Cosmopolitan odmaralište u Las Vegas je avanturistička i jedinstvena promjena tempa na Stripu. Stupci na video ekranu koji prikazuju originalnu digitalnu umjetnost pozdravljaju posjetitelje u elegantnom predvorju pri ulasku. Preko igraonice gosti mogu pijuckati posebne koktele na molekularnoj bazi u trospratnom lusteru napravljenom od 2 miliona kristala pod odgovarajućim nazivom Luster. Ostala područja za opuštanje uz piće uključuju BOND, sa nizom LED umjetnosti i house muzike te klubom, barom i restoranom Rose. Rabbit. Laži. Gosti mogu izabrati večeru u Roseu. Lie.'s biblioteku, gledajte emisiju u području Vegas Nocturne ili ostanite u kasnonoćnom klubu.

Na putu do 13 prepoznatljivih restorana Cosmo, gosti će prošetati oko 8 stopa visokih skulptura pumpi na štiklu, ogromnih pasa i drugih velikih samostalnih umjetničkih postavki.

Recepcija, igraonice i barovi nalaze se u prizemlju, a trgovina na drugom katu i restorani na trećem katu. Bazeni i banje nalaze se na četvrtom i petom spratu.

Dvije kule sadrže 2.995 soba, većina s velikim izlaznim terasama s kojih se pruža dramatičan pogled. Kule su prvobitno bile zamišljene kao stambene zgrade i nude stambeni prostor s velikim kaučem, klupskom stolicom i radnim stolom, čajnu kuhinju sa sudoperom, hladnjakom, mikrovalnom pećnicom i štednjakom te mramornu kupaonicu s dvostrukim umivaonikom, ormarom za vodu, japanskim kada za natapanje i veliki tuš.

Bazen Boulevard gleda na Strip sa pogledom sa svih strana, a Day Club Pool nudi dnevne zabave i prelazi u produžetak bazena Marquee Club po noći. Sahra Spa i Hamman, od kamena i kamena, površine 43.000 kvadratnih metara, sadrže sobe za tretmane i spa apartmane, parne sobe, bazene, saune i turski hamam.

Raznovrsni restorani u odmaralištu zadovoljit će svaki budžet i želju, a prostori se kreću od opuštenih hamburgerija Holsteins u trendi STK steakhouse. STK Vegas je elegantan i moderan sa polukružnim kabinama koje pružaju pogled na popularnu publiku u baru. Meni na čelu Vrhunski kuhar takmičar Stephen Hopcraft, sadrži male, srednje i velike odreske te veliki izbor predjela, salata i ribe. Metalni hleb za tiganj mora se naručiti.

Ljubitelji sušija osjećat će se kao kod kuće u japansko-američkom suši baru i roštilju Blue Ribbon sa sušijem, sashimijem, prženom piletinom, tempurom, odrescima i raznim jelima od riže.

Moderni Italijan slavnog kuhara Scotta Conanta Scarpetta nudi rustikalna jela u vrhunskoj atmosferi.

Scarpetta nudi gostima različita mjesta za ručavanje, romantične enklave uz dugu tanku šipku, kružne prostrane drvene kabine u glavnoj blagovaonici i pogled na Bellagio fontanu i Strip do poda do prozora.

Conant nije jedini poznati kuhar s restoranom u restoranu The Cosmopolitan, kuhar Jose Andres ima tri - Jaleo, Kina Poblano i é. Jaleo poslužuje najbolje tapas u Vegasu, nudeći veliki izbor tradicionalne i inovativne španske kuhinje.

Za one koji žele probati bife u Vegasu, Wicked Spoon nudi veliki izbor za doručak i večeru.

Iako se odmaralište nalazi na malom (za Grad greha) 8,6 jutara između Bellagioa i centra grada, Cosmopolitan maksimalno koristi svoj prostor kombinacijom vizualnih čuda, elegantnih soba, restorana s poznatim kuharima, modernog dizajna i ultra-modernog dizajna noćni klub.

10 najčišćih i najsigurnijih hotela u Las Vegasu danas

Jedina razlika je u definiciji samog "čistog". U doba prije COVID-19, izraz se odnosio na besprijekorne podove, svježu posteljinu i sjajna kupatila. Sada se to odnosi i na to koliko je prostorija čista od virusnih uzročnika koji bi inače mogli počivati ​​u zraku i ležati na površinama. Zato je ključno znati o hotelima koji slijede sigurnosne mjere COVID-19, kao što su socijalno distanciranje i efikasna praksa dezinfekcije u svim prostorijama.

No, iako su se vremena prilično brzo promijenila, predanost Las Vegasa pružanju izuzetnog iskustva na odmoru ostala je ista. Zato i dalje možete lako pronaći hotele koji vam pružaju zabavan i siguran odmor tokom COVID-19. Morate znati gdje ih tražiti.

Evo 10 najčišćih smještaja u Las Vegasu koji će vam pomoći u procesu sigurnog uživanja na odmoru. Od Westgate's Las Vegas hotela do Cosmopolitana u Las Vegasu, ova mjesta vam omogućuju da uživate u svom putovanju bez rizika za svoju dobrobit.


Tajna pizza u hotelu Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Moja potraga za dobrom hranom u Las Vegasu obično me tjera da jedem previše, previše pijem i slušam što više ljudi dok dijele omiljena mjesta na traci. Nedavno je E.C. Gladstone, pisac iz Las Vegasa s kojim sam previše jeo, svratio u hotel Cosmopolitan i probao njihovo „tajno mjesto za pizzu“. Zatim mi je pričao o mjestu pa sam odlučio podijeliti nekoliko njegovih misli s vama.

