Apologies if this is in the wrong thread. I just spent the weekend in Vegas (Fri-Sun) at the Cromwell and wanted to share some thoughts.

First I want to say it an excellent property. I typically stay at the Cosmo and Aria and I found the property to be competitive if not superior (Very different).

OK for the craps players

- Standard 3-4-5 max odds
- Field Bet Pays Double on 2 and 12
- The fun part.. $10 tables are standard (even at peak times Friday and Saturday nights) and even in middle of Friday night there was a $5 table open (vs Cosmo which only had $25 dollar tables)

Other tables... I think there are mix of 3/2 and 6/5 blackjack tables

Highly recommended Giada's (you get preferred bookings for dinner as a guest... book in advance as it is not the easiest table to get in Vegas). Also highly recommend "Bound" the bar downstairs.

Please note, this is a small, boutique hotel. I would not recommended for groups with children or who require "quiet" environment. With the nightclub in the hotel, there is always a low level "buzz" to the place (even in your room to extent... but I didn't find it off putting at all). There's a fun energy to the place.

Pros
- Small hotel, very personalized service
- Giada's and bars are top notch (they compete toe to toe with any of the MGM comparables)
- Excellent minimums on craps tables
- I hear Drai's (the nightclub) is excellent but just didn't have time to hit that (I hear hotel guests get preferred access)

Cons
- Not the most quiet place (Its literally in the center of the strip, and it's roof is a nightclub)... it's certainly not loud but its not the center of tranquility either
- If I had kids, I would go another direction
- Only one restaurant (but not a big deal, its next to Caesar's and Bellagio)... and it's an incredible restaurant

I think this is my new go to place. I like the mix of low table minimums, top notch service and excellent food/drink.

are there 3/2 tables? I just remember walking down the line, seeing a bunch of 6/5 and promptly leaving soon after

Most were very attractive and they were from foreign countries they were very nice and personable.

I even remember one was talking with me and BBB for a while. and then the rest of the group.

Great report, very detailed with a lot of information! It sounds like (and I hope) you had a great trip.

When I was there last October they had ALLLL 6/5 blackjack. Unless there was another pit I missed, or it was high limit room only (didn't see a high limit room but I didn't do too thorough of a search), I didn't catch any 3/2. Clearly this could have changed in 7 months though =p. The place did look pretty new and flashy and I can confirm had a good party/fun vibe to it.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I can also concur that drink service is excellent, the drinks were actually flowing way too easily (Based on my Saturday hangover lol).

The servers / dealers are also excellent all around.
