Tropicana Follows Up $200M Renovation With Meeting-Space Makeover

Tropicana Las Vegas – a DoubleTree by Hilton is currently undergoing major changes at its Tropicana Pavilion, with the facility being expanded for additional space. The entity recently announced that the development process is set for a March 1, 2015 completion. A number of improvements and new features are also planned for the process that aims to bolster the hotel’s convention business appeal in the coming years.

In a bid to capture a bigger share of the city’s convention and meeting business, Tropicana Las Vegas – a DoubleTree by Hilton is expanding its Tropicana Pavilion. When complete next March, the project will increase the property’s meeting space to about 100,000 square feet. The pavilion project follows the Tropicana’s recently completed $200 million makeover aimed at lending a South Beach flavor to the venerable property.

The expansion will add 26,000 square feet to the facility and feature 16-foot ceilings and up to 11 rooms of flexible meeting space. Also in the works are new private restrooms and escalators. Meanwhile, upgrades are in store for the existing section of the pavilion, including a decorative acoustic treatment.

All told, the project will increase Tropicana Pavilion to 55,000 square feet, which the resort is banking on to further improve its appeal to the events market. The facility currently hosts functions ranging from conventions and corporate meetings to wedding receptions.

“The fact that the space is all new and can entirely self-contain groups will be an appealing feature for organizers of larger corporate meetings and events,” Gavin Mealiffe, vice president of sales for Tropicana Las Vegas, commented in a statement. “It is also very convenient to the hotel’s Club Tower, allowing for easy access for group attendees.”
