U.S. News Review

Since its opening in 1957, this hotel on the south side of the Strip received a reputation for shabbiness and gaudiness — that is, until its 2011 renovation. The Trop's $180 million facelift brought with it a new South Beach theme, new dining establishments (the Italian restaurant Bacio, for example) and most notably, the redesigned 2-acre pool complex that offers plenty of day beds and cabanas. Tropicana's guest rooms also received updates — recent guests note their clean lines and classy decor with orange accents, a far cry from the tacky Tropicana of yesteryear. Rooms also feature 300-thread-count linens and white plantation shutters. The hotel's 62,011-square-foot casino is smaller than most on the Strip, but it still contains poker and roulette tables, as well as plenty of slot machines. Plus, since this hotel is part of Hilton's brand, HHonors members can earn and use points here.

Critic Reviews


“This storied hotel is one of the oldest in Vegas — it was built in 1957, and once had mob associations — but today it is clean, modern, and even somewhat stylish, with South Beach-inspired decor and a sprawling pool club and nightclub, Bagatelle Beach.”


“New carpets, marble, gaming tables, and slots liven up the casino by about a million percent with a sunny vibe (think white marble and plantation shutter-clad support columns).”
Award: Frommer's Recommended


“This hotel now offers an abundant amount of bang for your buck with the great location and trendy amenities.”


“Today's 'Trop' (as its been known for more than 50 years) features some of the most spacious rooms in town with a pleasant (and whitewashed) South Beach, Miami, style.”
