Wraparound Terrace Suite BEDROOM at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

This is one of a series of posts covering aspects of the Wraparound Terrace Suite.

What the suite is all about: The bedroom of the Wraparound Terrace Suite at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. One would expect a sprawling room considering the area of the 1,200 square-foot suite. But there is a restrained design with thoughtful choices of the individual pieces of furniture and decorative elements. If you remove the living and dining area and kitchen from the suite, does the bedroom still fits a guest's needs. This one does.

The king-size bed faces one of the room's three sliding doors, all of which serve as windows for the suite. The glass of the railings assures the view is not cut in half if one, like myself, chooses to wake by the morning light. Black out curtains are available for those who feel daylight is a rude awakening. The touch screen of the telephone also blacks out and light up again with a touch of finger. All the lights can be turned off though one button on the screen (click HERE for a further description of the phone features).

A considerate choice was made to have the bed face a window rather than the television which is mounted on side wall and can be angled to view from the bed. All the pillows are purposeful for comfort with only one excess accent pillow. Above the headboard is a window between the bedroom and bathroom that features an intricate pattern of sheer panels. These can be raised or lowered from the bathroom.

Avoiding a distractive design aesthetic, the bedding is a crisp white and navy blue with a cushiony comforter. I like the fabric panels that cradle the nightstand corners and which further delineates the bedroom from the bathroom. The open concept of the suite continues with doorless entryways to the bathroom on each side of the bed.

The nightstands aren't encumbered by lamps which are mounted to the wall. Outlets by the nightstand lets guest charge phones bedside. Need a something to read bedside: a set of art books decorates the room.

A chest of three drawers is a take of a piece of vintage luggage providing lots of storage. To retain the sleek look of the room, it's probably best to avoid placing personal items on the shelf beneath each nightstand or the long narrow shelf mounted on the wall that curves 180 degrees to supply a second shorter shelf. Smaller storage is provided by the nightstand drawers. They are the right size to keep electronic charging accessories.

A vignette comprised of a leather armchair and orange side table supplies that cozy corner to read a book by room light or daylight. A valet stand is tucked in one corner to have a suit and fashion accessories ready for a formal evening. The opposing walls feature a tasteful framed print on one and a faceted mirror on the other.

As most hotels change be linens only once during the average guest's stay, a large orange button is used to let housekeeping know that a guest would like fresh linens. Housekeeping was fantastic is keeping the entire suite serviced after my first two nights. Obviously cleaning this room takes more time and I bet includes a long check list for servicing the room.

Don't forget to tip well if you're ever staying in large suites especially ones at luxury resorts. The amount is debatable ($7-$10) especially for the Wraparound Terrace Suite. If you've hit a lucky streak you might feel more generous. Leaving no gratuity for daily housekeeping would be inappropriate. I assumed despite the multiple spaces the gratuity was still left in the bedroom on the bed or nightstand.
