El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel Review

: A multi-million dollar renovation in 2009 returned the “El Trop,” as it is affectionately known by locals, to its glory days, most notably in its completely redone lobby and select guest rooms. The interior features tropical plants, Mexican artifacts and columns covered with shimmering tile. Modern furnishings and a clean, white backdrop keep the décor cheerful but not gaudy. Guest rooms are simple but attractive, with earth-toned accents on walls and beds. All three dining/bar options --- Mangos Restaurant, the Tiki Bar and the Expresso Cafe --- feature outdoor verandas overlooking the scenic River Walk. In keeping with the property's fun, tropical theme, an on-site aviary is home to toucans, iguanas and a giant tortoise.
