Amongst the madness that is Las Vegas Blvd sits an old treasure re-designed, the old Bill’s Gamblin Hall has transformed into The Cromwell.

Arrival / Check-In:

When you check-in at the Cromwell you get a very personal experience. Our front desk agent walked us over to a desk and chairs where she checked us in via an iMac. Once we got the room keys, they had a bell man walk with us up to the room and explain the features, ins and outs and show us the overall layout of the hotel. This was a nice change since usually when you check into hotels in Las Vegas the experience is usually cold and rushed.

The Staff/Service:

The Cromwell staff were professional and polite. The manager walked our floor one morning and was inquiring if everything was to our liking. Overall the vibe was upbeat.

The Room:

Our room at The Cromwell was cozy but laid out well, they squeezed in a couch, 55″ inch TV, King Bed and Vanity Mirror. We were quite impressed with the overall design of the room. The room just feels expensive and a little over the top, that perfect Las Vegas feeling. The view we had of the strip was also great as we could see the Bellagio Fountains from our bed. IMG_1476

The Bed:

Our bed was really plush and inviting. You just seem to sink in as you lie there. The bed frame itself looked like a large trunk, and the headboard was made out of a vinyl material. The pillows where soft and overall the bed slept cool. Note: The frame of the bed does extend further out then the mattress which caused several bumps and bruises on our shins during out stay.

The Bathroom:

Behind the huge rolling barn door was a contemporary designed bathroom. Our bathroom featured a single sink with marble counter top, a separate room that had a toilet but there was not door, not sure why. The shower was spacious and had a really cool tile pattern with a quote on it. There is a 2 way mirror in the shower so if there is a difference in lighting you can see into it from the bedroom and vice versa.

Room Service:

Slow, Expensive and way overrated. The only thing cool about the room service was that you can order it on the tv. Giada’s handles the room service menu and we were just disappointed with her food. The burger was over-cooked and bland as was the $20 panini that tasted worse than an airport sub shop. Skip the room service and go elsewhere, actually anywhere else as this was one of the worst room service’s we’ve experienced.

Bars/Lounges:

Although we didn’t drink at the hotel we did hear a lot about the bar across from the check-in. Their mixologist is supposed to sling some serious cocktails.

 

WiFi:

The WiFi was included with the resort fees, which are mandatory.

Bottom Line:

Would we go back?
Ben: The hotel was cool and the staff was nice but since the casino is small and the pool area full of Pretentious D-Bags I’d probably go somewhere else. Also the food here was crap.
Sadey:  I really wanted to love The Cromwell… the room itself is beautiful but I really didn’t care for the casino. Also, the crowd that stays & plays here is more college aged which overall effects the experience, for example.. People sitting in the hallways, asking for drugs.

::TIPS::

-FYI you will be charged $20 per day for mandatory resort fees.
-Taxi’s are hard to come-by here, so we often had to walk next door to the taxi lane at the Flamingo
-Check-out the Bar across from the check-in area. Great Cocktails.
-Hotel is about 20-30 min cab ride from airport, so plan accordingly. Cost for the trip is around $35.
Check: In 3pm (but in Vegas, you can usually check in earlier)
Check Out: 11am (ask for late check out, sometimes they go till 1pm)
