This year we were celebrating my fiancés birthday and I wanted this to be a special trip so I decided that I wanted to splurge a little and stay at the Bellagio. I've stayed at the Bellagio before and I'll tell you once you stay here, you won't want to go anywhere else.On this trip our main focus was to relax and have a few days to ourselves, the Bellagio made this easy for us to do. Our room was incredible as usual and this time we had a pool view. Our standard room had a marble and granite entry and bathroom, large soaking tub and separate shower, beautifully decorated room and a comfortable bed. Between the piano bar, conservatory, fountains and the excellent dining we felt very content...Read More

The Palazzo Hotel opened in December of 2007 which makes it one of the newest hotels on the Las Vegas strip at the moment. The Palazzo hotel is basically an expansion of The Venetian Hotel and they both connect through the Venetian’s Grand Canal shopping center and the Shoppes at the Palazzo.One interesting movie tidbit that I discovered was that The Palazzo while under construction was used in an early scene in the movie Oceans Thirteen. The Palazzo has more of a modern Italian theme rather than the old world charm of the Venetian Hotel. The Palazzo was designed with soft muted color tones on the inside giving it a sophisticated and elegant feeling. While this hotel has plenty...Read More

Village Seafood Buffet

I was excited to see that the Village Seafood Buffet had been remodeled since my last trip. I’ve always enjoyed their food but thought their décor was a little old feeling. With the remodel they redid the floor, tables, food stations and even their dishes. There was allot of metallic silver and blue colors while the floor had some hardwood tones with allot of metallic accents. My fiancé and I made a pact to get their early because we’ve always had an hour or longer wait. We ended up getting there when they opened at 4pm and got right in. The nice thing was we had the place pretty much to ourselves. This Buffet has everything Seafood: lobster (although its small it’s good), crab leg...Read More

While strolling through the Grand Canal Shops at the Venetian Hotel, my fiancé hinted that he would like to try some Italian food for dinner. We finally found a restaurant called Canaletto that we both thought we might enjoy. Of course being dinner time and in the midst of Saint Marks Square during one of the music performances, the restaurant was full but we decided to put our names in and wait for a spot.Everything went smoothly, our table was ready when they said it would be and we had a great spot close to the front of the restaurant where we could look out onto the crowd of people in the square. The inside of the restaurant was simple yet elegant with rich dark woods and white linen...Read More
