The new $3.9 billion Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel-casino will open mid-December with about one-third of its 2,995 total rooms delaying opening until July 2011.
It’s likely to be the last major new hotel-casino to open on the struggling Las Vegas Strip for at least a few years.
Cosmopolitan’s CEO John Unwin said the hotel’s amenities include 13 restaurants, a spa, nightclub, 150,000 square feet of meeting and convention space and retail stores.
If Las Vegas isn’t already home to the finest restaurants and chefs in the world, now there’s more of ‘em!
The restaurant lineup at the sleek new $3.9 billon Cosmopolitan hotel-casino of Las Vegas has been announced. Four of the five have strong New York ties; the other will be operated by acclaimed Los Angeles chef David Myers of the restaurant Comme Ca. The others: Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill, Costas Spiliadis’ Estiatorio Milos, Scott Conant’s Scarpetta (Conant was previously attached to Fountainbleau), and Steakhouse STK.
The Cosmopolitan hotel-condominium-casino project in progress on the Las Vegas Strip has appointed 30-year hotel veteran and former Caesars Palace general manager John Unwin as the resort’s chief executive.
Unwin, who resigned from Caesars Palace after working there the past five years, will join the $3.9 billion project in October.
The Cosmopolitan is scheduled to open in September 2010 and is located on 8.5 acres between MGM Mirage’s CityCenter (scheduled to open this December) and the Bellagio on Las Vegas Boulevard.
