Fresh. Fun. These weren't the words associated with the Tropicana Las Vegas - A Doubletree by Hilton, a rare remaining Las Vegas landmark having opened in 1957. But they are now.Located on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue, this revitalized property sits at the southern end of the Strip and within walking distance to many of the city's large-scale resorts and favored attractions. Tropicana Las Vegas has embraced a South Beach-inspired theme, complete with a four-acre pool and beach club area. It even boasts a fresh redesign of every hotel room and suite.Tropicana Las Vegas currently has three unique dining venues that provide innovative eating experiences. Enjoy a  menu of Italian fusion cuisine at the trattoria Bacio, or tuck into perfectly prepared steaks and fresh seafood at the elegant steakhouse Biscayne Steak, Sea and Wine. Whether you're hungry for the basics or want to try something completely different, you'll discover both -- along with spectacular views of the pools -- at the Beach Café. Snack on sandwiches, slices of pizza, pastries and gourmet coffees at the South Beach Food Court.Guests can take in a variety of entertainment at the Tropicana. An area of white leather chairs and opulent red fabrics creates a classic Vegas experience at the Tropicana Lounge. Enjoy imaginative cocktails with sports broadcasts and live music provided there during the weekends. Tropicana Las Vegas also features the Laugh Factory Las Vegas, showcasing comedy's top stars as well as emerging talent. A treatment at Glow, A Mandara Spa is a relaxing experience. The décor here fuses beach, stone and jungle elements, which enhance the pleasure of traditional and contemporary health and skin care. Experience unique spa services that were developed to relax, rejuvenate and pamper the body and soul, such as the Sweet and Spicy Orange Body Scrub and the Bamboo Massage.After your heavenly spa trip, come back down to earth in the vibrant casino. Much of the gaming action takes place amid the tables that line the center of the white marble floor under the Tiffany stained glass dome, but guests will also appreciate the large upgraded race and sports book operated by CG Technology. With good restaurants, spa, a lagoon-like pool complex, wedding chapel and a 60,000-square-foot high-tech conference center, the Tropicana Las Vegas offers everything for singles, couples and traveling executives -- including that all-encompassing laid-back South Beach vibe.-- By Renée LiButti

good clean rooms at a reasonable cost
PostedJanuary 4, 2014
really enjoyed our stay. Our room was very clean & in good repair. We stayed in the Paradise Tower.
Only negative remark is that the food court isn't open for breakfast--beyond Starbucks.
Did not use the casino or pool, but both seemed spacious & clean.

What would a magician do when his act gets mixed reviews for having too much going on and too much filler?He'd make those parts disappear, of course.And in true magical fashion, he makes them re-appear as something much better.The recently revamped Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil brings out more of what Angel's fans have been clamoring for in the first place: magic.This production has seen some significant changes in response to feedback from guests and critics alike, and the end result is a highly focused and entertaining show.Criss Angel Believe takes his illusions and stage presence, combined with the flair and artistry Cirque is best known for -- with just enough of each to make fans of both happy.Although the magic acts in Criss Angel Believe form a loosely-connected narrative, this story is secondary to wowing the audience with illusions. From levitation to "how'd-he-do-it?" disappearances, Angel brings out all the acts he has made famous on "Mindfreak" and then some, along with some more traditional illusions with an added "Mindfreak" twist to them.From the theater itself to the set pieces used during Angel's performance, the whole atmosphere is dark with gothic accents, reminiscent of old-fashioned circuses and carnivals with a morbid twist.Angel's back-and-forth interaction with the audience throughout the show keeps things interesting, but his bumbling assistants -- four "ushers" named Maestro, Luigi, Slim and Lars --  ensure that the whole experience, from start to finish, inspires both awe and laughter. Expect lots of dark humor, as Angel has snappy commentary to accompany many of his illusions."You're applauding this woman being cut in half. Really, that's horrible. Just horrible," he says with a sarcastic grin, after a scaled-up take on the classic "saw a woman in half" trick. We've never thought about it like that, but Angel generally has an entirely different way of thinking about these illusions than your average magician does.If you've ever wanted to be a part of a larger-than-life, stage version of Angel's "Mindfreak" program -- this is the show to see.-- Staff report

Criss Angel seems to have a tremendous cult following that enjoyed the show tremendously, and he cultivates this as a part of the show.
For myself, the show featured too much personality/talking and not enough magic.
Production was impressive, with very good sets, lighting and cosutmes.

