The Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas is beautifully fabulous! It was my absolute favorite of the hotels we managed to see (Luxor was second and then Mandeley). The Italianate decor was beautiful, showing great attention to detail: very tasteful indeed, even down to the way the carpet was woven (very like old tapestries). The quality of the place shows in lots of different ways and exudes opulence.
The garden displays change seasonally, so I’ve been told. When we were there, the theme seemed to be Spring which focused on gardening, giant watering cans, an old potting shed full of gigantic moths fluttering about! The perfume from the flower displays was overwhelming and quite delightful!
The Fountain show is tremendous. Even I had a tear in my eye listening to the Star Spangled Banner and watching the waters stand to attention, before thrusting their exuberence in an ostentatious show of patriotism. Quite moving and very uplifting…and I’m not even American, but it brought a lump to my throat!
