The Cosmopolitan Hotel – Las Vegas, USA

After its launch in Dec 2010, The Cosmopolitan has firmly placed itself as one of Vegas permanent elite.

I have been a pretty proactive visitor of Vegas and have tried out quite a few of the hotels, though I think I have landed my permanent residence in this one.

While its older counterparts would teach this youngster a thing or two about opulence and traditional architecture and artwork, this little hipster is leagues ahead with its technology, its design and its catering to the younger crowd. Even part of its casino is more like a bar with dancers, house music and strobe lights. (This is also the part of the casino that I found the most brutal, gambling wise)

In 2013, the hotel was rated “The Best Hotel in the World” by Gogobot. In 2015, the resort was named to the Condé Nast Traveller Gold List as one of the “Top Hotels in the World”

Education Corner:  The hotel has 2,995 hotel rooms, (many of which feature their own private terrace); a 110,000 sq ft Casino; a 300,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant space; a 40,000 sq ft spa and fitness facility; a 1,800 seat theater, oh and 3 different types of pool for whatever you’re in the mood for (relaxing, day club, nightclub)

As with every hotel in Vegas, they have their own cluster of high-end, celebrity and michelin star restaurants. The Cosmo has Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s Blue Ribbon, Costas Spiliadis’ Estiatorio Milos, Scott Conant’s Scarpetta (A favourite of mine in New York), and David Myers’ Comme Ça. Also present is “é by José Andrés”, and one based on his tapas restaurant, Jaleo. Another restaurant, China Poblano, is a new concept combining Mexican and Chinese cuisine.
Additional restaurants include: D.O.C.G. a restaurant and wine bar by Scott Conant; Holstein’s, a specialty burger restaurant. Also, STK, a steakhouse by Todd Mark Miller which you will also find in London and LA.

The rooms are modern with nice little touches such as Fornasetti wallpaper and interesting artwork. The wraparound suite is spacious and high calibre without being gaudy or ostentatious. The bungalow suites are truly luxurious with a high quality finish and enough space to have the entire cast of Cirque Du Soleil’s “O” over for drinks.

The question is, what are you looking for? While the Bellagio, the Venetian and of course the Wynn have well surpassed this youngster in classic and traditional luxury, the Cosmopolitan is a 24hour celebration. Frankly, I always expect to sleep on the flight home, as Vegas will always have my full attention.
