The Tropicana was originally supposed to start taking reservations as a DoubleTree this month, "sometime" in January. Then, the hotel said it would happen earlier, "sometime" in December. Then the date switched back to January -- the 31st. Now, the Trop/Doubletree website says the 10th, which is today. Consider us officially confused.
A return to the website at 1 p.m. PST found that, yes, reservations are finally being accepted via DoubleTree. After poking around the site, room rates appear to start at $59 a night. When we checked rates on Tropicana's website last week, rates were starting around the $54.99 mark. A $19.95 resort fee is also still in effective.
VegasChatter fan dac007 let us know over the weekend that the Trop, excuse us, Tropicana Las Vegas - A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel is already on the DT website:
It's a done deal. I'm a Hilton Honors member and they already have the hotel on the website, won't be taking any reservations until December but they have taken that hotel over. I can't wait, I'm a gold member and they always upgrade me for free to a suite.

Well, that didn't take long.
Four days after telling you about a Vegas rumor that DoubleTree was taking over the Tropicana's hotel, it's now official.
USA Today reports that the Hilton brand will link itself with the Trop starting this January when the hotel's full name will become Tropicana Las Vegas – a DoubleTree by Hilton. But, while Hilton is reportedly happy about the partnership, others point out to USA Today that it is the Tropicana, after all:

It's no surprise to anyone that the Tropicana is still, umm, finding its way, not to put too fine a point on it. Everything is new again there, but everything is constantly changing there, too, with a roller coaster of openings, closings and returns.
Earlier this year, there was a rumor eating its way around town that Bagatelle would not only bring a beach club-slash-supper club-slash-nightclub to Trop, but -- eventually -- a hotel as well. Now, there's another new whisper circulating through Vegas folks in the know -- that DoubleTree is taking over hotel operations at the Trop.
