Catch Sunny Vacation Vibes at

El Tropicano Hotel

Inspired by the casual glamour of Mexico’s popular beach resorts, El Tropicano opened its doors in 1962 as an ode to sunny Acapulco.

Over 50 years later, our iconic “Hotel to the Arts” remains a favorite in the local community for its retro lobby, elevated pool area with tiki bar, massive event space, and its outstanding amenities and accommodations.
