The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas might as well be a drug. This place is not only stimulating...it's addictive.Seriously, The Cosmopolitan is without a doubt the hippest hotel in Sin City, thanks to an overdose of technology and the outrageously stylish interior design. You want to see and be seen here.Located near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip between the CityCenter complex and Bellagio, The Cosmopolitan consists of two New York-style towers. The architecture provides a refreshing change from the city's many themed resorts.You know you're somewhere special the moment you check in. With eight columns wrapped in mirrors and video screens, the lobby is like a computer-generated dream world.Just steps away lies Vesper Bar, named for the obscure fictional drink created by secret agent James Bond and the character Vesper Lynd. With a ceiling covered in metal mesh to resemble a cloud, this is the first of many cool drinking establishments you'll encounter. And speaking of 007, there's another sleek and sexy bar at the front of the resort named Bond.However, the centerpiece of The Cosmopolitan is The Chandelier. Set within a flowing curtain of crystal beads (you have to see this to understand how awesome it is), the bar features three stories, and each one has a unique vibe. There's a classic cocktail nook on top, an ultra lounge in the middle and a high-energy social scene at the bottom. You could (and should) go to a different level of The Chandelier for three nights in a row to experience it properly.When it comes to all-out partying, The Cosmopolitan can fill any prescription. Marquee Nightclub hosts some of the best DJs on the EDM circuit. Want to be on a high? Just get out on its dance floor where you'll be enveloped by pulsating sounds and four-story LED screens. During the spring and summer months, Marquee Dayclub offers daytime poolside debauchery. The Cosmopolitan also has a "social club" called Rose. Rabbit. Lie. It's part restaurant, part bar, part club...okay, we know that sounds confusing, but it's really cool. So just trust us and go.More than just a hint of rock 'n' roll hedonism permeates The Cosmopolitan. The world's top musicians regularly take the stage indoors at The Chelsea or outdoors by the Boulevard Pool. Performances are even broadcast live to passersby (those poor suckers who couldn't get tickets) on the resort's 65-foot-tall LED marquee. The funky lounge Book & Stage regularly hosts DJs and musicians too.Addicts are always looking to feed their habit, and great food is better than any drug. Helmed by culinary stars, The Cosmopolitan's restaurants will lure you in and -- even after you've eaten beyond your fill -- have you begging for more.STK is a flirty take on a steakhouse by chef Stephen Hopcraft, and Scarpetta serves a simply delicious Italian menu by chef Scott Canant in a rustic kitchen atmosphere. Jaleo by internationally acclaimed chef José Andrés and the Mediterranean-themed Estiatorio Milos by restaurateur Costas Spiliadis are two more divine dining temptations. Plus, chef David Myers' modern French brasserie Comme Ça is très bien!Want something simpler? Holsteins knows how to grill up great gourmet burgers, and the Wicked Spoon buffet puts out a spread that outshines most fine restaurants. There's even a secret pizza window where you can grab a New York-style slice and a Coke on the run.It might surprise you to learn that The Cosmopolitan offers an amazing shopping experience. From AllSaints Spitalfields and Stitched to the CRSVR Sneaker Boutique, there are stores in this high-rise hotel that you won't find anywhere else in Vegas.Also be sure to stop by P3 Studio. This glass-walled space features contemporary artists from around the world who create interactive artwork as part of a residency program.And last but not least, divine forms of pampering can be enjoyed at the mystical Sahra Spa & Hammam. Before you even ask, let us tell you that a hammam is a Turkish steam bath. And once you've been inside one, you'll be jonesing to go again.Actually, that's exactly our point about The Cosmopolitan. With so many trendy ways to drink and party, as well as to be entertained, indulge your palate and more, this is the place to be in Vegas...and once you go, it's habit-forming. You'll want to spend more time there. So don't fight it. Give in.

Awesome Hotel But...
PostedMay 1, 2013
The Cosmo was a great place; beautiful hotel and was very centrally located. We only had two complaints about being there: (1) housekeeping didn't get to our room until very late in the day and (2) the pools (while they are very cool) were way too small. Hotel guests had to fight for lounge chairs on the patios b/c by 10am all were "taken". Day beds and cabanas were OUTRAGEOUSLY priced. ($1000-$1250 for a daybed) Not a fun time trying to find a place to lounge around the pool. I will stay someplace else just to avoid this on my next trip to Vegas.

