- 188 rooms and suites

- Bound, the hotel lobby bar, will serve barista-style coffees and morning pastries, and then transform into a nightcap destination
- The hotel bar and lounge, Interlude, will have a centralized location and close proximity to nightlife to serve as a social-inspired gathering place featuring cutting-edge mixology

- Sprawling day and nightlife venues, Drai's Beach Club • Nightclub and Drai's After Hours
Owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, The Cromwell is a $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 influences. 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.
Barrel-vaulted ceilings will pay homage to the original design while custom chandeliers will reinstate an original element of the nostalgic Bill's resort. A warm palette of red, gold and browns will highlight Interlude bar and lounge. Inspirations for Bound, the lobby bar, draw upon a vintage Parisian parlor decorated with 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 and vintage luggage, trunk-style furnishings and custom photographic artwork by Deborah Anderson. Bathrooms will have black-and-white mosaic-tiled showers with playful English-French phrases adorning the walls. PetStay rooms and suites will be available, providing pet-friendly accommodations for guests travelling with dogs under 50 pounds.
To accommodate the 65,000 square-foot 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 centralized 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.
The Cromwell will introduce 19 suites ranging in size from 723 square-feet, up to the 2,550 square-foot Cromwell Suite. All suites are strategically positioned for views of the Strip and 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, Giada De Laurentiis' self-titled restaurant, GIADA, will offer al fresco dining and an exhibition kitchen showcasing fresh pastas being made daily by hand and a signature antipasto bar.
GIADA can accommodate 260 guests and has automatic retractable windows with views of the Bellagio fountains, Caesars Palace and Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops.
The menu will embrace De Laurentiis' Roman heritage with Californian influences for a new, lighter take on the traditional Italian cuisine. 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 will be Drai's Beach Club • Nightclub and Drai's After Hours. The new venues will offer a rooftop pool, day club and nightlife venue.
