The CEO of the new $3.9 billion Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas casino says it will open in mid-December with about one-third of its rooms delayed until July 2011.

It is likely to be the last major new casino-resort likely to open on the struggling Las Vegas Strip for at least a few years.

Even before the Cosmopolitan plays its first hand, executives and analysts say it must draw new customers who feel it is a must-see draw to Sin City.

Cosmopolitan CEO John Unwin said the hotel's amenities, including 13 restaurants, a spa, nightclub, 150,000 square feet of meeting and convention space and retail stores, would open in mid-December with the casino and the bulk of its 2,995 rooms.
