Las Vegas: Uber to/from airport, any problems?

Will we have any problems using Uber from Las Vegas airport to Bellagio and return?

Do you already know how any Uber costs compare with regular taxis? I'd be interested in that information or at least how you find out. I'm assuming this would be THE reason you would even consider waiting for an Uber driver in that cyclone of taxis that is LAS.

I was just there and noticed the airport is right next to the hotels, you could practically walk it. It is only about a 3-4 mile trip to that hotel. The taxi fare, even with the airport charge, will only be $20-25. You need cheapest Uber to get lower than that and with surge pricing, they could charge more. I don't know if they service the airport but not sure there is any advantage to them for short trips like that from the airport, if they even go there (someone on Yelp says they won't, just a couple months ago).

I wouldn't worry about it, plenty of taxis.

Not a big deal, but we use Uber exclusively in FLL due to the condition/poor service of taxis in the past few years.

No, you won't have any problems. Personally, regardless of cost I would choose Uber over a Taxi; you get what you pay for, and without question Uber will provide you with a better experience.
