The Bellagio embarks on another major room renovation project

A wave of renovation projects has hit the hotel industry in Las Vegas.

Take the Bellagio, for example. The beloved, AAA Five Diamond Award-winning resort completed an extensive $70 million overhaul of the rooms in its main tower early this year. There were 2,568 of them, to be exact. And today, the Bellagio announced it is about renovate all 928 of the rooms and suites in the hotel’s second tower – the Spa Tower.

“The Spa Tower remodel will broaden our distinct selection of luxury accommodations and strengthen our commitment to the overall evolution of the Bellagio experience,” said Randy Morton, the president and COO of Bellagio.

The 33-story Spa Tower stands to the south of the Bellagio’s main tower. It opened on Dec. 23, 2004, just over six years after the resort itself was unveiled in 1998. In addition to accommodations, you’ll find an upscale restaurant (Sensi), four specialty shops, 70,000 square feet of meeting space and the property’s spa and salon component here. The Spa Tower was built at an estimated cost of $375 million. This new remodeling project is expected to total $40 million.

The updates made to the 819 guest rooms in the Spa Tower will be consistent with those done in the Bellagio’s main tower. Thus, there will be three designs with distinct color palettes:  indigo and silver, green tea and plum, and amber and butterscotch.

The décor elements of these rooms will also be carried into the Spa Tower’s 109 suites, which range in size from the spacious 850-square-foot Salon suites to the magnificent 4,000-square-foot Chairman and Presidential suites.

“The new designs and layouts of the suites are exquisite and complement the contemporary ambiance we’ve created throughout the resort,” added Morton.

The transformation of the suites doesn’t stop there. As part of this renovation project, the Bellagio will introduce three brand new Executive Hospitality suites. They are being designed with high-tech amenities to appeal to savvy, entertainment-oriented guests. Each of these 2,500-square-foot suites will boast a billiards lounge along with a separate living area that has a state-of-the-art home theater.

The remodeling of the Spa Tower will begin on Aug. 19. It’s expected to be completed by December – in time for the holiday season, including New Year’s Eve. Just imagine the party you could throw in one these stunning rooms and suites!


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+.
