What are the things I NEED to do at Cromwell?
- Hit the Tables: Cromwell represents one of the better gambling destinations on the Strip as game odds remain somewhat player friendly. Play single zero roulette, not only is it a dying breed of game, more and more casinos are moving to the triple zero variant that gives the house a much larger edge. There isn’t a 6/5 blackjack game in sight either – Keep it up Cromwell.
- Enjoy a Pool Day: Eleven stories up, the roof deck pool is not only stunning in its own right, it’ll give you a fantastic vantage point from which to view the Las Vegas Strip.
Is Cromwell in a good location?
I honestly don’t think location could be better. Cromwell is tucked between Flamingo and Bally’s and is a short walk to Caesars Palace and Bellagio across the street. If you are feeling stingy and a bit adventurous, check out Stage Door casino behind Cromwell for $1 Michelob Lights. Employing Cromwell as your Las Vegas home base will put you within walking distance or $10 Uber/Lyft of most Strip destinations.
Unique Transportation Options at Comwell:
- The Las Vegas Monorail can be employed at the neighboring Flamingo property. Just hop into Flamingo and follow the signage to the rear of the property where the monorail picks up.
- Uber and Lyft will drop you off near the rear of the property where cabs would traditionally drop off. To be picked up, go to the side entrance near the rear of the property on the Flamingo side.
Our take on the Cromwell Las Vegas property:
As a resort that isn’t “mega” in nature, Cromwell is a bit of an anomaly on the Las Vegas Strip. Cromwell preserves the great gambling experience that has always been provided within the bones that used to provide support to Barbary Coast and Bill’s Gambling Hall. If you are looking for a freshly renovated, stylish middle/upper tier room option in a great location, albeit not a budget option, Cromwell could be a great option. Additionally, due to the small scale of the property, you are not generally waiting in long lines for check in, elevators or other wise battling throngs of people.
Ensure you get a lower level room if you are in town for work, or prefer an early bed time, as the upper floors are notoriously loud until 4am when the rooftop party comes to it’s conclusion.
If you can still party until 4am, I have a significant amount of respect for you.
