The Cromwell in Las Vegas Will Start Taking Rezzies on Feb. 24
Ever since Gansevoort Las Vegas was dismissed as the operator for Caesars Entertainment's new boutique hotel in Vegas (opening in the old Bill's Gambling Hall building), speculation on the new name has been running wild, with most folks, including us and our super sibling, VegasChatter, believing it to be The Cromwell. Lo and behold, today's announcement from Caesars, made moments ago on their website. Here are the details:
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 will feature 188 rooms and suites, a 40,000 square foot casino, hotel lobby bar, lounge, restaurant by Giada De Laurentiis and day and nightlife venues by Victor Drai.
Indeed, not much has changed from the original Gansevoort announcement, not even the purple-hued logo on the rendering. (Here's what the rendering used to look like.)
Not much has changed in the rooms either. The boutique hotel's design is still set to be a mix of vintage and modern, inspired by the Hotel Costes in Paris. Guest rooms will have distressed hardwood floors and trunk-style furnishings along with black and white mosaic tiles in the shower covered with English and French phrases. (You can peep some of those room renderings here.) The lobby is also planning to have bookshelves filled with leather-bound books. Books! In Vegas! So strange, we wonder who will pick one up?
Reservations for the property will open up on February 24th for stays sometime in the spring. Total Rewards members can start making rezzies on February 21st. Caesars promises to reveal the exact opening date towards the end of February. Ooo-wee!
