Bellagio brings suite dreams to life

The elegance and charm of the Fountains of Bellagio don’t end at the shoreline of the property’s man-made lake – they extend 33 stories up in the air to the recently redesigned accommodations in the Spa Tower, where a $40 million renovation project wrapped up last week.

“The completion of the Spa Tower remodel marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the Bellagio guest experience,” said Randy Morton, president and chief operating officer of Bellagio.

A billiards table and media lounge are two of the lavish entertainment options in the newly launched executive parlor suites at Bellagio.

Encompassing all 928 rooms and suites in the Spa Tower, this major overhaul, which began in August 2012, followed in the footsteps of another massive undertaking – the refurbishment of the 2,568 digs in the Bellagio’s main tower, which cost $70 million.

The Spa Tower stands to the south of the 36-story main tower. It opened on Dec. 23, 2004, just over six years after the resort itself was unveiled in 1998.

Several aspects of updating the Spa Tower’s accommodations have been consistent with what was done in the main tower. For example, the same three color palettes were utilized: indigo and silver, green tea and plum, and amber and butterscotch. Plus, in keeping with Bellagio’s commitment to sustainability, the remodeled rooms now incorporate environmentally friendly elements, such as energy-efficient lighting, organic carpeting and a new double bar in the bathrooms to increase the ability to dry and reuse towels. Another benefit has been a 180 percent improvement in air circulation, which is truly a boon in terms of heating and cooling efforts.

Dubbed the “resort rooms,” there are now 819 resort king and resort queen accommodations available to guests in the Spa Tower. Both measure 510 square feet and come with chic furnishings and décor, luxurious linens and 40-inch flat-screen HDTVs with media hubs, so you can connect and charge all of your personal devices.

The Spa Tower also has a selection of more than 100 redesigned suites. These range from the more intimate 850-square-foot salone suites, which boast spectacular oversized windows that showcase the Las Vegas skyline, to the up to 2,000-square-foot penthouse suites, which offer a stylish urban design as well as a separate master bedroom, a living room with a dining area, and his and her bathrooms with a steam shower and whirlpool soaking tub, respectively.

In addition, as part of the Spa Tower renovation project, Bellagio is proud to introduce three new executive parlor suites – which are simply the stuff of fantasy.

“We continue to seek ways not only to create new experiences and fresh spaces, but also to maintain the superior Five Diamond service synonymous with Bellagio,” added Morton.

The executive parlor suites are huge, spanning 2,500 square feet. With so much space, they provide numerous ways to entertain occupants. There’s not only a game room with a billiards table and a bar, but also a dedicated media lounge with an Xbox and a Blu-ray Disc player. Alternatively, there are many places to retreat from others – like on the cashmere-covered custom Bellagio at Home mattress with a good book – so you can enjoy your privacy amid the most luxurious of surroundings. The executive parlor suites also feature the one-touch Creston remote system, which puts control of all the room’s technology (everything from the motorized drapes to the lights and climate) right at your fingertips.

With these elaborate new suites as well as every room on the property having gone through a contemporary, high-tech makeover, Bellagio is sure to provide every one of its guests the most memorable and lavish hotel stay in Las Vegas imaginable.

I’m a Las Vegas native. By profession, I write at Mostly about the city’s hotels, but on other topics – gaming and transportation – too. I really love staying at hotels. And the ones here are among the biggest and best in the world. Some key things I’ve learned: Resort fees are inescapable (frustrating but true), a friendly attitude at the front desk may score you a great view and over-the-top room amenities – bath butlers, Japanese tea service, menus with “intimate” items – do exist. What else should you know about me? Well, I’m comfortable at a blackjack table. And I like eating late-night pancakes in hotel coffee shops. A lot. Follow Renee on Google+.
