The Cosmopolitan's restoration to its previous glory is an elegant and charming place to stay! We loved staying within the historic park. As all the other reviewers said, you can either eat in the hotel restaurant or take a short walk to others.
At night we sat on the balcony overlooking the courtyard, listening to the music down below.
We had a nice breakfast of homemade scones and jam, juice and coffee out on the same balcony, while soft music played in the courtyard.
And if you are a Victorian or Old West re-enactor, they encourage you to dress in the period (1869 through 1888 for this hotel) which is a lot of fun if you love talking to others and having your picture taken! Stores in the historic area offer discounts if you are dressed up.
This was a truly relaxing stay and we will visit again. I understand that Room 11 is HAUNTED with residual sounds (boot steps, children's voices, etc) although it has an obstructed view if that's important to you.
