One of Atlantic City’s largest resorts and casinos has turned 40.
US.- The Tropicana hotel and casino in Atlantic City has marked the start of its 40th anniversary celebrations. The hotel and casino opened on November 23, 1981.
It held an invite-only dinner and wine pairing at il Verdi, Trop’s signature Italian restaurant that is still going strong after 40 years later and a party at the Grand Exhibition Center for rewards members. It also buried a time capsule filled with various items from Tropicana and Atlantic City to mark the occasion with Atlantic City mayor Marty Small Sr.
The Tropicana, the third-largest hotel in the state, has 2,364 rooms, 3,000 slot machines, 30 restaurants, 30 shops and two 2,500-space parking garages. Caesars Entertainment will invest $400m into three properties (Tropicana, Caesars and Harrah’s) over the next three years, including renovation of Tropicana’s 604 West Tower rooms, elevators and escalators, pool and gaming space.
John Koster, regional president for Caesars Entertainment’s Eastern Region, said: “Tropicana’s 40th anniversary is incredibly special to us, and we attribute much of our success to our team members who deliver top-notch service to our guests every day.”
In September, Tropicana Atlantic City appointed Jacqueline Grace as senior vice president and general manager.
She said: “We are equally proud of our commitment to the community we serve – now 40 years strong – helping to do our part to make Atlantic City a great place to work, live and play. We are beyond excited and proud to celebrate this important milestone and look forward to the future of Tropicana.”
