I've booked cash. I would prefer to use points to get the 'five days for four' and not have to pay the 37USD resort fee. However, via the Hilton website, it states that 'points are not available at this hotel'. or words to that effect. Been like that for months.

Hi,

My stay (if it happens) is much later in the year.

Cheers.

HH Diamond is useless here even with the FB credits. ive had so many HH promo issues since its not a real DT HH property and FD are not HH trained. they are more casino side and VIP players were the priority which makes sense since its a casino, but i dont play here. im 100% Mlife and CET. so I stopped staying here. i guess it will become a hard rock now.

and here we are. confirmation after over a year of speculation.

who knows how this will look like in vegas. this looks like a total sale vs prop sale. so double Ballys due to Caesar on the strip? or keep the name Trop dump? i guess that means HH and Penn mychoice VIP are out.

I'm thinking the odds of a Doubletree deflagging are above 50% now that Hilton is partnering with Resorts World to offer not one, not two, but three Hilton brands in various wings of that property beginning in the fall:

dont forget about virgin down the street. who knows why its under a HH brand, but that pretty much seals it. no reason for HH DT to stay with the new owners. but i guess anything is possible.

Bally's (the brand) was sold to Twin River Worldwide Holdings in October 2020. Part of that deal was that Caesar was granted a perpetual license to use the branding at their Bally's Las Vegas property.

https://www.fox5vegas.com/news/caesa...2af2934ae.html

Subsequently, Twin River changed their company name to the Bally's Corporation.

https://investors.twinriverwwholding...n/default.aspx

The above is fact. Currently, there is speculation that Caesar's Entertainment will rebrand their Bally's Las Vegas hotel to some type of Horseshoe branding.

https://vitalvegas.com/look-for-a-ba...-to-horseshoe/

Given that there is a non-affiliated Bally's property operating in Atlantic City and Caesars own the Horseshoe brand, it makes sense that they are considering rebranding their hotel in Las Vegas. Plus, they've changed branding on several properties (The Cromwell, the Linq) over the years. So, it's not like they are adverse to the idea.

As such, I doubt there will be two Bally's on the Las Vegas Strip.

Moving on to the Tropicana branding, I think it would be wise to keep the Tropicana brand. It better describes the theme/feeling of the property.

This isn't really how hotel franchising works. The main business of big hotel groups like Hilton is franchising. They would almost certainly love to keep all the current Las Vegas franchises (plus the coming Resorts World ones) because every reservation earns them money.

The fact that there are multiple locations in a given geographical area is immaterial to Hilton Worldwide. (The caveat to that would be if they actually owned a property in that area. That scenario is a rare occurrence, however.)

As long as the owners of hotels are fine with it, Hilton has no qualms about having same-branded franchises close to each other. For example, the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista and the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace are basically across the street from each other in the Disney World area.

So, the only way the Tropicana Las Vegas gets deflagged is if their new owners decide that is the best path forward. Given the volume of tourism that happens in a non-COVID Vegas, having multiple Hilton-branded hotel casinos probably isn't a big deal. In fact, a mid-range hotel brand like DoubleTree might great for both Hilton and the Tropicana's new owners.

Assuming Bally's (the company) aren't sticklers about having the same computer systems at all of their properties across the country, I'd bet they will retain their Hilton franchise at the Tropicana.
