I've been to Vegas 6 times in 9 years, so I pretty much have a gist of the place overall. I have stayed at Mandalay Bay, MGM Signature, HRH Towers, etc.
I'm trying to plan a girls' trip of 4. We are all in our early thirties. We are an energetic and fun bunch. We definitely want to go to the lounges, bars, and the pool parties. I was looking for a somewhat lively & nice pool atmosphere and a fun vibe overall for the hotel. I definitely didn't want a hotel with a too young-frat boy crowd..
I was looking at the MGM Grand or the Mirage to meet our needs & budget with 2 people sharing a room. However, my friend saw a deal for the Bellagio where if 4 of us split the room, we would get it for the same price as the MGM Grand/Mirage. My friend really wants to stay at the Bellagio.
I'm a bit iffy on 4 women sharing a room. I like to have space, but the bigger issue is that I'm worried that The Bellagio has a bit of a subdued atmosphere for my taste & perhaps an older crowd than what I'm looking for. I know it's a gorgeous hotel with wonderful service, but when I'm think "Lively hotel with an energetic atmosphere", The Bellagio doesn't come to mind.
Also, I was a bit shocked that their rooms aren't nothing to write home about. For the Bellagio, I thought they would have awesome rooms. They seem a bit worn & even the renovated rooms don't have as much of the amenities as the other hotels I've stayed in. I already told my friend that I want to stay in the Resort Deluxe Queen instead of the Resort Queen.
So I really need feedback and opinions on this as we are looking to book our trip by tomorrow. Should we stick to the Bellagio or go with Mirage or MGM. I haven't been to The Bellagio in 2 years. So has the vibe changed?
