We stayed at the Cosmopolitan for 4 nights this week and the experience was astounding. The hotel is new and shows it. The room was superb - huge with a beautiful balcony. Bed was very comfortable, the bathroom gigantic and the living room area a plus. Free internet. The Cosmo is quite different from the other huge hotels on the strip - the concept is "vertical," in other words, where the other sprawling resorts have the casino, restaurants and shops all on a single floor, the Cosmo has them on three. No problem there! The hotel is right next to the Bellagio so it is situated right in the middle of the action. The staff was amazing, truly. The free drinks while gambling were excellent (you could get anything you wanted and they were strong!). Our only complaint was the check in - the room was not ready at 3 p.m. Seems as if the Memorial Day weekend crowd was huge so this part was slow. Other than that we highly recommend the Cosmopolitan to anyone who wants to experience an outstanding stay. Would stay there again in a heart beat! We saw Gladys Knight at the Tropicana (WOW!) and also Cirque de Soleil's "O" at the Bellagio (breathtaking). Red Rock Canyon as well (this is a must for anyone going to Las Vegas - just rent a car for the day at the airport - $39). Buffets at MGM (super) and Aria (so-so). Dinner at Circo (Bellagio) - wonderful. Cafe Nikki at the Tropicana (very fine). The lions at MGM is a must see. First time in Vegas - will be going back!
