The Bellagio overlooks a 12-acre lake replica of Italy's Lake Como, complete with a choreographed ballet of water, music and lights. Avoid the crowds watching the lake's famous fountain show while enjoying a cocktail in the Bellagio's Hyde Bar.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

The Bellagio is located at the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Boulevard in the heart of 'The Strip' and guests enter the lobby through a display of some 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers. Just beyond lies the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, displaying row upon row of exotic plants and flowers arranged in a theatrical presentation that varies with each season and major holiday.

The 3,933 (no, that isn't a typo) deluxe rooms and suites have views of the lake, the mountains and the Las Vegas skyline and feature European style furniture and art. Away from the rooms there are a mere 13 restaurants and boutiques from names such as Chanel, Armani, Prada, Gucci and Tiffany.

So, all very understated, then.

Why we love it
