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
I’m late posting this but I couldn’t go another day without sharing how amazing the Cosmopolitan was for us in Vegas!! First off as soon as we walked in we were greeted by immaculately dressed gentleman that asked if we were Marrriott Platinum members and when we said yes we were swept into a fancy members only lounge to check in. No waiting in a general line. The lounge offered complimentary drinks, tea, coffee, etc. The royal treatment just kept coming. Our room was absolutely gorgeous. Sweeping views, massive flat screen TV, fluffy towels, first class amenities and the list goes on. The beds were too die for and like sleeping in clouds. the shower was massive and like a Greek sauna. The chandeliers and just overall glitz and glamorous atmosphere of this hotel was amazing. It’s packed with restaurants and bars and entertainment... it’s like it’s own little world that sucks you in! I even loved the ultra modern and cool light switches. One button lights your room. The service was outstanding and every wish was catered too. Even in the casino the dealers were so friendly and taught us so much about to play the games. My mom loved the hundreds of slot machines to choose from. I truly can not think of one negative thing to say. It was definitely a wonderful experience !!! Follow me on instagram sweet_maloy. Bottom line - stay here!
We had a one bedroom fountain view suite - was stunning- more like an apartment than a hotel room - we were 2 friends staying, so 2 bathrooms was brilliant- all of the hotel staff we encountered couldn't have been more helpful- we had $100 credit which could only be spent in The Wicked Spoon buffet restaurant- but was great choice of food there and very good value so we would have visited it more than once anyway - hotel is right in the middle of the Strip - fabulous location- we walked up to the Mandalay Bay one way and down to the Fashion Mall ( just past the Venetian Hotel ) the other way - would recommend the fountain view - is worth the extra money - balcony was large with a comfortable sofa and chair - Cosmopolitan would be my choice for any future trips now
"Wow" is the only word to describe the Cosmopolitan Hotel Vegas.
Loved everything about this place from the check in staff, the room size, pool and all amenities. (The parking fee is included in the resort fee is a bonus).
Had a room in the Chelsea tower on the 38th Floor with an amazing view of the strip and Bellagio fountain.
The location is also magic with huge range of eateries close by and easy access in and out of the parking garage to go out and explore by car.
The only one problem though is that the Cosmopolitan has set the bar so high that we are going to struggle to find other hotels to match this one and future accomodation travels will disappoint.
Thank you Vegas
What a wonderful hotel. It all started with Juan in the autograph lounge on check in. He made us feel at home and really took care of us. Truly one of the best employees they have. Hotel is now our favorite in Vegas!
I spent 5 nights here with my husband. The room was lovely, the hotel is clean and modern and all the staff were helpful. We knew we had to pay the resort fee $45 a night so I presumed this covered the facilities. Unfortunately we went to the spa one day and were told we needed a day pass $45pp. I only wanted to use the sauna and steam room so didn't feel it was worth it. Breakfast at the wicked spoon was lovely but over priced- $28-36 pp plus a tip.
