If you're a traveling millionaire, odds are you've stayed at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. If not, what are you waiting for?
According to a survey conducted by wealth research firm New World Wealth, Sin City's Bellagio is the No. 1 hotel in the world among the wealthy.
The South Africa-based firm surveyed more than 800 millionaires.
"The Bellagio is not really a name we expected, but a lot of the wealthy like going there," New World Wealth's head of research Andrew Amoils told CNBC.
Trailing behind the five-star hotel and casino are New York's Plaza Hotel, the Mandarin Oriental in London, the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France and Raffles Hotel Singapore.
Unsurprisingly, every one of the five aforementioned hotels are five-star properties.
Despite boasting high-end accommodations and amenities, the Bellagio is the cheapest of the top five hotels, with guests able to secure a room for just a few hundred dollars per night on average.
Like the Bellagio, the Plaza Hotel in the Big Apple is among the world's most iconic hotels, having hosted some of the most wealthy and famous people in history and starring in multiple films, including "Scent of a Woman" and "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."
Likewise, France's Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has hosted some of the most influential people throughout history, including the Kennedys and former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, according to Business Insider.

Although Amoils said the survey is "completely objective," larger hotels that have been around for quite a bit obviously held an advantage over newer and boutique hotels.
New World Wealth's "Top Destinations for the Super-Rich" study also reveals the top rated trains, airlines and fly fishing rivers among wealthy travelers.
