Tropicana Express Hotel & Casino
The first Laughlin hotel and casino built on the land-locked side of Casino Drive.
This 1800s train station-themed resort opened in 1988 with 406 rooms, which were followed by a 1,100-room tower in the fall of 1993. A majority of the accommodations have been renovated, updating the look and feel of the entire property. Many rooms have river and/or mountain views. On-premise attractions include the train-shaped swimming pool, which has adult-only hours and is heated year-round. Restaurants include The Steakhouse, Carnegie's Dining Car (open 24/7) and Under the Stairs Café, which is known for its one-pound chocolate éclair. The Gamblers Tower is reserved for visitors over 21. For private events, the Pavilion seats up to 1,000.
