Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas continues the 21st century tradition of new resorts on the Las Vegas strip being upscale, expensive properties.

Cosmopolitan is not a part of MGM Mirage's CityCenter (next door to the south) and is one of the few strip properties that is not owned by MGM Mirage or Harrah's. The owner is Deutsche Bank.

If Cosmopolitan Las Vegas has a theme, it's giant shoes. I had to wait about 15 minutes to get a photo of this shoe because people were constantly climbing into it to have their photo taken.

The decor is upscale and a bit fancy. Not as fancy as Bellagio or Venetian; slightly more fancy than Mandalay Bay or Aria.

The Wicked Spoon buffet in Cosmopolitan Las Vegas gets rave reviews. Like all large strip resorts, they have several restaurants on site; including the unusual China Poblano which combines Chinese and Mexican cuisines. Bean and cheese eggrolls? Sweet & sour enchiladas?

I'm using the term "Cosmopolitan Las Vegas" because they were sued by Cosmopolitan magazine before they opened, and apparently agreed not to call themselves Cosmopolitan. Their official name is Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Even though no one should have any trouble telling the difference between a magazine and a hotel.

No, I don't want some weird spider web looking thing hanging over my head while playing blackjack. Some parts of the casino are a bit too fancy.

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a good choice if you've been staying at the Bellagio every year and want to try something different, or if you want a room with a balcony.

    Interesting article. Wish I had seen your blogs before I headed to Las Vegas last March. But I will definitely read the rest of them, and prepare better before my next trip.

    Thanks for writing.
