    Everything, dammit!

    Short of that outburst, how they made us feel from the moment Kevin matched the Wynn offer to KF being the a great host we adore her!

    The security personnel, on our January Visit we had an altercation with a moron trying to hustle my bride. It was taken care of swiftly.

    Ahhhh the view. Anyone who says it isn't about the view is on the pipe!

    The vibe, the restaurants, the pizza, room service, and the anticipation of going back!

    Makes a Cdn Veteran with PTSD, smile....a lot....ok....laugh a bit....ok...a lot. It rocks!!!!!

    Yes the balconies are awesome. But I'm surprised no one mentioned the beds. Oh the beds and pillows are so wonderful. I feel like I'm sleeping on a cloud. Love the cosmos! The cocktail service is really good, great selection of slots (just wish I could win at them). I like the high limit slots but last about two seconds there. Like D.O.C.G. - tasty food. Secret Pizza. And there's a Starbucks which I gravitate to like a magnet in the mornings). The beauty iOf the chandeliers as you walk in and through the Casino.

    I can't believe I never said anything about the beds when I posted a year ago, considering I own two of them! Sam's Club sells them and they are wonderful.

    Va Bene will make you a plain cheese panini if you ask nicely (equivalent of grilled cheese sandwich, worked wonders when I needed the world to stop spinning from alcohol).

    The scent inside the property. Smells wonderful. Aria's smell gives me headache.

    - The general vibe (it doesn't feel horribly corporate like many other places). The music helps this a lot too.
    - The design! So many cool interior design things throughout--even in spaces like The Henry and the epic art installation in Starbucks.
    - The scent! As soon as I walk in it just brings back the happy memories.
    - Lunch Like a Spaniard at Jaleo. Great food for a steal plus never a crowd.
    - Great cocktail service on the floor.
    - Friendly staff--not overbearing or fake, but ones you can have a real conversation with.
    - The layout--I like the vertical layout and it's even better if you're in the Boulevard Tower.
    - The comps--they've been so generous with hotel stays. I feel very well taken care of considering my level of play.
    - Cleanliness. I saw employees over various stays sanitizing every part of the slots and slot chairs. I was so impressed. They keep up with the glassware and cigarettes too.

    -The Comps! For my level of play they treat me better than anywhere, host AP is awesome, anytime I email him he responds immediately or my phone rings.
    -Fried chicken at Blue Ribbon
    -Guac at China Poblono
    -Birthday cake at Milk bar
    -Lunch at Milos
    -Cocktail service
    -Location on the Strip
    -Casino vibe
    -Fountain view, it never gets old
    -They want to stay on top, in just my last two years of staying there they have made so many upgrades and nice changes, there is always something new, fresh and exciting going on.

    - The ever changing LED screens wrapped around the posts as you enter from the taxi dropoff
    - The slot rotation, they do a good job of keeping a mix of established favorites, but always seem to have the newest ones as well.
    - The Wicked Spoon & Holsteins ( we're not huge foodies, so a good buffet or good burger are all I'm looking for in Vegas)

    This just popped up on my YouTube.

    I think this it does a great job of showing the vibe that a lot of us love about the Cosmo.

    Just got back from Cosmo a couple weeks ago and I must say the Acai berry breakfast bowl with greek yogurt at Overlook grill had me go back for it twice. I will add I was on a mission for some meals a bit on the healthier side this trip but it will be a must every trip now. Hubby had the coconut oatmeal which was really good too and the green shake (the shake tasted not great but was good for the hangover). Also had the Spaghetti Scarpetta is known for and highly recommend it. Next trip I'll try the spa and hope it makes my list of favorites at Cosmo

    Va Bene has a terrific strawberry banana smoothie. Loved the convenience with it right there on the slot floor.

    I will keep this in mind for next week. I was thinking where to get a smoothie but the stuff from Juice Standard looked a bit too precious for me.

    Their coffee is what got me to buy Illy for home. I’ve done their sandwiches a couple of times for a quick bite. Enjoyed the couple I’ve had. The pastries are decent but not blow your mind. But the line at Aria Patisserie is usually a bit long and Donut Bar is all the way downtown.

    Exactly. I love that there is almost never a line and if you are friendly with the drink servers in that area, they will even grab your order for you.
