    I just noticed this when I was checking rates at the Cosmopolitan. No outside food or drink is allowed in rooms. WTH?

    Another thing I noticed... the internet that comes with the "resort" fee is good for sending email or browsing the web. If you want speeds fast enough for streaming video - that's extra!

    Why do companies make silly rules like this? :Þ

    I think those rules are just to protect them.

    Unless you have a suite with a butler who is going to charge a corkage fee don't worry about bringing in food or drink. I mean a big cooler might be a red flag but I've never stayed there without bringing some outside food or drink.

    As far as their internet, it's been the most reliable and fastest on the strip for me this year out performing CET and MGM properties including Caesars Planet Hollywood Delano (and earlier when it was TheHotel) Bellagio and Aria. That is in both towers from studios to suites and it even works throughout the resort, not just your room. I had no problem downloading large files at over a meg a second.

    I don't always talk up hotels but I will gladly be quoted in saying Cosmo's internet is one of the best on the strip.

    When I came in from CA to Vegas, we packed a small cooler with water in case we got stuck, We also stopped at Walgreens and got a 12 pack. It was not hidden. The bellman brought it to our room, and even filled the cooler with more ice. So it is not enforced at all.

    The WI-FI is rather good. I was able to stream videos,if they were longer I would pause them to let them load up a bit, but was not an issue.

    As far as the buy up for the Internet, if you are a Marriott Platinum you get the buy up free. Yhe you didn't tell me this when I checked in the last time, about a year ago, so I called down to the front desk to confirm. When I checked out they had already reversed the buy up fee.

    Yes, excellent wi-fi.

    Cosmo doesn't enforce that rule. We hosted a party is our suite there and the Bellman brought up our liquor and beer then called Housekeeping to bring us extra glasses and we had California Pizza Kitchen cater it. No one at Cosmo batted an eye.

    I recall this subject coming up not too long ago. Bottom line is that not only is this not enforced, but it's pretty much a standard line at every hotel in Vegas. Not a big deal.

    Yeah they don't care. Always walk to the walgreens in Pho and pick up stuff.

    I am sure they will use it for dickbags who tear up a room or act stupid.

    I remember reading a very similar thread about the same policy at the Wynn.

    Actually, most hotels across the country have this in their "policy". Standard stuff.

    Apparently, Cosmo puts it out there making it easy to see.

    But, it is not enforced - or at least nobody has come here complaining about it.

    We actually had horrid internet at Cosmo. It was unusable. We finally gave up on it.

    However, we also strolled to Walgreens & brought back munchies & juice for the room.

    I'm guessing that it's intended to discourage Cosmo's target demographic from lugging in cases of cheap liquor.

    I've had both good and bad internet at Cosmo. On my last trip, was in the east tower and could not pick it up on any device.

    They used to have this at the Riviera too. IIRC it had something to do with the scam pizza delivery places. I know that security at Bally's chases them out when they can catch them.

    Never had any problems taking food or drinks into any room anywhere in Vegas. As previously posted, I think they do it to discourage ******s.

    Yeah...like everyone else has said, it won't be a problem. Had a birthday party last year and the 10 of us lugged an ungodly amount of booze and delivery pizzas through the casino and up to the suite and no one said a thing.

    The put this sort of wording there because if they put "No Hillbilly's" people might get offended.

    I am most certainly not a hillbilly, lol. We usually bring a bottle or two to our room. I'm planning on having a birthday bash at Cosmo in August in a wraparound suite.

    I did just that earlier this month. Highly recommended :thumbsup:

    This was the before (Yes, the bell desk brought it up, but I think there was a $20 fee?)

    This was the after. Bellman took it down for a friend to pick up, but you could just as easily have them load it up in your car. I suggest tipping nicely :wink2:

    It's pretty simple though. Don't be obnoxious, too loud, or act entitled, because they could just as easily go by the letter of the law and end the fun in the room.
