Take a different kind of tour of Sin City, one full of ghosts, ghouls, and everything haunted. With US Ghost Adventures, you’ll never see Vegas the same.
The Cromwell is a boutique hotel and casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s not as exclusive as the Luxor, as opulent as the Venetian, or as packed with incredible shows as the MGM Grand. So, what is The Cromwell known for in a town of grand hotels and casinos?
Officially, as of 2020, The Cromwell has opened its doors as an adults-only property.
When all the hotels closed for COVID-19, the Cromwell closed too. It was a hard time for business on the strip. But when they all opened back up, the Cromwell did too, but not in the way it was before. It reopened as an adults-only property, making it one of the raciest, most risqué spots in a city known for pushing the envelope.
That’s what made the Cromwell notorious, but Las Vegas historians will tell you that’s not what makes the land at 3595 South Las Vegas Blvd. infamous. It’s the pronounced presence of ghosts and unexplained phenomena.
Formerly known as Barbary Coast, and before that known as Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall and Saloon, The Cromwell is different from any old haunted house.
Usually, ghost hunters use instruments like EMF meters and dowsing rods to lure shy ghosts out of their hiding places. You may see an apparition, witness objects levitate or fly across the room, and feel sudden bursts of cold spots.
You don’t need any of that fancy equipment to have a haunting experience at the Cromwell. All you need is a working brain and the will to set foot inside.
Visitors frequently report what feels like haunting hallucinogenic experiences within the mind, but not necessarily before the eyes.
Visitors on higher floors of the Cromwell have reported sudden, intrusive thoughts telling them terrible things. Guests have reported becoming overwhelmed out of nowhere by suicidal and self-harming thoughts.
Once they let the thoughts clear, visitors realize these thoughts weren’t their own.
Others have reported scratching sounds coming from inside the walls, like someone or something dying to escape.
While one pair of guests slept on the third floor, they reported hearing scratching sounds starting at one end of the room and working their way closer. By the time it got to behind the headboard, they began to hear soft cries.
That incident was enough for these guests to pack their bags right there and then and high-tail it to another hotel.
But if you’re a lover of all things unexplained, you’ll feel right at home at the Cromwell.
