    What are the hotels on the strip that offer a microwave and a mini fridge in the room? (Any type of rooms, except the expensive penthouse sadly because we cannot afford it!)

    Cosmopolitan, Vdara, and Elara, off the top of my head. There may be more but can't think of them right now.

    Not all Cosmo rooms have the micro/fridge. The terrace ones do.

    I noticed that my reservation confirmation said that no outside food or drink was allowed in the room.

    Never heard of any hotel stating this. How would they ever police this??

    They all say it in one way or another. What they really are trying to prevent is you having an outside caterer.

    I have about ten bags of groceries delivered to my hotel every stay and never had a problem, the bell desk always brings the stuff up.

    If you tried to wheel in a keg you might have a problem.

    Housekeeping could report the groceries/drinks in your room. If management wants you out of the room, they could act on this. If you tip the maid well, she likely has nothing to report. :rolleyes2:

    If you wrecked the room, this would also give them extra excuses to apply a damage fee.

    Old college trick but if you really really need a fridge, you can tell the front desk you need it for medical reasons. They will absolutely bring one up for you.

    I stayed in a Cosmo Terrace Suite for ten days last April (2012) and not only was the refrigerator stocked with soda, juice, water etc but I had purchased snacks and cereal to have in the room, some of which was clearly on display on the counter. Nothing happened. There is a full sized working oven, a microwave and a full sized stainless steel refrigerator in the kitchen. When requested, silverware and plates were brought up without blinking an eye or even mentioning rules about outside food - if they didn't want outside food in those rooms, I would imagine the working ovens and microwaves would have long been removed to discourage people from reheating last night's leftovers.

    Housekeeping at The Cosmo was subpar at best, especially for a One Bedroom Terrace Suite (they should care about all rooms equally, but if the more expensive rooms are being given the shaft, heaven help those in a standard room). There was a blue plastic cup under the couch from a party I suspect was there from opening night, and a Cheeto (there when I checked in) lay in plain sight on the floor under the kitchen table for most of my stay - I left it there on purpose to see if housekeeping would remove it, and of course they never did. My daily housekeeping tips decreased as the days went on. I have stayed in suites at Bellagio, VDara and Aria and the service I experienced at those properties has always been fantastic. The same cannot be said for what I experienced at Cosmo. The room was nice, but I am not a fan of The Cosmo.

    From what I heard and saw going on in many of the other rooms (ie: rooms being used as big frat party venues) outside food being brought in is the least of their worries. From the terraces the smell of marijuana wafting up was thick and heavy a good deal of the time - management seemed to turn a blind eye to everything going on in that hotel, so I cannot see them tossing someone out for smuggling in a bag of potato chips.

    To the original poster - the VDara suites are very reasonable, much less than a Penthouse Suite at comparable properties. I have stayed in a VDara Executive Corner Suite and it has a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator (there is a spigot inside that dispenses cold filtered water), dishwasher and a Keurig coffeemaker. Housekeeping supplies you with the K-Cups daily (I always requested extra). There is a washer/dryer too.

    * Oops - just saw you went with The Cosmo. Well, hopefully you will have a better experience than I had. The hotel is nice, but the service...not so much. Also, there was nowhere to unpack clothing. I have never been in a suite with no dresser or drawers to put your clothing away! There is a trunk at the foot of the bed that they expect you to throw all your clothes in (very inconvenient to kneel there and fish through items trying to find what you need, mixed in with those of whoever else you are traveling with.) There is a closet in the bedroom with a couple of small built in shelves on one side, but not enough to put away everything you need for a trip that extends past a couple of days.

    Just advise the front desk that you require a fridge for medical reasons, diabetes medication, and they won't deny you. Ethical maybe but still your best bet!:cry:

    Almost all Vdara rooms have a mini kitchen with stove, full size fridge, microwave, and dish washer. IMO the Vdara City Corner Suite is the best room in town for the price.

    Lol, when i checked in at cosmo not only did the bellman bring up my booze i also made sure to ask the desk at check in that i was given a room with an empty fridge for personal use. Even the smaller rooms that only have a mini bar can clear their fridge for a fee so they can use it for personal use (i think its like 35bucks if i remember correctly).
