Tropicana Hotel in Vegas...Nikki Beach party kicks-off new image! Facelift appealing!
One of the grand old Hotels in Las Vegas has been gussied up just in time for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
To the tune of a $180 million-dollar in renovation costs according to my reliable sources!
Later today, the freshly-minted - Nikki Beach - will toss a chic White Party to celebrate the "opening" which is expected to attract quite a star-studded crowd of elite party-crashers bent on getting down and boogeying into the wee hours of the night in the trendy desert oasis.
When you first stroll up the strip, you can't help but notice the new "whitewash" on the front facade of the Tropicana, with the stand-out eye-catching blood red lettering!
At night, tourists actually stand on the overpass and video-tape a swirl of images that are projected onto the side of the landmark Hotel, which are - not only visually dazzling - but downright entertaining to take a gander at.
But, the real appeal, is to be found tucked away in the actual environs of the Hotel.
Once tourists stroll inside the front doors, the white marble inlays on the floor - and the highly-polished brass fixtures - are inclined to soothe guests right off-the-bat and put 'em in a positive upbeat mood.
In fact, the whole first floor is a sight to behold, even for someone with a very discerning discriminating eye.
I was particularly drawn to a beautiful "stick" wall hanging near a back entrance which was simply exquisite.
The decorators tied in wood inlays in the floor which echo the heme beautifully, too.
I expect that this week-end the Tropicana will be the place to hang out, sip an exotic cocktail, take a splash in the pool, and what-have-you.
By the way, Ms. Gladys Knight is appearing at the Hotel right now, so you may want to snatch up a ticket or two for that much-ballyhooed live concert gig!
See 'ya there!