Shining in the spotlight of the Las Vegas Strip, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino boasts gourmet restaurants, world-class shopping and dazzling entertainment that has hotel-casino patrons cheering for an encore.Like the plot of a motion picture, this classic Las Vegas casino -- where Elvis and Priscilla Presley were married -- once rose from the dead: It was imploded in 1998 and then rebuilt from the ground up. As for its most recent dazzling special effect, the Aladdin lifted the curtain to Hollywood in Sin City when it was reborn as Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Since Planet Hollywood's arrival, the property has made a metamorphosis from its lackluster Arabian-theme into a high-tech, retro-chic attraction unlike any other Strip property.Though infused with a taste of Hollywood culture, the vibe at Planet Hollywood is intended to be welcoming and unpretentious. Who knows, you might even find yourself sitting down to play blackjack next to Jack Black.The hotel's movie theme is played out in the rooms through film memorabilia displayed in custom-designed cabinetry. The glamorous 12,800-square-foot lobby at Planet Hollywood has eight chandeliers, each comprised of 66,000 individually hand-strung crystals. Black granite floors, textured glass walls and large columns beckon guests to the check-in desk, where bands of LED lights continuously change color.The 100,000-square-foot casino appears to be in constant motion with glowing rectangular light fixtures, which change colors from red to blue to green to purple. Tall pillars with either geometric patterns or stripes reach from the floor to the ceiling, and neon LED lights brighten the walls. More than 250 flat screen televisions can be found topping slot machines, while 87 table games await those ready to try their luck. Additional gaming options, include a race and sports book and a poker room.For a bite to eat, head to the Spice Market Buffet or choose from the large menu at the 24-hour coffee shop Planet Dailies. Upstairs on the mezzanine level, Strip House redefines the traditional steakhouse with an innovative menu in a sexy, vintage atmosphere, while Koi, a well-recognized L.A. restaurant and lounge, combines the exotic Far Eastern aura with the energy and style of Hollywood. On the casino level, the first Las Vegas outpost of Earl of Sandwich makes sandwich eating a gourmet treat and the festive cantina Yolos provides a modern tribute to Mexican culture. And Gordon Ramsay BurGR takes the traditional burger to a new level.Planet Hollywood's Strip entrances are eye-catching and easy to access. They are clearly marked with escalators or stairs leading people off the Strip and into the property. Music plays at the doorways while color-changing orbs decorate the front of the hotel. There is also a clear entrance to the attached Miracle Mile Shops, which is owned separately from the hotel. The mammoth mall has more than 140 stores and dozen restaurants -- like Urban Outfitters, Build-A-Bear Workshop, GAP Body, BCBG Max Azaria and bebe -- incorporating something for every discerning taste. There are also several restaurants including the Meatball Spot, which offers an array of gourmet meatballs, authentic flatbreads, gourmet sandwiches and a salad bar with 36 different toppings.As expected in Hollywood, Planet Hollywood is packed with high-caliber entertainment. It's home to pop icon Britney Spears, who is starring in "Britney: Piece of Me." Staged in The Axis, a state-of-the-art theater, this is one of the largest indoor immersive productions in the world. "Sin City Comedy & Burlesque," a combination of world-class stand-up with sinfully sexy burlesque; "Shakin'," a production by Eric Jordan Young featuring intricate choreography and a live band; and "Celebrity Idols," a journey through treasured memories of music and movies, are in the Sin City Theatre on the Mezz level. Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and his hilarious troupe of sidekicks appear in the PH Showroom.Center stage in the casino of Planet Hollywood is a circular hot spot called the Heart Bar, a place to hang out with the beautiful people while sipping on drinks served by cocktail waitresses in black leather go-go attire. Guests can grab their 15 minutes of fame at the Extra Lounge, the new Las Vegas headquarters for the correspondents and crew of television's "Extra." Located near the hotel's front entrance, this 24-hour bar is the perfect spot to see who's coming and going.For a tranquil retreat from the flurry of shoppers, concert goers and gamblers, the Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandara offers relaxing body therapies from around the world, as well as saunas and steam rooms. With such superior treatment, you will truly feel like a movie star.

Good Hotel and Casino, Not Great
PostedFebruary 6, 2013
Back when it first opened, PH was awesome. However, today's it's just a very average hotel/casino on the strip. The rooms are VERY dated and drab. They are clean and comfortable, but not the upscale accommodations that a few of the newer properties in the area offer. I like PH, I've always been a fan. But it's getting old and will soon lose my attention if they don't renovate the rooms and casino a bit.

ARE ALL OF THE ROOMS SOMKING ROOMS

I was just there and didn't see any smoking rooms. They didn't even offer me one when I checked in. I don't think they have very many.
