Which is a better a Wraparound Suite or a Terrace Suite with a Fountain View?

    Hi all,

    I currently have an offer from the Cosmopolitan for 4 Complimentary nights, $1075 Identity Play & $300 Dining Comps.

    When I go to book the room all options are free, except for the Wraparound Terrace with a Fountain View. They want 10 grand for that for 4 nights!

    So it's down to a Terrace Suite Fountain View or a Wraparound Suite with no Fountain View.

    I previously stayed in a Terrace Studio with a Fountain View & I absolutely loved it. It was way better than anything I experienced at the Aria or the Bellagio.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I have had the terrace suite which has fountain view many, many times. It's a great room. Now I get wraparounds not fountain view. The wraparounds are nicer, but it doesn't mean that terrace suite is bad. It's a really nice room. I take wraparounds because I have seen the fountain a million times and I'm weird but I would much rather look at the mountains than the fountain.
    I also book the wraparounds because it took a jump to get up to them, I had gone a bunch and spent too much haha. I'm pretty sure after I behave a couple trips I will be back to terrace suites and even one bedrooms, so I'm booking them while I can.
    I'm a bit torn on which I would pick. I think everyone should do fountain view the first trip or 10 haha. But the other views do not suck. The fountain is just a postcard view.
    I find the terrace suite and studio kind of interchangeable. I really like the studio because of the ensuite. The suite has that ensuite but bigger, plus a living room and second bathroom. A wraparound is kinda huge, I've lived in smaller houses haha.
    My freeplay is about half what yours is so you are probably more solid into wraparounds, so I would decide on how much you want the fountain view. If you do at all, get the suite. If you want to look at the strip or the pool, do wraparound.
    It's 3 am.. I'm rambling. :D

    They are both great rooms and I’m sure you’ll love whatever you choose.

    The sunrise views over the mountains and the night view of Aria are beautiful. The best part of the wraparound for me is having the two different views. My SIL had a wraparound that had Strip/Aria but still could see the Bellagio fountains. (She worked really hard to get that view. Basically called the concierge and reservations with a spiel.)

    I think I’d pic the terrace suite just for the fountain view.

    Thanks to both of you for your replies. Great info & lovely pics.

    I'm arriving into Vegas on the 27th for 7 nights. It was giving me the choice of the Wraparound Suite or the Terrace View for the first 4 nights, but not the weekend. I'd emailed my host to see if they could do me a deal for the seven nights & while I was waiting to hear back, I noticed all the rooms starting to disappear for Superbowl Weekend!

    So I ended up having to take 4 nights over Superbowl weekend, but an Executive suite was the best available room. I got a Confirmation Number, but strangely no email confirmation. I just spoke to reservation's Live chat there now to see if everything was ok with my booking. It wasn't in their system! They apologized, but the best room they can give me now is a studio terrace with no fountain view! At this rate, I'll end up in a tent on the roof.

    The Live Chat person was very nice & luckily I'd kept a screenshot of my booking. Live chat mentioned that they recently did an update to their systems. Anyway they said they'd sort it out for me. So fingers crossed.

    Hopefully I'm getting all my bad luck out of the way before I leave!

    Oh no! I had a host do that to me. Good thing you went with your spidey senses and followed up. I did not :/ It was a bad trip haha.
    I don't think i've seen executive suite before. We need pics if you get it. I've been tempted to pick it just because I haven't had it yet . I think I might be going to cosmo too much. The only room I honestly don't like there is the city room. Everything else is awesome. As long as you get a room, it will be great. I'm sure you will get another chance for the wraparound!
    I really have a fondness for the terrace studio I had that was facing West. I just stared at the mountains the whole time. I was high enough to see over.. bellagio(?) I think was in the way? Something was. Dude at the front desk thought I was crazy for trading my terrace suite for it that trip. I was so anemic and didn't want to do the extra walk to the Chelsea tower, i just wanted to be in boulevard so I could just plop down and gamble. It was amazing!

    Straight down to the casino floor is the business. It's important to have your priorities right!

    I love the terrace studio. At least you know what the room looks like. Super Bowl weekend is crazy busy.

    @fragyul I get like that over the city studio-I kind of want to stay there just to see it. The bathroom looks awesome. But I don’t mind the city room either.

    If I get freeplay and am not paying to stay at Cosmo.. of course I will take it.. but I will whine a bit :D. If I got @Fluffs freeplay, I would stay in a tent on the roof hahaha

    Ha ha, definitely a first world problem for sure! I've received an email confirmation now, but for a Terrace Studio. I've reached out to the Aria as well. if I can get a room there for the weekend, I think I'll switch & try & experience that Wraparound suite earlier in the week at the Cosmo.

    I'm just delighted to have a room now for the Super Bowl weekend, considering it is going to be so busy. I felt pure blind panic last night, when I saw the rooms start to disappear before my eyes.

    And as Claire says the Terrace Studio is a great room, even if no fountain view this time.

    Yeah, I did that today with a throw that went on sale at urban barn.. sigh. Luckily I snatched a couple in the end. Maybe it's a good sign for you?

    The Aria have offered me a comp room for the Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday now, so I am all sorted for the week. It's just the room though & nothing else. The Cosmo offers are by far the best ones that I receive.

    I'v heard back from my host now. Monday & Tuesday are her days off & she's upgraded me to a Terrace One Bedroom – Fountain View. Things are coming together nicely now & I'm genuinely excited.

    I recommend always going thru your host. I didn’t make Gold this year but still able to get 4 comped nights in a two queen fountain view terrace room over Super Bowl weekend. This offer is not an option for me online but my host can always get me the extra bed vs king. I’m pretty sure I can make Gold next trip...so hopefully my offers don’t dwindle.
    I don’t always care about fountain view but I like to have it every third trip or so....it is so beautiful.
    Have a great trip!

    Thanks @ttaylor001 I did reach out to my host first, but she is off on Mondays & Tuesdays.I then panicked when I saw the rooms start to disappear for Super Bowl weekend & took what I could online. But, all's well that ends well.

    I'm so excited now, I'm like a little kid at Christmas! Role on the 27th!

    Just keep in mind with casino comped rooms you can get bumped around to different room types at check in. The good news is the hotel has a lot of terrace studios and terrace one bedrooms, so it shouldn't be a problem. With the suites, it's a lot easier to get bumped down to a studio or one bedroom.

    Remember it's ADT that gets you the comps, not status! Oh, and that's Average Daily Theo, not Alcohol Drunk Ttaylor! ;)

    Terrace suites are only in the Chelsea tower (I think!) That’s how I usually make my decision, if I can get a wraparound in the Boulevard tower I always take it no matter the view because I’m lazy and like to bring food up to the room and my Hattie B’s gets cold on the long walk back to the Chelsea tower hahaha
