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.

I am currently Ambassador and seem to be getting the same upgrades I was getting when I was MR Platinum. I don't ask for anything because I don't care about what they give me. Next check in I will ask if they think Ambassador gets more upgrade juice over Titanic/Platinum/Gold/Silver Status.

Checked in a couple weeks ago for 4 nights and had a confirmed reservation for a terrace studio, when I checked in to the Autograph Lounge the agent welcomed me as a Platinum and upgraded me to a 1 bedroom premium view in the Chelsea Tower without request.
She Offered 4 bottles water as well.
Coffee machine is Starbucks so super slow but makes great coffee also an urn of drip Starbucks available in the morning. I was not expecting much and the room upgrade made our stay really nice.

Question about Cosmo and Best Rate Guarantee for Same Day booking..

hi y’all. long time lurker, and maybe i did post a question and/or response about rental cars in the EA at BOS some years ago but for all intents and purposes let’s just say i’m ‘new’ here am very (very) grateful to all of you as i have oftentimes found that the questions that bring me here have already been asked and quite thoroughly answered. i apologize and appreciate your patience if this one has been covered elsewhere; i did check, i also read the super helpful BRG guide and the official t’s & c’s per marriott (including the recent “enhancements” to the program).

bottom line, (1) does the BRG apply to Cosmopolitan bookings made via marriott’s site? (2) did they simply do away with the same-day booking provision? in the past it was 10 pm hotel time for same-day bookings.

currently , i’m looking at a room for tomorrow (monday 8 april) for one night and am seeing $280 on marriott
site; skiplagged has rates starting at ~159 (not “skiplagged exclusive” rate, though i haven’t fully assessed whether they would qualify for other reasons yet, because if the claim had to be submitted 24 hours before check-in, i’m already too late and won’t waste my time with comparisons.. i’ll just book the lower rate.


if anyone can confirm , clarify, or correct my understanding of the new rules, i really would appreciate it.. realize this may be more of a general bonvoy/brg question than cosmopolitan specific. i posted it here because i thought someone with specific knowledge or experience with this property might answer it differently due to the other idiosyncrasies. i.e identity, etc. that are unique to this particular situation/place

TL;DR:
BRG for cosmopolitan???

what about if i am making a same-day booking?

Yes you can BRG Cosmopolitan on the Marriott site.
Dont know if less than 24 hours can be BRG.

No, not by T&C. You can't expect a BRG response within 24 hours anyway.
You must find a qualifying Comparison Rate and submit a completed claim form within 24 hours of booking the reservation through the Marriott reservation channel, and at least 24 hours before the standard check-in time at the applicable Marriott hotel.

Yes, Bonvoy Platinum will get you VIP lounge check-in access regardless of Identity tier.

Make sure your Marriott account number is attached to your reservation to avoid any hassle on arrival. Also Marriott status allows you to access the Autograph lounge. I was told there is a separate "VIP" lounge for Identity Elites, but I've never seen it
