Bellagio's Bathtub Controversy

MtM Vegas – Bellagio’s Bathtub Controversy

This week we have so much to talk about including the controversy over Bellagio’s renovated bathrooms plus Vegas moving back to 100% capacity. Before we dive in don’t forget to subscribe to the Miles to Memories YouTube channel to see every episode plus our Vegas reviews, guides and tours!

This Week’s MtM Vegas

This week we learned that one of the most historic Vegas casinos was finally sold. Tropicana Las Vegas will soon have new owners, but what does it mean for this aging property and for the South part of the Vegas Strip? Don’t forget to checkout our article about the sale and my full video review of Tropicana from this past Fall.

We also learned that Las Vegas will be going back to 100% capacity with social distancing requirements being eliminated. How will this impact Summer crowds in Las Vegas. Will this be the busiest Summer ever for tourism in Southern Nevada?

During the show we’ll also talk about how Cosmo is paying employees to get vaccinated, how Caesars is once again increasing prices and we’ll debate Bellagio’s new room renovations and whether the elimination of the bathtub in their rooms is a gamechanger. (Check out my full video of Bellagio’s new rooms.)

Bellagio’s Bathtub Controversy – Bottom Line

Despite the controversy over Bellagio’s lack of tubs, it does seem their renovations are receiving mostly positive marks and I have to agree the rooms look nice. As for Vegas going back to 100%, I am excited for Sin City to make its comeback and I hope Bally’s does something nice to Trop. What do you think?

  1. I enjoy a shower and then a good soak after long walks on the Strip, especially in the summer. I think I’ll skip the new Bellagio. Granted many renovations take the easy way out with showers only.

    I like summer in Vegas. I’ll bet some spend their whole trip inside, but it would be a shame for anybody to miss out in Red Rock Canyon.

    Of course part of the reason I’ve liked summers was the lesser crowds and lower rates. That may not be the same this year.
