I met up with an old friend in Las Vegas last week.  Her employer always puts her up in very nice hotels.  I enjoy seeing the details of the rooms and lobbies. This time it was The Cosmopolitan, one of the newer hotels on the strip.  Here is a  photo of the west tower only.  I like the of blue linear lights on the façade. There are also big private balconies attached to most of the rooms.

Here is a less glamorous photo in daylight that shows both towers

Here are three photos of the hotel room. Nice how the vanity and tub area is open to the room, making the space feel bigger.

Hotel room – there is a huge balcony on the other end of the room.

The next few photos are all taken on the main floor – casino, bars, and lobby. It is quite spectacular really, but it is the opposite of restrained. Everything shimmers and sparkles and there is a dazzling array of patterns, lights, mirrors, and colors. The aura throughout is opulence and  extravagance. It felt strange to walk these halls in flip flops and cotton. Diamonds and pearls would be right at home. Sequins and rhinestones would fit in too.
