The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has started taking reservations for its Dec. 15 opening, the resort announced today.

The 2,995-room, 50-story resort-casino between the Bellagio and CityCenter is planning a soft opening in December with a grand opening celebration on New Year’s Eve weekend.

Prices on opening night start at $300 for a 620-square-foot studio with a 110-square-foot private terrace, and peak at $510 for 1,200-square-foot, two-bedroom suites with a 480-square-foot private terrace. Rooms are marked "sold out" on the resort’s calendar for Dec. 30 through Jan. 1.

After the grand opening rush, weekday rates start at $125 and weekend rates start at $195 through May, according to the rate calendar on the Cosmopolitan website.

Few details have been released on the bank-owned resort since Deutsche Bank foreclosed on the 8.7-acre development in 2008, but a newly launched website gives a glimpse into what kind of amenities the resort will offer.

According to the Cosmopolitan website, each room will include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, microwave, Samsung plasma TV and “amenities not found in your typical Las Vegas luxury hotels.”

The rooms at the Cosmopolitan, which once were intended to be condos, each will have a private terrace, unique from other Strip resorts that barely allow guests open their hotel room windows.

Cosmopolitan’s chief information officer, Marshall Andrew, was tight-lipped at the Gaming Technology Summit in Las Vegas last month about what technology the resort would be unveiling, but said Cosmopolitan is using technology to create a “wow factor.”

Like its neighbors Aria and Mandarin Oriental at CityCenter, Cosmopolitan’s in-room technology will feature a central remote controlling all of the room’s devices.

“They are going to have more features and functions,” Andrew said of the Cosmopolitan rooms. “Aria kind of laid the groundwork. A lot of us went over there and stayed in the rooms to check it all out. We saw things that we liked, but we saw things that we could improve upon, and that’s what we’re working on right now.”

Cosmopolitan’s website also indicates the resort will have a 43,000-square-foot spa, 100,000 square feet of gaming space, 60,000 square feet of retail space and 11 restaurants, many of which will be led by celebrity chefs.

Keeping up with the current daylife and nightlife trends on the Strip, Cosmopolitan will house three separate pools, one of which will be an adult pool, and a nightclub by the Tao Group. Details on the nightclub haven't been released.

Deutsche Bank is spending $4 billion to complete the Cosmopolitan for its the December opening.

As of this month, 315 condo-hotel units remain under contract with buyers who opted out of class-action settlements to get their deposits back, a spokeswoman for the Cosmopolitan said.
