Do Cromwell rooms have refrigerators?

    We stayed there last year and our room did not have a fridge. I couldn't even find an ice machine and when I called downstairs to ask where it was they delivered me some ice.

    Thanks- an expensive room like the ones they have should have a fridge, which I need. Second thoughts about staying there now....

    looking at photos of the rooms.....notice some of the suites have full size fridges...not sure of the regular room and like Kobra said..reviews I read people had the same complaint. No ice had to ask for it to be brought to the room. in general the impression i get from the cromwell is rooms are nice but not worth the price they ask.

    Wow! This is the level of "offering the bare minimum" that hotels are offering now? I'd expect this from BW/Casino Royale, but not from a place that is supposed to be a high-end strip resort.

    It seems like higher end hotels are less likely to offer fridges. Best Westerns and similar usually have fridges and microwaves for travelers on a budget. I certainly appreciate having a fridge in the room, but a boutique hotel like Cromwell is usually focused on handling requests with personalized service, rather than having guests fend for themselves.

    Have you ever stayed in a high end strip resort or a high end hotel? Because what you are describing is not that common in Vegas.

    Go look at the base rooms at Aria, Venetian, Cosmo, etc. Do they come with a fridge that's not full of mini bar items?

    The average room on the Strip doesn't even have a coffee maker that you can use for free. Why? Because they want you to go downstairs and pay for it, just like they want you to do with drinks and food.

    They do have mini bars (without sensors). Before my last stay, I read that they don't mind if you move things around and add a few items. I kept a few bottles of water cold, and never had an issue. The Cromwell is a great place. It is fancy, but everyone there is just as friendly to the average Joe as they are to a high roller. The coffee/beverage machines on the fifth floor are a great touch also. You will never regret staying at Cromwell

    all Linq, Rio, Paris and Bally Jubilee rooms have fridges. Not Cromwell, but could upgrade to suite

    I was referring to the ice, actually. That, I consider to be a relatively basic amenity of most any hotel. The fridges and coffee machines, I know most places have done away with, yes. Doesn't surprise me that much.

    no, but they do come complete with a HUGE resort fee!
    now there is an idea. a resort fee should include a refrigerator, at least upon request.

    I stayed in a Luxury 2 QN strip room a few months ago and it had a mini bar in it. When I asked the front desk they said that the mini bar was not sensored and that technically, I could use it as a fridge. FWIW, I enjoyed my stay at the Cromwell

    I have a collapsible cooler that I could use in a pinch, but if ice isn't available, all bets are off!( I can't see asking the attendant to make three or four trips in a row for ice!)

    The ice machines are now in a locked room near the elevators. An employee unlocked the door for me and said they locked them up because guests were breaking the machines. Really? The Cromwell regular rooms have no fridge and very small, dark rooms. The rooms are really cool though. Probably not staying there again with all of the other great options in Vegas.
