    Friend of mine had a business meeting that was moved from the mirage to the bellagio. He told me that the rooms were somewhat run down. Not dirty just starting to show its age.

    I am a mlife player and have comps across the board. Non mlife properties are not going to happen as I don't have comps.

    I've stayed at Aria corner suite (strip view). My upcoming stay is at Bellagio (tower resort king fountain view) the one that is slightly larger than standard king room.

    Can't get corner suite comped again at Aria, only standard room.

    Chose bellagio because I have never stay there and it's a vegas classic (at least in my opinion). Want to enjoy my room when I'm in there and the surroundings. Been to bellagio before but for no more than two hours. Switching it up to bellagio because it's a solo trip. Welcome any opinions on the property.

    First of all, i have never stayed at Bellagio, but i have stayed at most MGM properties. The last few years i have only stayed at CET because i get comps. I do however spend lots of time at Bellagio at the Lake as well as inside the property.
    I love Bellagio, and if Bellagio was a Caesars Hotel that would be my home base. Even if i had to pay more than i usually do.
    I go solo, and i have never seen the rooms in person at Bellagio, but even if they are run down (as some people say), i'd rather spend my stay in a run down room at Bellagio than every other Caesars hotel room.
    I love Caesars Palace and loved the rooms.........but to me Bellagio is still the one i have always wanted to stay at.
    I'm too deep into comps at Caesars now to make a switch.

    I envy you, good luck.

    I have never had a problem in a Bellagio room. Granted, for a few years now I have stayed on the suite floors, but I am fairly certain they renovated all the standard rooms just a few years ago.

    Might look into suite upgrade. I think the entry level suite is the salone suite. Might do that one. In my opinion there is a big difference between standard rooms and suites at the high end resorts. Not just more space. Service at Aria tower suites was amazing, I could only imagine the sky suites.

    I stayed in a Bellagio Room last November, no complaints, it was quite nice.

    HI DN, we usually stay at Aria as well. I have stayed at Bellagio and enjoyed the stay. I wouldn't say they're dated, just not quite as high-tech/glossy as something like Aria....but you definitely should enjoy your stay. I still like a standard Aria room better, but absolutely think Bellagio is a great option. And some prefer it, depends on your personal preference. (Plus you get to try a different hotel!)

    PS On Aria corner suites...if your mlife mirrors my offers...they give me standard rooms summer and fall, but my spring offer has been for a corner suite the last two years. So fingers crossed, you might get this in the spring too :)

    Here's my short video of the saloon suite when I stayed in it 2 years ago.

    Just an FYI, the salone suites are not on the suite levels. They are on the standard floors at the end of the hallways. They are bigger than the standard room, but just wanted to make sure you know what you are getting

    Bellagio renovated all of its rooms and suites over a four year period from 2011 to 2015. Last year I was comped in a standard Bellagio room and it was perfectly fine, however the decor still looks like it was picked out by the CEO's grandmother. The plain old standard Aria room, however is much nicer - it is sleek and modern with a HUGE bathroom (including a very large glassed in separate shower and tub).

    If it's something you really want to try, and it's a comp, go ahead - it's not as if you are going to wake up in a cold sweat to find out you accidentally picked Circus Circus!!! They are both in the perfect mid strip location, although getting directly to the Strip while staying at Bellagio is a bit easier than from Aria, if that is a consideration (from Aria you would obviously have to either walk all the way through Bellagio or via Crystals or Cosmo to access the Strip. You will have a fantastic time regardless of which one you choose!

    I last stayed in Bellagio last September, so this info may be out of date, but at the time almost all rooms had been upgraded (new wallpaper, colour scheme etc), but not all rooms. The lower level rooms (I think floors 28-38??) were not upgraded and looked dated. We were actually originally put into one of these rooms but moved after a coupe of nights as our "Neighbours" were smoking a lot of pot and it was stinking out our room. There was quite a difference between the standard room that had been upgraded and the one that had not.

    In 2012 I stayed in a room in the Spa Tower and it was great. I was there for a conference and on company dime, once the conference was over I splurged for a basic fountain view room for the final night (or was it two nights?). That room was renovated. Neither room was run down then and I can't see how a room can be run down after only 5 years or so after being renovated. Somebody likely has high and picky standards.

    I would say the B is a step up from the Mirage where it was originally going to be held.

    Many of the rooms have been renovated. Ask for one when you check in, if they have any available.

    The rooms at the B are fine. ---Granted they are in color..and not the high tech grey and black/brown...which to me gets boring. We were there two weeks ago and the carpet looked new as did the linens. We stay there for the service..which is always excellent.

    I have stayed in a Bellagio Queen Room (last Fall) and found it to be great. It doesn't have the swank of the suites, but it is very comfortable and well-sized for a regular room. I'm staying in one again in 3 weeks! Have fun and good luck!

    I love playing there, but you can definitely tell that Steve Wynn does not own it anymore.

    To OP, you may as well give it a try especially if you are comped.

    I had always wanted to stay at Bellagio and finally did so in April, however my room was like brown & gold d├ęcor, some hairs in the bathroom, noisy plumbing, a lot of noise from under the door so had to put pillows in front of at night. But sounds like you have a better class of room, and my experience wasn't horrible, just disappointing from what I had built up in my head! I didn't know they had remodeled rooms.

    I checked out and went to Harrah's new Valley Tower, much better for me, room & casino. To be fair, the main reason I moved was because I found the casino boring, not so much the room. But I'm glad I tried Bellagio.
