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.

Any update from your stay as a Gold? I'll be there in a couple of weeks and want to know what to look forward to...if anything...as a Gold.

Anybody else had any experiences as a Gold lately?

Thanks.

I have stayed at the Cosmopolitan 6 times since they opened 2 yrs ago. As a gold i really don't expect much. Not too sound stuck up, but i have a casino host at the Cosmo so i usually book through him for better rooms, comped rooms etc. I quite honestly was unaware that the cosmo was even Marriott until this yr lol No signs anywhere in the hotel...

Since this hotel is more of a casino hotel, they seem to cater more to their high level members in their players card (identity membership)

I got back from my stay last week. Was pretty impressed with the hotel and room in general. I did the $20 trick and got upgraded from a city room to a terrace studio with a premium view in the west tower. Other than that all we got was free internet.

As far as other things go I will say the hotel seems to be party central on the strip. We were there the weekend before Halloween and It was much busier at 5am than at 5pm.

Yup! It's pretty funny. I'd be going down to the gym, at 6:30 AM, to work out and the party goers were still stumbling home.

The scene was pretty interesting as we were heading to the airport at 5am on a Tuesday morning. At the elevators on our floor we had a group of young ladies asking us what room they were in.

When we got down to the lobby and checked out there were a few umm....professionals (my assumption) that security was dealing with and discussing how many times they had been asked to leave the property and were now going to be charged with trespassing.

I'd definitely stay there again assuming the price was right and loved the hotel but it gets a little crazy in the early morning hours. If you are in town for work or a convention it might not be the best place to stay.

Cosmo has what is arguably the best nightclub in Vegas right now with Marquee, and yeah, it'd probably be shutting down around 4-5am depending on crowds.

Done the Marquee->Secret Pizza->Walk-of-Shame home to my hotel myself a number of times now.

Secret pizza at 4am one close to the best thing I've ever eaten. Now, had I gone at 8pm I'm sure I would have a different opinion but it was well worth the visit each morning.

Wife and I just got back from another stay at the Cosmo. Booked a 1 BR terrace. Was told at check -in that we were upgraded to a terrace suite, but when we got to room it was not the case (suite is 50% larger and has 2 bathrooms). I did not want to change rooms as we were happy with the great view and I did not want to deal with the hassle.

We had dinner 1 nite at Holstein's - very good.

Of course we took the 2 Wicked Spoon buffets as our Plat amenity.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Check out was quick and easy, and we were at the airport in no time.

If traveling alone, would they split The Wicked Spoon for two into twice for one?

Has anyone been able to checkout using their TV at the Cosmo? I am about 5 for 5 in NOT being able to. I try every time and it always denies me. It irks me to no end that I have to stand in line for 10-20 minutes just to sign and say I 'm leaving. Most of the time I'm on a LNF rate so I don't know if that has something to do with it or what, so I'm just curious if that feature works or not.

It has been noted a number of times how bad the services are at Cosmopolitan. They designed a very poor network for in room services with Voice/Data/Video going through a switch and VPN in each room. They do not have enough bandwidth to do trivial tasks. That is why your TV jitters so bad when watching TV esp. sporting events. So basic TV tasks take forever and probably end up timing out before the task can be completed. Money is usually spent elsewhere at casino/hotels.

On a side note, i have had issues on almost every bill at cosmopolitan which needed to get looked at.
