The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has always offered a lot to recommend: Cool nightlife, some of the best cocktails in town, fantastic rooms with balconies (a rarity in Vegas for obvious reasons), and, just for good measure, a spinoff of STK with a DJ.

Plus, its accommodations can be limiting for guys who're used to staying in comped five-star villas that come with English butlers.
