In accordance with directives from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and the Nevada Gaming Control Board, Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) ("Caesars" or "the Company") has resumed hospitality and gaming operations at The Cromwell on Oct. 29, as the final property to reopen on the Las Vegas Strip. The boutique hotel and gaming floor is now open seven days a week for guests 21 and over. Guests of all ages are welcome at GIADA, the award-winning restaurant of notable chef Giada De Laurentiis
This follows the successful reopening of all Caesars Entertainment operations on the Las Vegas Strip, including Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel + Experience and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. As previously announced, the Company has also reopened The LINQ Promenade, High Roller Observation Wheel, FLY LINQ and Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck.

“In addition to The Cromwell being the only standalone boutique hotel, it is now the first adults-only hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Senior Vice President and The Cromwell General Manager Ken Janssen. “We are thrilled to welcome our dedicated Associates back, and our guests can once again enjoy The Cromwell’s personalized service and unique amenities like the new Drai’s Lounge and GIADA, with enhanced health and safety protocols.”

While closed to guests, The Cromwell was home to the U.S. version of the international reality sensation, "LOVE ISLAND,” which filmed its second season at Drai's Nightclub sequestered in a “bubble” for five weeks over the summer. After finding love and receiving the top prize on the show, it was only fitting that season two winners, Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew, returned to Las Vegas to help reopen the boutique hotel and casino. The fan-favorite couple joined Caesars Entertainment Regional President Gary Selesner, and Senior Vice President and The Cromwell General Manager Ken Janssen, in a countdown to officially reopen the doors, which culminated in a spectacle of confetti cannons and cheers. Once inside, the "LOVE ISLAND” stars ceremoniously rolled the first dice at The Cromwell’s craps table.


Located on the bustling corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road – directly across from Caesars Palace – The Cromwell keeps it intimate with 188 rooms including 19 suites and has received the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Award for several consecutive years. The standalone boutique hotel also features a 40,000-square-foot casino with gaming offerings from single “0” roulette to EZ Baccarat to 100X odds on Craps to 3-2 shoe and double-deck blackjack, making playing at The Cromwell one of the best odds to win big in Vegas. Additional amenities include Bound – the elevated lobby bar, Interlude Casino Lounge, award-winning GIADA – the first-ever restaurant by celebrity chef and television personality Giada De Laurentiis and the fast-casual eatwell.
