Las Vegas Tropicana: First Impressions

After two excellent UA flights in First Class, we arrived in Las Vegas a little early and picked up our cheap rental car from Advantage.

After Brian told the agent what he thought of the demand for a second phone number from somebody else, we picked up our Chevy Cruze and find that it's quite adequate. The GPS steered us to the Tropicana with only a couple of hitches and we found a parking spot in the free garage without a problem.

We were referred to a check-in lounge since we're so special. The Tropicana has been a Doubletree since the beginning of this year and they seem to be trying hard to attract customers.

We enjoyed a reasonably priced dinner at the Italian restaurant and played a few slot machines before deciding to call it a day. There are probably a few people in Las Vegas going to bed before we are at 10:30 p.m., but most of them are probably working an early-morning shift.

We hope to be rested up to tackle the world tomorrow morning.
