With video art installation pieces and a who’s who of culinary and nightlife legends, The Cosmopolitan aims to be the hippest resort on the Strip. The overall feel of the place is Miami Vice meets James Bond meets Paris Hilton (this is Vegas, after all). The futuristic lobby sets the tone, with iPad check-in and columns that double as morphing digital art pieces. Nouveau baroque chandeliers and marble floors keep things grounded in high-end Vegas, and the architecture (the hotel occupies two 52-story glass towers) optimizes views of the Bellagio fountains, the Eiffel Tower replica and the Strip’s other over-the-top sights. The 2,995 condo-style units channel Hollywood Regency by way of Jonathan Adler—think baby blue alligator print side tables, custom leather headboards, and Pop Art wallpaper. Many have sprawling terraces, Japanese soaking tubs, and kitchenettes with microwaves and Subzero minibars. At the center of the casino floor is a three-story bar draped in two million crystals that form a massive glittering chandelier. It’s part of the complex’s 300,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space, which includes 13 restaurants (from “it” chefs like Jose Andres) and Vegas outposts of hip New York spots like Blue Ribbon Sushi and legendary nightclub Marquee (the Vegas version thumps both day and night and includes art installations on giant LED screens). Inspired by desert landscapes, the Sahra Spa has 30 treatment rooms and a hammam, with Morrocan-, Turkish-, and Malaysian-inspired treatments. Guests can choose between the surf lodge vibe of the Boulevard Pool, the more serene Bamboo Pool, and the raging Marquee Dayclub Pool.
In the Area
The hotel has some of the more edgy shopping in Vegas with CRSVR (which specializes in limited edition sneakers), cult denim shop DNA2050 and collectible Japanese purveyor Kid Robot. You’re also right near the Daniel Libeskind-designed Crystals shopping district, where Chihuly glass sculptures and carpets made from flowers complement designer baubles by the likes of Balenciaga, Gucci and Lanvin. Across the street from the Cosmopolitan is one of the largest gay dance clubs in the U.S., Krave, which offers cutting-edge DJs, dance contests and go-go dancers on a Broadway-size stage. For a little retro fun, take the short taxi ride to the Pinball Hall of Fame, the world’s largest collection of machines, or head to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s glittering signs. Have a need for speed? Suit up and put the pedal to the metal at the Richard Petty Driving Experience, where you can drive yourself or ride along with an expert.
How to Get There
Stayed in the Cosmo for 8 nights in June, fabulous hotel, bed very comfortable fabulous view of the fountains, my only criticism would be that there is not much shade at the pool. The pool was really busy at the weekend. Staff were all very courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel great location on the strip.
I go to Las Vegas often for business, whether for industry conventions or simply some local meetings. I have found that the service and rooms are always outstanding at the Cosmo. I also like that fact that you can get a room in the tower that is immediately across from the check-in counter - no lugging your baggage through a myriad of craps tables and slot machines to find your elevators in the back of the casino.
Also, the restaurant options on the 2nd and 3rd floors are out of this world.
Visited this hotel over memorial weekend, as a group of 5 couples, celebrating my husbands 40th. We were upgraded to a fountain view room on the 58th floor which was a nice touch - the view was amazing. Rooms were spacious, luxurious and clean. Bathroom was modern, with double sinks, lovely powerful shower and separate wc. Although I thought the frosted glass wall from shower to the bedroom was little strange. The hotel itself had a great, lively atmosphere. Seemed very classy n chic compared to other slightly older hotels on the strip. We ate in STK one night which was great experience, food and drinks were amazing, service top notch - n music was fab, like eating your meal in a nightclub. Little disappointed with our cabana at the boulevard pool, was like a wind tunnel n food n drinks blew away. Service was very slow. We spent most of the day in the jacuzzi and not our cabana cos so breezy. There were other cabanas free that were much more sheltered and I would of thought they would have offered to move us. But no big deal, we still enjoyed our day there. Lastly, I’ve got to mention the Wicked Spoon buffet, did breakfast there one day and it was so good! Endless choice, everything I tasted was divine and so indulgent. I would definitely return to this hotel, more so than Ceasers, Bellagio, MGM or Aria, where we have previously stayed.
My fiance' and I just checked out of this hotel this past week. The property is absolutely beautiful, the staff was amazing we were amazed at the upgrade with the most AMAZING VIEW we received for our anniversary. Shannon was absolutely amazing and she even got us a cool gift for our anniversary. We will be back and this will be the only hotel we will stay at while in Vegas. The location is perfect, there is not one thing negative I can say about the experience I had while in Vegas. Way to GO!!! 5 stars and beyond for customer service. Staff, location and the view!
Great location, large comfortable rooms, good restaurants, helpful staff.
The beds are very comfortable, bathrooms nice and large, excellent bathroom amenities , a well stocked mini bar.
Lovely for a vacation in the city of lights. Would definitely recommend.
