We had checked in to the Cosmo last week Tuesday (6/13). Everything was awesome. They gave us a room in the Boulevard Tower. I've never stayed in that tower ever. And I've been there 3 previous times. The room was perfect. Straight in line with the Bellagio Fountains and not too high and not too low of a floor. The view was amazing! Here's a picture: We had dinner reservations and needed to get out. So we made our way to the elevator. When we pressed the button, the down arrow would not illuminate. Thinking it was an error, we waited........and waited....and waited. No elevator came. We went back to our room. Called the front desk and asked if there was anything wrong with the elevators in the East (Boulevard) Tower. The person confirmed that there was. Apparently, there was a kitchen fire in Jaleo and that had triggered something in the software to cause the elevators in that tower to go haywire. It was in a testing sequence as nobody could go up or down. This was 8:30pm. We finally saw some gentlemen (guests) coming from the service elevators. The gentlemen said that downstairs was a complete mess with people wanting to come up as well as go down. People had dinner and show reservations and were in a panic. Needless to say, we never made our dinner reservation. Had to opt to go across to PH to have some delicious Earl of Sandwich sandwiches. <---like my tongue twister there? Anyway, we came back and it was 11:30pm and the elevators were only partially working. My beef with Cosmo is that there could have been a little better communication of what happened. Of course, there are tons of floor and rooms to deal with. So not sure what they could have done to communicate with everyone who was stuck in their room. We took the freight elevator down.....just wanted to share what the area looks like, as I know many wouldn't even see this back of the house area on the daily.
