We spent 3 nights at the Cosmopolitan mid Nov., booked directly via phone at an AAA rate. We booked a terrace studio and were upgraded to fountain view terrace studio at check in at no addtl charge. We checked in around 5 pm Saturday and waited about 20 mins - no biggie. We loved the large balcony in our room, which had 1 small couch on it. It would be nice if they had higher furniture on the balcony, because the glass has a design that obscures the view of the strip when you are sitting. Still, I highly recommend the fountain view if you can get it, even if you have to pay a little more, as it is very cool to have such a great view of the strip and the Bellagio fountain right from your room. Our friends were staying at the 4 seasons and they were impressed with our view, the Chandelier bar, and the way you have to use your room key to access the elevators. We were on the 27th floor and could still hear the thumping from the Marquee nightclub , but it didn’t keep us awake. The kitchen is weird as others noted. A dishwasher but no dishes or silver wear and no coffeemaker? We were on a budget so we brought our own tea bags and some cheap mugs we could leave behind, and just used the microwave for hot water. The mini bar is pricey and we didn’t use it – we were charged for something but they removed it from our bill with no issue. All the hotel pools were closed for the season which is a bummer because the Boulevard pool looks really cool. We did use the SAHRA spa on our last day ($28 for a day pass) and it was really nice. If you buy the day pass for the spa you also get use of the gym, so that’s good. A day pass for the gym only is like $16. We didn't have a car so booked a shuttle to/from the airport thru the hotel - it was $7 per person each way and really easy. The casino/lobby in the hotel is great- it feels pretty chic and modern compared to some of the others we went into. We didn’t make it to the Marquee nightclub in the hotel but saw the line to get in on Saturday and it looks like it would be a blast. I think you have to pay extra to get into it, too - It is definitely a hot spot. Also the hotel has so many restaurants and shops - we felt a little overwhelmed at first but got the hang of it by the 2nd day. Didn’t eat on property. The staff was very nice and helpful, our room was immaculate and serviced daily, and the location of the hotel (center strip, next to the Bellagio) is fantastic. Our room had slippers and robes which was nice. We called “beck and call” twice and it took forever for them to bring what we requested. As others mentioned, the CVS is short walk if you need to pick up anything. Our room was about $250 per night (Saturday was REALLY expensive) but it was worth it for that view from our terrace. On a side note, we saw O at the Bellagio and it was the most amazing show I’ve ever seen. If you have the chance, go see O- it is worth whatever you pay.
