The Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City is a luxury hotel, casino, and spa resort located on Brighton Avenue and the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It is owned by Tropicana Entertainment and is one of the largest hotels in New Jersey with just over 2,000 rooms. Tropicana has over 3,000 slot machines and 135 table games and also features The Quarter, a shopping mall located in the complex. In early 2013, the hotel completed a $50 million expansion and renovation, including a free multimedia light and sound show on its boardwalk facade.Ambassador Hotel historyThe Ambassador Hotel, designed by Warren & Wetmore was built in 1919, at a cost of $4 million. It contained 400 rooms, and was soon expanded with a second tower adding another 400 rooms in 1921.On June 18, 1922, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his friend Harry Houdini met at the hotel, for Doyle's spiritualist wife Anna to contact Houdini's late mother in a seance. Although Anna transcribed pages of notes allegedly from her, Houdini later revealed that his mother did not speak English, claimed Doyle's wife was a fraud, and ended his friendship with Conan Doyle.In 1929, the Ambassador was the site of the infamous Atlantic City Conference, in which a number of organized crime bosses, including Al Capone, Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano, negotiated their territorial rights after a wave of violence.

Where to stay in Atlantic City

If you’re in the mood to splurge on vacation, stay close to the gambling action at one of Atlantic City’s luxurious hotel-casinos. Many of these towering buildings have their own restaurants, nightclubs, and spas, as well as stunning ocean views. Motels farther away from the boardwalk are much cheaper. Inns and bed and breakfasts also tend to be farther from the bustle, but offer a charm and homey feel you can’t find in the area’s mega-hotels.
