Recognized worldwide as a leader in luxury hospitality, Bellagio has begun the remodel of all 403 suites in the resort’s main tower. This marks the final phase of an approximately $165 million investment into the newly designed rooms and suites that began in 2011.

 

After redesigning 2,568 Resort Rooms in the Bellagio Tower in 2011, the AAA Five Diamond resort followed up with a remodel of all 928 Resort Rooms and suites in its Spa Tower in 2012. The completion of the remaining suites in the Bellagio Tower is expected by February 2015.

 

“We want to ensure that all of our guests enjoy the same exquisite luxury and design  Bellagio is known for the world over, no matter which room or suite they may choose,” said Randy Morton, president and COO of Bellagio. “A great deal of thought went into every element of these spaces and we’re thrilled to begin the final phase of this project.”

 

Created by the talented MGM Resorts International Design Group, the suites will offer refined furnishings with high-style surfaces such as lacquer and exotic wood graining as well as sumptuous fabrics influenced by modern fashion. Key design elements and color themes will be consistent with the recently unveiled suites in the Spa Tower, along with a new color palette of spring greens and Dragonfruit pink meant to promote rejuvenation of the spirit.

 

Remodeled suites in the Bellagio Tower will be available for reservation for stays beginning early November by calling 702.693.7111 or visiting bellagio.com .

The Forum Shops at Caesars Hits 20 Year Milestone of High Fashion and Luxury Brands

THE FORUM SHOPS AT CAESARS IN LAS VEGAS
CELEBRATES MILESTONE 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Iconic Retail and Dining Destination Introduced High Fashion, Luxury Brands and
Celebrity Chefs to Las Vegas Retail When the Doors Opened in May 1992

Home to Many Las Vegas Firsts, Including: Versace, Fendi, Wolfgang Puck, Dior,
John Varvatos, Nike, Valentino, Juicy Couture, and Ted Baker London



What do Fendi, Versace, Dior, Varvatos, Ted Baker, Valentino and Puck all have in common besides great style and flair?  They all first opened in Las Vegas at The Forum Shops at Caesars. When the Forum Shops opened their doors 20 years ago in 1992 the concept of couture, high-fashion, luxury and celebrity chefs had not yet made its way to the shopping malls of the desert playground.  When Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE:SPG), the world’s leading retail real estate company, unveiled its distinctive Roman streetscape, sky-painted ceilings and an array of shopping and dining which had never before existed in Las Vegas, The Forum Shops at Caesars immediately became a Las Vegas institution. Today, 20 years after opening, it remains one of the highest grossing shopping centers in the world.


Perfectly situated in the heart of Las Vegas – right on the center of the famed Strip, the concept for The Forum Shops broke all the standard rules for shopping mall success — and Las Vegas.  There were no anchor stores to drive the traffic and luxury retailers had never before made the journey to the famed city.  Now, after two expansions bringing the square footage to nearly 700,000, The Forum Shops is recognized around the globe for its unique combination of top retail, dining, entertainment, excellent location and exciting ambiance featuring 145 specialty shops and 15 restaurants.

While celebrating its past, The Forum Shops has its eye firmly on the future and will launch a series of social media and web-based firsts in honor of the milestone accomplishment, including a 20th Anniversary Pinterest profile ( http://pinterest.com/theforumshops) featuring one-of-a-kind photos from 1992-2012, and Instagram profile ( http://instagrid.me/theforumshops) and a unique campaign utilizing Rdio ( http://www.rdio.com/#/people/TheForumShops/) to house 20 distinctive Forum Shops music mixes from each year it has been open so that people can download and share their favorite tunes.  With the advent of Facebook’s new Timeline feature, the Forum shops Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/forumshops) will highlight the last 20 years of fashion and history, as well as be the home-base for a unique digital scavenger hunt.


Additionally, to thank the millions of patrons who have visited The Forum Shops over the years, as well as to say thank you to their loyal local customers who call Las Vegas home, a series of contests and promotions will be launched in April featuring twenty $1000 Shopping Sprees.


With over 25 million visitors annually, The Forum Shops ranks as one of Las Vegas’ top attractions and continues to inspire retail and fashion trends across the globe. As an icon in the retail industry, The Forum Shops success has been driven by continuous reinvention; attracting the world’s best fashion brands and becoming home to fast-growing new companies looking to showcase their product on the world stage. The Forum Shops at Caesars paved the way for Las Vegas to transform itself into a leading force on the fashion scene.


From its spiral escalator to Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant to Antiquities (one of Michael Jackson’s favorite stores) to The Palm restaurant to the world’s biggest H&M to the Atlantis Show, Trevi Fountain, 50,000 gallon fish tank and spectacular art galleries and jewelers, The Forum Shops at Caesars welcomes more than 25 million people per year.  Today, The Forum Shops continues to grow with recent expansions from Salvatore Ferragamo, Stuart Weitzman and Louis Vuitton, as well as new openings from Pal Zileri, Coach Men’s, Sephora and Martin Lawrence Galleries. “We have had a fantastic year,” comments Maureen Crampton, director of marketing for The Forum Shops. “I believe people come to The Forum Shops not only to shop and dine, but to literally be transported to a different place in time.  From the changing hues of the sky-lined ceiling to the overall ambience of the streets of Rome to the daily Atlantis Show, we created a place where people can enjoy the theatrics of the shopping center.”


As part of the anniversary, many of The Forum Shops retail tenants (some dating back to the opening) took part in a special video to share some of their personal memories and stories, this included: Donny Borsack/first family of retail in Las Vegas; Tom Kaplan/Wolfgang Puck-Spago; Haresch Melwani/original Versace/Jeans Couture; Larry Close/The Palm and more.  In addition, Caesars Palace Regional President Gary Selesner spoke about how important the partnership with The Forum Shops is in making Caesars Palace the worldwide destination that it is.  The video can be found at: http://www.vimeo.com/40136145
