Tropicana - The Real Deal :
After decades of neglect, the tarnish is finally coming off the Tiffany on The Strip. The Tropicana is currently undergoing a major renovation and rejuvenation into a Miami/South Beach themed integrated resort. $160 million dollars have been spent to upgrading rooms, redoing restaurants, renovate the pool, redesign the casino and re-energizing their staff. We couldn't be any happier to see the great Trop back on top.
Location of Tropicana:
Tropicana Blvd and the Strip... on the corner that the MGM Grand, New York-New York and Excalibur don't occupy. Hooters Hotel & Casino is right next door - a very refreshing and goofy good time... particularly if you like hot wings and chix in orange hot pants.

Cool Stuff About Tropicana:
One of the vintage Vegas joints, the Tropicana name is synonymous with Vegas itself, hell, it's got a street named after it! After 30 years of thriving growth, the 1990s and 2000's proved to be an era of retraction and neglect at the Tropicana with its landmass and location making up the majority value of the $3 Billion Columbia Sussex paid for it in 2006. Further neglect spun the property into bankruptcy where Trop had been rumored to be headed for demolition block. New owners, headed by former MGM boss and Kirk Kerkorian protege Alex Yemenijian have made put plans into motion to completely renovate and rebrand the property - stem to stern - with a target of late 2011 to get 'er completely done. The Tropicana lives.
The Rooms at Tropicana
If your staying at the Trop, we suggest the new rooms in the Paradise Towers, the Island tower has yet to be renovated. The third option are the Garden Rooms, which, while quaint, probably aren't exactly what you are looking for unless you want to experience truly vintage Vegas Motor Lodge style accommodations. Rumor has it that the Garden Rooms will be demolished in the not-so-distant future.
Restaurants at Tropicana
Legends Steak and Seafood - steaks, chops, chicken, seafood in a casual dining atmosphere. Entrees range in price from $15-40.
Havana GoGo - the all new coffee shop at the Tropicana.
Legends Steakhouse - all new steak & seafood joint at the Tropicana!
Bacio - pizza, pasta, Italian.
South Beach Cafe & Deli - big sandwiches, medium price. The pastrami was lean, tasty and not to greasy. Great choice for a quick bite
Havana Go Go - quick coffee & snack bar... they brew Starbucks beans.
Service with a smile always at the Trop. The housekeeping, room service and check-in staff is courteous, thoughtful and cheery. It's a stark contrast to the grouchy, self-involved and somewhat bitchy crew you'll find over at Mandalay Bay. These folks have probably been working here for 20 years and they know how to do customer service in a sweet and gentile "Aunt Ethel" kinda way.
