For my West Coast blogger trip, Veronica and I flew round trip into Las Vegas and decided to split our time into two nights in Vegas on the days of our flights. On Wednesday night we stayed at the Cosmopolitan, which is located right in the heart of the strip. The Cosmopolitan is my favorite hotel in Vegas since it is the newest. We were on the 55thfloor and had a view of the strip. The hotel had a fun casino and great restaurants as well as a great pool which we laid out to catch some sun.
We drove 5 hours to Page, Arizona, to explore the canyons from Thursday – Saturday and then drove back to Vegas for Saturday night.
Saturday night we stayed at the Aria, which is right next to the Cosmo. I did not love this hotel. It felt much bigger and a bit more of a mixed bag crowd. The casino was huge and the pool area was also much bigger. We had dinner at Jean Gorge Steakhouse, which was amazing, and I highly recommend eating there if you want a filling meal. One of the aspect of the hotel that I did not care for was the room. It felt very old with a gross feel to the bed.
In Las Vegas we ate at the Rose Rabbit Lie at the Cosmopolitan for dinner which was a very lively restaurant with a live jazz performance during dinner. The food was very good here too I ordered shrimp scampi and we started with brussel sprouts.
We also ate at Jean George Steakhouse at Aria, which was delicious. I had a 6 once fillet minion perfectly cooked and we ordered sides of truffled mac and cheese and crispy potatoes
