So you are probably wondering what is “The Fanatic’s Hot List”. Well, “The Fanatic’s Hot List” is going to be a weekly blog post about my picks for the top hotels from around the world. Each hotel that pick for my weekly post will come from a list that I created of all the hotels that I thought were amazing. In each weekly post, I will discuss five different things about that hotel that I love. Those five things are the lobby, the dining options, the guest rooms, the pool, and surrounding area of the hotel location. I may discuss other things as well but that will be extra. This is something new that I am really excited about doing and I hope you will be excited as well.
This week’s hotel from the top of my list is the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
- Built in 2010
- 52 floors, 2800 Rooms, 242 suites
- 53 meeting rooms, 175,365 sq m of total meeting space
- 3 Pools
- 17 restaurants (Not Including Coffee shops and bakeries )
- Member of Autograph Collection by Marriott
From looking at many photos of this hotel what amazes me are the pillars in the lobby with the screens that display different designs, it give it the appearance of a different lobby every time you walk through it. The hotel lobby has a mirror ceiling so it makes the lobby more of an illusion. If you are checking in to stay at this masterpiece of a hotel then you will see the check-in desks to be different than any other hotel with its old style redwood tables, red curtained background and of course the funky chandeliers.
All of the dining options at the composition are unique and delicious but there are so many different options when choosing where to eat so I am simply going to list the description of each of the restaurants as it is showed on the hotel’s website.
Whether you’re in the mood for Chinese food or Mexican fare, CHINA POBLANO NOODLES & TACOS by José Andres will satisfy your lunchtime craving. Choose from a variety of dim sum, noodle dishes or tacos, including the Silencio, featuring duck tongue and fresh lychee.
Enjoy authentic Greek fare at ESTIATORIO MILOS with a 3-course prix-fixe lunch—served within 45 minutes—featuring your choice of appetizer, main course, and dessert. Appetizer selections include charcoal-broiled Mediterranean octopus, fresh Maryland lump crab cake and a Greek mezze plate, while main course options include Shetland Island organic salmon, grain-fed chicken breast skewer and shrimp saganaki.
Egg sandwiches aren’t just for breakfast anymore. At EGGSLUT’s walk-up counter, get your hands on a classic bacon, egg & cheese sandwich, or go for daring options like The Gaucho Sandwich, which features seared wagyu tri-tip steak, chimichurri, red onions and seasoned arugula topped with an over-medium egg in a warm brioche bun.
At THE HENRY, you can choose from classic American fare like salads, soups, sandwiches, and burgers, or try such specialties as pan-seared Scottish salmon, served with creamy whipped potatoes, lemon butter and seasonal vegetables.
Looking for the best burger in Las Vegas? Look no further than HOLSTEINS SHAKES AND BUNS, where housemade toppings, buns and condiments accompany specialty burgers like The Gold Standard, a dry-aged beef sirloin burger with smoked bacon, aged goat cheddar cheese, tomato confit, baby arugula, and garlic-chive aioli.
Lunch like a Spaniard at JALEO BY JOSÉ ANDRES. For only $25, choose three tapas selections, such as Tichi’s gazpacho (chilled Spanish soup), croquetas de pollo (chicken fritters) or gambas al ajillo (garlic-sautéed shrimp). Add the daily featured paella for only $7 more.
At MOMOFUKU, entertain your appetite above the Las Vegas Strip with signature dishes from David Chang, including prime rib, steamed buns, noodles, salads, and small plates for sharing.
OVERLOOK GRILL’s casual, indoor-outdoor setting adjacent to Boulevard Pool is perfect for kicking back and enjoying lunch or breakfast selections all day, including signature dishes like the Overlook Omelet, OG Burger or Signature Fish Tacos.
WICKED SPOON is not your typical Las Vegas buffet. With creative, well-crafted original selections, this is an all-you-can-eat brunch spot that will blow your culinary mind, made even better when you add bottomless beverages.
There are so many different types of guest rooms to choose from that you can go crazy, from the normal city room to the magnificent Chelsea penthouse every room is spectacular. Each type of guest room has its own unique design even down to the carpet .
List of different types of guestrooms.
- City rooms- Basic rooms with no balconies but large windows with views of the rear of the hotel.
- Terrace rooms- Various room layouts, however, all have balconies.
- Premium View rooms- Terrace rooms with balconies with views of the Las Vegas strip.
The pools at the Cosmopolitan are truly something different with three different styled pools. Starting with the BOULEVARD POOL which overlooks the Las Vegas strip it offers uninterrupted views of the strip that you can get at any other hotel pool in Las Vegas. This pool has multiple levels for you to relax and don’t worry about moving your lounge chair to stay in the sun, the pool is located in an area will you will have sun all day long! with different options of live music or events, this pool is the place to be.
The second pool is THE CHELSEA POOL. This pool is a quite lush area where you can kick back and relax. In this area, you won’t even notice that you are in Las Vegas with the soothing ambient sounds.
The Third pool at this hotel is MARQUEE DAY CLUB POOL. This pool is an adult only beach club style pool during the day and becomes an extension of the Marquee Nightclub at night. You can get your party on at this pool!
All the pools have special Cabanas that match the pools theme. You can rent a cabana for the day so you can enjoy the luxury of the pool area.
The Surrounding area of this hotel is the Las Vegas strip! You are in the heart of it all, the shows, restaurants, shopping, attractions and of course all of the different casinos. You can get overwhelmed when looking at a map of the area, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the strip then take a short drive to downtown Las Vegas to experience the light show at Fremont Street. If you want to drive about an hour of so you can take a tour of the Hoover Dam which is in itself a sight to see. There is so much to do in Las Vegas that I guarantee you won’t get bored.
Remember what happens in vegas stays in vegas!
