Bellagio - Las Vegas

The one hotel I've always wanted to stay in was the Bellagio in Las Vegas - with a view of the fountain. Frivolous, I know. But one night of pure luxury was a nice treat at the end of the trip. Our room was on the 14th floor, about the 3 room from the left.

The lobby where you check in is gorgeous! It has a huge Chiluly glass ceiling and beautiful arrangements of fresh flowers everywhere. Very busy, but we were able to check in early.

The rooms are plush and comfortable. The beds have 7 pillows each and were very comfortable. Huge armoire with lighted shelves. Marble tiled bathroom. Lighted makeup mirror. Classy toiletries. (Yes, it's all about the cute little bottles of shampoo, of course!)

But the best part of the room was the window with the view of the fountain. Every half hour (15 minutes in the evening) there is a fountain show and you can listen to the music through your TV. It was way, way cool. Oh yes, and there were buttons on the wall to open and shut the sheers and the drapes - they were very fun to play with!

In the evening we had tickets to see "O" by Cirque du Soleil. This is the second time I've seen this show and it is spectacular. The stage is actually a huge pool in the center of the theater and the acts revolve around a water theme. Amazing show - except for the first half hour we had ushers and latecomers arguing about seating and tickets - so annoying!

I spent the rest of the night watching the fountain. We picked up pastries to go from the Jean- Philippe Pastisserie in the hotel and nibbled as we watched the show.

What a view, huh?
