The Cromwell, part of Caesars Entertainment’s portfolio of hotels, is the only true standalone boutique hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Cromwell, which was recently named a Top 10 Best US Casino by the USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice, has recently launched a slew of player-friendly games in the 40,000 square-foot casino. From single “0” roulette to EZ Baccarat to 100X odds on craps to 3-2 shoe and double-deck blackjack, making playing at The Cromwell one of the best odds to win big in Vegas.
The new player-friendly gaming amenities are as follows:
Single “0” Roulette: Also known as European roulette and previously found primarily in high-limit areas only, The Cromwell now has this table game on the main casino floor with approachable table limits.
EZ Baccarat: Played the same way as traditional baccarat, EZ Baccarat is among the most popular baccarat games worldwide. While the drawing rules are unchanged, EZ Baccarat eliminates the taking of the 5% commission after every winning Bank hand.
3-2 Shoe and Double-Deck Blackjack: With affordable table limits among the lowest minimum bets on the Strip, blackjack at The Cromwell brings back classic Vegas gaming.
100X Odds on Craps: For those who like to roll the bones, the casino now offers a super-generous 100X odds on craps with accessible table limits.
The Cromwell also has a brand new 50-seat sportsbook. Featuring state-of-the-art technology and picture-quality, the new book includes a 32-foot-long by 9-foot-tall LED video wall and a 9-foot-by-5-foot LED odds wall with ticker capabilities to see scores and updates from a number of vantage points throughout the casino.
In addition to the new and enticing table gaming options, The Cromwell has also recently introduced a greater variety of slot games, including all the latest and greatest and The Abbey, an all-new high-limit slot area.
A new fast-casual dining option, Eatwell, is now open, offering great food round-the-clock, as well as an enhanced bar and lounge, Interlude, with great drinks and free live entertainment.
The Cromwell is part of Caesars Entertainment Total Rewards, which links over 40 casinos worldwide. You earn Reward Credits (they don’t call them “points”) through all the usual ways but you can also earn credits through hotel stays, gift shop purchases and almost any activity on the property as well as through the Total Rewards Marketplace and Total Rewards Alliances.
There are four tiers of Total Rewards membership and all members upon joining immediately enjoy Gold status (tier) benefits at all casinos. Platinum status begins at 5,000 credits, Diamond at 15,000 and Seven Stars at 150,000 all accumulated within a calendar year, all earning greater benefits at each higher level.
On most slots $5 coin-in and $10-coin-in on most video poker equals (at least) one base Reward Credit. Some higher payback video poker machines require $25 coin-in for one tier credit. Some machines have lower earn rates and these games are clearly marked.
One hundred Reward Credits equal $1 in comp value. Using credits for free slot play is based on your tier status. It takes 125 Reward Credits for Seven Stars, 175 for Diamond and 200 for Platinum and Gold to equal $1. Reward Credits expire unless at least one is added every six months. They can be used for most anything in the hotels including rooms, dining, shopping, shows, golf, spa treatments and more. You can even use them to buy into the official World Series of Poker.
In addition to earning regular tier credits, players earn gift points that can be used at an annual holiday shopping event held every November/December in Las Vegas.
The Cromwell brings an exclusive, luxury lifestyle hotel experience to the Las Vegas Strip, focusing on hospitality, amenities and personalized service. It is the first hotel in Las Vegas to offer mobile key technology for digital, keyless entry to rooms via the guests’ iOS devices.
Located on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, The Cromwell keeps it intimate with 188 rooms, including 19 suites, a personalized virtual concierge service named Ivy, a 40,000-square-foot casino.
There is a hotel lobby bar, casino lounge featuring live entertainment, the award-winning GIADA restaurant, 24-hour fast-casual restaurant, Drai’s Beachclub/Nightclub and Drai’s After Hours.
