    I stayed at Cromwell last week for 3 nights. No club/pool noise (but I was there during the week), my room had a nice view of the Bellagio fountains at a bit of an angle, rooms and shower are awesome, service is great, great elevator service, coffee deal is convenient and I thought very tasty. Things I did not like: door closing noises from the hallway in the wee hours, late afternoon maid service, and the pool (not a good scene for 50 year olds, no hot tub, pool water very cloudy on a Monday afternoon).

    Did you notice if they have a free continental breakfast still?

    My review of The Cromwell: Taxi from airport $20 with tip. A representative from the hotel met us at the door offering to take our bags, wasn't necessary for us as we each only had one bag. We proceeded to check in which was somewhat strange considering the text message I received after getting off the airplane stated all we needed was room keys since we checked in prior to leaving Pittsburgh through an email we received from The Cromwell. But no harm done. Received our room #707 an they had a representative take us to our room. He showed us how the room keys worked for the elevator and our room. Once entering the room, yes it is a slight bit on the small size considering we are used to the Resort Rooms at PH. But the rooms are very very nice. The rep continued to show us some things like where the room safe was (in a dresser drawer), how the 2 headed shower worked, slippers and bathrobes in the closet (you can take home the slippers), and the infamous 2 way mirror. I truly do not understand why you would install a two way mirror in a 2 queen room, odd to say the least. I have already recommended to the pit boss that I have come to know well that all they need to just put a curtain rod and a nice drape to pull if you are not interested in looking at someone naked in the shower. The view out the window sucked. It faced The Flamingo, you could see a little of Caesar's, but we also could see the large pillar directly in front of us, so crap view. But I spend very very little time in the room so I really don't care much. We stayed from Fri thru a Wednesday and never heard any noise from Drais, so was happy about that, though weren't in the room until probably 3am most nights. I did run up to the room one evening to grab something around midnight and never heard any noise. There is not a continental breakfast, and no longer coffee on each floor of the hotel, but there is coffee at the 1st floor elevator in the casino, which is good enough for me each morning and truly was a nice to have while playing early slots before everyone else was ready fro breakfast. As we discovered in September, the staff at The Cromwell, from pit bosses, to dealers, to cocktail waitresses were all AWESOME. So would I stay there again......probably yes. The convenience of being right in the middle of all the Caesar's properties and the short trip to the strip were all a big plus.

    Haven't stayed there but it has definitely become my favorite casino to play craps.

    The service and personalities of the cw's has been outstanding and the table staff is knowledgeable and personal as well.

    Looking forward to playing there again in a few weeks!

    So you can see into the bathroom?

    As I'm traveling with my bro...I don't think we will stay there.

    Thanks, I try to do a lot of the rooms, because people like to do research and many times it's hard to get a good idea of what rooms are like from photos. I am also lucky enough do to my Diamond status and ADT to get rooms some folks will never see, so I try to share as best I can

    Thank you engicedave!! We will be there in August. Noticed the mini bar fridge and cabinets- can you ask them to remove the liquor and munchies so we can put our own stuff in the frig and cabinets? You may have said that in your video but my sound is not working.

    Not that I know of, but you could certainly push the munchies to the side....I guess same for other stuff....I know a guy comes and does inventory, I saw him once, so if you move it, maybe leave a message as to where it's been moved to so an inventory can be done. The stuff did not seem to be on a sensor

    Great video! This makes me even more excited for our trip! Those rooms look gorgeous and well, sexy. :wink

    steelcity5044- great review! We are a couple so the two way mirror does not bother me but I can definitely see how it would be an issue if it were not a couple sharing a room. I do not have high hopes for a view but we actually paid less for the luxury with a "view" than the deluxe with no "view". This gives me hope that we will not have a noise issue with Drais but I may pack some ear plugs just in case. lol

    Definitely no sensors. They told us when showing us the room.
