In a city that thrives on change, we have to wonder if Bellagio will ever go out of style. Built by Steve Wynn in 1998, the 3,933-room resort still stands as the pinnacle of luxury at the center of the Strip. It attracts new money, old money, wannabe money, and everyone in between. Room rates aren't cheap, but the service and amenities make it worth every penny. Couples who fight over bathroom privileges should book a suite: They have two separate bathrooms, one with a steam shower and the other with a Jacuzzi tub. First-time visitors, ask for a room facing the iconic dancing fountains out front; the view of these is actually better from lower floors. The resort also has two amazing restaurants, Picasso and Le Cirque. The property expanded in 2004 with a new tower geared toward the wellness set with expansive bathrooms, easy access to the newly modernized spa, and a casino-free walk to guest rooms from the lobby. For some reason, the line at the concierge desk is one of the longest in Vegas, so call hotel information from your room with any questions.

Expect giant choreographed fountains out front, and a conservatory and gardens filled with "beautiful colorful flower arrangements" inside this Strip resort. Guest rooms are "warm and up-to-date" with contemporary furnishings, Italian-marble bathrooms, and "a feeling of openness." More than a dozen dining options include Jasmine's, serving Cantonese, Szechwan, and Hunan. "Staff are attentive to every need—from bellhop to room service." A night at the Petrossian Bar includes music from a Steinway grand and views of the casino from the velvet couches.
