The Tropicana Las Vegas – a Doubletree by Hilton, or just Trop to its friends, is one of the last bastions of classic Vegas left on the Strip. In the company of such other mainstays as Flamingo and Riviera, the Tropicana has stood the test of time and the much more important test of customer satisfaction.Located on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue, the resort is well within the foot traffic region of the Strip. Whether you're riding a steed over from Excalibur or a lion from MGM Grand, Tropicana is a cool spot to park your mount and take in a breath of Vegas revitalization.With a multi million-dollar 2011 remodel Tropicana Las Vegas has embraced a South Beach-inspired theme, complete with a four-acre pool and beach club area. For a slightly more affordable hotel, Tropicana has a truly impressive pool experience including plenty of lounge space -- much of which is on grass which can be a surprising rarity in the desert. If you're looking for a lush pool experience, without the price of a Mirage or a Mandalay Bay, Tropicana definitely makes waves.If you've worked up an appetite from swimming, and you wisely don't believe that whole wait an hour after eating to swim nonsense, Tropicana Las Vegas has unique dining venues that provide innovative eating experiences. Enjoy a menu of pasta delights and much more at the trattoria Bacio Italian Cuisine, 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. Or for something simpler you can snack on sandwiches, slices of pizza, pastries and gourmet coffees at the South Beach Food Court.When night rolls in, Tropicana offers several entertainment options. The Tropicana Lounge is absolutely oozing that old Vegas charm. The white leather, stiff drinks and live entertainment make you feel like you've just stepped into a kind of convincing depiction of what people thought typical lounges were like in the late '50s. Upstairs, the Laugh Factory Las Vegas pulls in modern comedy professionals, most of whom are aware of what century they're in. "Raiding the Rock Vault" gives new breath to some classic rock 'n' roll musicians as they play the hits that made other bands famous. And see world-renowned magician Jan Rouven's hair-raising, death-defying show "Illusions."Tropicana is also a very LGBTQ friendly hotel having been an official sponsor and host hotel for Las Vegas PRIDE and Gay Days. Between the beach-like atmosphere, the exceptional pool space, at Glow Spa and all the other amenities you'd expect, Tropicana Las Vegas is a splendid, classic Vegas hotel that you'll be happen to call Trop.

3rd Stay in Vegas
PostedOctober 18, 2013
We decided to try the Tropicana, as on a previous visit had eaten at the Beach Cafe. This turned out to be a very good choice. The hotel is clean, bright, comfortable room, and the staff to be very friendly and helpful from the Frontdesk to the waiting staff in the eateries. Could not have been happier, and will definitely go back again.
