Can't speak for SLS or the W. It is at the far north end of the strip and have never ventured that far up. Cosmo is a great location as it is mid strip. The Wynn/Encore is as far north as I'd stay on the strip. Can't speak for the rooms, but the casino and the talent parading through the lobby is great for people watching.

Cosmo is nice, been 5 times in the last 2 years for work and fun. Although upgrades to suites have never happened in my experience as a Platinum and Platinum Premier. You'll most likely get an upgraded view of the Bellagio fountains instead of the city view.

Oh okay. I'll have to check it out.

Also what are your thoughts on the W Las Vegas or SLS
