Caesars to reopen The Cromwell casino in Las Vegas


Caesars Entertainment is to reopen The Cromwell on the Las Vegas Strip next week, meaning just one of the operator’s properties in the city is yet to open following the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) shut-down.

The Cromwell closed its doors in mid-March in line with Nevada’s Covid-19 restrictions and is the only Caesars property on the Las Vegas Strip yet to resume operations.

It will welcome back customers on October 29, meaning the Rio, located just off the Las Vegas Strip, is the only Caesars property in the city yet to reopen.

The Cromwell’s hotel and gaming floor will be open seven days a week for guests aged 21 and over.

“In line with the boutique hotel experience, we are pleased to announce that we will reopen on October 29 as the first adults-only property on Las Vegas Boulevard, with a continued emphasis on our enhanced health and safety protocols.”

Caesars’ Harrah’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel + Experience and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino facilities have also reopened after the Covid-19 shutdown.

Nevada governor Steve Sisolak gave the all-clear for casinos to reopen at reduced capacity from June 4.

Confirmation of the latest reopening comes after Caesars this week announced that it had added Eldorado Resorts’ casino properties to its Caesars Rewards loyalty program, following the operators’ merger.

Eldorado acquired Caesars Entertainment Corporation in July for $17.3bn, with the combined business, having a portfolio of more than 55 casino properties worldwide.