Kao pravi momak sa Istočne obale, on ima malo čipa na ramenu u vezi s pizzom i s pravom me je usmjerio u pravom smjeru što se tiče dobre pite pa sam se priklonio njegovom mišljenju o najnovijem mjestu u Las Vegasu za parče pizze.

Evo šta je Eric Gladstone rekao o pizzi u Cosmopolitanu u Las Vegasu:

Načelnici iza pulta su nekoliko njujorških momaka po imenu Nico i Christo. Ali to je otprilike jedino uvezeno. Tijesto za pizzu svakodnevno se priprema svježe u zgradi sa brašnom sa visokim sadržajem glutena. Tako je i sa začinjenom talijanskom kobasicom, mesnim okruglicama od telećeg svinjskog mesa, prethodno prodinstanim lukom i gljivama-a sir se svakodnevno riba svjež (tu su i veliki uvozni feferoni i zelena paprika, pahuljice papra i parmezan , prirodno).

S osnovnom cijenom od 3,00 USD za običan komad sira od rajčice i 0,50 centi za svaki preljev, ovo je jedna od najboljih ponuda na Vegas Stripu. A kad vam udari u usta, složit ćete se da je to i jedan od najboljih zalogaja - sklopiva hrskava, žvakana kora sa malo ugljika, svijetlim okusom rajčice i svježim okusima sira. Istina, u New Yorku bi se to moglo smatrati samo dobrim susjedskim zajedništvom. Ali u Vegasu nisam siguran da igdje postoji bolji komad. Imaju i bijelu pizzu - samo ricottu, mozzarellu i začinsko bilje - koja postaje sve uzvišenija sa svakim zalogajem.

Takođe možete naručiti cijelu pitu od 16 inča za 17 USD. Što je, na Stripu, zaista luda pogodba. I, jesam li spomenuo, Pabst Blue Ribbon i Dogfish I.P.A. na dohvat ruke za 3,50 USD. Ozbiljno.

Ulaz je malo teško pronaći, ali raspitajte se oko hotela Cosmopolitan i moći ćete ga locirati među nevjerojatnim izborima hrane. Shvatite da je ovo skriveni dragulj, bez napora u novom odmaralištu koje izgleda ima sve što bi vam moglo zatrebati. Nema znaka, nema imena, ali postoji mašina Galaga i nadam se da će moje ime uskoro biti na vrhunskom ekranu.

Planirate putovanje? Najbolji način za pronalaženje dogovora je odgovarajući vodič kroz Las Vegas. Dobijte informacije o cijenama, ulaznicama, rezervacijama i najboljim načinima da uporedite koliko će to koštati u Las Vegasu.


14 stvari koje biste trebali znati prije nego što započnete djevojački vikend u Vegasu

1. Cijena koju vidite nikada nije stvarna cijena. Wi -Fi se dodatno naplaćuje, korištenje bazena dodatno se naplaćuje, a slamka s vodom košta dodatno. U Vegasu postoji više skrivenih pristojbi nego u ostatku svijeta zajedno. Pogledajte šta su oni i unesite ih u obzir kada govorite djevojkama koliko će sve koštati. Nema ništa gore od mrzovoljne djeveruše koja je upravo saznala da duguje 200 dolara više nego što je mislila.

2. Sve ima dugačak red. Ali Vegas zna kako se prave linije i kreću se pristojno brzo. Ipak, pripremite se za čekanje u bazenu, čekanje za užinu, čekanje za ulazak u klub itd.

3. U Vegasu postoji čitav žanr tipova koji je "ulični roming dvadesetogodišnjaka za regrutovanje klubova". Ovi dečki će vam prići & mdash grupi lijepih dama & mdash i pozvati vas na zabavu uz bazen. Pitajte postoji li minimum pića ili nešto drugo što morate platiti. Oni vas besplatno uvode, ali ponekad to i nije velika stvar.

4. Nemojte čak ni razmisli o donošenju bilo čega na zabavu u bazenu osim kupaćeg kostima, telefona i novca. DJ -evske zabave na bazenu su lude, ludo zabavno ako volite ići na klubove u bazen u 11 sati. No, ima nekoliko ulovki: (1) morat ćete čekati u dugom redu da biste ušli, (2) ni u jednom trenutku Rečeno je da oglašavaju da ne možete unijeti određene stvari, i (3) kada uđete, sigurnost će u osnovi baciti sve što posjedujete osim kupaćeg kostima, novca i telefona. Pretpostavljam da je to zato što ne žele da unosite drogu i alkohol. Morao sam baciti bocu Advila, vode, kapi za oči, štapića i šipku sa granolom. Kad smo pokušali baciti lijekove na recept moga prijatelja, mi smo otišli.

5. Neka vam dani budu hladni. Vaše noći će biti van lanca. Ne planirajte mnogo za dane. Niko ne želi da bude prisiljen da pogađa imena vaše buduće djece sa čudovišnim mamurlukom.

6. Ljekarne u Vegasu su pune prodavaonice pića. Udari ih. Walgreens nosi doslovne vrčeve Patrona, miksere, limete, čaše i 17 vrećica sirastih kokica za koje znate da će vam trebati u 3 sata ujutro. Zašto svi Walgreens nisu tako sjajni?

7. Na traci postoji mjesto koje se zove Debeli utorak. Prodaju ogromne plastične čaše za piće sa šećernom bombom koje ćete vidjeti kako ljudi nose svuda. Zapamtite lokaciju ovog mjesta u hitnim slučajevima.

8. Ako ćete se družiti kraj bazena, vrijedi se razvaliti po lijepom hotelu. Možete otići do klupskih bazena u drugim hotelima, ali morat ćete čekati u dugom redu, a samo je sranje što ne možete posrnuti ravno u svoju sobu nakon dana provedenog na suncu i piću. Ako želite pristup lijepom bazenu, odsjednite u hotelu s lijepim bazenom.

