The Bellagio is owned by MGM Mirage and was built on the site of the Dunes hotel and casino. It was inspired by the Lake Como resort of Bellagio and cost $1.6 billion to build. The main feature of this ultra luxury rated hotel is a 9 acre artificial lake between its buildings and the Strip. The Fountains of Bellagio are serviced by a fresh water well that was made many years ago to irrigate a golf course that used to occupy the site. There is a network of pipes with more than 1200 nozzles and 4500 lights which are used to produce brilliant choreographed music shows.The Fountains themselves cost about $75 million and were created by WET. Three types of nozzles are used, Oarsman, Shooters, Super Shooters and Extreme Shooters- the latter blasts water 500 feet in the air. The hotel opened October 15th 1998, has 3,933 rooms and employs about 10,000 people. Other features of the hotel include 2,000 hand blown Italian glass flowers by Dale Chihuly called "Fiori di Como" on the lobby ceiling, a Conservatory and Botannical Garden which displays change seasonally and a Fine Art Gallery.

Paris Las Vegas is owned and operated by Harrah's Entertainment. The theme is Paris, with a scale model of the Eiffel Tower (540 foot tall), a neon sign in the shape of the Montgolfier Balloon, a scale replica of the Arc de Triomphe andf a replica of La Fontaine des Mers. The front of the building is in the style of the Louvre and the Paris Opera House. Work started on April 17th 1997 and opened September 1st 1999, costing $785 million. Paris Las Vegas has 2,915 rooms and covers 24 acres. It is linked to its sister property Bally's Las Vegas, via Le Boulevard, a French-style shopping district. Originally, the Eiffel Tower copy was intended to be a full scale replica but this was not possible due to the close proximity of McCarran International Airport. You can take elevators to the top of the tower, which is nearly fifty storeys above the ground. As Paris Las Vegas is located on the heart of the Strip you have great views from the observation deck which stands at 460 feet. In particular, the night time views of the city and the Bellagio Fountains are brilliant.
