The Cromwell sits at an ideal location on the Las Vegas Strip, right in the center of it all. It’s new, it’s done differently than the mega resorts, and it’s a good option for either the frequent or one-time Vegas visitor.
The Good Stuff:
– Location, location, location – literally across the street from Ceasar’s Palace and Bellagio
– It’s small (only 4 fllors of rooms), so it’s easy to get in and out, unlike the mega resorts
– Rooms are spacious and uniquely decorated with hard wood floors, very upscale dark-wood furniture, moody lighting, an awesome dual head shower with fun tile, very comfortable bedding.
– Deluxe rooms have a Strip view. But keep in mind that since the hotel is “low-rise,” the view will pale in comparison to some of the other hotels that are much taller.
– Although small, a very servicable casino with nice bars and great service
– Very easy parking or valet. Friendly attendants.
– Giada restaurant serves fantastic food and has nice views of the Strip. It’s VERY pricey and you’ll need a reservation.
The Few Drawbacks:
– Noise. One thing I immedately realized was that with only 4 floors of rooms, and the highest being only 8 floors from the street….I heard a lot of street noise coming from Flamingo, being on that side of the hotel. In a larger hotel, you’re nowhere near the street.
– Noise. I could hear an inordinate amount of hallway noise outside my room. Part of that could have been the obnoxious group of people staying across the hall who felt the need to hold full-volume conversations and yelling matches in the hallway. Even so, I could hear every word, every door open and close, footsteps…..ugh.
– Noise. My room was on the 8th floor, which is the top floor for rooms, and just below the popular Drai’s nightclub. While I wouldn’t call it overly disturbing, I could hear a faint thump thump thump of the music from the club late into the night.
– For a Vegas hotel, the vanity area of the bathroom is quite small and counter space is limited. The great shower makes up for it. But if two people wanted to get ready at the same time, there would not be enough space.
Overall, I really liked this place and I’m glad I gave it a shot. If you’re a light slepper, bring a portable sleep sound device, or download an app. That helped to address the noise issue for me. Rates at this hotel can be very high, perhaps the highest among the newer hotels, except for maybe the Ritz Carlton or Mandarin Oriental. Make sure you’re getting a comparably good price for the time you’re there.
