Bellagio Las Vegas 2021

People typically don't think of Vegas as being top choice for a family vacation. However, I challenge that notion. I have family in Las Vegas and have usually ended up traveling to Las Vegas every couple of years. There's plenty for the entire family to do in Vegas. I will admit your stay in Vegas will be incomplete if you don't have a traveling sitter or relatives traveling with you to watch younger kiddos while you enjoy all that Vegas nightlife and entertainment has to offer. Keep that in mind! 

We have stayed in hotels from ranging from 1 star to 5 star (Motel 6, Palace Station, The Strat, New York New York, Bellagio to name a few). The Bellagio is hands down the nicest hotel we've stayed in while visiting Vegas. 

So I'll first focus on our  Bellagio stay.

We stayed in the "Fountain View King" room, which rang in at $367/night (April of 2021). Booking through MGM using your rewards card will get you points and discounted rates. 


Bellagio Room Service 

The Bellagio room service for breakfast was a nice option. I usually wouldn't treat myself to such an expensive breakfast, but for this occasion I did. I decided to order a bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast wrap, and ended up receiving this breakfast sandwich instead. The sandwich was a nice alternative and I didn't mind the mix up. I also ordered the brioche French toast, which came with delicious fresh berries. Yum. The Mai Tai came premade in a cute bottle. As for taste, its definitely not the best Mai Tai I've had. The best part of the room service breakfast was being able to enjoy my meal while looking out at the Bellagio fountains. Overall, the breakfast was delicious and left me feeling like a queen during my mommy stay without kids. Was it worth the $75 I paid? I'd say, definitely not.

Salt & Ivy 

I was underwhelmed by the Bellagio lunch and dinner options and felt the prices were quite high for the selections. 

I decided to walk over to Aria and had lunch at Salt & Ivy. I ordered the Chicken & Waffles from the lunch menu and went with the lollipop drum sticks, which was the chef's special of the day.

Both entrees were delicious and did not disappoint.

The two entrees cost $41.


New York, New York
Las Vegas

We stayed in the "Park Avenue King" room which cost $92/night (August 2020). 

Our room overlooked the Big Apple Coaster, which was nice. Speaking of which, the Big Apple Coaster  will cost you between $14-$18 per ride, per rider. The hotel has a nice arcade, the Big Apple Arcade. There are packages you can purchase that include a Big Apple Coaster ticket and arcade credits starting around $50/package. 


New York, New York Room Service

Delicious, Delicious, Delicious. One of the best steaks I've had in Vegas. I was impressed by the variety and the prices of menu items. Especially when compared to Bellagio room service prices. The steak was a nice treat. You'd be able to find cheaper breakfast options in the casino. The meal cost $41.
