    The first room we were given at Bellagio was in the Spa tower. OMG what a walk to even get to the Conservatory and then through the casino, out the shopping walkway, over the strip bridge and onto the sidewalk.

    We got moved to the Bellagio Tower which was considerably better. I would think the Spa tower is OK if you went out by cab or had the valet bring your car around, but if you want to walk to PAris, or PH, the walk is pretty far for us old folks.

    But, if you are going to Aria and/or Monte Carlo, then the Spa Tower is great.

    (agree overall with your statement though)

    i've been in both towers and there's advantages and disadvantages to each. one thing i actually like about the spa tower is the walk. it's a walk, but it's not that far, seriously. but it's nice to be able to get to your room without walking through the mass of people in the casino. and Jean Philippe is close by for breakfast. and you can take your elevator directly down to the pool. and, of course, the tram to Aria is right there. so there's a lot of advantages really.

    personally the #1 reason i prefer the main tower is that the fountain view is just incredible. the spa tower fountain view is nice, but nothing compared to being right on top of the fountains with floor to ceiling windows. but i've been in the main tower without a fountain view and i'd much prefer the spa tower over that.

    Going with difference between the towers, the bathroom in the Spa has double sinks and a bench in the shower...otherwise the room is drab and a little smaller than the Bellagio Tower.
    While the B Tower has been renovated, I was not really crazy about the purple and green, multi=pattern style. I like the convenience of the safe in the night table as opposed to having to wedge yourself in the cloet to use the safe.

    We eat at the buffet in the morning and then go to the pool, so that walk was better for us.
