There are THREE pools at the Comopolitan, the biggest and most popular one is the Boulevard Pool which literally faces Las Vegas Boulevard. This pool features house music with a moderate amount of families, so you can choose if this "middle of the road pool" is your style. There are plenty of chairs both in and out of the pool; one very nice feature at this pool and the Bamboo Pool is there are chairs IN THE POOL that allow you to lie or sit in 10" of water along the perimeter of the pool, and of course you also have the option of renting a cabana. There is also a shaded area with two pool tables, a lounge area, and a cafe adjacent to this pool. If you can stand the 100+ degree heat of the summer, you can also play tennis on the tennis court.
The Bamboo Pool was my favorite place to hang outside. It was quiet, with Brazilian, French & instrumental music, had only one child in the pool, and also offered two refreshing "showers" where you could press a button for a "spritz" inside the pool. There was a small cafe/bar area at this pool, and the outdoor massage areas are adjacent to this pool.
The first day I was outside, the winds were so strong I had trouble holding my magazine open, even though there are high clear glass wind breaker walls. The gusts were so strong they blew my coverup away! I told security and went to my room wrapped in a towel. As I was calling the "Beck & Call" button on my room phone to ask if anyone had found it, the woman said, security had just found my coverup and they were on their way to deliver it to my room! I wish my life had a "Beck & Call" button!
I went upstairs to the Day Club/Nightclub Marquee Pool but literally turned around and came back to the Bamboo Pool as my tolerance for loud thumping techo beats was far below my desire to lounge in the very cool club area.
The lobby columns are all four sided screens which feature changing art, one of the most beautiful was this one of flowers and sea creatures. I saw virtual "bookcases", black & white scrolls, shadowy figures moving behind screens, and colorful mosaics at different times and on different days.
The showcase of the hotel is the Chandelier Bar. In the center of the hotel, it is three floors high, and you can have a drink INSIDE any of the three levels! There is either a stair or glass elevator to the second level of the chandelier which is floor level 1.5, so do NOT take the escalators or you will go right past it.
I loved the lounge areas inside the second and third floors.
This is one part of the second level.
Another thing I loved about the hotel was the unusual and unique touches everywhere, from a common area outside the restaurants that features a pool table, to automatic dispensers.
There were two small "art" dispensers, but on the third Chandelier level there was also this U-Tique.
Some of the items for sale included, flats, an eye mask, eye lashes, and various adult game kits. You definitely can't say this hotel is not fun!
There are several bars on the main casino floor, one of which is Bond. You can barely see them in this photo, but there are live dancers in the glass "cages" that face the Boulevard. Although I'm sure they will serve you your martini however you would like it, the name of this bar may be based more on the chains that hang in the sitting area.....
Being a casino, of course they have all the table games and slot machines, but being the Cosmopolitan, their slot machines were a bit different than ones in other casinos. You could literally win "Big" on this machine!
There is artwork from fabulous artists all over the hotel; some of which is hidden in the hallways between conference areas or on different levels as you walk from the elevator to the shops or restaurants. One hallway featured chocolate dipped eye glasses and stilettos.
Along the same hallway were two shoe sculptures that nearly touched the ceiling.
I found some nice puppies to hang out with, but they were too big for me to take home!
