The Cromwell is the first standalone boutique hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, which means it offers a lot of cool, interesting perks that you might not find in other bigger hotels. The hotel has just 188 rooms, so it feels intimate and exclusive. It also means a lot of attention has been paid to all the details that make the property so unique.

If you’re staying at The Cromwell – or just stopping in – there are some insider tips and can’t-miss deals you should know about and we’re happy to share.

10 secrets of The Cromwell Las Vegas Hotel

Curios gift shop at The Cromwell Las Vegas hotel has many unique gifts to bring back to your friends and family

1. the gift that keeps on giving

Sure, most hotels have a gift shop where you can buy a Las Vegas T-shirt, a shot glass, or a toothbrush if you forgot yours. The Cromwell has a gift shop, but it’s not your typical shop. Curios is as unique as the hotel itself.

You can tell this is an unusual shop by its décor. It’s a beautiful space with vaulted ceilings, wood and leather accents and newspaper print tile floors.

Inside, you won’t find cheesy souvenirs, but you will find gifts that people back at home will actually be happy to get. We’re talking candles, flasks, vinyl records, notebooks, coasters, Papaya stationery and Tokyo Milk bath products. You’ll also find unique jewelry, accessories and sunglasses. If you’re hungry, there are gourmet snacks and delectable chocolates.

2. did someone say free?

Think you can’t get anything for free anymore? Think again. At Interlude, you can listen to some pretty awesome live entertainment for free.

The recently enhanced lounge is a great place to socialize, drink some cocktails and enjoy the music. Hours are Sunday to Thursday, 2 p.m. – 2 a.m.; Friday – Saturday, 2 p.m. – 4 a.m. Live performances start at 4 p.m. (Saturday at 8:30 p.m.) and go through the night.

Be sure to check out electric DJ violinist Marlon Dasoul every Friday, 11 p.m. – 3 a.m. and Saturday, 9 p.m. – 3 a.m.

3. C’mon get Happy at Happy Hour

Any happy hour is great, but we think the one at The Cromwell is one of the best in town. Stop in to Interlude for daily happy hour from 6 – 7 p.m. and you can drink Ketel One martinis and Ciroc cocktails for just $1 each.

Don’t worry if you don’t make it for the $1 drinks. There’s an extended happy hour from 7 – 8 p.m. nightly with $5 cocktails and $3 beers, which is still a pretty good deal.

6. Power lunch

You know Drai’s Beachclub is the place to party by the pool in the summertime, but did you know you can grab a delicious lunch there too? We’re not talking standard poolside snacks, we’re talking a full menu of really good food.

Drai’s Café is the perfect spot for a poolside nosh. The menu can be enjoyed at a Strip-side table or from the comfort of a cabana or daybed.

Breakfast favorites include a breakfast burrito, a caramelized pineapple and coconut yogurt parfait and omelets.

For lunch or dinner you can start with chilled shrimp ceviche or avocado toast. The menu also offers salads, sliders, sandwiches, hot dogs and flatbreads.

For a refreshing treat, try the half watermelon, sliced in cubes and served in its shell, garnished with berries and citrus wedges.

Drai’s Cafe is open Mon. – Thur. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Fri. – Sun. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

7. lock it up and throw away the key

If you’re into the latest technology, you’ll appreciate The Cromwell’s eKey. The mobile technology allows guests to enter to their hotel room using their iPhone. All 188 rooms are enabled for the convenient electronic key in lieu of a traditional hotel key.

In order to use the eKey, you download the app and register prior to your arrival. Guests who opt to use eKey will receive a link to download The Cromwell App from the Apple Store and an access code tied to their iOS device and reservation. Once the app is downloaded and a personal identification number is created, guests can access their room simply by placing their iOS device next to the lock. It’ll also display your room number when you need it and you can control access to the key by setting your own PIN. The eKey also activates hotel elevators.

8 hey IVY, hey

Another cool piece of technology at The Cromwell is Ivy, a real-time text messaging platform that can assist you 24/7.

After check-in, guests who have provided a cell phone number for their reservation receive a welcome message from Ivy encouraging them to text her with any questions or requests.

It’s basically like having your own personal digital concierge at the touch of a button. Ivy can book dining reservations for you. You can ask her what time the pool opens. You can ask her for more towels in your room. The average resolution time for guest text messages is less than one minute.
