A coworker approached me this morning stating she is planning a trip to Vegas. Upon plenty of arm-twisting from a couple of her friends, she is keen on booking The Cromwell. She asked what I thought of the property, its location, dining options and the fun factor. I admitted to her I have not stepped foot in the place since it was Barbary Coast so I cannot speak to its current state. I also told her of the in-between stage of Bill's Gambling Hall. But I did encourage her to check out TripAdvisor and Yelp for reviews. I went to Yelp myself to see what people are saying about The Cromwell. Reviews run the gamut, but I gather they did absolutely nothing to the core of the building. It seems they only hung a few chandeliers, lowered the lights and hired surly bartenders/front desk agents. I have no problem with a property being a pig. But don't draw lipstick on it, call it a "boutique" and charge inflated room rates and $21 sliders at the pool. Is Cromwell considered CET's upscale property?
