An affordable hotel with Marriott Bonvoy points
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection is a Category 7 hotel.
This means it costs 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points a night.
This hotel is one of the newest on the Las Vegas Strip. It is particularly appreciated because of its exceptional location, but also because of the luxury of its facilities.
Whether you choose to pay in cash… or points, this one will be very expensive! And like most hotels in Las Vegas, it does not escape the “resort fee” of US$39.
This hotel is the kind of little pleasure you get for a couple getaway for example!
To earn Marriott Bonvoy points in Canada, the easiest way is via one of these 3 credit cards:
- The Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card
- The Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card
- The American Express Cobalt™ Card
Each one offers a nice welcome bonus and the ability to earn Marriott Bonvoy points on each of your purchases.
You could have both Marriott Bonvoy cards and collect your points in your Marriott Bonvoy account!
The American Express Cobalt™ Card allows you to transfer your Marriott Bonvoy membership rewards to 1:1.2.
This means that the 5 points-privilege accumulated per dollar of purchases in certain categories:
- grocery stores
- restaurants and bars
- convenience stores
- delivery of food at home
… allow you to get the equivalent of 6 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar of purchases!
Our review of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection
Jean-Maximilien and I offered ourselves a little getaway to Las Vegas in love… while my mother-in-law kept us the kids in Montreal.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection attract our attention every time we’re in Las Vegas. So it was time for us to stay there… One night!

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection is conveniently located on the Las Vegas Strip. You can easily walk to all parts of the strip.
Address: 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard South Las Vegas, Nevada 89109
The day before, we were at the Encore Las Vegas Hotel – having benefited from an excellent rate through the Fine Hotels and Resorts service on the Platinum Card® from American Express.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection had agreed to an early arrival at 1pm through the Marriott app chat, but we chose to arrive later, around 4pm.
Jean-Maximilien asked if a suite was available… and he got it (after a few discussions…!).
We are heading to our suite located on the 32nd floor…. with a “Fontaine’s” view. This is the last room at the end of the hallway…
Our room is a one-bedroom Terrace Suite type… i.e. 7 categories above the standard room, reserved with points. Thank you Platinum Elite status!
At the entrance to the suite is a very large living room with corner sofa.
In the same room is the mini-bar… whose product prices are of the “Las Vegas” type.
A screen allows you to control everything in the room (air conditioning, light, floor service…) and gives practical information.
Separating the living room from the bedroom, a very large closet.
The room is made up of a King bed.
The decor is luxurious.
Facing the bed, a very large television set.
Our suite is accessible to people with reduced mobility. Thus, the bathroom is adapted accordingly.
It is therefore rather sober: we do not have double sinks as in other suites in which we had the chance to stay in Las Vegas.
The toiletries are of high quality.
The centrepiece of the bathroom – or more generally of the suite – is the shower / bath part.
The shower and bathtub are separate. And the bathtub is VERY large!
And what about the view from his bubble bath…
Who has ever seen a hotel with terrace rooms in Las Vegas ??!
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection did it: most of its rooms have terraces overlooking the Strip.
And the view is of course beautiful by day….
… like at night!
We didn’t enjoy the pool with an evening out that night… and the next morning the rain was waiting for us when we woke up!
Here are pictures of it in the rain… something rather unusual in Las Vegas!
To do him justice, here are photos from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas website, Autograph Collection:
This immediately makes it better with the sun!
Restaurant and bar
We only experienced the bar, the famous The Chandelier.
This bar, on several floors, is well worth a visit… and the cocktails are exquisite!
At the time of our stay, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection was classified as category 6: the room was charged at 50,000 points per night (equivalent to about 42,000 Privilege membership rewards obtained with American Express Cobalt™ Card) plus US$35 in resort fees….
Since then, the hotel has been listed as a Category 7. This means that the night has increased to 60,000 points with a US$39 resort fee. This makes you think about the use of its points for such a stay… especially since this hotel is like a “resort”.
This means that Elite members will not have benefits like free breakfasts. At most an upgrade.
If you would like to stay at this hotel, I would recommend:
- to do it off weekends
- to use American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts to get a price that includes benefits such as breakfast, upgrades and spa credit (see Fine Hotels and Resorts sheet)
This will be a good opportunity to use the $200 annual credit on the Platinum Card® from American Express for example!
