The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is expanding its reputation for modern design with an ongoing renovation project. When finished at the end of 2018, most of the resort's 3,027 rooms will have a brand new look and improved tech features.
The design process took about 18 months, with 20 designers invited to bid on the project. The field was eventually narrowed down to a handful of finalists who built 14 model rooms on property. Select guests and employees offered feedback and the Cosmopolitan approved concepts from New York's Virserius Studios and the hotel's own in-house design team.
The Terrace Rooms (studios, one-bedrooms and suites) and Reception Suites are edgy and sophisticated, with an emphasis on artwork and modern furnishings. Furniture has been upgraded to be chic and comfortable - not only indoors, but also on the spacious outdoor terraces. Lighting has also been expanded to make the rooms appear brighter.
Wraparound Terrace suites, with balconies that bend around the corner of the building, are designed to feel like urban penthouses with neutral colors, reflective finishes and adventurous patterns. The City Rooms and Suites follow a similar concept.
Perhaps the most noticeable improvements are the technology enhancements. In-room iPads make it easy to control lights, shades and temperature while utilizing "Rose" - a virtual concierge that can order food, bathroom supplies or show tickets at a moment's notice. All rooms will have at least one 65-inch smart high-definition television enhanced with Bluetooth connectivity and in-suite programs like Netflix. Swipe keys are being phased out in favor of RFID technology that allows you to simply hold the card up to the door in order to unlock it. Future Bluetooth technology is in development that would allow the customer to not only unlock a door with a phone, but also check-in remotely and avoid the lobby altogether.
Even though the Cosmopolitan opened just six years ago, the resort is always looking to stay one step ahead of the competition. In addition to the room renovations, the casino floor and sportsbook have also seen dramatic upgrades in recent months. New restaurants like Zuma, Blue Ribbon and Momofuku have proven to be welcome additions to an already stellar restaurant lineup.