You can't miss the Luxor in Las Vegas. The giant pyramid-shaped resort named for an ancient Egyptian city shines the world's strongest light beam into the sky each night.As happens in history, things change. Since opening in 1993, the 30-story architectural wonder has evolved. The Luxor now has a more contemporary, less ancient Egyptian feel.Although you'll still see replicas of Cleopatra's Needle and the giant sphinx outside as well as enjoy the stunning rendition of the Great Temple of Ramesses II upon entering the world's largest atrium, everywhere else you'll encounter a hipper, more high-energy vibe.Overall, the Luxor is an excellent, affordably priced resort sandwiched between Mandalay Bay and Excalibur on the southern end of the Strip. (Note: A free tram provides easy access to both those properties.) Here, guests can do it all. There are numerous entertainment options, good restaurants and fascinating exhibits, along with convenient access to a world-class retail complex -- The Shoppes at Mandalay Place -- situated on the sky bridge connecting the Luxor to Mandalay Bay.This hotel is ideal for leisure, business and family travelers. There are 4,400 rooms and suites housed among the pyramid and two 22-story towers. In the pyramid, guests revel in riding the four "inclinators," which zip up the structure at a 39-degree angle. Slanted glass windows also add to the distinctive décor. The twin towers, on the other hand, offer more traditional accommodations. In both settings, the rooms are air-conditioned, well-appointed, come with 27-inch televisions and have high-speed internet access -- so your stay is guaranteed to be comfortable.In terms of entertainment, the Luxor caters to a wide range of interests. Laugh it up while watching the antics of prop comedian Carrot Top, or be mystified by "Criss Angel Believe." Cirque du Soleil joined forces with the "Mindfreak" magician to create this haunting show filled with spectacular illusions. Sexy dancers prance around nightly in "Fantasy," while "Menopause the Musical" gives mature women who are either facing or have lived through "The Change" something to chuckle about. And the hot urban dance crew Jabbawockeez perform in the show "PRiSM." The production features a state-of-the-art set, cutting-edge technology, inventive costumes and the latest music combined with a specially designed, custom-built theater.Although not a dining powerhouse, there are several standout restaurants in the Luxor. T&T (Tacos & Tequila) features a combination of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine from celebrated chef Richard Sandoval. Decorative metallic art pieces that hang from the ceiling add to the rock 'n' roll atmosphere, as do an array of tequila-based drinks. Rice and Company is another innovative eatery serving healthy twists on traditional Chinese and Japanese cuisines. It also offers tropically influenced variations of sushi, sashimi, hibachi and teriyaki.The Luxor's dining options are rounded out by the gourmet steak and seafood restaurant Tender and the kosher-style Backstage Deli. More the Buffet is located in its own special area just an escalator ride down from the main casino floor. A trendy food court is helmed by McDonald's along with L.A. Subs and Salads, Benanno's New York Pizzeria and The Original Chicken Tender Co. Plus, Public House, a sophisticated bar and pub with American-style cuisine and East Coast roots, opened recently.Liquidity is the central hot spot for nightlife at the Luxor, and as such it lies at the center of the resort. You'll be mesmerized by all the eye-catching water and lighting effects. Posh LAX is another featured nightclub. Behind gothic-like gates, it sprawls out over two floors and attracts a young, stylish crowd. A more intimate nightlife experience is available next door at Savile Row, which alludes to the infamous London Street of the same name. Alternatively, Flight and Aurora provide more laid-back bar experiences.Guests of all ages will want to investigate Luxor's two museum-quality exhibits. "BODIES...The Exhibition" illustrates the inner workings of the human body by showcasing real bodies and organs, while "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" tells the story of the doomed ship through a display of authentic artifacts and re-creations of the Grand Staircase, the Promenade Deck and a first-class cabin. Although small in comparison to other spas on the Strip, Nurture Spa and Salon has a cheerful, rejuvenating outlook combined with an extensive menu of massages, facials and body treatments. Four large pools, a whirlpool and 12 private cabanas make up the Luxor's five-acre pool area. And more than 120,000 square feet of gaming awaits on the casino floor, including a vibrant race and sports book and the Bruce Buffer Poker Room.Friendly and accommodating, the Luxor offers a unique setting that makes a great base from which to venture anywhere in Las Vegas. And when the day is done, you'll have a comfortable bed in the pyramid or the adjoining towers to come home to.-- By Renée LiButti

A good value for the dollar
PostedMay 26, 2013
room was spotless with fresh carpeting, nice linens & fluffy pillows.
As all Vegas hotels I've stayed at, no coffee pot
Great 3 x 6 shower. No tub, but who really bathes in a hotel tub?
We did not use pool or casino, so I can't comment on those, however, the casino was less smoky than in the past.
