“Our editors and writers travel the globe each year to scout hotels, and the Fodor’s 100 Hotels represent the best of the best,” Fodor’s Executive Editorial Director Arabella Brown said.
Judges commended the Cosmopolitan for its sleek design, technological innovation and customer service.
“Video screen-bedecked pillars greet guests with digital artwork as they check in via iPad at red lacquered registration desks,” editors wrote. “On the casino floor, guests can escape the crowds by slipping into a ‘casino cabana,’ small, lounge-style rooms that offer a VIP gambling experience without the VIP expense. Then there’s The Chandelier, a three-story bar bedazzled with enough crystals to make patrons feel like they’re sitting inside a Swarovski showroom. Above all this, in the property’s nearly 3,000 rooms, the design aesthetic continues; every suite boasts a collection of art books and a jar of colored pencils. Who said gambling getaways can’t inspire?”
As a nominee, the Cosmopolitan is featured on Fodor’s website and will be celebrated at an upcoming awards event in New York City.
