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.

Unless of course you have M Life Pearl or higher, then you get free parking for all the money you lost in the casino!

I could also either book the Westin (non-FHR), which should post with no issues, or forget all this and book an FHR rate at a non-Marriott. Thoughts?

Thanks.
This year my nights from Cosmo posted correctly but last year it took several calls to get them posted. The meager Platinum benefits have me looking at the Waldorf across the street.

I stopped renting a car to avoid the Cosmo parking fee and switched to Uber/Lyft. I would say it was great on off nights, but holiday weekends were an absolute mess getting around via rideshare. Maybe it's time to rent again.

I've decided to give the Waldorf Astoria (old MO) a try for a future stay instead of staying at the Cosmo. I have liked the Cosmo on past stays but the WA was in the same price range and it gets good reviews. Part of my decision is also based on the overall CS I have received recently at the merged MR. My frustration with them has pushed me to look for HH alternatives more often and the WA LV seems like a good alternative to the Cosmo.

I am at the Cosmo

Hey folks,

I have just checked into the awesome Cosmopolitan. As a Platinum, I was offered the following:

1) $10 credit or 1000 points

2) Upgrade from a City room to a Terrace Studio

3) 15% discount at Wicked Spoon plus the use of the express line for free

4) 2 PM check out

5) Free use of the Autograph lounge

Hope this helps those of you who are Platinum.

Happy Holidays!

I知 planing a trip there in two weeks but I知 not staying at the cosmo. Can I still flash my Marriott platinum card and get 15% off and use of the express line? Or is it guest only?

what about the $10 parking fee? Is that waived somehow for Marriott Platnium?

As far as I know, yes for wicked spoon. No for parking.



Parking is supposed to be part of the new increased resort fee this year. Not sure if they implemented that yet.

Parking is included as part of the $39 resort fee.

I thought Bellagio charges for parking too (along with all the MGM properties)?

You may not receive Platinum benefits if you book through Expedia. You may view 2.1.f Non-Qualifying Rates of the Loyalty program for more details.

Just in case anyone was interested I did still get free 1 pm late checkout as Marriott Gold on New Years Day. No upgrade, though I did get an email offer with some very fair sounding upgrade prices.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask. But

It seems like Wicked Spoon Hours are
Brunch Mon – Thurs: 8AM - 5PM
Dinner Mon – Thurs: 5 - 9PM

Does anyone know if I go in at 4:00 will they let me stay past 5:00 and into dinner time?
