Last updated: July 14, 2014 at 11:15 am. Posted by in Las Vegas Hotels, The Cromwell. 7 Comments on The Cromwell Las Vegas: The Reviews Are In.


The Cromwell opened earlier this year and so far, it already delievered plenty of excitement. From ravishing rooms to unique, upbeat venues, visitors and locals alike already love The Cromwell. See why guests loves it so much and while you’re at it, you can also read our 10 reasons why we personally love this Las Vegas boutique hotel so much.

Here’s what guests are saying so far:



These aren’t your typical cookie-cutter hotel rooms and suites. Each room offers sleek furnishings with an elegant, vintage touch. We often fantasize in living in one of these because each room also feels like home. Book your room or suite now.

“Definitely a place I would return on my next visit to Las Vegas. The rooms were amazing and the shower was my favorite part of the room. The bed was very comfortable and I am a very picky on the mattress I sleep on. Employees were polite and friendly.”

Welcoming hotel attendants

At the Cromwell, you’ll truly feel like a star with its top-notch concierge service. Each hotel attendant makes it a priority to make you feel at home.

“The staff were very comforting and informative, always conversation to be had from the front desk to the elevator attendant.”

“The staff was very helpful and friendly. The bellhop took our luggage to the registration and to our room. He even showed us where the free breakfast, snacks were available. There are free freshly brewed coffee and tea on the lobby when we arrived on our floor, which I find very cool since I’m a big coffee drinker. They even have breads and stuff there in the morning also.”

“We have never been treated so well. We were made to feel special and not just like a number. Everyone asks your name and then addresses you by your first name. They take the time to explain the details of your room and what the hotel has to offer.”


From its large retractable windows boasting beautiful views of the Strip to authentic, mouthwatering Italian dishes, it’s no wonder why Giada De Laurentiis’ first-ever restaurant, Giada is an instant hit. Whether you’re looking for a juicy steak, pasta, vegetarian or a gluten-free dish, the celebrity chef caters to every diner. Some of our favorites include the pea pesto tortellini, bucatini (calabrian chili pomodoro with fresh ricotta) and the soft, cake-like lemon cookies from the dessert cart – delightful. Tip: If you’re vegan or dining with vegan friends, the pomodoro pasta sauce can be made without dairy. Eggless pasta is also available. Need more convincing?

“Outstanding food experience including the outstanding service by Radoslav, the Bulgarian service expert. They need to work out a few kinks, but 6 stars would better describe the experience.  Guards actually sat with us for a few minutes!  Of course that’s Giada that sat with us.”

“Had an amazing experience and had Giada in person as a host. She is not only beautiful but so extremely sweet!. Food was out of this world!. Dates and bacon a must!!! Had the salmon, incredible and finished with a selection of gelato and coffee for a perfect evening! Highly recommend this place.”

Drai’s Beach Club Nightclub

Clubbing on a rooftop with a view right in the heart of the Strip? It can’t get any better than that! Drai’s Beachclub Nightclub has both daytime and nighttime experiences. Come during the day and soak up the sun and take a dip in the refreshing pool, or feel the pulsating energy at night and dance to live DJ music. We love the birds-eye view of the Bellagio fountains across the street. If you rent a cabana or daybed on the second level, you also have the luxury of a quieter pool area with less crowds. If nighttime swimming is your thing, Drai’s Tuesday night Yacht Club party runs until 5 a.m.! Discover even more about Drai’s luxurious details.


“My new favorite party pool! It has the best view of the strip and is perfect for soaking up the vitamin D. The Drai’s lemonade was my favorite cocktail and the food was delicious. Definitely better than your average party pool. The DJ was awesome, bottles were popping & people were dancing in the pool! Such a great atmosphere and everyone was having fun.” 

“With party pools popping up everywhere these days,  Drai’s is hands down the place to be.”

“You can’t beat the view from the rooftop! Day or night, nothing compares. The cocktail servers are all beautiful girls but give excellent guest service and everything that’s served is top quality.”

Gaming experience

Sure, you can play anywhere on the Strip. But here, it’s downright beautiful. With ornate chandeliers and golden touches throughout the floor, it feels more like one fancy party. The Cromwell has all your favorite table and slot games, as well as a reserved gaming space and a high limit room. You’re also steps away from two unique bars – Interlude, a secluded non-gaming lounge overlooking Drai’s After Hours and Bound, the open lobby bar steps away from valet.

“The casino looks so pretty and new and the staff was amazing. We played Crazy 4 Poker for a couple of hours and had Stephanie and Cassandra as dealers. They were both very outgoing and fun and they made us want to stay at their table.”

“The atmosphere in the Casino is unlike any other. It was perfect for me, large enough to have many options and small enough to feel personable.”

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love hitting up all the city's vegan spots, having staycations and catching shows by my favorite musical acts. Since I've ditched rainy Seattle 20+ years ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas hotel and entertainment articles for, the LA Times, Frommer's and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me hanging with my two girls, along with our shih-tzu and tiger cat.

  1. I think the dates are wrong in this article – memorial day weekend is in MAY not March. thanks

    Here are a few things to get excited about for the Memorial Day weekend opening:

    Wednesday, March 21: All of the stunning Cromwell rooms and suites are available for booking.
    Friday, March 23: This marks the opening of Drai’s Beachclub · Nightclub. Famed DJ Showtek spins

    Thanks for the clarification! We really appreciate it. It’s already fixed and live.

  3. I hope they honor their promise and properly provide total rewards for all the hotel venues including Drais pool and beach club as others as the the cosmopolitan have done with Marquee.
    Otherwise the incentive to stay and utilize the facilities will not be a seller.
    Also after spending over 5k at the Drais this weekend, I have not heard from the Cromwell regarding any incentives.
    I don’t gamble, so I choose this property versus Their other properties such as Caesars.
    I do spend at the clubs and pool and get rewarded at theCosmoploitan and the Wynn/ Encore.
    The hotel is amazing, I love it. I hope that the Cromwell will make it worth my while to stay in the future.

We hope you have gotten a chance to check out Giada and visit The LINQ/High Roller as well!

  5. Thanks for sharing your info. I really appreciate your efforts and I

    Hi, I have two sons that are 12 and 18 and would like to know if Cromwell allows children, not in the casino, but in dining area and of course the room. Thanks. Wayne

  7. Emma Trotter

    Hi Wayne, thank you for reading, I would be happy to answer. Yes, the Cromwell allows children in both the room and the hotel’s restaurant Giada. Giada De Laurentiis even developed a special healthy kid’s menu if you need that as well.
