Cosmopolitan Hotel/Las Vegas, NV.

Posted on 14 July 2010

I recently had the opportunity to do a hardhat tour of the new Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. The hotel is scheduled to be completed and on-line in December 2010. The tour was conducted by Megan Archambeault, Senior Sales Manager. I have known Megan for a number of years and she has not lost a step in her enthusiasm and commitment.

 

My visit started in the porte-cochere where guest arrive. The space is spacious and is well organized to handle both personal cars, limos (including the omni present stretches), and taxis. On the opposite end of the porte-cochere is space for groups. There is ample space for motorcoaches as well as mini-vans.

 

Guest arrive through glass doors and are welcomed by individual check-in desk. At the Cosmopolitan you will not find the long and expansive check-in desk for guest. There are flat screens everywhere to inform guest of key information. Each column in the guest lobby has spectacular digital screens hidden into each column.

 

As guest move through the airy lobby, they approach escalators and elevators which do not require guest to have to navigate through the casino. Believe me, the casino is spectacular, but some guest would prefer not to have to pass through a casino to arrive at their room. Back to the casino a bit later.

 

I had the opportunity to view a run-of-the-house room and can attest it rivals most hotels premium rooms and includes an outdoor terrace with a great view. The decor and colors are exquisite, and provide for a comforting and relaxing environment. There are flat screen TV’s and the latest in technology controlling lighting. As a guest enters the room there is a switch which displays…”Hello” for guest arrival which turns on lighting in the guest room and “Goodbye” when guest leave their room to turn off lighting.

 

Each room has a mini-kitchen. The rationale, guest rooms were originally planned to be hotel/condos. But with the downturn, the owners decided to move forward with a hotel only plan. So guest will be treated with the features normally provide in condos.

 

The second category I visited was a corner suite. It has many of the amenities as a ROH guest room with the exception of two major improvements…a full kitchen and a complete wrap around private terraces with a great view of the Vegas skyline.

 

The casino is going to be one you will not forget. The three-floor chandelier in the casino bar was breathtaking. One special feature to check out is the private gaming “cabanas” for guest who live in the high style.

 

The restaurants and bars were in their final designs but most of the restaurants will have celebrity chefs as proprietors.

 

For groups…there is no lack of space for any type of program one wishes to hold at the Cosmopolitan. The hotel has approximately 150,000 square feet of multi-level meeting facilities. The space can be used in totality or can be used in smaller sections. Each meeting will be assigned a special program coordinator who will be knowledgeable of every need for each group. One of the key features of the meeting area is that attendees can take an elevator or escalator right to the meeting space and do not have to travel through other guest areas…including the casino. I rate this feature as outstanding.

 

In short, the Cosmopolitan Hotel will be a grand addition to Las Vegas. It is unique and exquisite.
