Feb. 28, 2013--The Bellagio has finished remodeling 928 rooms in its Spa Tower, including three new spacious suites.
The new rooms are the completion of a $40 million renovation to the tower that began last summer at the Las Vegas Strip casino.
"The completion of the Spa Tower remodel marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the Bellagio guest experience," said Randy Morton, the Bellagio's president and chief operating officer. "We continue to seek ways not only to create new experiences and fresh spaces, but also to maintain the superior five-diamond service synonymous with Bellagio."
The new Executive Parlor Suites are 2,500-square foot spaces with a billiards lounge and home theater. The remodeled Resort Rooms incorporate energy-efficient lighting in corridors and guest rooms and used renewable resources, such as wool carpeting and eucalyptus furniture.
The MGM Resorts International Design Group began the work last August as the last phase of a $70 million renovation that included the main tower and 3,387 rooms.
