Not everything in Las Vegas has to be about excess. If you’re looking for an affordable yet well-appointed room on the Strip, the remodeled Tropicana has just the spot. The gorgeous pools always were and still remain the focus of the resort casino, so to give the rooms a beachy, relaxed vibe, the remodeling was structured around that focus. Our marvelous host Joanie Robinson let us peak into some of the rooms and snap pictures during our stay for Vegas Uncork’d, so that we could share with you all the wonderful new upgrades in a variety of rooms.
The Club Deluxe Rooms are in the three-story wings flanking the two main towers of the Tropicana. Most rooms have a view of the pool and some have a balcony, like this one, but not all do, so make sure to request a view when making a reservation. The Euro-Top Serta mattress is very comfortable, as is the ample work space at the desk – in both those parts of the room, there is space to spread out.
The shower is a stall, and there is only one sink, but having two sinks is a total luxury and wholly unnecessary; just scoot closer to your honey and brush your teeth together.
This room, being the most basic, costs around $55 for the weekdays and $95 on the weekends (defined as Thursday through Saturday), and frankly that’s cheaper than “Greatest Western” or “Holiday Motel” yet your stay would be so much more pleasant. If, for you, the purpose of Vegas is to eat, drink, and be merry, and the room is not so important to you, then look into these quarters at the Tropicana. Free wi-fi, immediately nearby guest parking, and the Beach Cafe right around the corner are just additional perks on top of the pool access and view. With everything so new and clean, you’d think you were the first to lay your head down there! It’s considered the basic room, but you will still feel like a million bucks.
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.
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.
