Luxury casinos in Las Vegas usually renovate their hotel rooms every six or seven years. MGM Resorts recently announced that it will renovate the majority of the hotel rooms at Bellagio. The timing lines up perfectly as Bellagio rooms were renovated in 2015. Add six years to that date and you’re in 2021.
Bellagio was one of the first MGM Resorts properties to reopen after Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak ordered casinos to close in 2021 to help slow the spread of coronavirus. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the crowned jewel of MGM Resorts in Las Vegas will also be the first to see a major makeover.
The upgraded rooms will be offering refreshing new guest room designs and upgraded in-room amenities. The new design will incorporate the current trends in sophisticated, contemporary travel.
The room remodel at Bellagio will continue through the summer. The first collection of rooms available for guest stays beginning in April.
Bellagio Room Renovations
The room renovations at Bellagio will encompass all 2,568 guest rooms in the resort’s main tower. This is the hotel tower near the lobby with unobstructed views of the fountain show. The remaining rooms in the north tower near the sportsbook will not receive a makeover.
“Bellagio visitors are among the world’s most discerning travelers and we want to ensure our guest rooms speak to their needs and desires for years to come,” said Ann Hoff, president & COO of Bellagio. “As the world returns to travel in the months and years ahead, Bellagio will be ready with this gorgeous new room product, as well as health and safety protocols throughout the resort to ensure guests feel welcome, comfortable and safe.”
The new room designs at Bellagio take inspiration from the movement of water, the beauty of nature, and the vibrant reflections of light seen at sunrise and set. Featuring a luxurious oversized shower, dual sinks, a built-in closet, and an activity table, Bellagio’s new guest rooms reflect thoughtful use of each space.
New Bellagio Room Design
The new Bellagio hotel room design was created by Chicago based award-winning interior design firm The Gettys Group in partnership with MGM Resorts International Design Group.
There are two new room designs for the main tower at Bellagio. Both room patterns find inspiration from Bellagio’s famed Fountains and highlight nuances of nature and light throughout. Rooms with a single King bed will have a blue color palette. Hotel rooms with two queen beds will feature a yellow color palette.
Both designs will encompass strong, bold elements that are soothing and calming for guests either beginning or ending their day.
Ben Nicholas, senior principal at The Gettys Group, said:
“When tasked with redesigning the guest rooms for such an iconic resort, we wanted the designs to transcend cultures and speak to an international audience. We took inspiration from water, which is synonymous with Bellagio, and blended in elements of light and nature, to create spaces that make guests feel at home.”
The Premier King Room features a blue palette reflective of the sky just before sunrise. The Premier Two Queen Room design features yellow tones inspired by the sky at sunset.
Inside The Design Concept
The new designs include bespoke features on either side of the bed and around the TV media center. The rooms will feature a spacious built-in closet and two comfortable, multipurpose seating nooks. If you know me, you know I love a good seating nook in a hotel room.
The bathrooms will also see a renovation. This space will have an array of natural stones including granite and a variety of marbles. The bathrooms at Bellagio will no longer have a tub. Instead, rooms will have an oversized shower featuring an open doorless entry and breathtaking marble throughout.
The dual-sink granite vanity illuminated by backlit interlocking mirrors encircled by mother of pearl is a striking design element.
