Hotel Website: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the only charges that qualify for Points are as follows:
- Room rate, room service food and beverage, in-room movies, phone calls and in-room minibar purchases
- Points cannot be earned on any other purchases at hotel outlets or for hotel services

The Cosmopolitan is a "resort," so basically the only elite benny is a possible upgrade. Elites are not exempt from the resort fee

Resort fee is $35+tax. This fee is increasing to $39+tax effective 01/01/2019.

Hotel charges $10 for self-parking & $18 for valet parking starting Spring 2017. Motorcycles & 2-wheel vehicles exempt. Identity Sterling status provides comp'ed self-parking, Identity Gold status provides comp'ed valet parking.

Cosmopolitan is exempt from providing free wifi to Plats per Marriott's T&Cs, however it is included with the mandatory $35 daily resort fee so there is still no extra charge to any guest for using it.

Platinums receive:

* use of Platinum check-in area (to the left of main desks)

* Platinum arrival gift is $10FB coupon or 1,000 points

* room upgrade (space available) - better luck on mid-week stays than weekend stays. sometimes a 'sandwich' (ie, bribe) to front desk does the trick.

* free tea/coffee 6am - noon in the plat lobby check-in area

* Wicked Spoon: Marriott Rewards Platinums (and PPs) get to use preferred line and get 15% discount when staying at the property. Just show your MR Plat or PP card.
You can book through Virtuoso as well as Amex FHR for complimentary breakfast buffet at Wicked spoon.

Resort fee:

* $35 (+ tax) per day for resort fee, which includes gym access, local + long distance calls, Wifi, pool access. The resort fee is not waived.
This fee is increasing to $39+tax effective 01/01/2019.

Hat tip to billycwhatup for these next 2 points:

* Identity points and MR points can not be earned on the same stay

Other tips

The Terrace Suites are the most common room type and are classified as studio and one bedroom, with options for King, 2 Queens with or without a fountain view. They are essentially the same size, however (10 sq ft difference), but the layouts differ.

The King Studio Suite has a standard bathroom with shower and tub, a living room area with large sitting area and an L shaped sofa and the bed is in a separate area, though not separated.

The King One BR Suite has the same kind of living room area, with the bedroom separated by sliding doors and the bathroom is larger, with a "soaking tub".

If you get a terrace suite of any kind with 2 Queens, the living area will be smaller.

And unless your room type is described as "fountain view", you aren't guaranteed it, though Platinum status will get you upgraded on check in if they have one available.

If you book any of these room types and want to aim higher, I would try a giving the receptionist a 50$ "sandwich", and ask if any wraparounds upgrades would be available. If they say yes, there is a good chance that it will be a wraparound facing south-east or south-west, which for me would be a no go. Taste in view is personal of course, but for me the fountain-eiffel tower view are so much nicer than the south facing views. Also when you would have the choice between a low level wraparound or high level terrace suite, I would still take the high level terrace suite, because a number of floors on the east tower are blocked by the big Bellagio sign. (see youtube vids).

If you really want a high level wraparound then you probably would have to pay, which can sometimes be not that much. If I'm not mistaken I think they offered me a wraparound at 150$ per night more, but we originally booked a 1 bedroom terrace room without view.

Last tip : If you would get the choice of wraparound I would definitely take a high floor east tower one, facing north-east. That would give you bellagio fountain + eiffel tower view, but also a good portion of the south strip.

Well, it only takes $125.000 wagered on slots or $300.000 wagered on video poker.

That's certainly a fluke. When I was there, they turned away about as many guests as they helped, including at least two Marriott platinum guests who were redirected to the Autograph Lounge.

Is this correct? I would love for it to be true, but it seems way too easy. Can somebody please confirm?

Not sure this could be considered "way too easy". Did you correctly count the 0s in those figures?

If blowing $125K on slots is not a big deal, you are probably not overly concerned with room upgrades...

I'm assuming they read that as $125 since the poster used a period ($125.000) instead of a comma ($125,000).

The USA is about the only country that uses commas for large numbers and periods for decimals. Almost everywhere else it is the opposite, and I see the poster is from the EU - I do understand the confusion from us Americans, though

Yes, that is correct. I misread it as $125. Thanks to everyone for the help.

I was the poster using a period instead of a comma; but would anyone use three 0s after the period when you mean $125? And wouldn't it be a little too optimistic gaining top player status at one of the hottest spots in Vegas for wagering $125?

That's not true at all. People who say this are often from the EU where they use the opposite of the US, but it's not just the US. Much of Asia, including Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore, India etc. all use commas for large numbers.

I'm Marriott Gold and I'm staying at Cosmo next week. Just got a mailing from Marriott advertising my gold benefits (and new SPG language) and one is "Guaranteed Lounge Access/Breakfast.'
I read the Wiki and it just says Golds get lounge access. I'm just wondering if this new mailing indicates some kind of change that we might get a breakfast also? Or does the lounge access alone satisfy that bullet item?

Cosmopolitan is a "resort" property so there is no free breakfast.
