The Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas Opening December 2010 Sets New Standard Among Las Vegas Resorts

New Luxury Resort Will Feature Inspired Designs, Original Collection of Diverse Dining Experiences and Expansive Private Terraces Overlooking the Las Vegas Strip

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas [] pairs stylish design with an adventurous and welcoming spirit – delivering a decidedly different kind of Las Vegas experience. The new 2,995-room resort will feature over-sized residential style living space with expansive one-of-a-kind private terraces and spectacular designs by acclaimed interior architects David Rockwell, Jeffrey Beers, Adam D. Tihany and the Friedmutter Group. Guests will enjoy diverse dining experiences from the country's top chefs – all new to Las Vegas, unprecedented services and amenities, innovative new membership offerings, three distinct pool environments, a 110,000-sq. ft. casino and breathtaking views of the Strip at every turn. The resort will first welcome guests in December 2010.

Situated at the heart of the Strip, The Cosmopolitan’s uniquely vertical multi-tower design on just 8.7 acres of land boasts sweeping views of the Las Vegas skyline, allowing guests to feel that they are truly at the epicenter of the vibrant city while maintaining a boutique style footprint. “The Cosmopolitan is about creating a resort experience that is truly different than anything that exists right now in Las Vegas,” says John Unwin, CEO of The Cosmopolitan. “When you combine spacious suites, high design from talent like David Rockwell, a curated award-winning dining collection, unparalleled service and gaming, we know we are giving guests an experience that’s been missing in Las Vegas and harkens back to an era when guests felt connected, inspired and engaged by their resort.”

The Cosmopolitan will offer culinary concepts from some of the country's top chefs and restaurant brands, each opening for the first time in Las Vegas. To date, the prestigious roster will include: Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill by restaurateurs Bruce and Eric Bromberg; Comme Ca by acclaimed Los Angeles chef David Myers; New York City's Estiatorio Milos by restaurateur Costas Spiliadis; Scarpetta and a new casual wine bar by award-winning chef Scott Conant; and popular steakhouse STK from The One Group.

The 50-story East and West towers will be comprised of over-sized hotel and condominium-style rooms ranging in size from 730 sq. ft. to over 5,400 sq. ft. in addition to 10 three-story bungalow-style suites adjacent to the west pool deck. It is anticipated that each tower will also house a collection of privately owned condominium units although the size, nature and timing of this program is dependent upon the outcome of ongoing litigation.  Purchased by Deutsche Bank in August 2008, The Cosmopolitan consists of 2,995 rooms, nightclub and ultra lounge, 150,000 sq. ft. of convention and banquet facilities, restaurants, 50,000-sq. ft. spa, salon and fitness center, retail and three pool environments.
