The 2,995-room Cosmopolitan, despite fulfilling the formula of any glitzy, behemoth Vegas casino-hotel, manages to feel both unique and intimate. The latter is due in part to the hotel's verticality, which spreads the public areas over three floors instead of one. Bars and gaming are concentrated on the ground floor; indie shops like L.A. import Beckley and London's edgy AllSaints Spitalfields reside on the second; and restaurants, including New York City cult sushi spot Blue Ribbon and a (faux) back alley pizzeria by Scott Conant, are at the very top. Still, this being Vegas, everything is done on a larger scale. The lobby is dominated by eight mirror- and LCD-wrapped columns showing video art. Deep in the casino is The Chandelier, a tri-level bar behind a curtain of two million crystals. And there are the multiple pools, which range from a Strip-side playground with billiards, foosball, and Ping-Pong tables to Marquee Dayclub, an adults-only lounge; at night Marquee transforms into a giant indoor-outdoor nightclub. Rooms average a giant 700 square feet and feel luxurious without being dull: There are Italian linens, of course, and soaking tubs, but also Phaidon art books and Piero Fornasetti's graphic wallpaper of Bond Girl-like ladies in the WC. Another bonus: Nearly all rooms have private terraces from which to ogle the neon excess below.
Which room to book: Terrace one-bedrooms have Japanese deep soaking tubs overlooking the Strip. Premium View rooms in the West Tower look straight onto the Bellagio fountains next door, which means front-row seats to the water show several times a day.
