The New Suites at Tropicana: Part Two - The Penthouse Lofts

Welcome to the second installment of our suite tour at the Trop (the first was a tour of the Tropicana Paradise Suites). Today we'll be taking a look at the Penthouse Lofts and why they offer gobs of wow factor for the buck.

Located on the top floors of the Paradise Tower, those who stay in the Penthouse Lofts can enter the suite via living room or slip in and out from the bedroom upstairs. Here's the living room. The two-story ceiling creates serious drama upon entry.

You'll immediately notice the variation in texture and upgraded everything from the Paradise Suites we looked at previously - hardwood floors, wall coverings, and pillows galore. The spiral staircase cylinder is imposing, but totally cool.

The décor and some of the amenities in each Penthouse Loft are different. This particular one does not have the spa tub in the middle of the living room though it feels no less short on Vegas kitsch factor.

The spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom. We love the carpet.

The loft-style floorplan looks down towards the living area. What a shame to find plantation shutters over proper curtains. While they work harmoniously with the décor and theme of the Trop, they prevent light from filling the suite and block some truly excellent views of the strip.

I especially appreciate the small dining table. Far too many mid-level suites cramp up whatever space they have with large dining areas as if to believe some foreign dignitary will actually stay at their property and host an in-suite dinner party.

And what übersuite can deserve such a title if it doesn't present me an opportunity to scald my precious taint? "Yyyyyyyyyyyemenidjian!"

I prefer to enter the suite from the living room, but would rather exit via the bedroom. Walking down these steps can be a challenge.

I found it hard to believe that the room tops out at 900 square feet - it feels much, much larger. You can expect to pay about $375 per night through a website deal which will include roundtrip limo plus $100 food and beverage credit.

I've had the very good fortune of staying in a number of two-story suites, but some (read: MGM's SkyLofts) fall short in the drama department. Trop's Penthouse Lofts have really nailed it, though. For maximum "wow" at relatively minimum bucks, you can't go wrong with these.

I am impressed. The room looks spacious and comfy. But, is that a bidet next to the toilet and a shat phone?

I LOVED the Penthouse we had in November! But BEWARE if you want the Jacuzzi, you better request it. The website doesn't mention that not ALL the Penthouses have Jacuzzis and we got stuck with one without...but after politely complaining, they gave us a jacuzzi suite and an extra $100 dollar credit on top of the one that comes with the room! And we didn't have to check out till 3PM! Trop is absolutely nailing it from every angle!!

Now, this is appealing! Totally different (and better) look than Paradise Suite. When the Trop gets more established and profitable, Yemenidjian shoul upgrade the furniture, and the Penthouse Lofts will be unbeatable.

extremely affordable in my opinion for a room like that. Nice job on the review and by the Trop, I love the carpet in the bedroom. Although carpet on the stairs has to go, holy crap a couple drinks and looking down and I'm probably falling into the rabbit hole.

Question for you MikeE, are the shades in the second story of the living room adjustable via remote?

I popped my Vegas cherry at the Tropicana back in 2004, and I thought the place, at least, back then was a dump, all around to include the casino, rooms, etc. I'm glad they have made the investment to renovate. For that price point, I'm impressed.

375? I found 750/nt. for 5 nights in April which is NOT worth it for these rooms. 375 with a room credit though? That's a good deal that I'd consider.

I am diggin it 110%.
Very classic Vegas feel in these rooms.

Try those stairs after a few too many Jack and Cokes.

@MFP01, yes the shades in the 2nd story and retractable via a switch on the wall.

If people are that hammered and worried about the stairs: go out the door, up or down the elevator and in the other door. Just booked 4 nights in March, can't wait to check it out.
