I’ve stayed at Crockfords several times now and enjoyed all of my stays. You can find a full review of the property here and another review focused on a room here. I was in Las Vegas again last week and spent two nights at Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts. This time I was upgraded to a One-Bedroom Entertainment Strip View Suite. It was lovely and way more space than I needed just for me. The room was booked under a Hilton Impresario rate. This gave me free breakfast, a $100 food and beverage credit, and perhaps this upgrade.

Resorts World has been my choice for lodging multiple times since it opened in summer 2021. The resort features a mall, casino, theater, tons of restaurants and bars, a spa, and seven pools for three hotels: Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World (review here), Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World (review here), and Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts. Until 2007, the property had been the Stardust Resort and Casino. The current complex cost $4.3 billion and is a gorgeous space to visit or stay.

Anthony’s Take: I had checked in online and when I went to the desk to get keys there was no mention made of my upgrade. This was a pleasant surprise and makes me want to try to book more Hilton Impresario rates in the future. I loved having breakfast, a $100 property credit, and more included at a rate that was the same as booking on

Crockfords Booking


As mentioned, the room was booked for me through my company on a Hilton Impresario rate of $259 per night plus taxes and Daily Resort Fees. The Daily Resort Fee is added to all reservation at a rate of $50 plus tax. This includes Wi-Fi; smart TV casting ability; 10% off spa or fitness retail; 5% off spa or fitness treatments; 5% off cabana experience; 5% off 2 pool chair experience; unlimited local and toll-free calls; Access to 7000+ top newspapers and magazines from over 300 countries using the PressReader app. Had I booked the rate through, it would have actually cost $37 more.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

I took a taxi from Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) to Crockfords. The approximately 4.4-mile trip took around 16 minutes and cost $28 plus tax and tip. Las Vegas taxis are now metered by zone. I took an Uber Premier to the airport when leaving and that also took about 20 minutes and cost $43.


As mentioned in past reviews, the hotel is located on the north end of the strip. It’s a bit quieter over here versus the other end near Mandalay Bay. You’re a quick walk from lots of other casinos as well as a short ride to anything else you’ll want to see. I was able to check out the new Fontainebleau since it’s a short walk away.

Crockfords Key


I arrived around 11:30 PM and was immediately assisted by an agent. I had booked a City View Superior Room – 1 King, but was upgraded to a City View, One Bedroom, Entertainment Suite (in Crockfords West, which is in a separate tower that’s shared with the Hilton and it has its own elevator bank). The agent did not mention the upgrade and I was surprised when I opened the door. He provided me with a letter that outlined the benefits of Hilton Impresario and I had my keys a moment later. I knew that I’d also receive 1,000 points as an amenity. With keys in hand, I made my way to the Crockfords West elevators and the 62nd floor. I wish Crockfords still gave the cool keys above (these went away last year).

Crockfords Hallway

The tower also houses the Hilton, but the elevators are designated just for Crockfords West (it occupies the upper floors). You need to walk down a long hallway to reach the elevators.

Once there, the elevators were speedy. A separate, small lobby is here for Crockfords West guests. I never saw anyone there during my stay.

FUHU Dinner

I had the Spicy Hamamon, Traditional Roasted Half Duck, and Spicy Duck Noodles. I was stuffed and so happy with this meal.

Overall Impression: Resorts World is a beautiful destination and Crockfords is my favorite of the three hotels here. Its understated elegance, quiet lobby away from the casino floor, room comfort, and the amenities are all excellent. I can’t wait to stay again.
