I've had roughly 10 visits to Vegas. Discovered it at age 19 (32 now). Took my girlfriend to Vegas for her first time next time proposed to her in Vegas. Finally we were married at the Bellagio in August 2009.
Vegas is my playground. We do it all...clubs, bars, restaurants, shows, off strip attractions and everything in between.
Having one of my best friends and his wife live there and work at the airport is a bonus...we always have a ride!

Ratings & Reviews
Despite its flaws and varied reviews. Cosmopolitan offers a level of excitement that surpasses many other places on the strip. Let's start with the bad news. Yes, there are some technical flaws with the hotel service. We've experienced small technical issues with the television controlling the whole room, which in concept is awesome, but sometimes can be glitchy. Now, the good stuff...EVERYTHING ELSE! Cosmo has the design, the restaurants, the clubs, the pools...everything you need for a true Vegas experience. There is nothing like standing on the balcony overlooking the strip at night. It is worth every dollar spent. Simply because you can't get that kind of privacy while having such a premium view. Every time we visit, we always bring new friends and the look of awe on their faces when we first walk into the room, then out onto the balcony is priceless. Must do: 1. Try Holsteins for a burger lunch. 2. Hit up the Bamboo pool. It's generally has a smaller crowd as opposed to the Blvd pool which can get packed early. 3. If you're a guest, you get into Marquee for free. Go early and check out the vibe. Leave when it starts getting crazy. 4. Find Secret Pizza. 5. Get a Fire Breathing Dragon at the second level Chandelier Bar 6. Talk to bartender Jennie at Book & Stage - she makes some wicked drinks. 7. Get a Don Johnson at Bond 8. Eat breakfast at the Overlook Cafe by the BLVD pool, get the Eggs Benedict. 9. Ask for a room in the East tower, facing north above the 25th floor. Prime Bellagio fountain view.
Young, hip, perfect placement on the map. This place is awesome. The best way to describe it is the accessability. It's not over-the-top expensive. It's simple and down-to-earth. The Miracle Mile shops have just about everything you need and a great mix of high-end boutiques and standard clothing shops. While the pool isn't the best on the strip, it's a nice place to start the day. I highly recommend Earl of Sandwich and Planet Dailies. My wife and I spent 10 days here for our honeymoon (after getting married at the Bellagio). We got to know the staff really well and they were very accommodating.
