The Cosmopolitan's Curiously Cracked Tub Stopper Tip
As "Pro Tips" go, this oneís 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.
Iíve 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.
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.
