    Hi All
    Long time reader, first time poster. Thanks for all the advice over the years.

    After a few solo and guys trips, I'm taking the wife to Las Vegas to celebrate her 50th birthday. We'll be there for 4 nights starting April 1. We have decided to stay at the Bellagio, and I had a question about room types that I was hoping someone could help me with.

    What is the difference between the Premier Fountain View Rooms and the Deluxe Fountain View Rooms, and is that difference worth an extra 50 bucks a night?

    I see on the Bellagio website that the Deluxe Fountain View Rooms are are located on floors 9 – 28 and the Premier Fountain View Rooms located on the "upper floors". Does this mean that the Premier rooms are on floors 29 and above? Is there any other differences in the rooms besides being on the "upper floors"?

    I don't mind spending the extra money, and am leaning towards the Premier room. The wife actually thinks we are getting the cheapest non fountain view room. I"m looking forward to surprising her with the best fountain view possible.

    Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.

    JB

    basically just the higher floor gives you a better view.

    however, floors 29 and above are the suite floors. there aren't any regular rooms up there.

    so I think you're just paying extra to guarantee the upper range of 9-28. you may get a high floor even without paying the extra.

    There should be some "premier" fountain view rooms on floors 29-36 -- the Penthouse suites come with the option of being expanded to a two-bedroom suite by adding on an adjacent king room. But not everyone in the penthouse suites does that, so you can often find the premier fountain view rooms on floors 29-36. But the difference between deluxe fountain view and premier is simply a function of how high the floor is, nothing else. Although I do really like the private elevators that take you up to the upper floors -- with the convenient "secret" door to them off the back of Petrossian.

    For what it's worth, I think the fountains look awesome if you're close down to them or high above.

    At the risk of appearing pedantic, there are regular rooms on floors 29+, typically used to add on to the Bellagio and Penthouse Suites to make them 2 bedroom suites. But would be unusual for them to be assigned unless specifically requested by a host.

    I have also recently wondered what the difference was between Premier and Deluxe Fountain view, as it appears some of the Spa tower rooms are now considered "fountain view" even though they are wayyyyyy off to the side.

    Good Luck!

    Have stayed in the Bellagio Suite once when wife and I were in town for her birthday. Remember being on the 33rd floor, great view. Would certainly recommend but we are small-timers so I know some people have considerably better budgets compared to us.

    I'm well aware of the connectors. However I don't consider those regular rooms as they are a different category and are not bookable online. They don't rent them out except to the suite holder next door. Additionally they always have 2 queen beds and are not available in a king. The true 2br Bellagio and Penthouse suites have 2 king brs.

    I recently stayed at Bellagio and booked the Deluxe Fountain View - this was in December - I think I booked it around September or October - A month or so later I got an offer to upgrade to The Premier Fountain view for - $20 a night -- all I had to do was click on the link - I did this and secured that room - Then I received another offer that required calling the VIP line. I could upgrade to a Spa Suite for the price as the premier view - but they couldn't guarantee a good view. I could also take a really great rate on a standard room $88 a night - again no guarantee on the view. My rate for the premier view was around $150 plus the added taxes and Resort Fee. The room was wonderful and I am glad I did it the one time. We were on the 24th or so floor - almost dead center.

    It could pertain to Spa Tower as compared to Main Tower?

    We have done both deluxe and premium rooms, (1 night each as a treat LOL) and when we had the deluxe room some of the fountain was obstructed. We were on a low floor, but it wasn't bad enough to diminish the experience. However the premium room was fantastic!!! I definitely would go with the premium if you enjoy the fountains. Both times we actually stayed in the room from 6-midnight so we got our money's worth. Enjoy.

    Aren't all Spa Tower rooms partial fountain views?

    I was just poking around and found this file/brochure that appears to have been prepared by Bellagio for travel agents and event planners. It has a ton of information on the different room types. I'm not sure how old it is, but it appears to have been created after they changed the room names from "Lakeview" to "Fountain View", so I think it's probably still current.

    If you're on the far right, you can see all of them. But it doesn't compare to being right on top dead center.

    FYI some kids did this to an AT&T URL a couple years back and found a bunch of customer info. They shared that info with AT&T as a security issue and they were arrested and convicted for hacking and are now doing time in prison.

    As ridiculous as that sounds it's true, so you want to be careful with stuff like that.

    Yeah, the link I posted came up on Google, but I hear what you're saying, manipulating a URL isn't the best idea.

    I was a John Doe in a suit many years ago simply for posting on a message board the same day that someone else posted some info they had gotten that way, so I'm familiar with the subject. Room type info is a little different than posting companies' financial data before they release it, but the principle applies.

    I was just going to say this. 2 bedroom penthouses at Bellagio are actually designed with 2 bedrooms - no connector. They have the living room/dining area/wet bar in the center, with a bedroom on both sides of it. That said, there are some regular rooms on the suite floors. They even have a few regular rooms on floor 3 - the Villa floor. They call them "entourage rooms" but they are basically just standard rooms on the opposite side of the hall from the Villas.
