One of the oldest properties still on the Las Vegas Strip, The Tropicana doesn't look like much from the outside. However, it offers quality rooms and affordable prices.
Their standard room is 375-square-feet and channels sunset vibes with neutral browns and reds. Plantation shutters help let light in when you want it or keep light out when you don't. Custom furniture keeps the space functional.
Deluxe suites have vibrant fun shower tiles that give the entire bathroom life and style. The standard room is more plain, but still serviceable and decently sized, especially for the age of the entire property.
The Tropicana lobby was updated back in 2012. It features colorful recessed lighting and a textured backsplash that will get you thinking about the pool.
This pool will take you back to the 1950s. The pool is apparently where swim-up blackjack originated and until recently visitors could still partake. However, as of May 2018, the swim-up blackjack area was closed for construction.
Locals get free entry by showing their Nevada ID.
Located near the conference center, the fitness center overlooks the pool area.
The Las Vegas Strip is pedestrian friendly, though it is several miles long, so you might want to hop on a bus or get a cab if you plan on visiting the far north end. Tropicana is in walking distance to the Monorail, which may be useful depending on where your destination is.
MGM Grand across the street has a variety of options.
You might call the Las Vegas Strip one big, enormous bar. There are lots of drinking options. Just walk down Las Vegas Boulevard!
