Bellagio

Luxe resort is still the model for new Vegas’ casinos. Featured in Ocean’s Eleven, comes complete with designer boutiques, Michelin-level eateries, and a caper-worthy art gallery. Centerpiece is the faux-Italian lake, whose choreographed fountains explode to showtunes every 15-30 minutes. Guests are high-rollers mixed in with a few middle-brows seeing how the other half lives. Elegant casino fitted with luxurious drapes, plush carpets, Dale Chihuly-crafted check-in chandelier, and a LeRoy Niemann poker room mural. Glittery Club Prive, high-limit lounge and the exclusive Bobby’s Room poker pit are set aside for big gamers. If you clean up at the tables, Prada, Chanel, Gucci, and Dior are a only a few steps away in the Via Bellagio shops–or drop your bounty caviar facials and Egyptian gold body treatment at the marble-paved spa. Pool area continues upscale Italianate motif. Rooms are good-sized, heavily upholstered, and a tad bland. Jumbo-sized, movie-star bathrooms stocked with magnifying mirrors, high-end toiletries and plush robes. Electrically operated black-out curtains aid hangover recovery.