9. Ako vam nije stalo do bazena, isplati se kupiti jeftin hotel. Sve što ćete raditi u Vegasu nalazi se u hotelu. No, osim bazena za koje ne morate čekati u redu, prilično se jednostavno možete jednostavno družiti cijeli dan u luksuznim hotelima na hrani, piću i igrama, a cijelu noć u barovima, klubovima i predstavama, a zatim vratite se svojim poliesterskim plahtama srednje cijene na nekoliko sati sna prije nego što zabava počne ponovo.

10. Ako vam je glavna svrha u Vegasu danonoćno klub, razmislite o VIP paketu. Vegas Girls Night Night nudi hrpu paketa koji, iako nisu jeftini, vrijede izbjeći potpuno čekanje u redovima. Pogotovo ako se osjećate klimavo u šiljatim štiklama i ne želite biti tužna djevojka koja sjedi na ivičnjaku jer je bole stopala.

11. Ne, ne možete hodati tamo. Vegas je najmanje prohodno mjesto na planeti. Sve izgleda kao da je blizu ("Mogu vidjeti Planet Hollywood! Hajdemo samo hodati tamo!"), A zatim, 25 minuta kasnije, još uvijek izgleda samo četiri bloka dalje.

12. A kabine su uglavnom dostupne samo u hotelima. Srećom, sve je u hotelu pa ste vjerojatno pokriveni, ali ako napustite mjesto misleći da ćete samo pozvati taksi, varate se.

13. Britney Spears je kraljica. Idi na njenu predstavu. Ti želiš. Vaši prijatelji to žele. Zahvalit ćeš mi kad stigne do "Toxic".

14. Bit ćete iscrpljeni i sve će vam na tijelu do ponedjeljka zaškripati poput drevne vrbe, ali bit će tako da vrijedi. Neki se ljudi osjećaju čudno tražeći od prijatelja da potroše novac na djevojačko putovanje, ali isplanirajte zabavne stvari i učinite da se osjećaju cijenjenima, a nitko neće zaboraviti ili požaliti vrijeme koje su pijano razgovarali s tipom u mrežastoj košulji u bazenu u toplesu koji je vodio David guetta. Yayyyy.

Ako trenutno razmišljate o odmoru u Las Vegasu, moglo bi biti korisno razmisliti o tome šta stručnjaci kažu o tome je li trenutno sigurno boraviti u hotelu, kao i o pregledu novih politika i postupaka čišćenja velikih hotelskih marki i njihovom otkazivanju. pravila kako biste mogli donijeti informirane odluke prije rezervacije.

U aprilu, Pomoćna urednica TPG -a Emily McNutt i nekoliko drugih uposlenika TPG-a otputovali su u Las Vegas na putovanje hranom sa Chase Sapphire Preferred u Vegas Uncork & rsquod. Znajući da će svi biti u istom gradu u isto vrijeme na istom događaju, odlučili su odsjesti u tri različita hotela & mdash sve u ime recenzija hotela. Kliknite ovdje za pregled Vdare i očekujte recenziju The Palazzo koja dolazi uskoro!

Budući da mi je ovo bio prvi put u Las Vegas, i & rsquod sam samo čuo za različite nekretnine i sve što imaju za ponuditi & mdash Poznat sam o Bellagiou zbog njegovih čuvenih fontana i viđenoj palači Caesars u & ldquoMamurluku, & rdquo, ali uvijek Cosmopolitan & rsquos nastao je zbog svog elegantnog stila i blistavog interijera. Dakle, kad sam saznao da ću odsjesti u objektu za vrijeme našeg boravka od četiri noći, bio sam jako uzbuđen što sam isprobao hotel i uvjerio se u sve što on nudi.

Cosmopolitan iz Las Vegasa izvana.

Prije nekoliko godina objavljeno je da će The Cosmopolitan postati dio Marriott & rsquos proširenja Autograph Collection. Kao vlasništvo Autograph Collection, članovi Marriott Rewards-a mogu zaraditi i otkupiti bodove u The Cosmu kao što bi to učinili na bilo kojoj drugoj nekretnini Marriott-a i mdash imaju definitivnu prednost ako planirate putovanje u Vegas i želite zaraditi noćenja koja ispunjavaju uvjete za elitu.

Boravio sam u sobi s jednom spavaćom sobom Terrace, koja je koštala oko 232 USD po noći, iako je u petak i subotu tokom mog boravka stopa skočila na oko 350 USD. Znajući da ćemo biti u gradu četiri noći, a posljednje dvije su bile petak i subota, iskoristio sam to Citi Prestige card & rsquos Četvrto noćenje besplatna pogodnost. Četvoronoćni boravak koštao bi me 1.416 dolara, međutim besplatna naknada za četvrto noćenje uštedjela mi je 382 dolara za subotu navečer, a umjesto toga ukupan iznos iznosio je 1.034 dolara.

Marriott Rewards ukupno zarađuje bodove za boravak.

Osim toga, boravak od četiri noći zaradio je 14.300 Marriott Rewards bodova (uključujući zlatni bonus od 2.860 bodova), koji su pripisani oko 10 dana nakon plaćanja.

U Cosmopolitan sam stigao u srijedu popodne oko 13:30. Kad sam ušao, oduševio me je broj ljudi na recepciji koji su se pokušali prijaviti.

Red za prijavu u srijedu popodne bio je prilično dug.

Srećom, jedna od prednosti statusa Marriott Gold-a je prilika da zaobiđete glavnu liniju za prijavu i odete u Autograph Lounge, prostor samo za članove Marriott Rewards-a koji se nalazi odmah sa strane od recepcije.

