Caesars Entertainment officially announced today that the former Bill's Gamblin Hall and Saloon on the Strip will be named The Cromwell according to a story published by Vegas Chatter (VC). Bill's has undergone extensive renovations since February 2013 and was originally slated to become the Gansevoort, but the partnership between the hotel company of the same name and Caesars fell through late last year.
The Cromwell features 169 rooms, 19 suites, a 40,000 sq. ft. casino, a restaurant with a Strip view from Giada de Laurentiis, and a big-deal Drai's Nightclub and rooftop pool entertainment complex. According to VC, only superficial changes to the original Gansevoort guest rooms will take place prior to the opening.
Caesars indicated that initial bookings / reservations will be accepted for Total Rewards members on February 21,2014. The general public will be able to book rooms three days later according to the report. The parent company indicated the new Cromwell will open "in the spring"...we'll see.
Now everybody can relax and rest easy since we now know the name of the property that was once Bill's. All self-respecting Vegas visitors will assume a rabid state until we can crash the doors when it actually opens.

Cheers...watch your hands and flip-flops
