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.

Las Vegas Cosmopolitan Hotel [Master Thread]

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory?id=11479646

Cosmopolitan's going to be an Autograph hotel.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel-casino is turning to Marriott International Inc. for customers.

The under-construction resort on Wednesday said it has sealed a distribution agreement with Marriott to be part of its Autograph Collection, a set of independent upscale hotels the franchiser launched last year.

The partnership gives the nearly 3,000-room Cosmopolitan access to Marriott's vast customer database, and gives loyal Marriott customers their first option to stay in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip and win rewards points.

Cosmopolitan officials say it will be the largest resort in the Autograph Collection and its only property with gambling.

Interesting note and thanks for sharing.

It does change the dymanic as IIRC the Ren was a short distance off the strip, which it actually promotes as a good thing and in some ways it probably is. I'd researched the Ren but ultimately my LAS trip never came to pass.

This is great! Seems like 1/3 of the rooms open up on 12/15, and I will be in Vegas 12/16 - 12/19. I wonder when/if we can make reservations.

Excellent decision Marriott. There have been very few choices in Vegas, for any chain, and this is a total flagship property.

Any guesses on what rewards category the Cosmopolitan will be?

This news A) makes me want to travel to Vegas more frequently B) stay at more Marriott Properties worldwide to earn free nights here.

I was a PH a few weeks ago (I live in Vegas) and I feel the gaming floor has changed (not a layout, but the feel of the clientele - it used to be "hip/trendy" and I think with their recent legal issues with the clubs there, it's gond down hill) with Harrah's taking over the hotel.

There are a few big hotels in Vegas that do it right - Pallazzo, Venetian, Wynn, Encore, where there's a focus on the hotel (and service) and the casino doesn't run the hotel (every MGM and Harrah's product) - hopefully, this will be one of them!

Excited about this as well. The most amazing quote I saw in the article ?

"It gets me a position on the seventh largest retail website in the world and by far the largest in terms of hotels."

This is great news. I usually go to Vegas with friends, and they look at me funny when I suggest staying at a "boring" Marriott property just to collect a few points.

We've stayed at the JW Marriott in Summerlin which is fantastic, but off the strip. Just recently stayed at both the Marriott Suites, and the Renaissance. Both are pretty blah.

However, I just recently stayed at Vdara (not affiliated with Marriott) and it was incredible in every aspect. It was chic, elegant, and had personality. I'm hoping Cosmopolitan will share these characteristics of Vdara, and allow me to collect some Marriott points at the same time.

The two-tower resort will open without 987 of its rooms, with most of them opening incrementally through July next year. Cosmopolitan CEO John Unwin has said the delay will give more time to finish interior work and move furniture.

The company said Wednesday that 19 rooms would open after July 2011, when "management deems appropriate."
so opening with 2,008 rooms on dec 15

id imagine there are some larger units in that 968 and 19

first marriott im kind of interested in.
although the concept they started in miami with the 50 room independent wing could also be developed well.

Any ideas on when this will be added to Marriott's reservation system? Looking to make some Vegas rezzies, but it doesn't up on Marriott's site.
