    We are heading to Vegas for a conference and are staying at the palazzo for 4 nights. We have stayed there before so we know what to expect. We are coming out a few days early and are deciding where to stay. Sould we stay at the palazzo or bellagio? We have never stayed at bellagio and if we do would get a fountain view room. Opinions, thoughts please!!

    Personally, I prefer Bellagio over V/P. Not all would agree. Sure, those rooms are nice at V/P.... but still not a real suite.

    We prefer Bellagio for food options, feel and luck in casino, location on strip and just feels good. A fountain view is something way cool though.

    I like Bellagio better, but more importantly, why not stay somewhere else the first couple of nights. You're already getting four nights at Palazzo for your conference. 6 or more nights there feels like overkill.

    As for the fountain view, you can request it. Not certain, but it may cost extra

    The Bellagio IS Las Vegas and well worth you checkin-it out. It's a beautiful property!!! Personally, I won't give Palazzo owner, Sheldon Adelson a nickel of my money, but that's just me. The Palazzo too is a first rate property.

    Six of one, half dozen the other, IMO. Hard to go wrong with either property.

    I preferred Palazzo over Bellagio rooms but I'm glad I stayed at Bellagio. As smartone pointed out, Bellagio is Vegas. Especially if you an get a fountain view, which I did not have but wish I did. But personally I like the vibe of the Palazzo casino floor and have eaten at more restaurants there. Bellagio is a better location, IMO.

    either one is fine but i would rather stay in the same property during the whole stay. i'm not a fan of pack/unpack and check-in/check-out process.

    Thank you all for your opinions! I think I am leaning more towards bellagio just for a change of pace and for the fact we have ever stayed there. DH found a pretty good deal (IMO) that included a 100 food credit.

    I have stayed at the Palazzo the last 10 or so times that we have been to Vegas. We love it there. We always rent a car and the parking at the Palazzo is great. We are staying at the Bellagio in December. Got a great offer in the mail. Winter special starting at $89 per night with a $50 food and beverage credit. If you are going, it is worth calling about.

    I opt for Bellagio, and its not even close.

    If you gamble at Venetian or Palazzo, you are being raped.

    I would also opt for the Bellagio. Been coming twice a year from WI for past eight years and every time is just as exciting as the last. Me and my wife are 55.
    As has been mentioned this place is Las Vegas.
    Check in is right as you come in, and then the whole place just flows.
    Directly ahead is the Conservatory with the seasonal flower display, Cafe and Michael Mina's place. If staying in the Spa Tower you continue ahead, past Sensi restaurant and Jean Patisserie, then left to the elevators.
    To the right is the lobby bar Petrossian (Pianist playing from noon to midnight) and then as I call it the "Avenue", its like a street but indoors. The casino flows ahead, the Baccarat Bar (Pianist and bass playing from noon to midnight) on the left, and then a jog to the right, table games on both sides. slots to the right, and to far right along the lake are the restaurants. I would suggest Circo (Its closing in May 2014) and the Prime Steakhouse.
    It is always crowded, but in a good way. People moving along the "Avenue" taking it all in.
    Many a time we've sat at the Petrossian or Baccarat sipping a Daiquiri, Manhattan or Cabernet, just take in the crowds, enjoying the adult playground that Vegas is.
    Table games are as good as it gets on the strip, slots; well they are comparable to other strip properties, but you'll find cheaper and better pay tables off strip. (Nothing earth shattering with that comment)
    Enjoy

    Over the years I've stayed at both and loved both trips almost equally. My preference although will have to lean toward the Bellagio simply because of the location. I personally like that end of the strip better than the Northern end. I did better gambling at the Palazzo but that probably was a fluke cuz of one big win at the P. I think the dining is also better at the B's end.
    Regardless, I don't think you will suffer at either property..lol
