New Luxury Resort at the Heart of the Strip Showcases Design, Amenities and Attitude Crafted to Appeal to the "Curious Class"

LAS VEGAS, December 17, 2010 - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the highly anticipated luxury resort at
the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, officially opened its doors to the public
at 8 p.m. on December 15. The evening's festivities included a first-look
party for invited guests which included an exclusive three-song set from The
Killers front-man and Las Vegas native Brandon Flowers, a dining taste-around
at the P3 Commons restaurant neighborhood and a peek at the resort's retail
boutique collection. Just before the doors opened, the traditional ceremonial
first bet was made by musician Mayer Hawthorne. In a first-ever innovation
for the legendary Las Vegas entertainment scene, the opening-night concert
was simulcast on The Cosmopolitan's marquee, meaning passersby on the Las
Vegas Strip were be able to watch the concert live on the 65-foot-tall
LED-display marquee.

imaginative resort's world-class design, architecture and construction team.

anything that exists right now in Las Vegas," says John Unwin, CEO of The
Cosmopolitan. "When you combine spacious suites, high design from talent like
David Rockwell, a carefully curated award-winning dining collection,
unparalleled service and gaming, we know guests will enjoy an experience that
harkens back to an era when guests felt connected, inspired and engaged by
their resort."

Situated at a desirable center-Strip location, The Cosmopolitan's
uniquely vertical multi-tower design on just 8.7 acres of land boasts
sweeping views of the Las Vegas skyline, allowing guests to feel that they
