As you know from our previous Bellagio post, We consider the Bellagio our Vegas home and we have had some problems when we tried to stay other places. So I was a bit nervous to try the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas on our recent weekend trip. We chose the Cosmo for two reasons…it is the hippest spot (right now) on the strip and the location is amazing. Well…I have to say we have a new Vegas home! The place was fantastic and we had a great time.
To start, check in was quick and our room was ready early. The Terrace Suite was our own Vegas condo with a full kitchen (yes, stove, full fridge, microwave), living room, bedroom and a washer/dryer. It also had views of the Bellagio Fountains. See the video here:
The only minor issues were the high tech room features which included lighting and temp control through our tv. This is great in theory but they are still working the bugs out. Our room was not hot by any means but we could not get it as cold as we like. The remote for the tv worked intermittently. I stress these are minor issues that will be worked out.
We spent most of the trip exploring the onsite activities and restaurants (restaurant report to follow in separate post). Walking through the halls is an adventure in itself with interesting and sometime interactive art around every corner.
While we rarely visit pools in Vegas, we could not pass on the Boulevard Pool. This adult playground overlooks the strip and has free foosball, ping-pong and pool tables scattered throughout the complex. The pool itself has a large ‘shallow’ area that enables you to lounge in the water with your drink. The hottest club in Vegas is the Marquee Day/Night Club at Cosmo that also has a pool. However, the ridiculously long lines (2-3 hours starting at 10:00 am) kept us from visiting it.
Overall, we loved this resort and cannot wait to return. It is safe to say that the Cosmo is our new goto Vegas spot.
