5 Reasons We Can't Wait to Visit Las Vegas's First Boutique Hotel
When you picture Las Vegas, you probably see ginormous hotels that have thousands of rooms and are perhaps shaped like fairy-tale castles or the Eiffel Tower. Well, a new player on the Vegas Strip may change your image.
The latest lodging to open there is minuscule by Sin City standards: At a mere 188 rooms, The Cromwell is the first boutique hotel to plant its flag in the gambling capital of the universe. But that’s not all it has going for it. There's a super-luxe pool-side nightclub, Rat Pack–quality sips, and Giada—ridiculously gorgeous cookbook author Giada De Laurentiis’s first restaurant.
Giada De Laurentiis’s First Restaurant
Yes, she’s pretty enough to be a spokesperson for Clairol Natural Instincts, and we so want to hate her. But Giada is that warm and lovely mix of girl-next-door and super-chef, someone with whom we want to break bread and swap beauty tips. Her fab big resto Giada seats 300 in its lounge, terrace, and dining room—and every seat gets a killer view of those iconic Bellagio fountains. Wondering what to order? Try Italian classics like lemon spaghetti, chicken cacciatore, or marsala meatballs.
