Open December 2010, the luxurious Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
adjoins the equally new CityCenter development towards the south end of the Strip, built on a relatively small area of land mostly away from the main street, extending back towards I-15. The 100,000 sq ft ground floor casino links the two 52 storey accommodation towers (West End and Eastside), both strikingly illuminated at night with blue strip lighting; the best view is from the north, looking across the lake at Bellagio. The small frontage on Las Vegas Boulevard includes a casino entrance and Bond
venue/bar, but the main entrance is off-Strip along Harmon Avenue.
Away from all the expected gaming activities, the main facilities at the Cosmopolitan are Sahra Spa & Hammam
, a beautifully designed treatment and wellness retreat, a hair/nail salon (Violet Hour
), a small selection of upscale shops, three contrasting outdoor pools, extensive meeting space and no fewer than 13 high class restaurants, some featuring celebrity chefs. The main entertainment venue is Marquee Nightclub/Dayclub
, and while there are no regular shows, the hotel welcomes an eclectic mix of DJs, singers and other artists. Accommodation ranges from the standard size but still elegant City Rooms to several types of suite, some with multiple levels and private terraces.
