Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas - The Real Deal :
After much fanfare and hype, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas began gaming on December 18th at 8:01pm with a roll of 9 by musician Mayer Hawthorne, who 7'd out two rolls later. Our first few stays at Cosmopolitan went much the same way. Of the 7 sets of reservations the VT staff, friends and family had at Cosmo, all seven of them went south in one way or another - lost reservations, botched room assignments, double booked into a room already occupied. Repeated stays have had similar issues, but with decreasing frequency. Dining, stellar. Boozing, stellar. Clubs, stellar. Casino... pretty but strangely uncomfortable.
Location of Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas:

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas History
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas was originally intended to be a CityCenter-ish dual tower urban condo/hotel on top of a casino thing-a-mahoojis. Then the real estate market imploded and the original visionary defaulted control to lenders Deutsche Bank. After a period of inactivity, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (as it is legally required to be called) shifted from residential aspirations towards high end resort with condo-style room offerings.
When all is said and done, The Cosmopolitan cost about $3.9 bajillion dollars to build and fully finish. The resort will have 2,400 hotel and condo-hotel rooms, a 100,000-square-foot casino, an 1,800-seat theater, 50,000-square-foot fitness/spa complex and 300,000 square feet of restaurant, retail, and entertainment space. Construction began in early 2005, with an planned opening in late 2007/early 2008. The property was designed by Arquitectonica whose credits include Miami's American Airlines Arena, The Discovery Science Center in Orange County, CA, the Bronx Museum and City of Dreams in Macau. The casino floor was designed by Friedmutter & Associates, with some assistance by Adam Tihany. The rooms and lobby and chandelier were designed by David Rockwell.
The Rooms at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
The Cosmopolitan features two types of room offerings, the City Room and Terraces. City Rooms are standard hotel rooms that come in dual queen configuration only. The Terraces are former condo suites with kitchenettes and outside terraces that come in studio, one and two bedroom options. The pot is sweetened with all options by selecting premium view (Bellagio lake) or getting a "wraparound" which is essentially a corner suite with a terrace on two sides. We've reviewed all of them.