Po ulasku u salon, odmah me je dočekala ljubazna recepcionerka. Na raspolaganju je bio izbor osvježenja, uključujući kavu i vodu. Bilo je lijepo biti dočekan na imanju na takav način kad su pred vratima stvari bile tako kaotične. Sam proces prijavljivanja bio je zaista lak, a agentica je potvrdila da je vidjela broj Marriott Rewards priložen uz rezervaciju.

Autograph Lounge pored recepcije namijenjen je ubrzanom procesu prijavljivanja.

Moja terasa s jednom spavaćom sobom nalazila se na 29. katu. Imajte na umu da postoje dvije kule u Cosmopolitanu & Istočni toranj i Zapadni toranj. Glavni sprat Istočne kule zauzima kazino hotela & rsquos, dok je na glavnom spratu Zapadne kule zauzeto predvorje hotela & rsquos, što olakšava odlazak do sobe nakon prijave. Dodatno, hotelski i rsquos automobil područje za usluge i uslugu parkiranja nalaze se odmah ispred vrata predvorja West Tower, gdje ćete & rsquoll pronaći i područje preuzimanja Ubera.

Nakon što otvorite ulazna vrata, imat ćete prilično ravan pogled prema stražnjem dijelu sobe i balkonu. Samo lijevo je dnevni boravak, a desno kuhinja (više o tome kasnije).

Gledajući od prednjih vrata do stražnjeg dijela sobe.

Jedna spavaća soba s terasom je u velikoj mjeri prostorija u stilu pruge. Dug je i donekle uzak, ali uspijeva se osjećati vrlo prostranim.

Kuhinja se uglavnom nalazi u dnevnom boravku i dolazi s mini hladnjakom, mikrovalnom pećnicom, sudoperom i malo prostora za odlaganje.

Jedina stvar koja mi je odmah privukla pažnju pri ulasku u sobu bila je svjetlost i nedostatak svjetlosti. Bio sam toliko iznenađen koliko je malo svjetla bilo u dnevnom boravku da sam bio uvjeren da skroz prelazim preko prekidača za svjetlo & mdash had da budem laganiji. Nakon otprilike 10 minuta traženja dodatnog svjetla, čuo sam kućno osoblje vani i zamolio ih za pomoć. Čak je i kućna pomoćnica koja je ušla unutra pomoći bila zbunjena zašto je u sobi bilo tako mračno & mdash da je čak bila spremna pozvati održavanje da uđe i riješi problem.

Tamni ulaz, sa svjetlom koje dolazi iz kuhinje.

Upravo kad je htjela otići, pritisnula je prekidač za svjetlo još jednom i mala količina svjetla pojavila se sa stropa i projicirala direktno na dva umjetnička djela u dnevnoj sobi. To je bio jedini izvor svjetlosti u dnevnoj sobi pored kuhinjskog svjetla i obližnje stolne lampe. Svjetlosna situacija mogla se lako popraviti dodavanjem veće stropne svjetiljke & mdash da zabavljate grupu u svojoj sobi, bilo bi čudno ugostiti vaše goste u tako mračnom, mračnom prostoru.

Namještaj za dnevnu sobu također je bio pomalo zastario i izgledalo je da bi ga trebalo očistiti. Izbjegavao sam uopće korištenje kauča jer je izgledalo kao da ima dosta trošenja, što nisam očekivao vidjeti u hotelu poput The Cosmopolitana. Očekivao sam da ću vidjeti istrošenost, kao što je uobičajeno u svakom hotelu, samo ne toliko.

Dnevna soba sa dva novootkrivena svetla.

Srećom, hodnik između dnevne sobe i spavaće sobe imao je lijepu količinu svjetla zahvaljujući velikom lusteru u sredini sobe. U centru je bio i lijep otoman, pa sam na kraju spremio svoj kofer za relativno kratak boravak od četiri noći.

Prostor ormara pružao je prijeko potrebno svjetlo i prostor za skladištenje.

Bilo je dosta prostora za odlaganje ormara, što sam i ja iskoristio. U ormaru su bila automatska svjetla koja su pružala dovoljno svjetla da se sve vidi unutra.

Sam ormar je bio veliki.

Unutar krajnje desnih vrata ormara bio je sef i nekoliko označenih kubika. Unutar kubika nalazila se vreća za rublje, pegla, papuče i nekoliko stabala cipela. Bilo je lijepo imati ove etikete hotela označene i organizirane na jednom prikladnom mjestu.

Unutra ćete pronaći svoje osnovne hotelske pogodnosti i veliku dasku za peglanje.

Nakon što prođete kroz ulazna vrata i prođete kroz dnevnu sobu i hodnik, pronaći ćete spavaću sobu. Sam krevet bio je lijep i bračni krevet, što se pokazalo izuzetno udobnim. Otkrio sam da u spavaćoj sobi ima dovoljno svjetla, uglavnom zbog prirodnog svjetla balkona, što je lijepa promjena u dnevnoj sobi.

Veliki krevet bio je zaista lijep.

Postoje klizna vrata koja odvajaju spavaću sobu od ostatka sobe. Zaista je glatka i ima svoju bravu & mdash. Ista vrsta vrata takođe odvaja toaletni prostor kupatila od ostatka sobe.

Sama spavaća soba je prilično prostrana i definitivno ima dovoljno prostora za kretanje oko kreveta. Mislim da su stakleni prozor i otvoreni prostor u kupaonici zaista pomogli da soba izgleda veća nego što jeste.

Pogled prema (mračnoj) dnevnoj sobi s balkonskog prostora & mdash i staklena vrata gledaju u tuš.

