I previously stayed at The Cosmopolitan for a friend's 30th birthday trip in February 2012. As a result, I knew it would be perfect for another friend's Bachelorette Party in July 2012. It was a nice surprise that I was upgraded upon check-in to a Terrace Studio (thank you!). We ate at the Blue Ribbon sushi bar on Saturday, had drinks at the Chandelier Bar, and laid by the pool on Saturday. Blue Ribbon was ok, but we did have a great waiter. As far as sushi goes, I cannot imagine there is affordable, excellent sushi on the Strip. We got to the Bamboo Pool around 10:45 on Saturday and were able to snag four chairs together (far away from the pool, but directly in front of a bar) and then just laid out towels on the grass behind our chairs. Only annoying thing was that you need to bring or buy for $10 a cord so that you can play your iPod in the room. However, there are plenty of music channels available on the television. You really cannot beat the location and vibe of The Cosmopolitan. I would not hesitate to return and have always gotten good deals (either AAA on the Marriott website or a Jet Blue vacation package).
