During my recent trip to Vegas, I visited the Tropicana Las Vegas for its reopening. Closed since March, the Tropicana reopened on September 17, 2020.
The former mob hotel and casino, reopened Thursday with limited service. See which restaurants and bars are open and what’s not for your Vegas trip.
Tropicana, a South Beach themed casino resort, has 1,467 rooms including suites and villas, 50,000 square feet of gaming including a sportsbook.
The hotel offers free valet and self-parking. Valet parking is currently unavailable, an exact date of when the service will resume is unknown.
As a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, you can use your Hilton Honors benefits including using points for free nights when staying at the Tropicana Las Vegas.
Pro-tip: You get Hilton Honor’s Diamond status for free from the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire credit card.
Take a virtual walkthrough of the Tropicana in this video. Discover which restaurants and bars are open and which are closed to help you plan your Las Vegas vacation.
Instead of flying Spirit or Frontier to Las Vegas, I drove so I could bring all my camera gear: a Sony a7iii with a Sony 16-35mm lens, the DJI Ronin-S, my new Sony ZV-1, a GoPro Hero8, a DJI Mobile 2 smartphone gimbal, and the new DJI OM 4 smartphone gimbal.
The only thing I didn’t bring was a drone.
And that’s only because I haven’t bought my DJI Mavic Mini yet.
And yep, on this trip I stayed in an $8 a night hotel.
When was the last time you visited the Tropicana?
