The Trop had remained closed since March when Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed an order forcing all gaming venues to cease operations in part of the statewide effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
Previously, Penn National Gaming said it was selling the resort to Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. to help mitigate the financial impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Room rates are starting at $49 for the scheduled opening week in September, as of July 14.
