The Cosmopolitan's Curiously Cracked Tub Stopper Tip

As "Pro Tips" go, this one’s a bit obscure, but bear with me. Every time - every single time - I have stayed at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the bathroom's tub stopper has been broken. I've come to expect it. Here's how to avoid the naked disappointment of a delayed soak.

I’ve made it a habit to check the stopper right after checking in. The stoppers are supposed to function in a push down, pop up manner. Push down, and the stopper should stay down, preventing the tub from draining (water makes for a more enjoyable bath). Push on the stopper while it's down, and it should pop up, allowing the tub to drain. To check the stopper, you needn't fill the tub with water, just give it a push. If it refuses to stay locked in the down position, it's busted. You can confirm this by unscrewing the stopper and removing it.

Cosmo Tub Stopper

Inspect the stopper. It will almost certainly be cracked. At this point, you'll have to call the front desk and request that a building maintenance person come fix it. I once had a maintenance man tell me that they have a huge box of replacement parts for these stoppers, and that a large portion of his day is spent replacing them. Apparently, they wear out very quickly.

Imagine, right now in a dimly lit room, a green-visored bean counter is discovering that Cosmo's yearly losses are largely attributable to busted tub stoppers. You're welcome, Blackstone.

Obviously not designed to carry the load of all that money being poured down it every day.

I usually don't spend much time in tubs but I do have a weakness for the tub/shower combo at the Aria. And if you close the glass door, you can have a little steam room action too with the hot-water pouring down from the shower. Nice way to veg while having a glass of wine or two....

Nice. I'm going to have to try this the next time I want to abuse Aria's water bill.

As for the Cosmo, I wonder how much it would cost to replace the crop of stoppers with traditional drain plugs.

Nice one, JeffinOKC...!

I will be making my first stay in July at The Cosmo, I assume this is also for the Japanese Soaking tub I was so looking forward to?
