Open since 1957, the Trop has had half a century to sully its shine, lose its crowds and go the way of the Dunes and the Sands – ashes to ashes, dust to dust. But thanks to a massive facelift and a chic new Miami-meets-Havana theme, it just keeps hanging in there. Out back, the tropically inspired pool complex has multilevel lagoons, streaming waterfalls and classic swim-up blackjack tables. After dark, get your yuks at the Laugh Factory comedy club.
