The first stand-alone boutique hotel on the Las Vegas Strip will open on May 21.

Caesars Entertainment's 188-room property The Cromwell will have a blended vintage modern look, including a lobby inspired by a Parisian parlor.

Located on the far side of The Flamingo from The LINQ, The Cromwell's main features are the first restaurant by Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis, which will feature an outdoor patio space offering views of one of the Strip's top visual attractions, the Fountains of Bellagio. Nightlife will play a big part with the addition of Drai's Beach Club and Nightclub, a three-story, 65,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor nightclub and rooftop pool by nightlife impresario Victor Drai. The Cromwell will also have a 40,000-square-foot casino.

The Cromwell is the result of a $185 million gut renovation of Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon. It is located next to the Flamingo, on the far side of the new LINQ outdoor entertainment, dining & shopping district.
