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.

In late June I checked in at 10:30 PM at main desk as a first time guest.I was recognized as a Lifetime Plat., told there was an upgrade to the next highest level of basic rooms. I was asked if I wanted something else and said I was fine with the upgrade I had. She excused herself and came back and put me in a 1200 square foot suite with wrap around balcony. There was no “ sandwich” to get the upgrade. it was the best upgrade of my life

i used the Autograph lounge throughout my stay to get coffee refills.i also used Autograph lounge to check out after being given a 2 PM checkout time. I can’t say enough good things about the hotel or my treatment there.

Hey guys!

Any chance i can "sandwich" myself from a city room to a terrace studio? If so, should I take the 50 dollars approach or go bigger?
I got offered a really good price in the basic room. Not sure about the view tho.

You could try, sandwich is never guaranteed to work. Is the price differential more than $50? I was in the same boat and upgraded myself instead of risking it at check-in. GF appreciated it

It varies per day but it's around $400 for the whole stay. That's kinda winning me... Never had that kind of offer for Vegas, even though it's a midweek stay..
Thanks for helping!!

I am booked to stay here next week with Amex Plat FHR...

I was planning on attaching my MR number to the stay to get some more free nights as I am just shy of hitting 50 for the year. Looking at the Identity program, I could probably get the Sterling status and have one free night with some of the spa/food purchases I planned on making. Is it possible to mix & match Identity and MR earn through a stay? Or can you only get Identity through room charges that would go to the MR account?

If you book via Amex FHR do you still get Marriott Stay/Night Credit?

I know there is a well established policy regarding earning Marriott points only for the room and what basically whatever charges happen behind the door (excluding escorts!) But what about earning Marriott elite NIGHTS in the case of a comped stay? If I am on an Identity comped stay where I am not paying for the room or even the resort fee, is there any official policy on whether can you still earn Marriott elite nights?

Thinking of staying this weekend. Wondering how the breakfast benefit for plat applies ... More importantly, the rate is cheaper if I book through the Cosmopolitan site rather than the Marriott site. Do I get Marriott benefits if I book throught the Cosmopolitan site directly?

Can't speak for other benefits, but I know that I got free "enhanced internet" by giving my Marriott Gold number while on a stay comped by my Identity casino host.

Yes, you'll just have to give them your MR number when you check in and they will apply the benefits even if you book directly through the Cosmo.
