When the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas first opened on December 15, 2010, Ashley and I knew it was time to upgrade our hotel choices after graduating from college.
The Cosmopolitan is a gorgeous hotel with over 2,995 rooms, many of which offer their own private terrace. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas consists of two highrise towers, the Cosmopolitan Spa, Casinos, retail and restaurant spaces, a 3,200-seat theater and one of the world’s most popular nightclubs in the United States.
Here’s our thoughts on The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas:
The Cosmopolitan is a large resort that has everything you can ever ask for inside. The Cosmopolitan offers many retail shops and restaurants to appeal to any demographic as well as pools for families and an ice skating rink in the winter. Its high class status appeals to the millenial generation with its vibrant nightclub atmosphere as well as the baby boomer generation with its upscale spa facilities.
The rooms in The Cosmopolitan are immaculate. Whether you choose to stay in the Terrace Studio room, Lanai Suite, West End Penthouse or even the more basic city room, each room has a welcoming upscale atmosphere with plush comfy beds.
All of the televisions are mounted with its unique channel selection, including that of YouTube, Netflix and Hulu. Unfortunately the hotel didn’t have their own logins for each platform so I had to enter in my own account login for each one of the platforms.
In addition to the great entertainment in our room, our room had a fountain view of the world-renowned Bellagio hotel as well as Paris’ beautiful replica of the Eiffel tower.
The bathrooms at the Cosmopolitan were exquisite. Being a 6’4″ male, I tend to judge a hotel room based upon their shower height as well as ease of use to get in and out of it. Fortunately, The Cosmopolitan showers did not disappoint. Upon entering the shower, I noticed that there were shutters on the outside which would allow us to look out at the strip during our shower.
The bathroom was stocked full of C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries’ skincare products which was an unknown brand to us during our stay, but loved the feeling of the products on our skin.
Everyone, from the bellman to the concierge made us feel upscale and special. Being that the hotel is in Las Vegas, gambling is a big part of the scene at The Cosmopolitan. Luckily, the smell of the smoke wasn’t too overbearing for us.
The Cosmopolitan offers 3 pools during the summer, but only 1 pool during the winter months. When we came in November, the weather was around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but the Boulevard Pool was shut down because on November 21st they were turning it into The Ice Rink which would feature 4,200 square feet of real ice. Also we found out that Marquee Dayclub was closed down and only open from April to October every year.
The service was exceptional during our stay. Even though the room wasn’t ready when we first got to the Cosmopolitan, the front desk service gave us a blank room and asked for our cell phone number. While we are usually hesitant to give anyone our cell phone numbers, we gladly obliged when they said they would text us with our room number and would automatically activate the keys they gave us. This was a great idea and we wish more hotels would start implementing this into their hotels. The only problem with this is that we weren’t able to keep them accountable to the 3pm time for check-in they told us. Instead it was 3:45 when we finally went to the room and asked where is our check-in. We love the idea, we just wish the Cosmopolitan was more timely in following through with their check-ins.
What We Loved
We loved the hotel, its restaurants and the feeling we got when we were in our rooms and at the hotel. The Cosmopolitan was in a great location. We were close to the major hotels in Las Vegas and was even across the street from a Walgreens which helped us keep the cost down on liquor and food. Compared to other hotels on the strip, we felt like this was one of our favorite hotels in Las Vegas.
