Bellagio President & COO Randy Morton accepted the award on behalf of the resort’s more than 8,000 employees during the inaugural Gold List 2012 event held at Hyde Bellagio.

“We are deeply honored to receive this award from one of the world’s preeminent publications in luxury travel,” said Morton. “This recognition is a testament to Bellagio’s incredible employees who strive to create exceptional experiences for every guest that walks through our doors.”

The Navigator Award is granted to an individual, on behalf of a travel organization or destination, who, in the opinion of Condé Nast Traveler’s publisher, possesses an extraordinary legacy and consistently upholds the highest standards of excellence in hospitality. The recipient demonstrates an industry-leading commitment to quality and ranks among the world’s greatest hosts for the magazine’s readership.

Kremins said, “We are thrilled to bestow the second-ever Navigator Award upon Bellagio. Since opening in late 1998, it has been one of our readers’ perennial favorites, and has truly set a Gold Standard for excellence in hospitality.”

Bellagio has received several editorial honors from Condé Nast Traveler including the prized Gold List (World’s Best Hotels annually 2000 – 2012); The Reader’s Choice Poll (annually 2000 – 2011); and the all-new Platinum Circle (recognizing more than five consecutive years of Gold List status).
