At last, Las Vegas has a boutique hotel to be proud of. Designed by David Rockwell, and with Spanish super-chef Jose Andrés at the stove, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas sits pretty between the Bellagio and CityCenter. Check-in from 15th December and experience in-house artists, state-of-the-art suites (some with breathtaking balconies) and three pool areas, including one overlooking The Strip. New Year’s Eve is by invitation only and will include live performances by Jay-Z and Coldplay – not too shabby! The newest – and hottest – kid on the block.
