Cosmopolitan Resort History
The cosmopolitan is one of the newest resorts in Las Vegas.
The Cosmo as it’s known and in this article will be referred to opened on December 15th 2010 on The Las Vegas strip and quickly became one of the busiest and most popular casinos in Las Vegas.
The Cosmo features 3027 rooms spread out over two towers known as the Boulevard and the Chelsea towers.
There is also 110,000 square feet of casino gaming space, and 300,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
These are just a few of the stats about the Cosmo but to understand the enormity of the resort you should just see it for yourself if you haven’t.
The Chandelier bar is something to see in the middle of the casino; it features a chandelier of over 2 million crystal beads.
The resort has many high end restaurants and clubs on the property including the most famous night and day clubs Marquee.
There is also a signature spa and The Boulevard Pool available for guests’ use.Since the Cosmo is such a large property in Las Vegas it is no surprise that it employs almost 5400 part time and full time employees.
They made headlines on May 22 when they gave every employee that works at The Cosmo a $5,000 bonus.Since the Cosmopolitan is such a large Las Vegas property you can imagine that there are accidents everyday from either employees or guests. There was once a fire on the pool deck after the Cosmo first opened and last year on New Years weekend a man fell to death from a fall from multiple stories up.
All hotel resorts in Las Vegas including The Cosmopolitan are really good at sweeping these injuries under the rug.
We all remember “ What happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas”, well in the case of accidents and injury that was usually the case.
Having lived in Vegas for many years we saw over and over how hotels including the Cosmopolitan were able to make serious injuries disappear.
Something that visitors know nothing about or if they were serious enough to make the news the story was gone the next day.
