Hoping for some insight from everyone here. I've been to Vegas a few times since 2004 and stayed at MGM, the Sahara, Bill's Gambling Hall, and the Trump. My husband and I recently booked a trip for early January 2017 and sprung for a room at the Cosmopolitan as it's our 5 year wedding anniversary. We don't have comps, we are low rollers who primarily bet on races in the sports books so Cosmo feels lavish to us. We booked a plain old 'City Room', which doesn't have the balconies everyone raves about. We know there is a chance we'll be offered a paid upgrade (our trip is January 12-16), and we are considering the $20 trick for a view or upgrade, or might pay for it anyways. My question is: has anyone who is scared of heights stayed in a balcony suite at the Cosmo, and if so, what were your thoughts? I'm terrified of heights beyond belief and am questioning if getting an upgrade will be worth it. Do the balconies feel safe? I don't want to pay for an upgrade if the balconies feel scary to other people who are scared of heights too.
