Checking In: Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

One thing that I truly love about Vegas is that there are many hotel options. Of all the places I have stayed visiting this magical city, The Cosmopolitan has by far surpassed all my expectations. While it is a luxury hotel, it is not overdone or pretentious. Its the right amount of luxury and mix of modern details. The Cosmopolitan is a Ritz Carlton Partner Hotel – and I well, I do love the Ritz Carlton. This was a good fit for me.
The location of the hotel is just about in the center of the strip putting you at arms reach of everything – including the best shopping in the city!
After visiting Las Vegas 9 times over the years, I can say with certainty, this has been my favorite hotel stay in the city.

Welcome to the Cosmopolitan

When you walk into the lobby area, tall columns of visually pleasing images flow. While I was waiting to check-in I was mesmerized by the pops of color across them. A lot of hotel lobby’s tend to be quiet or offer minimal visuals, but I found this area to be one of my favorite hotel check-ins.
The check-in process went by very quickly – all the happy agents were ready to get people checked in and on their way.

Terrace Suite:

The room itself is about 910 sq. feet. When you walk in there is a small hallway, a bathroom, and then you walk into an open floor plan that has a living area, kitchen and workstation with a TV – from this area you can access the balcony. Beyond this room is a separate bedroom and a large bathroom. You can also access the balcony from the bedroom.
The design elements are luxurious and modern. I loved the simplicity of the art pieces throughout the suite and the neutral tones.
I only stayed one night in this hotel, but getting out of bed was no easy task. I slept right in the middle with all the pillows and I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud <3
The best feature of this room is the terrace – and it offers the best view of Las Vegas in my opinion. The view alone is a reason to book this room – daytime, sunset or even sunrise – the view is magnificent. You can even see the Bellagio Fountains from a new perspective.

The hotel has a lot of exciting things going on inside of it. Below are some of its features:

  • 3 pools

  • Sahra Spa and Hammam

Due to my limited stay I did not get to experience everything in the hotel, but two items did stand out. They offered “Dive-In Movies” at the Boulevard Pool the night I was there. Top Gun played on their big screen and people lounged all around the pool to watch it.The other thing I loved at the hotel was the Chandelier Bar – which is 3 separate bar opportunities with one on the main level, one inside and the other on top. Its quite the artistic piece to see.

Overall I loved the hotel. I cannot say enough how much I loved the views from the room – it truly felt like a special visit for me because I had never seen Vegas from that vantage point. If you are planning a trip to Las Vegas – stay at least 1 night in this hotel in the Terrace Suite and I promise you that you will not want to leave the terrace.

    Wow, talk about a room with a view! Thanks for sharing those amazing pics.

    Omg 910 square feet? I feel like that might be bigger than my apartment. This place is beautiful. I didn’t love Vegas but maybe if I stayed here I would’ve had a better experience!

      It is a gorgeous hotel. My experiences in Vegas have been good and bad – but as my most visited city in the world, the good has outweighed the bad

    I’ve always wondered what the Cosmo was like! I have been wanting to stay here since it opened actually! We always do priceline and end up in Luxor, haha! We need to upgrade and stay here next time! It’s also such a great location, I love the penny slots there! haha

      I have never stayed in the Luxor but I love the casino there and Tacos & Tequila restaurant!

    ERMERGERD that lobby looks amazing. I’ve actually never been to Vegas, but would be interested in staying here if/when I go in the future. This looks amazing and that view is incredible.

    Wow, everything that I’ve seen on your blog and all what you have written really left me in awe. I couldn’t stop saying wow, while gazing at your photos and while reading it. I love to stay here as well and enjoy everything what it has to offer. The interior design has an intricate design which have really caught my attention. I hope I can experience to stay here soon. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place with us.

    I can see why you loved the hotel! The Terrace Suite is bigger than my first apartment. 🙂 It’s gorgeous, and that terrace would be such a draw, I might be tempted not to leave the hotel. Vegas is famous for their special “touches” and the drive-in movie in the pool certainly qualifies. That would be a must for me, too. I’ve only be in the city once — we crashed on our way back home from Tonopah. But I’m sure we’ll be back again, and next time, the Cosmopolitan has to be the way to go!

      I do hope you make it back to the city – it has so much to offer.

    I stayed here a few years ago and absolutely loved it! I was actually surprised that it was a Marriott Hotel. I didn’t get to stay in the Terrace Suite, but hopefully next time I can cuz it looks amazing!

    It is great to get a tips on where to stay in Vegas since there are so many hotels to choose from. The lobby looks so cool. I haven’t stayed in such a big room before. Never been to Vegas, but would love to go and stay at Cosmopolitan. ☺

    The Cosmopolitan looks elegant and seems to seamlessly integrate the strains of luxury and convenience. What I like is the fact that its elegance is subdued and not over the top. The lobby seems to strike a pleasant contrast with its quirky decor.

    Wow I would probably stay here for the view too! I love all the hotels that you stay in. You stay in the best rooms.

    Definitely wanna stay here on my next stay.
