Then And Wow: Remembering The Transformation Of Bellagio's Rooms

Way back in 2007, our sister site HotelChatter was not impressed with the rooms at Bellagio, one of the premier (obviously) hotels on The Strip. For all the talk about Bellagio being the best in town, we found the room decor to be nondescript, non sequential, and non-stylish. It was dominated by a massive brown armoire which overpowered the room. In the bathroom, we found some very questionable wallpaper. We also noticed a stain on the headboard. See for yourself just how "BLAH" this room was in 2007 in the video below.

Well, it took a few years, but Bellagio finally upgraded their guest rooms in 2011 and, boy, was it an improvement.

While The Strip Is Changing, Which Three Casinos Are Stuck In The Past?

May 29, 2014 at 1:51 PM | by | Comments (27)

This year, things are really moving on The Strip. The Cromwell and High Roller are off and running, Ballyís is getting Bazaar, and room renovations are (finally) underway at The Quad. And, thatís just center Strip. Thereís action at the ends of The Strip as well; rooms are being revealed at The Delano and Resorts World is taking steps towards reality.

In all the excitement, itís easy to forget about those places that havenít changed. Here at VegasChatter, weíre keeping track. We think itís time the three casino-hotels listed below wake from their slumbers and give us something to get excited about.

When We Might Be Able To Book Renovated Rooms At The Quad

In March, we learned The Quad's room remodel was just weeks away from beginning. Now, we can confirm they are, indeed, underway.

Although quite a few VegasChatter readers have reported receiving sneak peeks of the model rooms, we've yet to see them ourselves or uncover design renderings. (If you have some you want to share on the down low, send them our way.)

South Point Isn't Done Bringing The New

South Point is spending $35 million to bring the Priefert Pavilion, an expansion of its event arena and the addition of a tournament bowling facility, to Vegas this summer. But, that's not the only part of the hotel-casino receiving an infusion of new.

The not technically on the Strip, but still on Las Vegas Boulevard property is spending another $3 mil to make improvements in other areas, too. The most noticeable is taking place on the casino floor. Or, rather, to the casino floor.

Bally's Opens Renovated Rooms For Stays

Where: 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Sometimes even we fall victim to Murphy's law. The same day we called Bally's out for blandness of all blandness, property reps announced that those promised room renovations were available to enjoy.

In June, Bally's execs announced that the property's South tower would be relabeled Jubilee and would feature renovated "ultra modern" accommodations. At the time, November 1 was the earliest available date for bookings, but that changed yesterday. There are now 756 redesigned rooms to crash in and each starts at $99 a night, according to a press release. While the rooms did not get any bigger, they do feature new flat-screen TVs, furniture, beds, carpeting and wall coverings as well as redesigned bathrooms, too. This, however, can not be said for the tower's suites, nor for the north tower, period. We're promised more news on the Jubilee tower's suites "later this year."

Back on the good news front, though, in-room safes are now "complimentary." We just ranted about the WTF $3 safe charge on top of the resort fee. Clearly, our work here is now done.

We stayed in one and were better for it. Even if SNL did poke a little fun at them.

The New Looks Of Four Bellagio Suites

February 18, 2013 at 7:37 PM | by | Comment (1)

By now, you've probably seen the new looks of Bellagio's standard accommodations. You may have even stayed in one. (Especially, since they first started coming online back in August of 2011.) But, have you seen the new designs of its suites? Chances are, you may not have as they just recently became complete.

VegasChatter received tours of the resort's newly renovated Bellagio Suite (read: stay here if you want a separate living room and bedroom), Executive Hospitality Suite (read: conference room included), Executive Parlor Suite (read: pool table featured), and the singular 4,705-square-foot, Strip-facing Chairman Suite atop the hotel's Spa Tower (read: if you have to ask how much...). We compiled our snapshots of each into the photo galleries you see below. After you check them out, let us know what you think!

Do You Know The Newly Remodeled Hotel?

January 9, 2013 at 11:54 PM | by | Comments (6)

Ok, all you Vegas smarty pants. We've got what, we think, might be a tough one for you. Newly remodeled hotel accommodations that you may not have heard about yet. Or, if you have, actually seen. Take a close look at the renovated room above and then leave your best guess as to the hotel that claims it below. Need some clues first? Here are a few:

●This hotel is not on the Strip.
●The renovation is part of a multi-million dollar refresh that also included the casino floor. (We won't say how much lest you try to Google it!)
●More locals than tourists head here.
●It has just two dining spots.

Three New Things At Golden Nugget

New rooms can't just be found at the Plaza, Golden Gate, the D and El Cortez in downtown Vegas. Now, the Golden Nugget is stepping up their game, too.

A month ago, it debuted newly remodeled Gold Club accommodations in the Rush Tower. Accessed by key card only, the new digs now offer a more manly palette of dark brown, tan and crisp white. (See what they looked like before here.) Rooms also feature plasma screen televisions, too. A standard room is shown above while a suite and a bathroom can be seen below.

The Quad Rooms Will Remain Among The Cheapest On The Strip For A Reason

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
November 29, 2012 at 7:51 PM | by | Comments (11)

The biggest mystery about the changeover of the Imperial Palace to The Quad has been about the rooms.

Most press from the changeover has focused on the casino part of The Quad and not the hotel. For a while, there was speculation and rumors that the rooms would be renovated along with the rest of the casino. Why not assume that an entire hotel and casino remodel would include the rooms? When the news was released the Las Vegas Review Journal pointed out that rooms were not scheduled as part of the renovation.

Hotel rooms have been discussed as part of the renovation but, coyly, have never been said to be renovated. Note how rooms are mentioned in between actual renovations in this article in†Vegas Inc.

We dished the deets on Four Seasons' plans for a renovation back in June and showed you the rooms to come in August. Now, that refreshment is officially underway.

Four Seasons Las Vegas began posting remodeling photos on its Facebook page two weeks ago. The renovation will bring all new digs to the resort by December 8, including the addition of two new Hospitality Suites. (One of which you see under construction above.) Check out the photo gallery to see what $30 million buys you these days. And, click here to see what the rooms looked like before.
