Could you add a Cosmopolitan category under hotels?

While we are on the subject, what would be the least expensive way to get a room with a view there?

Obviously the Cosmopolitan has had more than the usual problems with their opening. There room rates have fluctuated wildly and the use of terms such as 'view' and 'premium view' seems to have left a number of people with a sense of disappointment. However, I still think direct contact with the hotel beats any travel site or generalized hotel booking site.

Be sure to take the elevator to the third floor pool table and make an immediate turn soon after you exit the elevator... the "secret pizza place" is reported to serve great pizzas but has no signage.

Concerning that particular topic, can anyone here confirm that actually the commercially-oriented women at the Cosmopolitan have been young, attractive and rather subtle?

On-edit: Er,,uh... I meant confirm by your 'observations' ... not your participation.
I've heard that their opening night was quite well populated in that department but that the quality level was very high.

It appears the category has indeed been added and that the summary is informative.

In the "nit picking" department: I'd like to point out that the link at the bottom of the Cosmopolitan page has an extra "www" in it and therefore doesn't seem to work properly.

Cosmo is running a special this week that I thought was mentioned somewhere on this forum, but I can't find it now, must be on a different forum (hard to keep 'em all straight). So I'll mention it here. I stopped by here tonight to get an Identity Card, and Cosmo is running a special right now where they'll upgrade you free to equal status of any Strip casino's loyalty card. So I pulled out my Diamond Card and instantly got Cosmo's Gold Card with 20,000 points on it. They also gave me $10 free slot play (not good on progressives though) which I played on a DW machine and walked away with $22 (after putting in $1 to activate freeplay). Cosmo will upgrade you even if you already have a Cosmo card. I may not ever return since they have no poker room, but it's good to know I have discounts should I ever want to stay there, and I'll get emails offers now. Platinum = Caesars 7 Stars. Although without any equivalent to the Diamond Lounge, I don't see how it's worth much. "Deluxe Turndown Service" What the heck is that? Rachel McAdams tucks me in?

Maybe too subtle - young and attractive yes, but the usual Vegas party crowd. I didn't notice too many of them wandering alone.
