Using Cosmo Fridge

Hi,

Are you able to fit your own stuff in the Cosmo fridge, was planning to go over to Walgreens and get some drinks.

Thanks!

There is not a lot of room at all, We had enough for some 3 small mini bottles of wine and couple museli yogurts that's about it. They can remove the contents for I think $25 so you can use it.

Not really no.

As above though, you can get items removed or I think you can get an additional one from concierge.

not sure about Cosmo but we asked for an extra refrigerator at Encore and had no problem getting it since the room's minibar was full,

2 different things : "Fridge" and "Minibar". The minibar isn't meant for guests to store their own items. In a lot of them ,just jiggling or moving stuff around will result in sensors thinking you've consumed the item(s), and you'll end up with a surprise charge on your room bill and a hassle when you check out to convince them that you didn't eat/drink the stuff.

If you're looking for a way to store your own drinks you can arrange a fridge when you check in, or some people just buy a small cool box ("cooler" in the US) in the Walgreens.

Which room are you staying in? Terrace Suites & Wraparound Terrace Suites have full size fridges with a freezer compartment that has more than enough room for you to put your own items in without disturbing the minibar. The other room categories have the smaller fridges, where it would be hard to squeeze your items in.

As someone previously said, you can empty out the fridge for an extra $25.

The Bottom of the "Minibar" is an open area with nothing in so you will not disturb any of the items above it as i said it is actually a freezer

Burnie noted about it freezing items in the bottom and shes 100% spot on about this., this is ok if you takin out soft drinks when wanting to walk the strip s they are extra iced, but be careful in bottom rack with alcohol, unless you like frozen slushies!

We stayed there once and moved a couple beers to the freezer section not knowing they'd burst. We put our stuff in their place. Upon checking out we told them what had happened and weren't charged for the beer.

This makes me wonder about the legality of charging guests for minibar items. I mean, they leave soap and shampoo in the room as well as the minibar stuff, but don't charge extra for it. Anybody know?

There is a $25 fee for them to remove all of their items from the fridge , you can then use it for your personal use
