Caesars Entertainment's Las Vegas Strip boutique resort will be named The Cromwell, the gaming company has announced. The former Bill's Gamblin' Hall, which was originally to become the Gansvoort Las Vegas, is expected to open this spring, with reservations going live on Feb. 24. The 188-room property will include a 40,000-square-foot casino, a hotel lobby bar, a lounge, the first restaurant from Giada De Laurentiis, and day and nightlife venues by developer Victor Drai. The Cromwell's design is inspired by the Costes Hotel in Paris, with black awnings and gold window fixtures on the building's exterior; the lobby will have a retro parlor look, complete with bookshelves and leather-bound books. The Parisian theme will carry through to the majority of guest rooms, which will have distressed hardwood floors and vintage luggage-motif furnishings. The hotel's signature restaurant, Giada, will accommodate 260 people and feature handmade pastas and an antipasto bar, as well as a private dining room for groups. The Cromwell's venues will include Drai's Night Club and After Hours Club, as well as the Beach Club, offering a rooftop pool.
