It's been a few years since I have stayed at the Tropicana, nine to be exact. I have stayed at the Bellagio, Paris and Mandalay Bay since then. I know the Tropicana has just remodeled and also have new ownwers since I have been there. I have a trip planned for this October (5 days) so I thought I would call and see if I could still get a comp on rooms. Even with all that time and change in the property, I was still in their computer. Speaking to a host, he offered three free nights and a review of my play for the other two including my other charges. Being comped free nights, there is no deposit neccessay, he will put me in a strip view suite and doesn't require my usual up front money at the cage. I will still do the up front money because I like to draw markers and don't want to travel with that much cash. My question (finally) is; do they comp your first three days or the ones with the lowest daily rate of the 5 days? I'm just curious since they are running a 50% off suites promotion, and am trying to get a handle to what my up front comp from them is really worth. Do you think I should mention the cage deposit to entice them for the full 5 day comp? I already have a booked hotel for this time (with all 5 days comped) but I played a lot at the Trop years ago; and I wouldn't mind go back for a nostalgic stay. The other casino is not on the strip, but is the new Tropicana worth all the effort? Especially from the comp stand point?