Situacija u kupatilu bila je pomalo čudna zbog sobnog i otvorenog pogleda na japansku kadu. Kadica i tuš vode paralelno sa spavaćom sobom, a kada ima otvoren pristup spavaćoj sobi i nema stakla, nema stakla, samo sjenilo koje možete nacrtati. Prozor od poda do plafona na drugoj strani televizora, koji se slaže sa tušem, je staklo, međutim, tu je i nijansa koju možete nacrtati za dodatnu privatnost.

Boravio sam u sobi sam pa mi ovo zaista nije bio problem. Međutim, da sam boravio s grupom, mogao sam vidjeti kako bi višestruka gledišta koja se otvaraju prema kadi i tuš kabini mogla biti problematična.

Ne postoji prozor koji odvaja spavaću sobu od kade.

Kao što je ranije spomenuto, soba ima izlaz na balkon koji se nalazi nasuprot vrata spavaće sobe i ima klizna staklena vrata.

Pogled prema balkonu.

Vani, postoji jedna stolica i otoman, što je bilo dobro za jednog putnika, ali za grupu, pretpostavljam da bi bilo prilično gužve.

Na balkonu se nalaze jedna stolica i otoman.

Nisam imao sobu sa pogledom na fontanu (onu koja gleda direktno preko fontane Bellagio), već je moja soba gledala suprotno. Ako ste upoznati sa Strip -om, moj pogled je gledao prema New Yorku, New York Hotel & Casino -u i MGM Grand -u. To nije bio loš pogled i ostao je prilično tih svake noći kad sam bio tamo čak i s jednim od hotelskih bazena nekoliko spratova ispod mog balkona.

Pogled iz moje sobe, okrenut prema jugu.

The Bathroom

Kupatilo je definitivno vrhunac sobe & mdash i to možete reći odmah po ulasku. Sve izgleda čisto i bijeli ručnici prate bijele ladice i sudopere, dok je osvjetljenje vrlo svijetlo i svježe.

Kupatilo je bilo vrhunac sobe.

Njegovo i njeno sujetno područje bilo bi mi od velike pomoći da putujem s više ljudi. Unutar ladica nalazile su se sve osnovne kupaonske potrepštine koje bi svakome trebale-mdash Q-tip, pamučne loptice i sušilo za kosu među ostalim sadržajima.

Toaletni prostor u kupatilu.

Cijelo kupatilo i tuš kabina bili su opskrbljeni C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries proizvodi & mdash sve od tekućine za ispiranje usta do losiona za tijelo i sapuna za lice. Mirisi su se slagali i svi su bili vrlo osvježavajući miris lavande i nane.

C.O. Bigelow Apotekarski proizvodi postavljeni su po cijelom kupaonskom prostoru.

Desno od toaletnog prostora bio je toalet, koji je imao svoja vrata, odlična za privatnost u prostoriji kojoj nedostaju opće karakteristike privatnosti. Unutra je toaletna soba bila vrlo prostrana, međutim tapete su bile vrtoglave i ako pogledate izbliza, sadrže uzorke silueta žena okrenutih jedna prema drugoj. Zanimljiv izbor, ali & hellip Vegas.

Toaletna soba je bila velika, ali nisam bio ljubitelj tapeta.

Lijevo od toaleta bio je tuš i japanska kada za kupanje i moj omiljeni dio sobe. Everything from the tiling on the wall to the amenities made it an absolutely amazing shower.

The shower area itself was massive and lead right to the tub. The head of the shower was very tall and just about touched the ceiling. Everything from the water pressure to the temperature to the shelving in the shower was fantastic, almost spa-like.

There&rsquos plenty of space in the shower.

I didn&rsquot end up using the tub, but it did look really nice. As you can see, there&rsquos a ton of natural light streaming through balcony window and coming from the bedroom. The tub itself is very deep, adding to that spa-like experience.

I didn&rsquot use the tub, but it looked amazing.

C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries products also flowed into the shower and tub area. In the shower, there were tubes of lavender and peppermint shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, and by the tub there was a bar of soap and shower cap provided.

Overall, the bathroom provided an amazing and refreshing shower and looked amazing, especially with the light reflecting off the tiles.

More C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries products were waiting in the tub area.

Service and Amenities

There were a variety of extra amenities, like a fully-stocked mini-refrigerator. If you&rsquore looking to get your Vegas pregame started in the room, look no further than the mini-fridge.

The mini-fridge was completely stocked.

There was also a selection of snacks for you to munch on &mdash everything from Fiji Water to Milano cookies, jelly beans, chocolate-covered almonds, cashews and Snickers, among other snack options.

There were plenty of snacks in the room.

It&rsquos also worth noting the room&rsquos abundance of power outlets. Just about everywhere I turned, there was an outlet &mdash more than I&rsquove ever seen in a hotel room before. This is a great perk, and one that often goes unnoticed.

The room had more power outlets than any hotel room I&rsquove been in so far.

I took the opportunity to try out The Cosmopolitan&rsquos room service one morning and I was incredibly satisfied. I didn&rsquot really have high expectations for room service, so my meal completely blew me away. I opted for the Nutella-stuffed French toast, which was topped with a crispy and delicious Corn Flake crust. As you can see, the Nutella was oozing from the French toast, and it was perfectly cooked &mdash I&rsquom still thinking about how good that was!

I also opted for the organic yogurt and berries &mdash not only was the yogurt delicious, but the berries were all extremely fresh and ripe. The whole meal was an opinion-changing room service experience.

A phenomenal room service breakfast.

If you&rsquore thinking of staying at The Cosmopolitan &mdash or just strolling through its lobby and casino &mdash it&rsquos well worth your time to stop at The Chandelier, the hotel&rsquos multi-story bar.

The multi-story Chandelier bar and lounge area.

