Why You Should Stay at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is my favorite hotel currently, offering the best views in Vegas from amazing balconies overlooking the Bellagio Fountain (assuming you upgrade to that view). I would stay in The Cosmo on every trip if not for the premium price, but it’s often well worth the splurge.
Cosmo has my favorite selection of restaurants that makes it very hard to pick a favorite. It also offers a nice selection of different budget options that make it my King of the Vegas Food scene. China Poblano (Chinese & Mexican fusion) is the one restaurant I always seem to end up at, Estiatorio Milos is one of the top Mediterranean restaurants in the country, and zuma was the best new restaurant I tried on my last visit. Other favorites include STK (a new-wave Steakhouse), Scarpetta (Italian), Red Plate (Chinese), Momofuku (Asian fusion), Beauty & Essex (sharing plates, beautiful presentation), and Rose. Rabbit. Lie. (dinner and a show).
But where Cosmo really stands out is the new Block 16 Urban Food Hall, Egg Slut, and Secret Pizza. Each concept offers more affordable grab and go options without sacrificing quality. The Urban Food Hall includes Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, Ghost Donkey: Mexcal & Tequila Bar, Lardo (sandwiches), Pok Pok Wings (Thai & Vietnamese), and more.
The Cosmo has a cool pool experience overlooking the strip but doesn’t have the sprawling complexes to compete with Aria or Bellagio, which will suit many. They also are home to Marquee dayclub and nightclub which offer some of the hottest shows around. They also feature movies overlooking the strip at the pool complex throughout the year, which is a cool feature you won’t find everywhere.
