First a little bit about the hotel itself.
The Tropicana Atlantic City resides in (of course!) Atlantic City, New Jersey. Resting on the Boardwalk the Tropicana is New Jersey's largest hotel sporting over 2,100 ocean view accommodations, 350 suites, 21 restaurants, casino gaming, 14 entertainment venues and a wealth of shopping.

There's no shortage of gambling options in the Tropicana Atlantic City. With 148,256 square feet of the most popular table games and slot machines, even the pickiest gambler will find something to do!
The Tropicana Atlantic City is host to a wide variety of food options to sate almost any palate. Some of the more popular restaurants within the hotel include â€“
Il Verdi â€“ Featuring Northern and Regional Italian cuisine. Open for dinner Wed-Sun from 6-11pm, reservations required.

For those guests who are looking for more physical activity and stress relief the Tropicana includes an indoor pool, seasonal outdoor pool, health club with sauna's, whirlpools and other state of the art equipment. Golf, Business Center, Lounge and Imax theater are just a few of the other recreational distractions.Convention and Meeting Space:
The Tropicana Atlantic City has over 122,000 square feet of banquet, exhibit and meeting space making it a good location for conventions, luncheons, meetings or private parties. The beautiful surroundings and proximity to the water add to the guest experience.
The Tropicana Atlantic City certainly doesn't lack for size, location, amenities or entertainment. Pretty much most of what a guest would need is all contained in or around the hotel itself. This however, does not necessarily make for the ideal hotel experience.
Its sheer enormity can make it difficult for guests with disabilities or of significant age to simply navigate from one part of the hotel to another. Its capacity can also make the check-in process time consuming and lengthy during peak seasons as the sheer volume of people coming and going can be significant.
Hotels of this size don't start out gargantuan â€“ they are added onto over time. This means some towers of the hotel are newer than others. Older sections exhibit more wear and tear and may have less amenities while the newer towers tend to have the latest and greatest. This means not everyone's experience at the hotel will be the same. For any hotel of age or size (if it's of concern to you), you should ask when making reservations to be placed accordingly. The Tropicana is no exception to this.
Like any large hotel, the Tropicana Atlantic City can and occasionally does suffer from service issues. Whether this is because of unreasonable guest demands and expectations or because of poor employee service remains to be seen however they do have their share of complaints.
I think if one visits the Tropicana knowing ahead of time that it's a large hotel, with large guest traffic and both aged and newly renovated space â€“ anyone can plan accordingly and have a pleasant experience and a wonderful time. With all the amenities they have to offer, their proximity to the beach, the nightlife and food - one would have to work hard not to have a good time there!
