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. 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.

Modern Hotel with a Classy Vibe
PostedApril 9, 2013
We absolutely loved the Cosmo. It was very modern without having "too young" and an out of control crowd. We upgraded our room from City Room to the Fountain View Terrace Suite and the view was amazing. We over looked the Bellagio Fountains and spent many afternoons out there relaxing before going back out to the strip. The house keeping staff was incredible and our room was perfect every day. The Identity Card Staff, Dealers, Front Desk, The Bartenders, Bell Desk were all amazing too. The waitresses down in the casino definitely had the quickest service out of all the casinos that we visited. This will definitely be our go-to hotel. We did not visit the Pool, the Marquee pool was just not our scene - though it looked like it could be a great time, for those interested!
The only thing I would recommend to the hotel is having 2 Taxi Lines during peak hours of the pool. One for hotel guests and one for non-guests. On Saturday we were trying to make dinner reservations, that were a bit to far to walk - especially being all dressed up. Many others were there trying to do the same and also make it to the airport, however, we had to wait in line for about 20 minutes with many drunk pool party goers, and it was a little frustrating....

"I'll be baack!"We know...you're wondering what do the "Terminator" movies and an Italian-themed luxury resort in Vegas have to do with each other? OK, not a lot. But that famous line, which is uttered in some form in all of the franchise's films, happens to be the same one said by guests (without Arnold Schwarzenegger's gruff Austrian accent) upon leaving The Venetian.So consider yourself warned: If you spend your Vegas vacation here, you'll be spoiled for all other hotels. You'll want to come back to The Venetian -- time and time again. It's just that great.Located a tad north of the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, directly across from The Mirage, this megaresort is a colossally cool creation in modern day Vegas. Opened in 1999, it's situated where the Sands Hotel of Rat Pack lore once stood.Now this is obvious so it probably goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway -- The Venetian is inspired by the art and architectural beauty of Venice. There are faithfully re-created landmarks from Italy's most romantic city everywhere. You'll spot the Campanile Tower, St. Mark's Square, the Rialto Bridge and Doge's Palace. Arched bridges, piazzas and cobblestone pathways are incorporated throughout the property. And just wait until you see the Renaissance-style ceiling in the lobby...you might as well cross Venice off your bucket list because this is almost as awesome.The Venetian, which sits next to The Palazzo (its sister resort), consists of two towers -- the 36-story Venetian Tower and the 12-story Venezia Tower. Both of them are filled with suites (and only suites...so get ready to be unbelievably comfortable). The smallest one measures about 650 square feet and features Italian marble floors, Roman tubs with separate showers, Egyptian cotton sheets, a sunken living area and other palatial amenities.Unfortunately, many things will entice you to leave your suite at The Venetian (otherwise, you would never come out). You can take in Broadway-caliber entertainment like the smash hit "Rock of Ages." The hotel is also home to "Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show," featuring four talented vocalists from Australia who sing Motown tunes. Plus, a variety of headliners and comedians -- like the ladies of the "Lipshtick" comedy series -- regularly appear here.The Venetian brings a cornucopia of dining choices to you as well. Indulge in culinary creations (most of which you won't be able pronounce) at its celebrity chef-helmed restaurants. There's the fresh seafood of AquaKnox by Tom Moloney, the Italian delights of B & B Ristorante by Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, the meaty fare of Delmonico Steakhouse by Emeril Lagasse, the contemporary French dishes of db Brasserie by Daniel Boulud and the bistro classics of Bouchon by Thomas Keller (who also operates the Bouchon Bakery at two locations in the resort).Buddy Valastro, the star of the reality show "Cake Boss," offers family favorites, like Sunday Gravy and Steak Pizzaiola, in his first-ever restaurant Buddy V's. Adjacent to it is Carlo's Bakery, where you can get cannolis, Buddy's lobster tail pastries and, of course, his famous cakes.Feast on more casual offerings at the patio-style Trattoria Reggiano, Wolfgang Puck's Postrio and the Old Mexico-themed Taqueria Cañonita. B&B Burger & Beer, another venue by Batali and Bastianich, features hamburgers with super delicious shakes. Select from breakfast items, seafood, chicken, salads, sandwiches and more than 20 fabulous desserts at the Grand Lux Café. Or try the Public House, where brews and spirits of all kinds are paired with a gourmet pub menu. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is the latest eatery to open at The Venetian. It serves delicious fried chicken and other beloved Southern staples. Yardbird also has a truly unique cocktail menu -- thanks to a special ice room where mixologists harvest hand-cut, flavored blocks, sculpt them into crazy shapes and then put them in the drinks. (You won't believe the cube...or rather sphere...that comes in the Yardbird Old Fashioned!)Speaking of drinking, nightlife options abound at The Venetian. There's The Bourbon Room, inspired by the legendary Sunset Strip club in the musical "Rock of Ages." Partiers can get shots of bourbon while dancing to feel-good tunes from the '80s. V Bar is a chic, intimate spot where you can sip on a martini while relaxing in a double-sided leather chaise lounge. For a more pulsating scene, head to TAO Nightclub, which boasts gorgeous go-go dancers, some of the world's leading DJs and a 40-foot-long outdoor terrace with stunning views of the Strip. Last but not least is the rollicking Rockhouse, which boasts tire swings for the bartenders, birdcages for dancing girls and a mechanical bull. For a nightlife experience during the day, check out TAO Beach, where you can sunbathe on beautiful Asian-inspired daybeds or in lavish cabanas. If you'd prefer to catch some rays without being immersed in the pool party scene, The Venetian also has a sprawling pool deck with access to seven outdoor swimming pools, four hot tubs and 41 cabanas. And Canyon Ranch SpaClub is a quiet oasis where you can be pampered from a menu of rejuvenating treatments that includes massages, mud masks, aromatherapy experiences, facials, body scrubs and more.Many other things will compete for your attention at The Venetian too. Test your luck on the opulent casino floor, in the elegant 59-table poker room or at the race and sports book operated by CG Technology. You can stroll inside and outside along canals teeming with authentic gondolas steered by singing gondoliers. Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, a worldwide attraction featuring celebrity wax figures, is situated at the front of the resort. And the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo is a collection of approximately 160 high-end shops (including Barneys) that flaunts the hottest names in the fashion world.On a side note, The Venetian ideal if you're a business traveler because it's connected to the Sands Expo and Convention Center. And, in addition to all the things that already make this resort remarkable, it's eco-friendly. So, if you want to ease your conscience by sleeping in a place that takes sustainability seriously, The Venetian -- with solar panels, a reclaimed water system and many other green initiatives -- is it.Stay at the Venetian and you'll get a suite, more amenities under one roof than you can fathom and a great location on the Strip (should you ever leave the premises). You'll have an all-around amazing time in Vegas at The Venetian. And we know -- because like an old record, everyone who stays here says it -- you'll be back!
 

Do you have a luggage check place?

In otherwards do you have a place to hold luggage untill it is check in time? We get there around noon or so & we can't check into our room untill 3pm?

Thank you.
Yes, their bell desk was great. It is a free service, however, we chose to tip $1 per bag.... they are responsible for watching over your things, so you want them in a good mood!
The luggage check is right by the door on the same end as the check-in desks!

Is car parking available

Free Parking is available underneath the hotel and the parking garage was very easy to access. It also had very easy access to and from the hotel itself.
