“Good hotel with an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

I stayed at the Cosmopolitan for 2 nights in a city room with two beds but no terrace and had a good stay. The room and bathroom are a decent size with high quality furnishings but no bath in the bathroom. I would also note in the City room that see through glass separates the shower from the bedroom and the privacy blind can be controlled from the bedroom.

As the hotel is on such a small footprint it has a strange layout for Las Vegas with the public areas split over 3 levels (but this did not seem to cause any problems). The casino was also right on the strip and offered very good drink service (though the slot machines were very tight).

The Cosmopolitan lacks the impact of the beautiful Bellagio next door but I thought it had more character that the generic Aria.

The pool areas are very nice but way too small for a hotel of this size (would not stay here in the summer).

I found the service to be very good and one of the receptionists printed my boarding pass and bought it up to my room.

I liked the Cosmopolitan but with so many options in Las Vegas, I don't know if I will go back. They also didn't charge a resort fee which is a real bonus in Las vegas at the moment.

Background

We're in our 30's. We've done an annual trip to Vegas for each of the past 6 years. Past hotels we've stayed at: The Hotel, Wynn, Caesars and Bellagio.

For our stay we upgraded to a corner suite on the 60 something floor (which is really like the 40 something floor but whatever)

The Good

The balcony is really cool. Really enjoyed having a cocktail while observing the sounds and sites of Vegas. Really hope future hotels (if there are any) include balconies.

Corner suite is nice. Lots of room, two huge bathrooms, large living area. Really nice. Probably best we've had in LV.

Service was solid. Ordered room service for breakfast each day and it was on time and hot. Check in was pretty prompt and friendly. Pool area was understaffed which is mind boggling to me. If you're charging $15 a drink, you'd think you'd make sure you have enough staff so that no one has to wait.

Design is also impressive - it has a NY boutique feel even though it's massive.

The Bad

The pools are weak. The Boulevard Pool is a rip off. To sit by the pool you basically have to pay $300 for a day bed (or more for a cabana). I suspect because of this, the Bamboo pool fills up quickly and continually until it starts to resemble Rehab at Hard Rock (google it if you don't know what I mean). Didn't try the Day Club pool as I have no interest in having dance music blast at me at 1:00 pm (or 1:00 am for that matter). Seriously though, the music coming out of the Day Club was loud on our 60th (or 40th) floor balcony. I can't imagine what it would be like up close.

Restaurant selection was average. Jaleo was quite good (but packed), DOCG was meh and nothing else really excited me.

Sportsbook is modern but really small. I was betting horses and a couple of big tracks weren't even on the television bank. Pretty amateur. Can't imagine what they'll do when (or if) the NFL season starts. Plus they were insisting on $50 minimum bets (even for horse racing) before they'd give you a drink.

The Trashy

I cannot overstate how many women (well really girls) were marching around the place in dresses that would make Dad cry. For a man of my age with my lovely girlfriend it really was a bit awkward (albeit someone amusing). We ran into a few people our age or older who clearly were uncomfortable with the whole scene.

Verdict

Glad we tried it and really like the balconies. But I don't think we'll be back soon. Ultimately, it's just not aimed for people like us. But if you're single and under 30 and you can afford it, it may just be a modern day Disneyland.

Stayed in a terrace room for one night back in april 2011. I have to say, this is one of my favorite hotels in vegas.

First off, can't beat the location. Right in the middle of the strip. The room itself was very large and comfortable. It had plenty of room to spread out. My favorite feature was the terrace, with a view of the bellagio fountains. It was nice to be able to get some fresh air, and enjoy the view. My only wish would be if there could be more seating - there is only a lounger, which wasn't quite comfortable for two people.

The technology of the room took some getting used to. You can control the lighting, temperature, and any other function of your room through your tv. I could only turn off the lamps in the room through the tv. It was also nice that the hotel had FREE wifi, which a lot of the other hotels do not provide

I tried the Wicked Spoon buffet at the cosmopolitan, and they had good food and great service. I also had Holsteins - definitely should get one of their amazing shakes. Another great place for a quick bite is Pink's hot dogs, across the pedestrian bridge at planet hollywood

Room Tip: try to stay during a weekday

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!

