    Cromwell review:

    Pros:
    Service with a smile (everyone that works here is super friendly & helpful); great coffee on each floor; nicely appointed rooms; huge TV; quality bar contents; lovely freebies for soft opening (champagne, food gift basket in room); nice showers (rain & regular); firm, but comfy beds

    Cons:
    VERY small rooms (no place for suitcases!), poor soundproofing between rooms (person next door playing music at what seemed to be a reasonable level & could hear very clearly in our room), tiny bathroom (single sink, no drawers), 2 way mirror (could be Pro or Con :)) view into shower could get them in trouble (not obvious unless lights are off in the bedroom; slots stink (worse than other CET properties) only played about an hour

    No. Unfortunately it is a faux Rapunzel balcony. That was one of the first things I asked the valet when he was showing us the room features.

    A couple of additional Cromwell pics (I was having issues posting yesterday)

    2 way mirror (view into shower?!)
