Oh noes! The Tropicana Hotel censored my post! I've never had this happen before, though it was bound to happen eventually. But I received a notification from blogger that a picture I used of the Tropicana Hotel when I mentioned I was going on vacation to Las Vegas a couple of months ago was removed due to copyright infringement. Huh. You'd think they would like the publicity. Well, they made me do it. But now I have to mention what a dump the hotel was. No, no this isn't sour grapes. This is a case of you people should be grateful I didn't trash your hotel to begin with, but now the gloves are off... The Tropicana was literally the worst hotel I have ever stayed in-- it's true. No mini-fridge, no wi-fi, no coffee pot, and we didn't even get the little tiny soaps the first day we were there. They were also remodeling the floor we were on, which likely explained the horrible condition of the rooms, but it also looked as if someone had been squatting in one of the rooms down the hall (I wish I was kidding). We weren't there long, so we didn't switch hotels, but I told my husband I'd never stay there again. And these people objected to a flattering picture of their hotel on my blog? Obviously karma wanted me to make sure no other travelers made the same mistake I did by staying at this hotel because I would never have bothered to go into such detail had they not messed with my blog. Okay, maybe there's some sour grapes here... But still, it was a lousy hotel.