If you&rsquove been to Las Vegas before, you know that many hotels are pretty strict about their 11:00am checkout times. For that reason and knowing it was on a Sunday and most people would be checking out right around that time &mdash probably after a long night out &mdash I chose to checkout from my room. By simply dialing down to the front desk, I was able to checkout without having to wait in line or incur a late-checkout fee. As you can see from the photo below, there was in fact a busy cluster of people in the lobby waiting to checkout around 11:00am.

The mass amount of people waiting to checkout at 11:00am.

Bottom Line

Overall, my stay at The Cosmopolitan was great. In a city where a hotel has to be over-the-top enough to stand out from the rest, The Cosmopolitan really stands out and I had a great stay. My only complaint was with the lighting in the living room of my Terrace One Bedroom room, which wasn&rsquot that big of a deal considering I didn&rsquot spend much of my time in the room anyway, especially the living room. The bathroom really made the room worth it, and I&rsquod consider staying in the same room again just for the bathroom. I&rsquod definitely consider staying at The Cosmopolitan again on my next trip to Las Vegas &mdash the experience definitely lived up to my expectations.

Vegas Trip Report Mirage April 30th - May 4th

This is my first time posting here and I have read many trip reports especially just prior to one of our visits. I found a lot of value in them so I decided to post and possibly it could give insight to somebody.

My wife and I flew out of Detroit on April 30th and landed in Vegas at about 11:00 am. We came out for our 30th wedding anniversary which was May 3rd. We took a cab to Mirage without much problem and got checked into a strip view room on the 24th floor. The cab line at the Airport was the smallest I have ever seen in Vegas. After getting our luggage up to the room and getting situated we headed down to the strip and made our way to the Tilted Kilt for lunch. We went there because we could get seated at the bar immediately. After that we walked to the Cosmopolitan and gamed a bit. We played a bunch of different slots and did good. We did not break the bank but we didn’t lose either. We spent some time playing at Mirage and I went up for a nap about 6:00 pm. That is 9:00 pm to me and I am usually sleeping by then as I am a pretty early riser. My wife came up about 8:30 pm for the night. I woke up about 11:15 pm and was ready to go. I walked over to Bellagio to play craps. The strip was lively and packed. Friday and Saturday on the strip was busy. If people were not wearing masks, you could not tell there was any sign of a pandemic.

I played craps at Bellagio for about 2 hours and did pretty good. There were a couple of gentlemen at the other end of the table who each hit about 5 points and I hit two, so it went ok. I walked away $300 up. I then went back to Mirage to game some more. I sat down at a roulette table and bought in for $500. I placed my bet and the dealer informed me I was at a $100 minimum bet table. Normally I would have grabbed my chips and walked, but I had enough beers in me to dabble a bit. When I play roulette I play the outside. I may bet odd/even, high/low. black/red or the low, medium and high numbers. In the past if I bet it will be high and red, it is low and black. This night was different. I had an incredible time there, unlike any other Vegas experience, everything I bet was hitting. It was to the point where I would put four bets out and they hit. Like all good runs in gambling it cooled down and when I colored up I walked away from the table with $2800.00 in chips. I walked up to our room, informed my wife of my adventures and immediately went to sleep (passed out). From then on my wife and I never touched the money we brought out and we gamed on that night’s winnings the rest of our stay.

Saturday morning, we went to Ellis Island for the breakfast, which as great. It was only about a 15-minute wait to get seated. The meal was great we both had the steak and egg special. We then made our way to Cosmopolitan and gamed. We spent a lot of time at Cosmo as we are trying to build some points and get some comps to stay there as we never have. We did ok and then made our way back to Mirage. We stopped at Flamingo and gamed and also at Harrah’s and did do well, lost $200. We placed bets on the Kentucky Derby and both of our strategies going in was to bet on Bob Baffert’s horse and another. We were going to put $50 on each. We didn’t and we took favorites and got smoked. After the race we went to the 108 Lounge at the Strat for some drinks and oysters. The view was incredible as always. We came back and gamed a bit at the Mirage and did below average. I was at the roulette table and my wife stopped by about 8:30 to tell me she was going up to the room. I bought in the roulette game for $500 and colored up about 9:45 pm with $185 so not the same success as earlier. That is the last thing I remember until I woke up the next morning. Evidently I was having trouble navigating the elevator floor console with my room key and called my wife to come get me. She said “put your room key over the fob and hit 24” to which I replied “what’s a fob”? She came down and retrieved me. Must have been the IPA’s. Needless to say Sunday morning I had some serious making up to do for my shenanigans Saturday night. Lucky for me, I married a very incredible woman and was able to pull it around.

Sunday morning, we had breakfast at the deli in Mirage and made our way to Cosmo to game. We played Wicked Wheel, 007, Game of Thrones and Willy Wonka and did good. We walked out of there a little after 12:00 noon up $200. We tried to get an outside table at Cabo Wabo’s but it was a long wait. We ended up going to the Beer Park and sat up at the bar and had lunch. The food is pretty good at the Beer Park. We then went and gamed a bit at Paris, the Linq and Harrah’s and had less than stellar results. We gave the $200 back. We noticed the strip was quite a bit quieter than Friday and Saturday. There were much less people walking about. We went back to Mirage and gamed a bit and went up for a rest in the room. We made our way down to the center bar at Mirage to have a few drinks before our dinner reservations at Otoro. Dinner was very good at Otoro, my wife had a couple of sushi rolls and I had the wagyu steak and shrimp. After that we walked over to Harrah’s to game and came back to Mirage and gamed a bit then retired for the night. We did ok gambling we about broke even.

