    We stayed at Cosmo on our last trip for the first time and got engaged in there, actually. Coincidentally (not) our upcoming trip will fall on the same date next month so I was thinking about making the 1 year anniversary a special case for my fiancee (i.e. make sure I get laid) by getting a bottle of wine/champagne for us (mostly me) to enjoy upon arrival.

    Now the Cosmo website site has stuff like "Arrival Champagne and amenities" listed in there. I was wondering if anyone had dealt with this before and knew how this works or more importantly how much is it? I know that the most of you have a host to deal with these requests but for a measly low roller such as myself, that's sadly not an option.

    Do I just fill out the form and write "Better have some Veuve in that room when I get there or else shit is bound to go down". Or am I just better off going to CVS/ABC to get one? While that sounds cheaper and easy, I'm pretty sure I'll end up not doing it after the joyful 20 hour trip for door to door.

    FWIW: Here's the link to the page I was checking out.

    Concierge service for something like that is probably less useful than seeing if you can get it delivered by a local liquor store, but if I cared about making sure it happened, I'd just pay them the money and not worry about it. The markup won't be insane, but likely substantial. The concierge is a lot more useful for things you can't easily do yourself, like taking care of harder-to-get reservations (I remember at Bellagio, the Jasmine weekend brunch used to hold back a number of seats just for the concierge department).

    I'd probably give them a call to find out details, because "champagne" is pretty generic. After all, Presidential includes champagne with some of their limos, but some people find it damn near undrinkable. If you want to make sure you get something nice, I'd try to talk to them about what it would cost, and then just pay it. Some things aren't worth haggling too much over.

    Agree with 44 - if you want ease and a guarantee that it'll be in the room, I wouldn't rely on the form. Phone the Concierge and ask oabout whatever fits for you.

    "Do I just fill out the form and write "Better have some Veuve in that room when I get there or else shit is bound to go down". I love it. Seriously.

    Bring a bottle from home! Once you get there fill up a bucket with ice, add some cold water and salt and the bottle will cool down real fast. Oh don't forget to give it a few spins.

    Since you save a little bit of money by doing this i would suggest putting some of it towards exchanging the Veuve for a bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs.

    There is nothing wrong with a bottle of Veuve as long as its a brut imo. Go with what you like and prefer, i just happen to prefer blanc de blancs over blends. Also not a fan of the sweeter bottles. The Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is great champagne and you will have to spend some serious dough to get a better one imo.

    Also come to think of it, Cosmo has a small bottle of Veuve at the mini bar unless I'm misstaken.

    I'm seeing Ruinart Blanc de Blanc Champagne Brut for $80 at my local. Is that worth bringing over or just get one from Vegas?

    I was curious about this so I called them. They emailed me the list of what they can provide. I attached it. Also since they don't know your room before you check in, once you check in, they send a message to room service to bring it up. The lady I talked to said it could take anywhere from 1-4 hours depending on how busy room service is.

    If you want champagne right away, my advice is to stop along the way and grab a chilled bottle. Cosmo prices seem way high too.
