Military Travel and Hotel Deals for Las Vegas
l (infamously known for its “death rays” causing second degree burns to hotel guests by the pool). The hotel is great for Marines and their families, the hotel is modern and the rooms are very compact, with all the comforts you would expect of a hotel of this class.
The couch is a pull out bed, but given the tight quarters, you’re not going to want to leave the bed out all day. The Cosmopolitan has a large chandelier that is the central theme of the hotel. Although the Wicked Spoon buffet in the hotel WAS the talk of the town, the quality has now gone downhill and it’s not worth the high price tag. For $40+, you will be subject to awful wait staff who are more interested in socializing with other staff and regulars instead of doing their jobs of clearing the plates from your table or even refilling your drinks. The presentation of the food is unique and fun, everything is in small portions, however, the novelty of presentation is not enough to make one forget about the actual quality of the food. Since there are not as many patrons as before, the food tends to sit out and is stale, chewy, and overcooked. The crab legs were soaked in brine and you could actually squeeze the salt water from the little bit of meat you were able to extract. The Korean ribs were tough and impossible to eat. And don’t be fooled by the cute Chinese take out boxes. You’ll find better quality Chinese food at Panda Express. The only bright spot in this buffet were the desserts. The gelato was good, but once again, you’re going to wait in line, waiting for the staff to get through their socializing before they acknowledge you. Save yourself the hassle and expense. Go to the Wynn buffet! Use militarytravelzone.com for military hotel discounts and don’t forget the rebate program that can save you more!
INSIDER TIP: There’s a large red shoe sculpture in the lobby that many girls can’t resist not posing in!
