Tropicana Hotel & Casino
The Tropicana, one of Vegas' classic hotels, offers tropical landscaping, the Folies Bergere with its famous showgirls and a beautiful pool complete with lagoons and waterfalls.
"I hear the hotel Tropicana is quite comfortable," Sean Connery said jauntily, in the 1971 James Bond film "Diamonds Are Forever." More than 30 years later, the Tropicana is still one of Las Vegas' brightest stars, with its relaxed, confident air.
The Tropicana's adult diversions are blooming like never before: The lushly appointed casino and lounges, world-class entertainment including The Comedy Stop routinely featuring new comedians and Las Vegas' longest-running production show, the extravagant Folies Bergere. Other amenities include a gourmet champagne brunch and the crowning touch, the first swim-up blackjack table in Vegas, offered from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Although it's the smallest part of the "billion-dollar quartet" at the corner of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard -- its neighbors are the MGM Grand, The Excalibur and New York-New York -- the Tropicana more than earns its reputation for classic charm, high luxury and, above all, comfort. Diamonds may be forever, but the Tropicana runs a close second. Mr. Bond, your room awaits.
