Harrah's Resort Atlantic City

Atlantic City, USA

The hotel

This is most definitely a large resort with a lot on offer if you’re in the mood for partying! There’s around-the-clock gaming excitement in the world-class casino, with over 150,000 square feet of action-packed tables, craps, roulette, blackjack and the hottest slot machines in town. The most noteworthy draw is The Pool, enclosed within a 90-foot high glass dome, this is an exclusive indoor tropical oasis by day and the city’s chicest party spot by night, home to the hottest club scene in Atlantic City – even Michael Phelps came here to enjoy himself after the Olympics! If you need to smooth out all the dark circles and hide the evidence of the night before, the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa will be your sanctuary. Choose from a diverse menu of treatments and you can even feel like royalty with pedicure thrones and a couple’s suite with lounge area, fireplace and spa tub. For those who like to re-energise in a more active way, there's the brand new 24-hour fitness centre with top of the range Technogym equipment. If you enjoy slightly quieter pastimes you can enrol in classes at the on-site Viking Cooking School, where instructors and celebrity chefs teach classes for all abilities. Classes include Italian specialities, learning how to create perfect sushi and the very tempting sounding Cookie Workshop.

We typically go for just a quick get away, and we usually stay at Harrah's. We stayed for one night and that was enough. The hotel itself when you first walked in smelled terrible. We completed our check-n at the kiosk. The room we stayed in was not very clean. The side tables in the room were extremely dusty. The vent by the window was all banged up. The bathroom shelves where the hair dryer sits probably wasn't dusted in months. The shower had black mold all over. In general I was very disappointed as this is our "go to" Atlantic City hotel. Upon check out I did let the employee know and she did take off $30 from our bill. Unfortunately I do not think I will stay there anytime soon. Positive side: The restaurants we dined at (McCormick & Schmick's for happy hour, Café Tazza for ice cream, and Coastal Craft Kitchen & Bar for breakfast) had fabulous food and amazing staff.

Newly renovated rooms in the Coastal/Harbor and Bayview Towers, very tasteful, comfy beds. This casino is huge, with many newer slots and plenty of room, you never feel crowded. The casino floor and bathrooms were extremely clean, and for smokers, there are 3 smoking areas in the casino, plus the high limit slot area. I appreciated the varying levels of dining options, from casual to high priced. I looked at the menu for Gordon Ramsey Steak, but for AC, I feel it is over-priced, but AC Burger was great, and Coastal Kitchen was better for breakfast and lunch than dinner, though supper was passable. Perhaps it being a Monday night was the reason, the meal was fine, but the cheesecake dessert tasted like it had been left in the freezer, uncovered, for months. I had to spit it out after just putting it in my mouth without chewing. What I didn't understand was why I was not even offered something different, on the house, because of that, which any restaurant would do. The indoor pool is beautiful, and there is a Starbucks, sandwich place, and pizza in small food court by the pool. Overall, a good experience, safe environment, slot choices galore, front desk was wonderful, all workers pleasant. Read less

Great Experience. Didn't win much but I had a great time with friends. I stayed at Bayview Tower. The view was great. Nice size room to stay. The drinks are great. Definitely make time for the pool when you visit.

We enjoyed out stay. Hanging out with friend at Seven Stars Club. Also picked up gifts offered. Also ate at AC Burger. We enjoyed the food. I have not other tips to share at this time. Hopefully, our next visit I will have other comments and/or tips.

It was a pleasant time and but the room wasnt properly cleaned when we arrived. We had to have someone come in and clean up the fridge. But the fact that they responded quick was great. Not bad at all
