Tropicana Las Vegas—A DoubleTree by Hilton is surprising meeting planners and their attendees after a recent transformation. With a convenient location just minutes away from Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport, major convention centers and top entertainment stadiums, the resort provides a luxurious yet affordable group experience on the Las Vegas Strip.

Each of the Tropicana Las Vegas’ 1,470 residential-style guest rooms features luxurious amenities, such as Wi-Fi and 300-threadcount linens. Guests can opt to stay in the Bungalows, which come with balconies; the casino-adjacent rooms in Paradise Tower; or Club Tower rooms near the conference center. For VIPs, the Pool and Sky Villas offer an entirely new level of luxury.

After a recent expansion, Tropicana Las Vegas’ conference center now offers more than 100,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space that can be broken down into 38 breakout rooms. The Trinidad Pavilion and Meeting Rooms provide 55,000 sq. ft. of meeting and exhibition space with ground-level access, making them ideal for large general sessions, exhibitions, and other types of events. The award-winning pool and gardens and the Tropicana Theater offer opulent spaces for upscale events. Other unique venues for group functions include the Havana Room, a stunning backdrop for galas and receptions with its chandelier, dark-wood dance floor, custom seating, and premium audiovisual technology, and Sky Beach Club’s pool setting is also set up to accommodate outdoor events up to 2000 guests.

Entertainment options include the Laugh Factory comedy club and live entertainment in the Tropicana Lounge. When it comes to dining, three on-property restaurants include in-door or out-door dining at Beach Café, Biscayne Steak Sea & Wine for a reinterpretation of a classic steakhouse and Bacio Italian Cuisine. Robert Irvine, host of the Food Network’s “Restaurant: Impossible,” will debut a new restaurant at the resort in 2017. And when it comes to gaming, Tropicana Las Vegas’ 50,000-square-foot casino includes an assortment of slots and table games.
