Bellagio in Las Vegas Unveils Newly Redesigned Guest Rooms
LAS VEGAS (August 16, 2011) – Poised to set a new standard in luxury accommodations, Bellagio unveiled a fresh, elegant collection of newly redesigned rooms this week. Each of the three distinct color palettes was carefully created to further enhance the AAA Five Diamond guest experience at one of the world’s most iconic resorts.
“We want guests to feel inspired from the moment they step off the elevator,” said Randy Morton, president and chief operating officer of Bellagio. “The incredible combination of vibrant, yet warm, colors, beautiful botanical imagery and the overall crisp ambiance should set the tone for a very special experience.”
Created by the talented team at MGM Resorts International Design Group, the new rooms reflect an updated, elegant feel pairing modern conveniences with the warmth of home. Three unique designs elicit a distinct sensibility based on the colors and patterns utilized throughout each concept. The Resort King Rooms feature either an indigo and silver combination or a green tea and plum palette while the Resort Queen Rooms welcome guests with an amber and butterscotch motif. All three designs also are offered with the popular Lakeview option, overlooking the breathtaking and majestic Fountains of Bellagio.
The three color schemes incorporate the essence of Bellagio through botanical macro-photographic images displayed in the rooms and guest hallways, many of which were created exclusively for the hotel.
Providing a streamlined and contemporary focal point within each room, the dresser and connecting mirrored wardrobe are made of a deep, rich eucalyptus topped with a marshmallow smoke stone. Within this centerpiece, guests will find eight spacious drawers, a fully stocked mini-bar, a tray of snacks and novelties and a media connectivity hub.
The new room design creates enhanced functionality with the addition of benches at the end of each bed, brighter lighting in the bedroom and bathroom and a full-length mirror in the foyer. Guests also will enjoy the comfort of an ergonomically designed desk space and chair as well as two plush armchairs for those moments of relaxation.
Ensuring guests enjoy a restful sleep, each of the redesigned rooms features the luxurious new Bellagio at Home® mattress, developed by Serta®. The cashmere-covered mattress provides continuous support and temperature adjustment throughout the sleep cycle, making guests feel as comfortable at Bellagio as they would in their own home.
Convenient amenities can be found at every turn including a 40” mounted flat-screen television; a bedside iHome docking station; a centralized media hub designed to accommodate a variety of digital devices; electrical connections on the bedside lamps; and a laptop safe in one of the nightstands.
In keeping with Bellagio’s commitment to sustainability, the newly remodeled rooms incorporate environmentally responsible elements including: LED lighting in corridors and guest rooms providing 60 percent greater energy efficiency; organic carpeting primarily made from wool and furniture made from eucalyptus, both renewable resources; a new double towel bar in the bathroom for increased ability to dry and reuse towels; and a 180 percent improvement in air circulation from the previous room.
Bellagio began the $70 million remodel in June and anticipates all 2,568 Resort Rooms in the main tower will be complete by mid-December.
Inspired by the beautiful villages of Europe, the AAA Five Diamond Bellagio overlooks a Mediterranean-blue, eight-acre lake, where fountains perform a magnificent aquatic ballet choreographed to music and lights. Within Bellagio are award-winning dining experiences including two AAA Five Diamond restaurants, Julian Serrano's Picasso and Le Cirque from the renowned Maccioni family. The resort’s retail promenade, Via Bellagio, includes the luxury shops of Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Prada, Fred Leighton, Chanel, Dior and Fendi. A world-class art gallery, the exquisite Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, the stunning “O” by Cirque du Soleil®, a luxurious spa and salon and an elegant casino all add to the extraordinary Bellagio experience. Bellagio is a wholly owned subsidiary of MGM Resorts International™ (NYSE: MGM). For more information and reservations, visit www.bellagio.com or call toll free at (888) 987-6667.
