    Diana,
    The Bellagio is a very good choice. The hotel is very nice and the location is excellent. Room rates are on the high end, but not outrageous. For the quality of the hotel, they don't overcharge.

    The Las Vegas Strip is generally very safe for tourists, as the Las Vegas powers-that-be have a vested interest in making sure it stays that way. Stay in the main area -- no wandering off away from the Strip, in other words -- and it's doubtful you'd encounter any problems at all. As in any tourist destination, there are always the assorted collection of opportunistic pickpockets and purse-snatchers, so make sure to take basic precautions against those.

    I always have doubts about "the $20 trick" (or $50 for you, since you're willing to up the price) in general , but I also think that the worst that can happen if a person tries it is an awkward moment at check in. And, really, if you don't have at least a handful of awkward moments on a Las Vegas trip you're not doing it right. So it certainly could hurt to try slipping the clerk a bill. You may also want to call and speak to a manager a couple of days before arrival and explain that the trip is a Mother's Day gift and see if they can get you confirmed into a fountain-view room.

    "Tacky" in Las Vegas? I'm not sure such a thing is possible.

    I booked a penthouse suite but I am a little afraid they will put us on the side facing the mountains instead of the fountains. I confirmed that not all suites face the fountains and they won't know what I have until I check in - i booked through expedia and the price was cheaper than the hotel website which makes me concerned that I wouldn't be a good candidate for an upgrade. Do you think a $50 trick will work at check in, or is that tacky to do in the Executive Lounge checkin? (First time in vegas and bringing my mom for Mother's Day)

    Try the Luxor and the Excalibur. Both have great deals on room rates at the moment. (And that's about the only reason I'd recommend Excalibur, by the way.)

    I will be staying at the Bellagio but want a cheaper hotel within walking distance for a couple of nights. Can you recommend anything

    Thanks

    If luxury is important to you, the Bellagio has that in spades. The hotel and casino are beautiful and the fountain show outside is one of the "must see" items in Vegas. But if you don't care much about staying in a first-class hotel, there are cheaper options in the area. My opinion is that it's worth splurging for a stay at a place like the Bellagio at least once, though.

    For an answer about Cher tickets, take a look here.

    We are going to Vegas in Nov, is it worth the money to stay at the Bellagio in comparison to some of the other hotels. Do we buy Cher tickets on line or wait till we get there?
