The Strip, Las Vegas

The hotel

The Tropicana Las Vegas A Doubletree by Hilton has aimed high to exceed the expectations of guests with a rhythm and vibe reminiscent of South Beach, Miami. Of the many highlights is the seasonal lagoon-style swimming pool that is surrounded by gardens with flowing waterfalls and palm trees. There are sleek loungers, daybeds and cabanas for relaxation and seasonal swim-up blackjack. Rooms are divided between the Bungalows, Paradise Tower and Club Tower and boast stunning views of the city, pool or gardens. All are equipped to the highest standard with custom furnishings, luxury beds and premium in-room technology. For a taste of paradise, visit the resort’s charming trattoria, Bacio Italian Cuisine, for authentic Italian fare; or Oakville Steak, Sea and Wine for a sizzling steak or fresh seafood; or Beach Café for indoor or outdoor dining 24-hours a day.

I stayed for an overnight on my last trip to Vegas and left feeling the same way I did in 2014--a resort fee that is far too high for what it offers but even worse, no viable food options.

I stayed for an overnight on my last trip to Vegas and left feeling the same way I did in 2014--a resort fee that is far too high for what it offers but even worse, no viable food options. First, because it was Feb, and not peak season, I will give credit where credit is due and I arrived to an empty line-up and was allowed to check-in two hours with no extra fee---that was impressive and I will commend the front desk clerk for allowing that. I got the dreaded Club Tower which seems like it is next to the LAS runway when pulling luggage. The room still has the same decor, starting to show wear and tear, and the bathroom, as the pic will show, could use a reno and new towels. The two little bottles of water, which are now "per stay" rather than "per day" that they were years ago added up to about one glass. Aside from that, I think it was good that it was off-peak because I did not get any second-hand smoke in the room though there was plenty in the hallway outside; both cigarette and marijuana. Now for the food/coffee-- there is a "Food Court" that contains only a Starbucks and some deli area that looked like an abandoned high school cafeteria. What I found odd about the Starbucks and the little tiny shop close to the main entrance was the absence of food prices. At Starbucks they at least listed the coffee prices that one would need to get a small mortgage to buy, but it was the first one ever where none of the food prices were listed. A bit odd. On that note--not only the Tropicana, but I found that Starbucks must have some hotel-wide contract in Vegas; there are everywhere!!! There isn't choice anymore--just Starbucks or some hotel kiosk/restaurant where the prices match. I literally walked a km each day, mostly out of principle, to the nearest McDonalds to get something that didn't feel like I was being cheated out of my life savings for a coffee. For the Tropicana, I walked South down towards the Mandalay Bay--there is a McDonald's there. With many hotels in Vegas updating and making all rooms non-smoking, I think it is time for the Tropicana to jump on that ship too. Read less

Checked in at 2 am on Feb 22 and the hotel was fully booked. Reserved a non smoking room. Informed the front desk around 2 pm that I need to make sure I don't get charge for smoking fee. The female front desk didn't reassure anything but gave a quick response "we can place an ozone generator odor eliminator for a coupe of hours, when are you planning to leave your room?" Extremely disappointing. The booking was advertised as a non smoking room and not keeping the minimum standards with lack of rectification to go above and beyond is a 1 star hotel customer service level. Meeting revenue at 100% on weekends is great for the management team. But sacrificing the product with poor and lackluster upkeep is a major dissatisfaction. And there wasn't much help being a hilton honors member THIS IS A GREAT HOTEL FOR SMOKERS. Read less

If you remember that, your age will be the same as the clientele who frequent The Tropicana. Very few younger than 60. None of them the high-heeled, tony crowd of the Venetian or Bellagio. This is not a posh hotel. There is a smoky, lingering smell to the casino and the hallways. However this hotel is a great option if you want to save cash. … Read more
If you remember that, your age will be the same as the clientele who frequent The Tropicana. Very few younger than 60. None of them the high-heeled, tony crowd of the Venetian or Bellagio. This is not a posh hotel. There is a smoky, lingering smell to the casino and the hallways. However this hotel is a great option if you want to save cash. Because it is decent. The rooms are huge. The bathroom are sizable. The bed and pillows are the best -- the shower head is strong (although the white greying towels should be replaced.) Great views, great history. Interesting gym that is attached to the spa. The spa workers will all remind you that you need to pay if you want to use the locker room or sauna--but you are allowed to take the free fruit. Ask for a room in the Paradise Tower -- much closer and more modern. Kudos to Lynn at the Hilton Honors desk -- she's receptive and truly customer service oriented. Read less

The Tropicana hotel is located towards the southern end of the Las Vegas strip, opposite the Excalibur hotel. It does not benefit from being one of the 'themed' hotels but as such doesn't charge for the pleasure. The themes hotels are right across the road if you want to visit.

The Tropicana hotel is located towards the southern end of the Las Vegas strip, opposite the Excalibur hotel. It does not benefit from being one of the 'themed' hotels but as such doesn't charge for the pleasure. The themes hotels are right across the road if you want to visit. I would recommend visiting all of the hotels along the strip at some point during your stay as they all offer something different. The casino here is small in comparison to most of the other hotel casinos and is nowhere near as busy. The pool area is clean and worth a visit at some point. If you want a hotel as a base and at a reasonable price, you won't go wrong with this hotel. If you want extravagance or a busier venue expect to pay a lot more. Read less

We booked this hotel as it is a DoubleTree by Hilton. Check-in was fine and we got our room in the Paradise Tower. We booked a City View and got a view of the Club Tower! The room itself is dated but was large, however it felt damp and the air conditioning was stuck at 21.5C. There was no tea or coffee in the rooms. We did get their cookies… Read more
We booked this hotel as it is a DoubleTree by Hilton. Check-in was fine and we got our room in the Paradise Tower. We booked a City View and got a view of the Club Tower! The room itself is dated but was large, however it felt damp and the air conditioning was stuck at 21.5C. There was no tea or coffee in the rooms. We did get their cookies though. Self parking was easy and free. However, in peak season there doesn’t look like there’d be enough room. We use Hilton quite a bit and this one’s rooms needs to be updated. Read less
