This Week’s MtM Vegas Video

My wife and I recently completed a stay at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas to see if the hotel holds up after being sold to MGM Resorts. We’ll talk why Cosmo has the best rooms in Vegas, some of the unique aspects of staying there and whether or not anything has changed under the new ownership. Is Cosmo still Cosmo?

In other news we learned that Vegas casinos have reported record earnings for the 2nd quarter. MGM, Caesars and Wynn all reported very strong earnings with MGM setting record numbers. We also discuss new 50 foot showgirls coming to town, a Top Golf competitor, why the current Bellagio display is the best, $35 Korean BBQ on the Strip & how a local restaurant owner is going to jail for not reporting sales.

  1. Its all cyclical so I hope they enjoy it while they have it!
    Vegas is not recession proof
    MGM can ruin anything with greed and poor upkeep

  2. One property owner says to another, “In spite of no housekeeping, filthy rooms, and denial of tier benefits, none of these idiots are leaving and we have record profits. Why should we change?”
