Geometric inlaid floors and domed ceilings lend a sense of occasion upon your arrival at Harrah’s in Atlantic City’s more upscale Marina District. Waterfront Tower rooms are inspired by the beach with sand-color upholstered headboards, sky blue throws and wavelike carpets of chocolate and aqua. Bayview rooms feel more traditional with headboards framed in printed curtains, patterned throws and beachy artwork.
Bed and Bath
Spacious rooms have flatscreen TVs, tiled entryways and large flatscreen TVs. Waterfront Tower rooms feel indulgent thanks to Serta Beautyrest mattresses and granite spa showers. Thoughtful touches like blackout curtains ensure a good night’s rest and large windows offer, in many, water views.
The centerpiece of the hotel is a tropical oasis of a pool surrounded by plush cabanas with domed glass roof. At night it morphs into a bumping nightclub with a rotating roster of celebrity (and reality star) DJs. You’ve got your pick of 10 eateries, from the upscale Mexican at Dos Caminos and Japanese at Oshi to an all-you-can-eat buffet and late night, post-club fare at the food court. Or you can look to cook your own gourmet fare at the state-of-the-art Viking Cooking School. The Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa is impressive, with private lounge areas for bachelorettes or groups of friends.
In the Area
If the beach is the prime activity in Atlantic City, strolling the boardwalk is second. Lined with restaurants, bars, amusement piers and shops specializing in everything from high-end jewelry to tarot card readings, the iconic expanse of planks is AC’s lifeline. Further up, the Pier Shops at Caesars boast fashion outposts of Louis Vuitton and Gucci, and branches of Stephen Starr’s Buddakan and Continental restaurants, and Gordon Ramsay’s first restaurant is slated to open in February 2015.
How to Get There
I had a great time there. The pool party was all the way litty too. The food is affordable and the whole place is surprisingly really neat and clean. Plus the tables and machines pay out????????????! Which of course what ya gamblers really want the most
Stayed with a platinum member friend. Room 10051? Rooms were nice, clean. Bathroom clean. Quiet rooms. Clean towels & linens. Casino floor waitresses were very attentive & friendly. Would like it if there were tables in your bar, where the band plays, that we can sit without always having to order a 2 drink minimum. We were dancing, already had drinks, sat at a table to rest, and were told we had to get up unless we bought more drink. I can understand not ordering anything & just sitting there, but wait till we finish our drinks!! That's why there's so many drunks stumbling around the casino!!
Room was very large with 2 seating areas and a fainting couch to lounge on. Desk for paper work. Walk in shower was easy to use with areas for soap, shampoo etc. View could have been better as we could see a little of the water, but mostly a area of another wing of the building. Bed very comfortable, and temp was very controllable.
