The Cromwell, the new Las Vegas hotel, is set to welcome its first guests beginning May 21, 2014. Guests can now book reservations online at www.thecromwell.com.
With its prime location on one of the busiest intersections of the Las Vegas Strip – one that welcomes more than 20 million passersby each year – The Cromwell Hotel and Casino will offer an exceptional luxury Las Vegas hotel experience in an intimate boutique hotel setting:
Owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, The Cromwell is a US$185 million renovation and re-imagination of the former Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon. Architect, Leo A. Daly and Las Vegas-based design studio, Tandem Las Vegas, designed The Cromwell to blend vintage with modern. One of the most noticeable exterior features is the black Parisian-style awnings and ornate black railings, repurposed from the original structure, punctuating each room window. From the moment guests enter the Porte Cochere, they will be intrigued with the luxury appeal and whimsical details of The Cromwell.
Impressive barrel-vaulted ceilings will pay homage to the original design while beautiful custom chandeliers will reinstate an original element of the nostalgic Bill’s resort. A warm palette of red, gold and browns will fashion the sexy, intimate Interlude bar and lounge. Inspirations for Bound, the lobby bar, draw upon a vintage Parisian parlor featuring bookshelves with leather-bound books and eclectic embellishments. A stop at a 1940s train station inspired the retail shop with high vaulted wood-planked ceilings, leather strap wall details, newspaper print-inspired tiles, and clusters of suspended birdcages.
The 169 standard accommodations will evoke a residential feel with distressed hardwood flooring, vintage luggage and trunk-style furnishings. Custom photographic artwork by the acclaimed Deborah Anderson will evoke a sentiment of allure. Adding to the whimsical motif are black-and-white mosaic-tiled showers with playful English-French phrases adorning the walls.
To accommodate the 6,039 square metre rooftop pool and nightclub, two floors were added to the top of the existing structure. Additional structural support, which doubles as an elevator leading up to the rooftop pool and nightclub, was also added to north side of the building. Two oversized, elevated pools will be centralised within the outdoor space, lined with daybeds, cabanas and VIP bungalows. Additional VIP areas will offer secluded options with prime Strip views, a private pool and additional VIP seating.
Adding to the prestigious Anthology Las Vegas Suites & Villas collection, The Cromwell will introduce 19 impressive suites, available for guest booking. Suites range in size from 67 square metre, up to the 237 square metre Cromwell Suite and are strategically positioned for guests to enjoy great views of the Las Vegas Strip from multiple vantage points. All suites are equipped with a full-size refrigerator, wet bars that can be stocked based on guest preference, steam showers, Toto Neorest toilet system and deep soaking tubs.
Set to open Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday 24th May, Giada De Laurentiis’ self-titled restaurant, GIADA, will greet guests with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, al fresco dining and a beautiful exhibition kitchen showcasing fresh pastas being made daily by hand and a signature antipasto bar – a first for Italian eateries on the Strip. Located on the second story of the boutique hotel, GIADA can accommodate 260 guests and showcases automatic retractable windows boasting prime views of the Bellagio fountains, Caesars Palace and Bally’s Grand Bazaar Shops.
The menu will embrace De Laurentiis’ Roman heritage, mirroring her passion for Italian cooking with vibrant, Californian influences. GIADA will utilise the freshest ingredients to create a new, lighter take on the traditional Italian cuisine, while staying true to classic favourites. Signature dishes include Lemon Spaghetti, Eggplant Rollatini, Marsala Herb Chicken Meatballs and Lemon Ricotta Cookies.
Also welcoming beach life and nightlife enthusiasts beginning Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday 24th May, Drai’s Beach Club • Nightclub and Drai’s After Hours will set the new standard in entertainment/nightlife experiences with a stunning rooftop pool, day club and nightlife venue. Drai’s Beach Club • Nightclub will elevate the Las Vegas day and nightlife scenes with a stylish, spirited pool experience.
