Bellagio to refresh its hotel rooms in 2021 with nod to its fountains


New design will take its inspiration from the movement of water, colors of nature.

MGM Resorts International said it will undertake a remodel of all 2,568 guest rooms in the main tower of the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

The project will go through the summer, but the first selection of rooms will be available for guest stays beginning in April, officials with the company said.

Chicago-based interior design firm The Gettys Group will work with the MGM Resorts International Design Group. They said the design schemes were inspired by Bellagio’s iconic fountains, the movement of water, the beauty of nature, and the vibrant reflections of light seen at sunrise and sunset.

Some rooms will feature a blue palette reflective of the sky just before sunrise, while others will be designed around yellow tones inspired by the sky at sunset.

“Both designs encompass strong, bold elements that are soothing and calming for guests either beginning or ending their day,” the designers said in a statement.

“Bellagio visitors are among the world’s most discerning travelers and we want to ensure our guest rooms speak to their needs and desires for years to come,” said Ann Hoff, president and COO of Bellagio. “As the world returns to travel in the months and years ahead, Bellagio will be ready with this gorgeous new room product, as well as health and safety protocols throughout the resort to ensure guests feel welcome, comfortable and safe.”

Ben Nicholas, senior principal at The Gettys Group, added, “When tasked with redesigning the guest rooms for such an iconic resort, we wanted the designs to transcend cultures and speak to an international audience. We took inspiration from water, which is synonymous with Bellagio, and blended in elements of light and nature to create spaces that make guests feel at home.”
