I did not see a post here about this yet, apologies if I missed it.

I got an email from Caesars announcing ....wait for it...

The Cromwell, The Only Luxury Boutique Hotel & Casino on The Strip!

Does anyone else think that's a really dumb name?

I have relatives living in Cromwell Ct. so I'm used to the name. Most people think the town was named after Oliver Cromwell but it was actually named after a ship that was named after Cromwell. It's confusing and weird.

Yea, it's a dumb name for Vegas.

(it's a perfectly cromulent word)

I don't quite understand the concept of placing an "intimate" hotel at the busiest intersection.

They're downplaying the casino, so possibly they hope to channel into the success of Revel in AC.

It's been discussed on other forums.

I hate the name. Makes me think of a very posh hotel where old ladies sit around the lobby, drinking hot tea, pinkies out.

It made me think of the scene in Conan the Barbarian where Conan yells "CROM!!!!!"
