The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is not for acrophobes. From a 40th-floor open-air balcony overlooking the Strip, Cosmopolitan hotel guests are seemingly at eye-level with the Eiffel Tower replica across the street at Paris Las Vegas. And the Cosmopolitan has 10 stories of hotel rooms above the 40th floor. Each unit of the 2,995-room hotel has its own terrace, which is unheard of in Las Vegas.
The difference is also the experience. The Eiffel Tower viewing platform is fully enclosed by steel and mesh. At the Cosmopolitan, hotel guests can take in the Strip, gaze upon the Bellagio fountains, look down on the Planet Hollywood Resort swimming pool and oversee CityCenter from beyond their rooms outside on a patio-style setting. A steel-enforced railing bar keeps you about two feet from the terraces' edge. Still, at that height someone can get a little weak in the knees.
There's already a lot of talk about the gorgeous, residential-style rooms and amenities including a sprawling spa, three separate pools (including an adult pool), a nightclub by the Tao Group, and 100,000 square feet of gaming space. Did we mention the restaurant collection helmed by celebrity chefs? Check out the photo gallery featured on Five Star Alliance.
