First time in Vegas and absolutely loved the atmosphere. While taking a walk in and out of other hotels nearby I realised that some were busier and more superior than Tropicana. At night all casinos were packed including Tropicana however later at night into the morning hours the casino does get quiet.
The rooms were very clean and the hotel staff were very helpful when it came to carrying up and down the suitcases and finding a taxi. Doubletree never disappoints when it comes to their special welcome cookies...warm and delicious.
With that said, if it's your first time in Vegas I would recommend staying at Tropicana as it's on the Las Vegas strip. If you're looking for somewhere a little more popular or with more activities I'd suggest taking a look at a few hotels a little way down the strip or opposite side where New York New York and Excalibur is located.
I will definitely be back soon and would totally recommend this hotel to everyone. Have a great time in Vegas everyone! More