Monday morning we gamed at Venetian while we were waiting for Walgreens pharmacy to open. We played on the wicked wheel and did really good. My wife and I had a ball. We put in $200 and at one point had it up to $550. We ended up cashing out at $487. We picked up the script and made our way to Cosmo. We tried to have breakfast at the restaurant as soon as you walk in the door on the north side but they were packed and the wait was long. We went up to the Overlook Grill on the fourth floor overlooking the Boulevard Pool for breakfast. Hrana je bila odlična. My wife had the avocado eggs benedict and I had an omelette. After that we went down and gamed on 007 and turned $200 into $435. We left about 12:00 and walked back to Mirage to get some pool time. The pool was pretty busy but we were able to grab a couple of loungers. It was great because when you were in the pool area masks were not mandated. The staff was wearing them but if you were in the pool or in your chair it was not required. We saw a lot of people walking around the pool area without them. We went up to the room to rest for a couple of hours before our anniversary dinner at Eiffel Tower restaurant.

When we got up to the restaurant at Eiffel Tower we didn’t know what to expect. I had reserved a window table but was not sure where it would be. To our total amazement it was in the corner closest to the Bellagio fountains. We were very impressed with the restaurant and highly recommend it. My wife ordered the lamb with the creamy French onion soup and I had the beef wellington with sea scallops. The meal was incredible. It was an amazing view to sit there and watch the fountains of Bellagio put on their show during our dinner.

After dinner we went back to the Mirage and packed up as we had an early flight the next morning. We talked about going down and game a bit but neither of us were up to it so we called it a night and went to bed.

Key takeaways: The strip was very busy on the weekend. The energy was there and we never felt unsafe or uneasy walking the strip. Sunday and Monday were much less busy but still fun. The buffets opened on May 1st and we heard a lot of shows are opening on June 1st. Wearing the mask while gaming was a downer but it did not take away from the Vegas experience, at least for us. My advice is if you like gambling and dining then go to Vegas. If you prefer the shows then maybe wait a bit.

Recenzije testera recepata

Kim Venglar

This is the first time I've tasted a Cosmopolitan and I love it. It's simple to make and very smooth going down. A nice refreshing drink that I can see myself making for guests during summer.

Linda M.

This is the quintessential Cosmopolitan—perfectly proportioned with a nice, sweet tang. I highly recommend purchasing 100% cranberry juice to elevate the flavor of this cocktail. Chilling your martini glass is a plus, too. Živjeli!

Linda Pacchiano

This is now my "go-to" Cosmo recipe.

The proportions in the recipe are perfect, although I usually add an additional splash cranberry juice. I very much prefer the orange twist as a garnish rather than a lime wedge. I always use vodka l'orange because I like the fact that it further adds to the orange, which is a great combination with the lime and cranberry. Depending on your preference, a plain or vodka citron would also be appropriate.

My only complaint is that it makes just 1 serving. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled in your cocktail shaker. All of the proportions would remain the same.

Victoria Filippi

It's always nice to have a cocktail recipe that works. I've enjoyed many Cosmopolitans in restaurants and bars, and this one is right up there. I think it's the perfect blend of ingredients to warrant a really well-balanced Cosmopolitan.

I enjoyed it using Ketel One Citron and garnished it with an orange slice and a lime slice. For something a little different, I think this would be quite delicious using pomegranate vodka and POM juice.

Jackie Gorman

Jednostavno. Stvarno dobro. Elegant in a martini glass. Zabava. Definitely not what I usually drink, and not something that I would ever order out. However, I really enjoyed this and will be enjoying it again. Maybe this evening.

Marilee Johnson

I think this has the right amount of all ingredients. It was refreshing, sweet, and just a little tart all at the same time. I've had as good—and much worse—at restaurants before. But for a make-at-home version, this is a good go-to recipe.

I’ve been craving a Cosmopolitan recently, but for one reason or another each night I’ve decided not to have a mixed drink. Tonight I grabbed the opportunity to try this. It’s now “My Perfect Ten Cosmopolitan.” See, I experiment with proportions to find the right balance for me for various cocktails, and now I need look no further for a go-to Cosmo recipe. Besides having the proportions that suit my taste, this recipe makes the right amount for me. The twist of a nice, fresh, sweet orange clinched it.

Susan, perhaps we’ll rename the recipe after your comment! Love your spirit of experimentation. And appreciate you letting us know this one tops your list. Hvala ti!

Yes !! She slept like a big WOOZY Baby. The drink was strong enough to drowned out the insomnia AND Methodist guilt for drinking it.

Cosmo Moment: My Mother -in-Law was a chronic insomniac. We Cosmo drinking cocktail hour denizens decided we would give her a Cosmo every evening to see if it would help. She drank it down much too fast (being a Methodist Tea totaler and having no notion of how to drink) and proclaimed she felt very relaxed but WOOZY with her voice going up several alarming octaves on the last syllable of the word. Thus was born a Cosmo tradition of never having one again without proclaiming our WOOZY-ness.


The History and Secrets of the Cosmopolitan

The Indispensables is Liquor.com’s series devoted to the classic cocktails drinkers of every skill need in their arsenal. Each installment features one signature recipe, assembled from intel by the best bartenders. The Indispensables may not save the world, but it’ll surely rescue your cocktail hour.

For such a pretty little drink, the Cosmopolitan has become the most maligned millennial of its generation—ubiquitous, utterly uninteresting and possessing a beauty that originates in part from the belly of a plastic bottle. Or so some say.

But the Cosmo still burns bright with the drinking public. So maybe it’s not such a bad drink after all. At its heart, it’s a perfectly respectable sour, and yet the Cosmopolitan teeters on its precarious tall stem between modern classic of the cocktail canon and pink pariah of certain bartending brethren.

“Bartenders meet me and are like, ‘Oh, you’re the guy I’ve wanted to kill for 30 years. I used to have to make millions of those!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m that guy,’” deadpans Toby Cecchini, unironically sipping a glass of sunset-pink rosé at his much beloved Brooklyn cocktail establishment The Long Island Bar, where he still stocks Ocean Spray for the occasional Cosmo request.

