So here is what we love about this hotel:

Cosmopolitan hotel Las Vegas rooms
We enjoyed the spectacular Terrace One Bedroom suite with a terrace which overlooked the Bellagio Fountains and Paris hotel. The rooms are luxurious and well designed with spacious closets, comfy living room areas with a large business desk and ideal kitchenettes. The beds are massive and very comfortable whilst my favourite feature has to be the Japanese soaking tub with a great view of the strip.
Prices are expensive but the value of what you get for your money is excellent. Our suite with a strip view cost us around $1200 whilst rooms with a less impressive view at the other high end hotels on the strip would cost nearly double, if not more.
Restaurants in The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas
Similar to many of the top hotels on the strip, The Cosmopolitan has a variety of restaurants onsite. After trying a lot of the buffets in Vegas, we have to say that the Wicked Spoon in The Cosmopolitan was our favourite. It offered high quality food in manageable portions from around the world whilst upholding the classic and classy ambience of the hotel.
The Cosmopolitan is also is home to the ‘Hidden Pizza’, a pizza spot hidden in between two restaurants on the third floor, that offers hot yummy New York styled pizza by the slice or pie – ideal after or during a late night gambling.
Other restaurants include the Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill run by master chefs Eric and Bruce Bromberg as well as China Poblano (a fusion of Chinese and Mexican food) along with 13 other high quality restaurants at various prices to meet every customer.
The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas casino
So we aren’t big gamblers, we don’t really know how most table games work but at The Cosmopolitan we enjoyed trying the many electronic operated table type games such as roulette. The Casino is big enough to give you options and opportunities to play your favourite games but not too big that you can get lost. The waitresses serving free drinks to those gambling were lovely, quick and efficient.
The Cosmopolitan Decor
The Cosmopolitan sparkles. But not in that tacky, old glamour Vegas meets Hollywood kind of way, but in an undisputed elegance that attracts your eye to every corner of the room. The three floored Chandelier is breathtaking and is the ideal decor for such a beautiful hotel, whilst the floor sparkles throughout the hotel.
