    Default Bellagio Hotel: The Best in the World

    Hi Traders,

    One of the secrets to trading (and life) success is expecting the best from yourself, and working with the best people in the world.

    It was an honor for me to get permission from the Bellagio Hotel to meet with, and publish this rare photo, of me and renowned President Randy Morton of Bellagio hotel in December 2010:



    Randy was very cordial, he was telling me about their 10th anniversary of being a 5-diamond property; that's an exceptionally difficult feat to accomplish in the hospitality industry; Randy's one of the top hotel executives in the world. I could tell he was proud of his management team and employees for all their hard work, he is a very genuine, capable leader. I've worked with hundreds of executives back in my prior consulting career, I could tell from our conversation that he's one of the world's top executives (his competency and leadership acumen came through instantly).

    Here's a good article about Bellagio and how they've been able to achieve such spectacular success as hoteliers:

    Randy Morton also won the Nevada Hotelier of the Year award in 2008 (congrats):

    I was staying at the Bellagio because I was a featured speaker at the Moneyshow.com Traders' Expo being held in a nearby venue. I always like to stay at the Bellagio when I'm in Vegas, because they have the finest service, best food, most entertaining gaming and top-to-bottom world class service I've seen anywhere.

    I personally like the Bellagio Lakeview Suites best, they're spacious with floor-to-ceiling window views of the famous Bellagio fountains -- it's a very special experience. This last time, I stayed in a "Lakeview Deluxe" room, here's the view, it was fantastic:



    Highly recommended. Bellagio Hotel is my favorite property in the world, I feel safe, like I'm at home, that I can trust the entire staff to deliver a world-class experience. In staying there many times these last few years, they've always overdelivered. One of the best experiences of my life is staying at Bellagio. You'll like it a lot, be sure to stay there as well (tip: get on their email list to get special promos):

    There is no substitute. Book a lakeview room now, it'll be one of your life's top experiences.

    That is a great set of pictures Ken. We stayed there one time and loved it.


    This is a great place. The fountain view side was worth the extra $50 bucks. The floor-to-ceiling window views with the TV tuned to the fountain music station for the shows was a plus.

    Wishing all the best in trading and have a happy holidays.

    hey Larry, thanks - great picture! Happy holidays to you, too. Nice to see there's fellow fans of Bellagio. Tip: the fountain music on the tv is nice to hear the first couple of times, nowadays when I go I like to have favorite top-40 music playing from my laptop, or listen to Sinatra while watching the fountains. Often youtube.com has a lot of music videos from favorite performers, so those are fun to listen to and have playing in the background while watching the fountains from your room.

    At Bellagio, their gelato (italian ice cream) is great at cafe gelato. The nightlub Bank is fun, good sound system. Swimming in the hotel pools during spring/fall is a relaxing experience. Bellagio's buffet is the best I've had in the world (which is saying a lot, I've had lots of buffets at top hotels worldwide).

    Whenever I go, I always buy a coffee at the coffee shop and walk the back of the property (conference areas) and stand out at the patio in the back area, overlooking the pools, that's relaxing. and I always play blackjack there (favorite dealers are Ray, Alex, Mabel). The dealer Ray was telling me stories of 'back in the day' when he'd met Sinatra, Dean Martin and others from long ago, it was great to hear.

    Many, many hotel staff at Bellagio have stayed there from day 1 when it opened, they're very loyal to the hotel -- another good sign of outstanding leadership and teamwork. They've accomplished a lot, delivering world class quality service.

    And of course the magnificent "O" Cirque du Soleil show is a must-see, it's the best performance I've seen in the world.
    Good trading,

    Here I am celebrating the 4th of July week with poker and family time in Las Vegas. At 49 years old, I'm glad I chose to stay fit, active and healthy; it's great to have energy to spend time with family, friends and colleagues:



    Just checked out of Bellagio yesterday; had a great time as usual, here's a few trip pics:





    Here's what the cabanas look like (highly recommended, if you'll be poolside for more than a couple hours):





    Here's the view from my 28th floor room, it was outstanding:





    Nothing in the world compares to Bellagio -- the finest service, world-class amenities, and so much more. I've never been disappointed at Bellagio; they pay meticulous attention to detail and deliver world-class service. I feel safe and happy at Bellagio. Be sure to register to stay at least a few days at Bellagio (w/lakeview room or suite) at http://www.Bellagio.com . Part of being successful, is to surround yourself with winning "anchors" that help reinforce your goals and success in life. Bellagio's my favorite place in the world away from home.

    Thanks to all at the hotel for all you do -- Bellagio is the best.
