Four Seasons, Venetian, or Bellagio?

Has anyone who has stayed at these hotels make comments or recommendations? I have stayed at the Bellagio and the Venetian but not the Four Seasons and we are going back. Just looking for some input on which one to stay at.
THANKS!

Just to be clear, these are all in Las Vegas and we are determining which hotel to book!
THANKS AGAIN!

If you poke into the archives you'll find oodles of threads about these three.
Four Seasons' best attributes are best service in LV and quietest hotel. Also, the upkeep on the rooms is better than at the casino hotels.
I find the rooms at the FS in LV a cut below the quality of the FS rooms in most other cities. And relative to the rates you can get at other nice hotels in LV I think the FS is a poor value.
Its location is not good.
Bellagio has been my favorite hotel in LV since its opening, but I'm the first to admit that its best days are behind it. MGM's ownership has hurt and the hotel isn't being held to the same standards as before. The sheet quality, cleanliness and upkeep of wear and tear is below par compared with 5 years ago.

What a shame about the Bellagio going downhill. Travelis, would you still recommend it over the FS or Venetian. I too am trying to decide between these three hotels.

Venetian is the best to stay at by far. Very good service, restaurants rivaled by others but not surpassed, great location. It is the premier hotel in Vegas until the Wynn resort opens. Agreeing with Trav about both FS(not really up to par with FS elsewhere) and Bellagio(still big and beautiful, but slightly fading).

I realize that which hotel people like better is a matter of opinion, but I think you'd have a big argument with the major restaurant critics saying that the restaurants at Bellagio rival but don't surpass the ones at Venetian.

This is all such a personal choice. I have stayed at both the Venetian and Bellagio and I would take Bellagio hands down...it is my favorite in Las Vegas. As far as location goes Bellagio has Venetian beat as far as I am concerned that corner of Bellagio, Caesers, Flamingo, Paris is the best corner in Vegas! The restaurants at both places are great. The pool at Bellagio is so much better then the Venetian, and the players club is so much better at Bellagio then the Venetian.

Four Seasons is lovely, as most of their hotels are. You can enter through Mandalay Bay and use their casino (FS has no casino) and everything else Mandalay Bay has to offer, such as the pool, spa, etc. Mandalay Bay-ers don't have the same option with the FS ameneties.) Also, you are literally at the end of the strip. Even with the trams between hotels and the monorail (which, wasn't working at all when we were there for a week last month, and I hear hasn't been working well 80% of the time) it is a long walk. I love walking on vacations, but after your third trip up and back, its a little irritating, and unnecessarily expensive to take a cab.

Bellagio is arguably the most beautiful hotel in Las Vegas. The restaurants are fabuous, and the service is impeccable. I have never had a bad experience there. The location is pretty central on the strip, and is very convenient.

Having said all that, the Venetian is my favorite. It is not as elegant as the Bellagio, but it is exceptionally clean, staff are very friendly (some even genuinely so) and there is a broader choice of restaurants. When we are there, it feels great to come back at the end of a long day/evening and walk through the hotel up to our room.

Basically, you can't go wrong with any of these three. Have a great trip!
