    Hey all-
    Hoping to get some advice from the experts here. I have a stay booked for late Dec at Cesars comped, but just saw that I could book Cromwell for the same time frame also comped. I have gambled at both but not stayed at either. It will be a solo trip, mostly for relaxation, drinking, and gambling. I mostly play craps and LIR, rare slots and VP, some BJ. FWIW the room I have booked at Cesars is a Palace Tower Deluxe. Cromwell I could get a Luxury room or a Deluxe room.
    Thanks in advance!
    Drew

    I like the fact that the cromwell has 100x odds on craps, but they only have 2 tables and usually just one open. Caesars has lots of craps tables and you can move around if you want to to find a better table.

    Rooms at the Cromwell are small and on the dark side. Only one restaurant on the property. Ceasars is the better overall property.

    Crom: Not much there, but quicker out to the strip and off to other places.
    CP: Lots more to the property, more nude statues!

    You can tell what's important to me here. I can't comment on the rooms, though!
    Best wishes!

    The properties are not comparable really. One (CP) is big, crowded, a lot more options for gambling, dining, shopping etc. Cromwell is much smaller, easier to get around but with fewer options for gambling/eating but much easier to get to your room and the strip. The Cromwell rooms are all new but smallish and on the dark side. So it really comes down to what is important to you. I personally don't think either is a bad choice.

    Funny, I see people say CP is crowded a lot but it's mostly people walking to and from the forum shops. That is a constant flow but staying there, never have much of a problem get a table or machine. I don't find it any worst walking around as it it going between Bally's and Paris.
    As for which one, CP is nicer and Cromwell a better location.

    What matters to you?

    For me, it's all about the things that you can't access unless you are a guest. I can gamble and eat anywhere regardless of where I'm staying so the casino and restaurant options mean almost nothing to me in choosing a place to stay. That leaves me with room, pool, and location as the things that me and my wife usually choose based on. Our next trip is coming up in two days and it's one of our shortest so we are staying at The Cromwell so we can get in and out of the room quickly and not waste precious time and the location is obviously great.

    On a "normal" trip for us which would be more like 5 or 6 days, we'd be more inclined to stay at Bellagio, Mirage, or Wynn and maybe squeeze in a night or two downtown.

    The Deluxe room at Cosmo is no big deal. You have two entirely different props and experiences here. I say stick with the Caesars room as the small dark (but nice) rooms don't equate to the freebie you have at CP. It is a nice little luxury to get from your room to the strip or the casino in about 15 seconds but otherwise not a lot would compel me to pick the Cromwell.

    Just stayed at Cromwell for the first time a few weeks ago, as I had a weekend comp offer there. I decided to take advantage since I rarely get it comped on weekends from the rate calendar alone.

    I liked the property enough and would stay again. Rooms are a bit small but not tiny, nice furniture, awesome shower. I like the casino too. And it might literally be the absolute best location on the Strip, especially when you consider how fast you can get from your room to the Strip, given the small casino floor.

    That said, I've stayed at CP in the Augustus Tower before and would take that over the Cromwell. I just prefer the larger resort-style property over the small boutique concept, but both are nice.

    Thanks for all the thoughtful replies! I think I will stay with the Cesars room based on the advice here. I was leaning that way anyhow, but then TR offered something behind door #2 so why not consider it right? Thanks again for the help!
