I wrote last year about my stay in a Bellagio two bedroom penthouse suite. That was one of my earlier posts on Dine Drink Travel, and it was designed as a comprehensive review of my stay. We had the opportunity to stay in that suite again at the end of last month. This time, we also had a premier fountain view. In this post, I want to give you more information about the room rather than the hotel overall.
Check-in starts in the Chairman’s Lounge. While this experience is no longer free for all suite-holders, it is for those in this room. Chairman’s Lounge access can also be purchased for those in other rooms. I’ll be honest. Our experience started out a little bit rough. While we were greeted promptly and immediately taken to the front of the line, we were informed that we were downgraded to a one bedroom penthouse with an attached room. They also said they intended to charge us the same price for these accommodations. While that room was lovely, it wasn’t what we paid for. The one bedroom penthouse has a smaller living space, and the attached bedroom only had one bath and was missing some amenities. However, we returned to the lounge and were eventually assigned to our two bedroom penthouse.
It was worth the wait. Four adults (two couples) were staying in our room. There was also a third couple in another room, so we wanted to maximize the common gathering space. The living space has a couch, desk, and dining table. There is also a bar. It is much cheaper to bring your own drinks, but the bar was a lovely setting in which to serve them. Gathering here was a highlight of the trip for us.
The best feature of a Bellagio two bedroom penthouse are the his and hers bathrooms
Ultimately, however, the living space in a one-bedroom penthouse suite would also have been lovely. The more important reason for the two bedroom penthouse is that each bedroom comes with two full bathrooms. There is also a half-bathroom in the entry hall, although that is also true in the one bedroom penthouse. Designated as “his” and “hers,” the bathrooms offer slightly different amenities. Each has a toilet, closet, vanity, and a TV installed flush with the mirror. However, the “hers” bathroom also features and enormous soaking tub. This tub mas massage jets. Even a very tall person can stretch out, and two people can fit comfortably.
The “his” bathroom, on the other hand, features a shower. That shower has a steam feature which is amazing. It is as good as the steam room in most commercial spas. That is an amazing way to relax before or after a long day in Las Vegas.
Final thoughts on Bellagio penthouses
Surprisingly, Bellagio penthouse suites can be quite affordable. It depends, of course, on the time of the year and the day of the week. It also helps if you have a tier discount through the MLife program, and I very much recommend booking direct. However, our group really wanted a place where we could gather for cocktails before dinner. My wife and her friends were considered taking up residence in the bathrooms, and all of us enjoyed the premier fountain view. For a special occasion trip, the Bellagio two bedroom penthouse is hard to beat.
