While the Tropicana Resort and Hotel already stands out on the Las Vegas strip, they promise to offer a ‘New Tropicana’ as early as 2011. For the past few years, it seems, Tropicana has been saying that they are going to make big changes in their design and their dÈcor, but this time, they really mean it. And even though they’re remodeling and taking down certain parts of the hotel itself, it’s still open for business for you to enjoy the old Tropicana before the new parts are finished.
The rooms have been generally nice in the past, with a large bed and dressing area. Bathrooms are easy to maneuver in and they offer plenty of room for changing and dressing up for a night at the clubs. Of course, since Tropicana is in the middle of renovations, the rooms you are in might be vastly bigger and even more delightful ñ ask the front desk what kinds of rooms are available to see what you can expect.
With over 1400 video poker games and slot machines, you can hang out in the casino area of the Tropicana all day and never play the same game twice. Try the table games as well as during the day for slightly lower minimums and some help from the dealers.
If you’re looking for entertainment, the Tropicana has a great many things for you to explore: Folies Bergere, XTreme Magic with Dirk Arthur, and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Of course, eating is entertainment too, so check out one of the many places to sit and full your stomach: Legends Steak and Seafood, Tuscany Italian CafÈ, Island Buffet, Mizuno’s, Player’s Deli, and Java Java.
Rooms start at $79, but expect this to change as the renovations are completed. After all, better rooms means pricier rooms.
