The Penthouse Loft at the New Tropicana, Las Vegas

Let us help you make a decision when booking your stay in Las Vegas, because there are many types of rooms and suites available at the remodeled Tropicana.  The focus of the resort casino has always been its gorgeous pools, so the remodeling was structured around that theme to give all the rooms a beachy, relaxed vibe.  During our stay for Vegas Uncork’d our gracious host Joanie Robinson let us peak into some of the rooms and snap pictures so that we could share with you all the wonderful new upgrades.

The Penthouse Loft is a two-story suite, with the option to open up to adjoining rooms on both floors.  Downstairs has a half-bath, well appointed but not worth taking a picture of compared to the luxury seen in the rest of the apartment-like setting.

Just peeking into the entertaining area drew us in.  Warm colors and rich textures are very inviting.

Since two adjoining rooms can be connected, it only makes sense to have a dining area suitable for many people

Sit in the modern entertainment area to plan your days and nights.  Much of the original artwork is by an acclaimed Latin American artist.

Views abound.  Even in the wet bar area, you can peer down to the famous Strip.

We love Keurig, and so does the Tropicana.  Many resort casinos here do not put coffee machines in the rooms because they would rather you spend your money downstairs, but the Tropicana understands that a morning coffee is a necessary routine for so many guests, and going downstairs for the first cup is a hassle (especially after a long Vegas night).

From the loft, the downstairs looks chic like an upscale apartment.  The views from this place are sweeping, within as well as looking out.  It feels more like a home than a hotel.

Being in the loft means the bedroom is essentially an open area, with the master bathroom around the corner.  The king size bed has soft 300-thread count linens on a Euro-Top Serta mattress.

An iHome docking station with alarm and radio is a nice touch if you want to amplify your personal wake-up that you’re accustomed to, or set mood music from your own playlist.  Wireless internet allows you unencumbered use of your mobile devices without worrying about your 3G or 4G usage.

His and hers (or his and his, or hers and hers…) with intoxicating Bvlgary shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and lotions offer lots of primping area and products for all genders.

Hello!  Hidden in the master bathroom is a large sauna with room for a party, bigger than the sauna that we love in the Club Spa Suite that we normally book for ourselves.

The shower, although a stall, was still spacious.

Some of the Penthouse Lofts have a spa downstairs.  This one did not, but it did have this delicious jetted tub in the master bathroom.  For dry heat you have a sauna, and for soaking you have this.  If you’re looking to use your trip for rest and relaxation, this is the suite to book.

It runs about $700 a night.  If you get a few friends together and reserve an adjoining room or two, the cost becomes manageable for an ideal bros’ or gals’ weekend on the town, or a family reunion-style gathering (we’re thinking wedding accommodations, for example).  We don’t recommend that you have your own Hangover series of events, but this would be a heckuva spot to create some memories.
