    In a couple of weeks, I will be staying at the Bellagio for the first time. Although I have been there many times, I would like to see if there are any good suggestions while there around the hotel. Anything is helpful like eats, specials, etc. Thanks in advance.

    If you enjoy sushi (many do, many don't), I strongly recommend Yellowtail. Great food and fantastic lively atmosphere. Pricey though...

    Depends on what you like to do. Make sure and check out the fountains. Check out the conservatory, but I would recommend going first thing in the morning or last thing at night when it will hopefully be less crowded. If you enjoy sports, definitely check out their sports book and walk by the poker room while you are there to gawk at poker celebs :thumbsup:

    I'm up really early in Vegas and one of my favorite things to do while staying at the Bellagio is to head into Cafe Bellagio early in the mornings (usually before all the other places are open) and get a cup of their delicious coffee and then have a wander around the conservatory, basically having it to myself.

    Steam Room in the Spa
    Dim Sum at Noodles at lunch
    Sounds crazy but get the grapefruit with the burnt sugar on top of it at Cafe Bellagio for breakfast

    My girlfriend and I loved Le Cirque and plan to make it a regular stop after our last trip. If it's not out of your budget, you might want to try there. It's roughly $150-300/person after tax and tip depending on your food and drink choices.

    My wife Loves the Spa.

    If you go to Planet Hollywood, there is an escalator and a people mover to an escalator to the strip. I have gone there for years and just figured it out last trip. My wife used to have to take a rest walking up the hill. < not me ;) >

    Go right out of the lobby stay outside and go past the Valet.

    If you go past the conservatory and spa tower there is a tram to Aria, and Monte Carlo.

    Best View

    We are staying at Bellagio in 5 weeks. What is the best wording to use when asking for a fountain view room. I plan on trying the $20.00 trick but I am not sure exactly how to ask for the view we want.

    Premier Fountain View, that's the good one in the main Tower.

    Jasmine is a great chinese restaurant with fountain views and I think I've eaten there every time I've stayed at Bellagio. It's ideal if you're there with more than a couple people especially so you can order a variety of dishes.

    I think Cafe Bellagio is the best 24 hour cafe in the MGM family (though the new Avenue 24 at MGM was good). Last time I had the reuben and parmesan fries and they give you so many where I ate them well beyond the point of being full because they were so good, even though they sat as a lump in my stomach for the entire next day.

    See O if you haven't already. You can bring drinks in from the casino so be sure to do that, otherwise pay typical inflated theatre venue prices inside.

    Prime is a good steakhouse but there are better options for a good steak when in Vegas. It has a nice atmosphere however but so does a lot of other Bellagio restaurants. Picasso or Le Cirque would be my choice @ Bellagio when looking for something special.

    I have to agree that Prime is excellent but it is a steakhouse----and their menu is not too different than most of the other steakhouses in LV....and their prices very much higher. I personally love Circo and Jasmine....tasting menus in both are just fabulous.

    Last time my wife and I stayed there we had lunch at Noodles. Highly recommend it as the Dim Sum was amazing at least to us it was. You pick from something that resembles a sushi menu what kind of dim sum you want then they bring a cart out and serve you what you ordered. Was really good, or I was just really hungry.
