The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, an independent luxury brand opening December 15, 2010, has announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Marriott International’s Autograph Collection. The Autograph Collection is composed of independent upper-upscale and luxury hotels and resorts.

The Cosmopolitan will become the Autograph Collection’s first Las Vegas member resort, first casino resort, and largest property.

The Cosmopolitan will also be featured as a partner hotel on the Ritz-Carlton Web site as part of the Marriott brand family.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is centrally located on the Las Vegas Strip. The vertical, multitower resort features large, residential-style living spaces with private terraces. The Cosmopolitan’s amenities include a 100,000-square-foot casino, Sahra Spa & Hammam, three pools, and 150,000 square feet of convention and meeting space.
