I’m in Las Vegas a lot and decided to check out a property that I have never stayed at: The Cromwell. This boutique hotel is located in the center of the Strip and provides easy access to all of the restaurants, casinos, shopping, and nightlife. As a Diamond member with Caesar’s Rewards, I got the room comped for the three-night stay.

Anthony’s Take: The Cromwell has a dark and sexy vibe throughout. It’s a small hotel with most of its footprint dedicated to the casino. The pool was closed during our stay. We did not spend much time in the hotel other than sleeping and having a delicious brunch at GIADA (review here).

Cromwell Luxury Room


I booked my Luxury Room, 1 King, Strip View a few weeks before check in on As mentioned, I hold Diamond status with Caesar’s Rewards and was able to get the room completely comped. The resort fee (normally $49.95 a day including tax) was also waived. The resort fee includes free phone calls, Wi-Fi, and access to the fitness center.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

We took a taxi from Harry Reid Las Vegas International Airport (LAS) to The Cromwell. It’s a 4.4-mile ride and cost $32 with tip.


The Cromwell is located next door to the Flamingo and across the Strip from Caesar’s Palace and the Bellagio. I generally prefer to stay across the street at the Bellagio (and love its location on the Strip), so the location is great here as well.

The check-in desk is located to the left when entering from the valet.

I checked in on my phone, but stopped by the front desk to pick up physical keys. The agent printed them without saying much and we were off to the room moments later. I was not expecting an upgrade as the hotel was not showing any rooms for sale when I checked online.

Cromwell 3

A desk next to the check-in area is reserved for the concierge, but this was not staffed at all during our stay.

Cromwell 4

The elevators are located down a hallway and through the casino.

The casino was not too crowded and has a Parisian feel.

Cromwell 5

The elevator lobby looked good, but one elevator was out of service during our stay.

The elevators are showing some signs of wear and need some TLC.

Cromwell 9

Our room was on the eighth floor. I liked the fun carpeting and wall coverings.

Cromwell 12

The hallways were dark, but clean.

Luxury Room, 1 King, Strip View (809)

There are 188 rooms and suites at The Cromwell. Our room was spacious and well designed with plenty of space (even if it is only 360 square feet).

Cromwell 16

A sitting area was immediately inside the room with a couch and table.

Cromwell 23

The king-sized bed is next to the sitting area.

Cromwell 18

A TV was mounted on the wall across from the bed. The vanity below the TV held the minibar, Keurig, and safe.

Cromwell 19

A Keurig was on the upper-right corner with coffee cups. Coffee and condiments were for sale.

Cromwell 20

Snacks were displayed across the vanity.

Cromwell 21

The minibar was located inside. There was no empty space for guest’s personal use.

Cromwell 22

The safe was located in a drawer.

Cromwell 24

Another chair was next to the vanity.

Cromwell 25

A makeup table and chair (with a light-up mirror) was across from the chair.

Cromwell 26

The wardrobe was next to the makeup table. It held a luggage rack, iron, and ironing board.

Cromwell 27

The room had a view of a wall. This is not what I consider a Strip View.

Cromwell 28

The bathroom was to the right of the window. It was spacious and well lit. I had a vanity, glassed-in shower, and separate room with a toilet.

Cromwell 29

The toilet room was also quite spacious. I like when the toilet is not butted up against the shower.

Cromwell 30

The bathroom had lots of light and plenty of towels. A bar of José Eber soap was next to the sink.

Cromwell 34

The sink itself was a bit worse for wear with chips and rust around the drain.

Cromwell 31


Cromwell 32

The shower had really nicely done tile work. It made it fun and added a nice touch to the bathroom. The water pressure and temperature were both good.

Cromwell 33

Small bottles of José Eber shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were on the shelf inside.

Public Areas & Amenities

The hotel has two restaurants (GIADA and Eatwell), the gift shop pictured above, a tiny fitness center, a night club, and the pool.


We loved brunch at GIADA and have equally enjoyed dinner there in the past.

Cromwell 35

The nightclub is Drais After Hours. Drais is the name of the pool/day club.

Cromwell 36

The fitness center is located near reception.

Cromwell 37

It’s very small, but does look out onto the Strip.

Cromwell 38

Towels were provided.

Overall Impression:

I wasn’t sure what I would think of The Cromwell. It’s a cute, boutique hotel that needs a little updating in some areas. It offers a great location and you can’t beat a comped room (this hotel seems to frequently be available).

You gotta nice room. My entire room was worse for the wear at that hotel. It’s so sad but Caesers properties in general are in rough shape. I think Paris is the best so far.

I noticed this place last week for the first time when I was in town. What used to be at this location?
