Cosmopolitan Review

Rating: 5/5

What We Like

  • Top-Tier Service: There are only a handful of resorts like WynnVenetianWaldorf Astoria, and Four Seasons with the quality of service and amenities Cosmopolitan offers.
  • Restaurant Collection: You will find one of the best restaurant collections in all of Las Vegas at Cosmo. Cosmo has something at every price point and appetite from fine dining to the best food court.
  • Live Entertainment: The Cosmopolitan has excellent live entertainment, including Opium, concerts at The Chelsea, and events at The Barbershop.
  • Great Location: Near the heart of The Strip, The Cosmopolitan is located in a great spot to explore Las Vegas.

What We Don’t Like

  • High Table Minimums: If you like to gamble at the tables, be prepared to spend $15-$25 per hand. If that’s too rich for your blood, you’ll play electronic machines.
  • Very Expensive: Like most luxury properties, the Cosmo is expensive. Room rates peak at $499/night.

Bottom Line
