Las Vegas at Night

View of Paris Paris Hotel Bellagio fountain from Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas at night
This is the view of Las Vegas that I had from my room at the Bellagio Hotel, which is now my favorite hotel! :)

Bellagio's Hotel in Las Vegas has this beautiful fountain, which is choreographed to music. This fountain is rated as one of the 10 best fountains in the world, so I figured it would qualify as scenic. The fountain "danced" to different songs every 15 minutes from 3:00 PM to midnight while I was there in May, 2009. My daughter and I watched the fountain about 12 times from our room, tuning to the channel of the TV that piped the fountains music into the room.

I asked the Bellagio staff for a great room for photography, and they gave me this room, which looked out on to the Hotel Paris Paris (with it's version of the Eiffel Tower) perfectly framed by the fountain. Bally's is to the left of the fountain, and Planet Hollywood is to the right of Paris Paris.

Sometimes it is worth it to upgrade your room, especially if you are a photographer.

Great photo! You certainly did get a room with a view. I've seen that fountain several times, but never from that direction.

What an amazing night scene with all these lights and reflections. This room is really worth its price.
Looking forward to see you at Macro Flowers Saturday with some beautiful flowers.
