Cromwell Las Vegas Deluxe Room Review 2015 Beds

The dual queen beds sit against a giant button pleated burgundy headboard. Each bed features four pillows and a somewhat ugly and definitely useless houndstooth print bolster pillow. The mattresses are brand new, pillow tops with crisp linens and soft duvets. All were spotless. For the most part, I slept well on the bed. I woke up once in the middle of the night because the temperature in the room was quite warm. I adjusted the thermostat to drop it down a few degrees and nothing happened. No quick cooling, no fan, no discernible temperature change. I went back to bed and eventually fell asleep to the low throb of the nightclub until around 5am, when I woke up again - not to some thunderous dropping of bass at Drai's, but instead the opposite - silence. The throb that had been rocking me to sleep ceased, and my eyes were wide open. I didn't expect this.

Front desk? Can you turn the that throb noise back on? I can't sleep.
Cromwell Las Vegas Deluxe Room Review 2015 Nightstand

Between the beds is a small nightstand, built to look like a classic luggage trunk, right down to hammer tacks and leather handles. A retro-industrial Steampunky pierced metal lamp with a dim vintage filament bulb was the only source or reading light in the room. Also on the table is a bronze note pad holder, phone and cradle for the remote control.

Cromwell Las Vegas Deluxe Room Review 2015 Radio

On the alternate side of the passenger side bed is a small table with a retro radio made by Crosley. I barely noticed it was there due to the darkness of the room. I love the trippy violet and mallow hues of the paisley wallpaper.

Thanks for the review. So you fell asleep to the gentle rhythm of Oontz Oontz Oontz. I wonder if your room got an average amount of noise from Drai's or if other rooms get it worse?

I've stayed at the Cromwell three times once in a standard room and twice in suits. I really like the property but could never accurately describe the decor. Chuckmonster, you did it in one sentence and it's why I enjoy your observations immensely. "has a quasi-French feel, but with nods towards antiquity". Perfect...

I'm kind of fascinated by the hotel corridor's carpeting. And I love the retro-look furnishings that still offer modern amenities.

Are dogs sitting on literal thrones the new shatphones? If so, me likey.

I was just getting ready to write this: "How did Big C get this hotel room so right, yet allowed Flamingo to become so wrong?" when I read your page 14 and answered my own question. We all better enjoy these rooms while they last.

Having the bathrooms on the outside wall has two horrid effects - first the lighting issue (exacerbated by the wall outside!!), and secondly the beds end up way too close to the front door and corridoor - you must be able to hear every noisy douchebag that walks outside!

I will pass at those prices...

Started off with Bill's Doody, now the Bill's Booger..... ahhh I mean Cromwell.

Ah, Vegas needed french tradional contemporary wh*rehouse styled hotel rooms. This room fits the BILL WELL. I actually like it, it has some nice touches for sure. Pity about the booger on the wall and the roof overhang from hell. There is always tradeoffs when trying to reno an aging property to today's expectations, and that roof top pool cover is a doozy. Then having the bathroom on the outside wall, its no wonder its dark in there. Maybe they thought dark would be charming. Or mask better when they don't clean the room very well. Great review!

Cool room. More than I expected, I guess.

Thanks for the review. Gave me a much better perspective of this property.

I'm definitely diggin' those burgundy headboards & paisley wallpaper!

Very nice review, I do love how your review style comes through so strongly in these reviews and grows the more you do them, a very entertaining read, from someone who has read a few too many reviews in his time.

Awesome review, I appreciate you calling it as you see it. You're obviously not a vodka drinker but the minibar was impressive and more inline with true 5 star properties outside of vegas.

I like the decor. It's different enough and appeals enough to my dark sadonistic side that I kind of want to stay here. I just wish they wouldn't have done the quotes in the shower and in the carpet. I hope they fired whoever's idea that was - It ruins the vibes for me.

@captain thanks! i'm a drinker of everything and see that they've got 'the good stuff' in there. you are right that vodka isn't my first choice, but i love it just the same.

Great decor but cant get over the fact that the bones of that place (low ceilings, small rooms/bathrooms) are outdated.

One wonders why the SLS rooms could not have looked like first glance, a lot of the interior touches would have worked better at that property...

With a CVS across the street at T-I, and an ABC Store across the street from Monte Carlo, you'd have to be beyond lazy to pay $6 for a Pepsi...
