The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Review
The Cosmopolitan is truly different Las Vegas resort experience—a blend of arty sophistication and comfortable elegance. Everything about accommodations starts with the open-air private terraces. The vast majority the hotel's 2,995 rooms and suites boast them, and they're the only standard outdoor balconies on the Strip (north-facing terraces are the best, as they look out on the Fountains at Bellagio next door). The other distinguishing characteristic in most Cosmo rooms is the kitchenette; a mini-fridge and microwave are available for guest use. Rooms also feature plush and comfortable couches, coffee-table art books and a spacious work desk. Bathrooms are enormous, and most feature a soaking tub, stand-alone shower, and ample counter space. All rooms boast state-of-the-art technology that allows guests to pre-set ambiences including lighting, music, and temperature, and book dining and spa reservations through the TV.
The nightlife: The main attractions are Marquee nightclub and The Chandelier—a three-story bar that exists in a giant light fixture—and the future never has looked as bright.
The creativity: Consider the vending machine with wood-block paintings from local artists and the limited-edition sneakers at CRSVR Sneaker Boutique.
The Club: Opened in early 2012, the Talon Club is more than just a high-limit gaming salon; it's a speakeasy and a place to unwind from the hubbub of the casino floor.
The pool deck: Three different pools on the mezzanine offer three different daytime experiences; there's also an outdoor living room that is a great spot to watch a big game.
A slate of restaurants that includes offerings from Scott Conant (Scarpetta, D.O.C.G.), Jose Andreas (Jaleo, China Poblano), and Costas Spilidas (Estiatorio Milos) will excite even the most jaded diner. Of course there's also a no-name pizzeria that serves up New York-style 'za by the slice.
The on-site spa, Sahra, offers dozens of unique skin and body treatments, and boasts one of the only open-to-the-public hammams in town.
Violet Hour Salon, the on-site beauty parlor, specializes in hair, nails and make-up.
World-class shopping includes a number of one-of-a-kind boutiques, including Stitched (men's clothes), Retrospecs & Co. (eyewear), and Kid Robot (toys).
Future Shock on the Strip
Design innovation is at the center of the Cosmopolitan, the sleekest new hotel on the Vegas Strip. Video screen-bedecked pillars greet guests with digital artwork as they check in via iPad at red lacquered registration desks. On the casino floor, guests can escape the crowds by slipping into a "casino cabana," small, lounge-style rooms that offer a VIP gambling experience without the VIP expense. Then there's The Chandelier, a three-story bar bedazzled with enough crystals to make patrons feel like they're sitting inside a Swarovski showroom. Above all this, in the property's nearly 3,000 rooms, the design aesthetic continues; every suite boasts a collection of art books and a jar of colored pencils. Who said gambling getaways can't inspire?
