The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas isn’t even seven years old yet, but it’s already itching for a refresh. The company announced on Wednesday that when renovations are complete in 2018, 90 percent of the guest rooms will have been upgraded. Of the resort and casino’s 3,027 rooms, 2,895 of them are getting a facelift in the coming months.
Among all the changes, the rooms will be completely outfitted with top-of-the-line technology that millennials will likely find very appealing. An iPad “virtual concierge” will enable guests to make restaurant and spa reservations, buy tickets, order room service, schedule wake-up calls, and control lighting and temperature. This will also be a great tool for meeting professionals to utilize. They’ll be able to communicate with attendees to send updates and alerts about the itinerary.
Other anticipated technological additions include 65-inch Samsung TVs to stay entertained with Hulu, YouTube, Pandora, Crackle and NetFlix, and personal Bluetooth connectivity.
“Where The Cosmopolitan is at today is a reinvention of the property that opened its doors more than six years ago,” said Bill McBeath, president and CEO of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. “The past two years have been a transformative process that has reinvigorated gaming, food and beverage and will now include the complete redesign of our hotel rooms. They are bold, innovative and a direct reflection of our alluring brand.”
The rooms receiving these renovations are located in the Boulevard and Chelsea Towers. They’ll first become available exclusively to members of Identity, the resort’s rewards program, before hitting the market for everyone to book. The Terrace rooms and Reception Suites will incorporate rich jewel tones, touches of gold, handcrafted patterns and artwork. The property is hoping guests will feel an edgy and sophisticated vibe.
“The design of the rooms is intended to lead guests on a journey of discovery, allowing them to explore different aspects that would not immediately be revealed at first glance,” states a press release. “Some of the more playful features are located in discrete locations such as whimsical wallpaper within the closet or shadowed figures that separate the shower from the bedroom.”
The Wraparound Terrace Suites and City Rooms & Suites are taking a different approach, seeking to emulate the residential feel of an urban penthouse. Visitors can expect to see a neutral color palette accented by bright colors. Feast your eyes on graffiti art, wallpapered closets and playful patterns.
These upgrades have been in the pipeline for quite some time. After a thorough 18-month selection process, The Cosmopolitan decided to team with Virserius Studios on the re-design project.
Earlier this year, the hotel introduced 21 Boulevard Penthouses in February and renovated the Lanai Suites and Bungalow Suites, and built 46 additional rooms in 2016. The Chandelier Bar is also undergoing renovations before the end of next year and the expansion of retail store Vitals will be complete before summer 2017 concludes. Several new restaurants opened during the past two years.