In case you’ve been living under a mountain of discarded Carrie Bradshaw costumes in Patricia Field’s closet, Cecchini is the unequivocal inventor of the Cosmopolitan as we know it today, made with Absolut Citron vodka, Cointreau, Ocean Spray cranberry juice cocktail, fresh lime juice and a lemon twist—a combo he came to in the autumn of 1988 when working behind the bar at Keith McNally’s famed Odeon, the bustling, neon-lit Tribeca hangout where arty celebs were as regular a sight as plates full of steak frites.

“Absolut came out with Citron, and we were absolutely amazed,” says Cecchini. “We were like, The flavorit’s u the vodka! It’s so silly to think about that now, but it begat the entire ’90s, which were about infusing stuff into vodka.”

During one shift, a waiter, Melissa Huffsmith, told Cecchini about a drink introduced to her by some visiting San Francisco friends. It consisted of vodka, Rose’s sweetened lime juice and Rose’s grenadine, and it was called the Cosmopolitan. “I thought that was ghastly,” says Cecchini.

He’d been making a lot of Margaritas at the time, swapping out well triple sec and sour mix for fresh lime juice and Cointreau, the up-step order of the day. It gave him an idea and a perfect place to play with that new citrus-infused vodka behind the bar.

“It was a really short leap,” he says. “I basically did the same thing we were doing with a Margarita.” His creation started as the unofficial staff drink but quickly spread to the paying customers.

“Madonna was drinking them all the time. She was having lunch constantly there with actress Sandra Bernhard,” says Cecchini. “They were older than me and called me boyfriend. ‘Boyfriend! Two more of those pink drinks!’” By the late ’90s, after the launch of HBO’s “Sex and the City,” in which the drink was nearly a fifth lead character on the show, the Cosmopolitan was the most famous cocktail in America.

It was also Cecchini’s personal albatross for a solid decade of his career, with every thirsty Candace Bushnell heat-seeking spectator gulping the drink like it was the only potable beverage in town. But then something started to shift. Quietly and without the thrust of a wildly popular cable television series, the blush on the Cosmo began to once again deepen. Perhaps it never actually went away.

“Are there current bartenders who hate the Cosmo? I’d say they hated it from 1998 to maybe 2014,” says Cheryl Charming, the bar director at Bourbon “O” Bar in New Orleans. “But a lot of things are like that. Sometimes you get tired of hearing a popular song, but let 15 or 20 years go by, and it’s different.”

Charming has been painstakingly at work on an epic 40-chapter book due out later this year that takes a deep dive into classic cocktails, the Cosmopolitan being one. The Cosmo chapter was a rabbit hole that dragged Charming all the way back to the 1970s, tracing the rosy trail of its timeline to find other versions and possible inventors of them.

Perhaps the first true postmodern Cosmo shift occurred when then head bartender of Daniel Xavier Herit put his elegant white Cosmopolitan on the bespoke menu at the well-heeled Upper East Side spot in 2007. In it, he switched out the triple sec with St-Germain elderflower liqueur, which had recently debuted in the States, and red cranberry juice for white.

But the main attraction was the visual. “I was freezing an orchid flower inside an ice ball, centered in a Martini glass. People were getting nuts when they were seeing it,” says Herit, now the food and beverage director at NoMo SoHo. “We would probably sell 50 white Cosmos on a Friday night!”

His Cosmo riff is not only still popular at Daniel Boulud’s flagship spot more than a decade later but graces the cocktail menu everywhere from Bar Boulud in London to Boulud Sud in Miami.

“I have three Cosmos on menus in two states. I love that drink,” says Will Benedetto, the beverage director for In Good Company Hospitality’s string of New York-based bars, as well as the co-owner and beverage director of The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club in Nashville.

What he finds is that each version needs tweaking based on that bar’s specific clientele—in New York, the “Sex and the City” standard for the tourists at Park Avenue Tavern, and a barrel-aged version with Botanist gin swapped out for vodka at the more adventurous Le Soleil hotel’s Trademark. At The Fox Bar, he plays around with a hint of swizzle influence, building around the main spirit ingredients of Cathead vodka and Grand Marnier.

He also tinkers with the trademark tart-sweet elements by boiling down whole cranberries with a little water until they’re the consistency of a syrup. While they cool, he adds equal part white caster sugar, lets it sit overnight and strains off the cranberries. Then citric and malic acids are added in measured weight proportions (1.5 and 1 percent, respectively) to bring just the right kind of tart to the table.

This is, of course, quite a bit more time consuming, expensive and complicated than popping open a drum of Ocean Spray. But it’s the integrity of that one ingredient that often seems to be why the Cosmo is viewed with narrowed eyes.

“I take issue with any juice in the bar that isn’t fresh-squeezed, but there’s usually some compromise that has to be made when you’re looking at cranberry,” says Matt Harwell, the general manager of Carson Kitchen in Las Vegas. “You lose the ‘fresh-squeezed’ but you gain consistency and cost control.” Here, clients clamor for the Mr. Big. Named for fictional Carrie Bradshaw’s on-again-off-again love interest, Harwell’s drink combines St. George California citrus vodka, Licor 43, fresh lemon juice, cranberry juice cocktail, spiced pear liqueur, The Bitter Truth celery bitters and Peychaud’s bitters.

“My only issue with it is if you’re going to a cocktail bar, we’re making the stuff for you,” says Benedetto. “You can open cranberry juice cocktail at home. Why pay me to do that? My job is to meticulously research ingredients.”

Benedetto isn’t alone in his Cosmo devotion. Some 30 years after its conception, and nearly 15 years after Bradshaw and pals hung up their Martini glasses, the hits keep coming.
