The Las Vegas Strip's First Adults-only Resort Is Set to Reopen This Week
The last resort to reopen on the Las Vegas Strip will welcome back visitors on Thursday, Oct. 29 — with a new twist. The Cromwell will become the first adults-only resort on the famous stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard.
Located across from Caesars Palace at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, the boutique hotel — run by Caesars Entertainment and complete with 188 rooms, 19 suites, and a 40,000-square-foot gaming floor — will only be available to guests 21 and older. The only exception will be the Giada De Laurentiis-run Giada restaurant, which will allow guests of all ages.
“The first standalone boutique hotel on the Strip, The Cromwell brings an exclusive, elevated lifestyle experience to the destination, focusing on hospitality, amenities, and personalized service,” The Cromwell’s general manager, Ken Janssen, said in a statement last Thursday. “In line with the boutique hotel experience, we are pleased to announce that we will reopen on Oct. 29 as the first adults-only property on Las Vegas Boulevard, with a continued emphasis on our enhanced health and safety protocols.”
As the coronavirus spread across the country earlier this year, Caesars Entertainment had shut down all of its North American properties in March. The company has since reopened other Las Vegas properties — including 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 — with COVID-19 precautions in place.
While this will be the first of its kind on the Strip, another adults-only resort, Circa Resort & Casino, is making its debut at the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas on Wednesday. It’ll be the first new casino built from the ground up in the area in four decades.
Concept branding for Las Vegas casinos has marked a new trend, as the Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas reopened as the first smoke-free resort on the Strip last month. While most casinos have non-smoking sections, an entire property hadn’t been implemented until then.
In a destination so dependent on tourism, Las Vegas has been struggling to veer its operations in a sustainable way mid-pandemic with step-by-step reopenings. While casinos started opening their doors again on June 4, the city's bars and lounges only reopened in September.
To try and draw visitors back to The Cromwell, Caesars Entertainment is offering a Halloween sale through Nov. 2 and a fall sale from Nov. 2 through 23 for select dates through Sept. 2021 with the codes SEMI20 and FALL20.
