 MCLEAN, VA, LAS VEGAS—DoubleTree by Hilton and Tropicana Las Vegas have opened the Tropicana Las Vegas—a DoubleTree by Hilton, following a two-month conversion period since the announcement of a strategic partnership between the two entities in late October. Under a franchise agreement, Tropicana Las Vegas will continue to own and operate all 1,500 guestrooms in the 35-acre resort under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand.

“We are thrilled that the Tropicana Las Vegas has joined our growing portfolio of global properties and has brought DoubleTree by Hilton to the Las Vegas Strip,” John Greenleaf, global head of DoubleTree by Hilton, said in a statement. “The opening marks a significant opportunity for Hilton HHonors members to earn and redeem points at this exciting Las Vegas resort.”

The recently completed $200-million transformation features 1,500 newly renovated guestrooms and suites, four restaurants, a spa, an entertainment complex, a state-of-the-art conference center and exhibition hall, and the recently opened Bagatelle Supper Club and Beach Club.

To celebrate the launch of the strategic partnership, the property will be sponsoring three one million Hilton HHonors points giveaways. Between Jan. 22 and April 22, Hilton HHonors members may register for the chance to win one million HHonors points and gain additional entries for each stay completed at the resort during this promotional period. Additionally, DoubleTree by Hilton is giving away a VIP Las Vegas weekend to one Facebook fan and a guest on www.facebook.com/doubletree. The entry period ends Jan. 28.
