    I am intrigued by the Cromwell too. I walked through it and it is very nice inside. It was so dead though. I think there were like 3 people playing. I'd be interested in hearing more about the property myself.

    I had a chance to visit one of the rooms on our last visit (went up with a friend so she could change her shoes). I kept hearing the word "boutique" hotel. Whatever that means. The hallway to the rooms were dark but interesting. The room itself was decorated nicely with a huge 72" flat screen on the wall. It was a double room and it was very modern with wooden floors and purple decorations and "naked but tasteful" ladies on the walls, but it was tight. The bathroom was also on the small side, but very modern. The people I visited had moved over from the Flamingo and said the rate was the same price and if that's the case -- I'd say it was worth it. They really disliked the Flamingo room they had. I do not know what rate they had, just that they had a basic room.

    My feeling is that is a really nice place that caters to a younger crowd, it just had that vibe to me. That being said that is probably why that bathroom would not work for a stay with my husband (we are late 40s) -- no way -- too small. It's probably smaller than a standard Hampton Inn bathroom.

    I did like the casino! Hard to get lost in that one! And Giada's restaurant there was very delicious.

    Stayed there in September. Rooms are dark and sleek. I'm a big fan of the furniture. Rooms are a little tight as it the washroom area. Hotel staff are fantastic. Another poster said it best that it is geared towards younger guests. The casino lacks more dining options but there's tons of options around the property.

    Regarding the level of activity/play in the casino.......as in many casinos, club traffic brings in gaming activity. There is more than enough club traffic to keep the excitement high at the tables on weekends and sometimes midweek.

    Agreed. There are no situations I have observed where room rates were anywhere close to prices at Flamingo or similar CET properties. CET generally prices Cromwell at or just below Nobu. Methinks your friend exaggerated ever so slightly......

    Well, I guess she did then -- just looked it up. Hmmm... We'll, for that rate I don't think it's worth it. Yea, it's pretty and great location on the strip, but not enough to offer. And those tiny bathrooms (no door separating the commode). For a solo trip it might be just fine...

    I've been there once. It is too. damn. dark.
    Looks like it was remodeled to be the same old dingy hotel with less sticky floors.

    I've walked through the casino floor several times. I have yet to play there since everytime I pass through it, albeit during the day times, they were pretty quiet. Yes it is dark, but definitely not dingy as the old Bill's. I actually like the place minus the perfumey smell but different and not as heavy as venetian. Just wondered how the rooms were since I've never stayed there nor it's previous incarnations. As many have posted, figured that the rooms would be tight since it is just a tiny casino/hotel. I did find room report youtube links and they appear to have balconies facing the bally's side?! can anyone confirm?

    Stayed there for three days and loved the location and the staff. Also very appreciative of being able to get the free, very good coffee in the morning.

    I had no problem with size of the room or the bathroom for the two of us. I prefer a smaller room to a ridiculously large one.

    The location in relation to the CET casinos is perfect. Their own VP is horrid so we didn't play there. Likely won't get an invite back because of this. Just walked along the strip and played in CEt hotels.

    My biggest complaint was the lighting. They need to put in some stronger bulbs so you can see. Add some lighting in the closet.

    There was some street noise, not terrible. In hot weather season, the party noise may change this.

    Off season, I'd stay here again.

    We stayed there in Thanksgiving. The casino is very nice and they have excellent drink service if you are playing the games. Trouble with VP as someone said is that the pay tables are very poor.

    It is impossible to read in the room (be it a newspaper or book) at night as there is no lighting...can't even move a lamp if I wanted to. The service is very good, but it was irritating that the ice machine is being a locked door with the concept being you call the staff and they deliver. That sounds great unless it is 2am and you don't want to wait.

    The free coffee at the elevator was nice, but there is no where to grab any type of breakfast (a bar, fruit, donut, etc) anywhere on property. Also, for our entire stay, only one elevator was operating although the waits were not that long, I think, because they were not near full.

    AM entertainment consisted of watching the kids staggering around after a night of partying at Drai's....quite a site and probably great opportunities for youtube videos.
    If we wanted to be in that vicinity, there is no doubt we would choose Ballys/Paris or go across the street and pocket the savings. I guess we can say we have stayed there, but could not recommend to anyone else unless it was comped.

    Well, I vote for a darker place to begin with. Something about it I like and I think they did a VG job with the footprint they had to work with. The folks there (in casino) and excellent, very friendly and fast. They impressed one from my first walk through. Can't speak for room, no experience. On down side, VP not too good but I would still visit there because of the staff and again, I like that darker environment......
