Default Puppy in a Multi-Dog Household

I will be bringing home Tynan (my new pup addition) tomorrow. I will be crate training him while I am at work.

My question is:
My current dogs are put in the laundry room while I am away at work. The laundry room is quite large and spacious. They have their own crates in there which they can go in and out of on their own, as well as their dog beds and many blankets (since it is vinyl flooring, it can get cold in the winter)
The puppy will not have free roam of the laundry room until he is older and housetrained.

Should I put the pup in his crate in the laundry room with the others so they get used to eachother or would it be more suitable to place the pup in a different room until he is more comfortable with his new home?

I'd suggest keeping him crated in a different area for the first few days or week at least... and maybe watch how the other dogs are with him crated and then if all is well, move him permanently into the laundry room.

The other dogs might hassle him or scare him. I'd just take it slowly.
