First Look: The Newly Renovated Rooms at Bellagio!
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: bellagio room renovations comments: 58
Recently, one of the jewelry industry's top conventions, JCK Las Vegas, made its way to Mandalay Bay. You may be wondering, "Why is this of any interest to me?" Simple. Because convention sales and group bookings are worth big money and under the MGM canopy, this means first dibs on things we've all been salivating to see.
Things like the newly renovated rooms at Bellagio.
Fortunately for us, one of our loyal readers was at JCK and eager to grab a few shots.
Bellagio's guest room hallways were outdated before the resort even opened in '98. Now they're elegant with just a hint of edge. We're not crazy about the wall coverings, but that asymmetrical floral pattern with black foliage on one side is awesome. Light fixtures seem to be unchanged.
The sleeping area. The wall grabs your attention and not in a good way. Perhaps it works better in person as we can better see the flowery motive between the throw pillow and wallpaper. The headboard definitely doesn't scream "luxury hotel," but the white marble atop the nightstands make a beautiful combo against the green.
The work area and window. The embroidered sheers are lovely and can be appreciated while the blackout curtains are closed. Yes, the sheers are in front of the blackout curtains. Odd.
The lounge area features art that carries over the design motive of the sheers. The green velour seating and carpeting is gorgeous - totally loving it.
More of that white marble adorns the bar and media area replacing what was once the largest behemoth of an armoire in all of Las Vegas. The deep browns work beautifully with the green. Closet panels carry over design influences from the hallway framing a multidirectional television that swivels both ways, extends out, and even tilts up and down. Way cool.
Little has changed in the bathroom. A new mirror features lighting embedded inside while basic fixtures are a tad sleeker. Toiletry containers and ceramics have received a refresh as well, but they neglected to add a small television. Even Flamingo's "Go" rooms have TVs near the toilet - come on!
There's no denying a few odd/cheap design choices, but we're overall pleased to see a long overdue refreshment of Bellagio's standard rooms. The main tower will be completed first followed by the Spa tower deep into 2012.
On somewhat of a side note, while reviewing these pictures, everything seemed oddly familiar. The wood paneling design against the mirrored closet door, the white marble against the green carpet... Clearly, whoever designed Bellagio's newest rooms loved the Encore Tower Suites lobby. Not a bad place to get inspiration from.
Huge thanks to VT reader Isaac for sending over the shots and info!
