Modern luxury in Las Vegas

2,636 Rooms / 323 Suites

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas just may be the Strip’s “it” place. Stylish locals, foodies, and famous faces (don’t be surprised to see celebrities roaming the Vegas hot spot) are all drawn to The Cosmopolitan’s modern, luxurious vibe that’s evident from the moment you enter the smoked glass doors, where you’ll see curated digital artwork on the video panels of the illuminated floor-to-ceiling pillars.

If you can peel your eyes away from the scene around you, there’s much more to explore — a casino, one-of-a-kind shops, popular bars, restaurants from celebrity chefs and a sizzling pool scene, which converts into a winter wonderland when the weather gets more brisk with an ice rink, fire pits, s’mores and even falling snow. 

The Design

Done by American architect and designer David Rockwell, The Cosmopolitan has a distinct urban feel and artistic bent. Rockwell’s visual wonders lurk everywhere, including mosaic swirls that guide you to the casino and the stunning sandstone walls that reach sky-high in the spa. Visit The Chandelier, a bar that is draped with 21 miles of strung crystal beads to dazzling effect.

The Rooms

The Las Vegas hotel offers 2,995 modern residential-style living spaces rooms, including 177 Terrace Suites and 247 Wrap-Around Terrace Suites, where you can order a bottle of vino and watch the pink-purple Nevada sunset. You also can request a full kitchen outfitted with a Sub-Zero refrigerator or wine chiller, microwave and stove along with a separate bedroom and living room.

The City Room, at 460 square feet, includes two queen-size beds done in deep navy and white, and a large, luxurious bathroom with marble floors. The Terrace One Bedroom gives you a sweeping private terrace and decadent bathroom featuring marble tiles and a Japanese soaking tub. A two-bedroom city suite, perfect for a bigger party, has Strip views and bubbler tubs for soaking. (It also offers a king-size bed in the master and two queens in the second room to fit the needs of families or bridal parties). For those who like a view, ask for accommodations facing the Fountains of the Bellagio or the tranquil Bamboo Pool. All rooms allow pets.

The Amenities

If you are in Vegas to gamble, you’ll want to make a beeline for The Cosmopolitan’s loud, bustling, 100,000-square-foot casino floor, which is packed almost 24-7. Choose from table games, slots and high-limit stake rooms. 

Once you’ve had enough at the tables, the other main social scene is the luxury hotel’s three pools, each of which is landscaped to perfection with explosions of seasonal flowers. Pools have private cabanas decked out with their own infinity pools, cafés, bars and even gambling along with Strip views. The energetic Boulevard Pool overlooks the heart of the Strip, giving you panoramas in all directions. Bamboo Pool offers a relaxing retreat from the Las Vegas excitement, and Marquee Dayclub Pool is an exclusive adult oasis during the day and an extension of Marquee Nightclub in the evening.

The Cosmopolitan also provides a large, modern 24-hour fitness center complete with air-conditioned treadmills and Pilates equipment. There is also an extensive fitness shop in case you forgot your gym gear, plus an array of upscale products next door at Sahra Spa & Hammam.

The world-class Sahra Spa & Hammam offers everything from a youth-inducing oxygen facial to a full-body exfoliation on a warmed marble slab. There are 30 blissful treatment rooms and Turkish baths. There’s even a VIP spa treatment suite for those who want to be pampered but not seen or couples seeking privacy.

After your treatment, head over to The Cosmopolitan’s eclectic group of shops, including Jason of Beverly Hills for jewelry, Stitched for tailored suits and Skins 62 Cosmetics. Pick up a unique souvenir at CRSVR Sneaker Boutique, which specializes in limited-edition footwear.

The Bars

When you want another way to unwind, follow the crowds to The Cosmopolitan's bars. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s The Chandelier (named for the eye-catching jewels that surround the space) has three levels offering up different experiences — the up-tempo bottom floor, the upscale cocktail bar in the middle and the top lounge with a view of everything below. Vesper Bar reflects the decadence of Las Vegas quite literally — mirrored tiles circle the ornate, wooden liquor cabinet. Bond has a nightclub feel, with window boxes that open to the Strip featuring musicians, art installations and go-go dancers. On the casino floor, the high-energy Queue Bar gives you a convenient spot to enjoy original takes on cocktails. Watch out for CliQue, a cocktail lounge with drinks mixed tableside that will debut in winter 2015.

The Restaurants

Top-name chefs make The Cosmopolitan a dining destination. At star Spanish chef José Andrés’ Jaleo, indulge in paellas made with house butifarra sausage and wild mushrooms or with lobster and cuttlefish. Or opt for the Jaleo Experience, which is a tour of Spain via modern tapas. Andrés is also at the helm of China Poblano, a spot serving Chinese and Mexican cuisine. Celebrity chef Scott Conant brings modern Italian to the casino hotel with an outpost of Scarpetta and a more informal wine bar, D.O.C.G.

New York fine dining imports include Blue Ribbon Sushi and STK — a favorite among athletes and stars — for dry-aged steaks from chef Stephen Hopcraft. If you’re in the mood for an all-American menu, there’s The Henry. The Wicked Spoon buffet features cooks and pastry chefs concocting their most sinful dishes in front of you. For something out of the ordinary, hit up Rose. Rabbit. Lie., a modern supper club that blurs the lines between restaurant, bar, club and live entertainment venue.

Of course, room service is available 24-7 for that late-night burger or huevos rancheros craving (or pretty much anything you could want; the in-room dining menu is a 22-page book). Just pull up a chair on your terrace and dine by the bright lights of the Strip.