The Cosmo has been reviewed ad nauseum so I will make this one brief.
This hotel has a feminine flair, lots of women everywhere, hip atmosphere, fun day club, popular night club (long lines).
Great location, good restaurants, good spa, beautiful rooms (I had a suite, could hear noise from clubs and street well into the wee wee hours).
Not recommended for families with children, couples, older people.
Not recommended for bargain hunting, everything at the hotel is on the expensive side (in room breakfast for two runs $100)
The service is adequate but not spectacular, this is not a white glove luxury property.
Perfect Vegas spot if you are single, young, good looking and carry some cash.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony suites over the Bellagio fountain

I have been to Vegas several times and have been to three different hotels. MGM, The Venetian and The Cosmopolitan. I will list The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

The Good
The hotel is beautiful once you arrive inside you will be awestruck by the amount art in the building. Front desk check in was prompt and I did not have to wait longer than 10 minutes. The restaurants are good. I didn't try The Henry or Holsteins restaurant because the menu was not varied and not to my likes it just has hamburgers and fries. I ate at STK, Estario Milos, The Wicked Spoon Buffet, and China Poblano. The restaurants except The Henry and Holsteins are varied and good. When a problem was encountered with housekeeping or service it was fixed immediately. They are still in their learning stages and need some feedback and it would help if they did a survey from their guests. Everyone was polite and congenial. The room layout is useful, and light and airy. Some other people have commented on the decor being tacky but to me this is typical of new boutique hotels. The technology features of the room, IPod hookup, and TV are great. The bars are spectacular with the views of the Chandelier. It has three levels in the center of the hotel. The Casino was small but you had varied table games and the dealers were the friendliest I have seen while being in Vegas. I had a great time while being there. Room service was great and on time, but more expensive than other hotels on Vegas.

The Bad,

Bell Service for our bags with check in was slow, I think this is because they are still trying to figure how to schedule enough people to the amount of guests. Housekeepers
are friendly, but the management needs to give a checklist to them. I had a couple of issues with housekeeping but all were fixed by calling them. One day I had a sign which I put please clean room at 2pm and the room was never cleaned. I called them at 5pm and they did send someone up. The other problem was not enough washcloths, my call was quickly responded. The other problem was with my identity membership mix up. I signed up online before check in and I was told that I could use my room card for the membership, but when I went to the bar I was told I needed an additional card to use. Once again a call fixed the problem. When opening the fridge, you will get charged for the minibar due to items moving. Once again the charge was immediately credited to my account. The salon is short staffed and when I wanted to make a appointment I could not be accommodated but Anthony at the salon made arrangements for another Salon next door to the hotel. Thanks Anthony !.

The Ugly,

Our room was in the East tower and facing the Marquee Pool it was very beautiful but noisy due to being in close proximity to the club. This didn't bother me or my guests as I am a sound sleeper and noise doesn't bother me. The other problem was I made reservations for a Cabana at the Bamboo Pool a day prior and when I got to the pool the next day the reservation was not listed plus I was quoted another price. This was fixed when I talked to the manager. One restaurant I called to change the time of the reservation and when I arrived there they never acknowledged that this was done, but they made a attempt to accommodate large table of 6.

To fix the problems they need more written material in the room for prices of Cabanas usage of ipod hookups and room features. They also need more staff for housekeeping and bell service This can be easily overlooked as the hotel is in its beginning stages. I am sure that on my next visit in November That this will be fixed. I will let you know

Room Tip: If you are a day person get room in the West Tower

Very large, modern hotel with hip decor and large suites. The nightclub scene and casino were certainly catering to the very young (20s and early 30s) hip set. We stayed in a large suite with a seperate bedroom, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and even a washer and dryer! The ammenities were excellent and housekeeping was average. The Wicked Spoon buffet restaurant was excellent! Our suite overlooked the Bellagio fountains in the West tower, which was ideal as it was also very quiet on that sie of the hotel. Pool areas small and sparce compared to other competing hotels. Spa was very nice and upscale though a bit pricey even for the market.
