The Cosmopolitan Hotel is one of Las Vegas’ newest luxury properties. While it’s geared toward a younger demographic, the hotel does an excellent job of catering to families of all sizes and age ranges.
The hotel’s 2,995 accommodations range from mild to wild, with a healthily varied array of styles, ranging from basic City Rooms to Wrap-Around Terrace Suites, to multi-level Lanai Suites, to massive West End Penthouses and even private Bungalows. The City Room comes with two queen beds and a large, luxurious bathroom with marble floors. For families, we recommend the Terrace Studio Two Queen Beds, which comes with two queen beds, 620 square feet of space, a 110-square-foot private terrace and the same large, luxurious bathroom as the City Room. It also comes with a kitchenette, mini-bar and flat-screen TV’s. Other rooms include full kitchens, multiple bed rooms, bubbler tubs, private terrace Jacuzzi’s, projection TV’s and more.
Onsite dining packs quite a punch, with 13 restaurants for guests to choose from. Here, too, you’ll find a wide variety of options, including sophisticated modern Italian cuisine at Scarpetta, delectable sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill, and a unique fusion of classic Chinese and Mexican cuisine (that the kids will love!) at China Poblano.
The hotel offers families over 5,000 square feet of pool and deck space, as well as a complete fitness center, a third-floor kid-friendly sitting area — complete with family-style cuisine, board games and arcade games. And if that’s not enough, the Bellagio fountains are right next door, and The Cosmopolitan Hotel is a short walk to the Excalibur Hotel and Casino’s arcade, the Manhattan Express Roller Coaster and boardwalk-style arcade at New York New York, and more.

TRAVELERS BEWARE - HOTEL ROOM SECURITY
Two small unintimidating women knocked on the hotel room door before dinner, they said they stayed in the room the night prior and left something, could they come in to get. They appear nice and sincere. After being told to check with security. They knocked several more times stating it was really important. They were not rude, drunk or angry but very persistent. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. The next day, I met someone who said the same thing happened to his friend with two small women but she could see out of peephole two large men hiding on the side waiting. Do not open your door. CALL SECURITY. Security is very responsive and helpful.
I paid for 6 rooms all together and we have had several problems in two of the rooms. Upon checking in, the rooms were not ready except for my own. We had to wait for about an hour before our rooms could be ready. We arrived at approximately 230 pm and its okay at that point. When our rooms started to be ready, I specifically asked for different names for each of the reservation which at first went smoothly. However, when the rooms were finally revealed one by one, Room 58 24 was assigned to Jocelyn Padron and Room 3424 to Johnelle Chavez. The names of the respective people for each room was even printed by the front desk person on the little room card container. Everything was going on smoothly when on Tuesday, August 13th, while Johnelle from room 3424 was taking a shower, the housekeeping walked in on her even though the do not disturb sign was hanged on the door knob. The same thing happened also the next day Wednesday when Johnelle's companion was taking a shower, housekeeping walked in again even though the do not disturb sign was once again hanged on the knob. Furthermore, on two occasions, the same room 3424 didn't have their room cleaned and had to call housekeeping after four o'clock to have the room clean. This in my opinion is totally unsatisfactory and not the standard from Cosmopolitan that I am used to. We have been staying in this hotel every August for the past four years to attend the Annual AML Conference and this is the worst thing that ever happened to our accommodations. Then in the wee morning of August 14 at about 2:30 a.m. I received a phone call from Ms. Johnelle Chavez because the front desk refused to give her a key (she locked her keys in the room) because the front desk is saying that room 3424 belongs to Jocelyn Padron when during check-in 5824 was specifically assigned to Jocelyn Padron and 3424 to Johnelle Chavez. I have to call front desk at 230 a.m. to verify that Johnelle indeed belonged to Room 3424 and NOT Jocelyn. This was a total inconvenience and a total and utter mess. Not only did the front desk person that checked us in totally screwed up the process, I ended up being disturbed from my rest. Front Desk staff and Housekeeping totally messed up this stay.
