    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?

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    Played last year simply to get their $200 promo. Played a bit, but hardly anything to get 4 nights comped over NYE weekend, but THAT is what they gave me after my one day visit. Went for NYE, and gave them some decent play that weekend, and was immediately assigned a host who comped me a 2 person blank check at Bacio's on the last night of my stay.

    Just got back from 4 more nights comped nights there, and got $200 in slot play during the stay. No resort fees either. My play is generally $1000-$1300 in slots for the trip, so this is some pretty good treatment for the bankroll.

    After a year of playing with them, they get my highest recommendation.

    y2mulder;

    I would say they certainly took care of you. My discussion wasn't very long with my contact host there. Would you mind me asking who you have? If you would rather pm me about that, please do. Perhaps I will have another host conversation before I leave for my stay. I think my contact was rather busy that day. It took two days before his confirmation email finally came through. I would deposit something in the low 5 figures with the cashier but still take additional funds along. What is deposited in the cage can only be used for gaming markers during casino play. It cannot be used for your room charges or purchases elsewhere.
