Las Vegas which hotel?

Looking to book Las Vegas for February 2020. Like the look of The Venetian, Palazzo at the Venetian and The Bellagio. Has anyone stayed at any of these hotels? Are they nice? Are they central. Literally just starting to have a look. The prices are all roughly the same give or take 30 so nothing in price, or would you suggest another hotel although dont want cheap but happy with really nice not necessarily ultra luxurious. Thanks

I have stayed at The Bellagio and Mandalay Bay

The Bellagio is a classic traditional styled resort about halfway on the main Vegas Strip. Cirque Du Soleil "O" show is the resident show in the onsite theatre. The other feature is the fountains at the front of the hotel, which every so often put on a show set to music.

The Mandalay Bay resort is located at the end of the strip. It is a a more modern beach resort theme and has a younger crowd than The Bellagio Resort. Cirque Du Soleil "MJ ONE" show is the resident show in the onsite theatre.

Ive stayed at The Venetian, the standard rooms were great but I wasnt a fan of the pool areas. I doubt thatd be a concern in February though. Its a huge hotel and we timed that it took 15 minutes to get from the hotel room to the strip.

I do prefer the location of the Bellagio as its mid-way between walking up and down the strip. Ive not stayed there but would certainly consider it, especially in a fountain view room.

I've only stayed at the Bellagio and that was 8 or so years ago, so can't say what its like now however I have a couple of observations.

1) Check in was like a production line. Must have been about 20 to 30 check in agents. I asked for a fountain view room and was told "you haven't booked a fountain view maam". And that was that. Very unwelcoming, didn't feel like checking into a 300 a night hotel. I refuse to use the bribe tactics that folk sometimes write about in blogs etc.

2) Our room was a Bellagio Suite. I specifically booked it as it had his n hers bathrooms (plus guest toilet) and it didn't disappoint. I had a jacuzzi and DH had a steam shower in his. It was a fab room!

3) I'm a bit out of touch, but I believe Las Vegas has some smoke free hotels now, but I don't know which they are. If we go back, I'd definitely go for one of those.

Have stayed at both the Venetian and Bellagio. Absolutely loved both. Rooms at Venetian were better, but Bellagio is a better location mid strip. Would gladly stay at either again. In my opinion 2 of the best hotels on the strip. Any questions just ask.

Vdara is a lovely hotel and smoke free. All rooms have a fridge microwave and stove top. Gorgeous rooms. You can order extra shampoo etc and the little robot delivers them. So cute. Hotel smells gorgeous too. There is a walkway that connects it to Bellagio.
