 20$. Upon check-out staff had no sympathy. Just left a bitter taste after staying their one week from Canada on honeymoon.

FROM THE SERVICE TO THE ROOMS TO THE STAFF TO THE DESIGN ALL WAS FIRST RATE ....WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE ... SOME PREVIOUS MENTION OF THE BELLAGIO BEING ALOOF IS UNTRUE ... WE WERE TREATED THE BEST WE HAVE BEEN EVER TREATED AT ANY RESORT OR CASINO EVEN DURING SPRING BRAKE THAT DID CAUSE SOME HAVOC . THE BEAUTIFUL FRAGRANCE OF FLOWERS IN THE LOBBY AND ATRIUM AND THE GORGEOUS GLASS FOWERS HIGHLIGHTING THE CEILING OF THE LOBBY GIVING OFF THE WARM THAT THE HOTEL PROVIDES ... THE STAFF WAS EXTREAMLY COURTEOUS.. HOWEVER SOMEONE THAT STAYS AT THE BELLAGIO FOR 3 NIGHTS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO SEE "o" ESPECIALLY WHEN CALLING THREE WEEKS BEFORE THEY TELL YOU TO CALL BACK A WEEK BEFORE TO MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR THE SHOW ...ALL IN ALL THIS WAS THE BEST.

My family and I stayed here a few months ago. The room was great, it had a view of the fountain show. I found out that this hotel that doesn't want kids actually has an arcade... So for all of you who think this is not a family hotel, Why do they have an arcade??????

We stayed at the hotel on the week of 11/18/2001. The landscaping and architecture of the hotel is very impressive. However, the room itself is just so-so. The carpet had stains on it. A light bulb was missing from the bathroom and another bulb was not working near the window area. The check-in service was not good because they did not have a single line. We were not very lucky since we were waiting behind a slow counter whereas other people who arrived after us got service faster. The pool area is very nice. I like the rose garden inside the pool area. There are many different pools and spas to choose from. I must say the creator of the hotel did a great job, but too bad he's out of the game. The current management really needs to be improved on. One last thing, the matress was extremely comfortable.

Stayed at Bellagio week of Oct. 29th. Beautiful hotel. Whoever said staff is snobby could not be more wrong. Everyone that worked at the hotel treated us very nice and were extremely friendly. Whoever visits this hotel, even if you don't swim, MUST take a walk out and see the pool area. It is beautiful to just go look at. Fountains were nice also. (And not many kids, which I go to Vegas to escape from at home!) I would stay there again but only if I got a good rate again. We paid $100 per night which was a great price. Our room was really nice, but I must admit, a little worn. However, I went into my friends room and it was absolutely beautiful. I think it must have just been redone. Everything looked brand new, including the rug. It didn't matter much since we were hardly in our rooms. Our room was still very nice and very clean. Everything about the hotel was really nice and it had great restaurants. My one and only complaint, and it's not a big one, was the setup of the casino. They put the main walkway, which was about 15 feet wide, straight through the middle of the casino. So when guests checked in and out they had to walk right through the middle of the casino to get to the elevators. It got to be a pain at peak times when you were strolling through the casino and had to dodge luggae and hundreds of people. (The Aladdin had the best set up casino out of all the casino's that we visited.) But that wouldn't stop me from staying there again. It was an excellent stay that we had at the Bellagio. The hotel all together was beautiful.
