I am the "new" kid on the block, I just discovered you guys a week ago! However, I have spent time over the years in Vegas and decided to take a chance with the Tropicana. I wanted a "serene" time and not something with an extreme theme. After reading your postings, I began second guessing my choice, so I email the hotel with my accomadation concerns. Thanks to you guys, they replied that they noted to give me a room with a balcony and a view of the pool or gardens. Thanks, everyone. I'll let you know when I return from my time in LV the first week of May.
