    My friend and I are planning a trip to Vegas. She stays at Bellagio, and I get rooms at CET. Would Caesars Laurel room or Paris or PH be the easier walk for me to meet her at the Bellagio? I have a hard time walking long distances, so I would like to get opinions on what would be the easier walk for these old legs. Thanks!

    I think staying in a Caesars LC room would be the closest. Then, you can walk out the doors by the main hotel lobby, around the Absinthe tent, and up the stairs and you're in the north shopping wing of Bellagio. At Paris or PH, you'd either: (1) have to walk down to the corner of the Strip and Flamingo (past Ballys), cross the bridge to the north side of Flamingo Rd., then cross the bridge across the strip and still have to walk over to the Flamingo Rd. overpass to Bellagio; or (2) take the cross walk in front of PH to the Bellagio exit drive and walk up the long sidewalk around the fountains/lake. At night, I've found the walkway around the fountain to be extremely crowded, but the Caesars-Bellagio route is always manageable.

    If you cross Las Vegas Blvd in front of PH at the traffic light, there is an escalator/moving sidewalk directly infront that will take you to the Bellagio lobby.

    what about the Cromwell? It may not be shorter from hotel to hotel vs Caesars, but you may not have as long of a hike thru the hotel itself..........

    If you measure from (your hotel) elevator bank to the Bellagio gaming floor, then Paris or Planet Hollywood is actually going to be your shortest walk. The Cosmopolitan might be equally as close. But there's a slight uphill after you cross LV Blvd and head up to Bellagio main entrance. Bally's, Caesar's, Cromwell, and Flamingo aren't much further, though. And they have the escalators and elevated crosswalks, which can make for a quicker walk, as the wait for the crosswalk light (for Paris & PH) can be quite long. Cosmo is a short jaunt out on the sidewalk and no waiting for crosswalk lights.

    If you're going in the heat of summer, then Flamingo or Caesar's probably gives you minimum outside walking distance.

    None of the ones I mentioned are more than a 10 minute walk at a leisurely pace. So if you can handle that, you won't have trouble with any of them.

    Caesars Augustus Tower is the closest. Walk out of the Flamino Rd enterence/exit, walk through the parking lot to an elevator that will take you to the bridge that goes to Bellagio.

    We've done this many times, and it seems to be the easiest and quickest way in to the Bellagio main lobby (no need to do the long walkway around the fountains).
    Caesar's might be closer, but the stairs could be an issue for you.

    I think thats the best way to look at it - what casino you stay at will be best for you.

    The distance from the three hotels you listed is probably going to be pretty close so realistically saving 50-100 steps by choosing one hotel over another for a walk to Bellagio probably isn't going to mean too much versus the actual amount of walking you are going to do in the casino at the hotel where you are staying.
