Where to Stay in Atlantic City? Give Caesar's a Try
I had the amazing opportunity recently, to be a guest of The Caesar's Entertainment Group, at their Caesar's Atlantic City property. Caesar's Atlantic City was one of the generous and thoughtful sponsors and hosts for our #JerseyLove Social Media for Social Good Retreat.
As I said in a previous post, it's been a long time since I've visited Atlantic City, and I had never spent the night. Imagine my surprise when I got to my room, and saw this:
Let's just say, it was a slice of heaven to have this gorgeous room all to myself for three whole nights. Caesar's Atlantic City opened their doors back in 1979, and offer their guests Deluxe, Luxury and Premium accommodations. The property sports a total of 1100 guest rooms and suites!
My room was a corner room, located in the Centurion Tower. I had a sweeping view of the Atlantic Ocean from one window, and downtown Atlantic City and more beach from the other. It was truly spectacular. I never wanted to close the curtains!
The room was filled with amenities, such as a refrigerator, iron, hair dryer, and iHome device. There was a seating area in front of one of the windows and the luxurious feel carried into the spacious bathroom, right down to the Spa shower products provided by the hotel. And let's talk about that television in the mirror. It was a real treat to be able to watch the weather while I got dressed and ready for our events and activities.
But we all know that people don't travel to Atlantic City to hang out in their room (though truth be told - I wouldn't have minded because it ROCKED). They come to do three things. . .eat, gamble and shop and Caesar's provides amazing opportunities for all three!
Our first night, Caesar's treated us all to a delicious and inspired diner at Mia's.
Mia's is located in the Temple Lobby, and was a treat for all the senses. Their sophisticated decor was matched only by the delicious Italian/Mediterranean menu. I had the homemade Cavetelli and it was fantastic. Let's not talk about how off the hook the creme brulee was.
Caesar's offers plenty of dining choices, from gelato to their amazing Sunday Brunch at Nero's, and everything in between. Every guest can find something within their budget and to their liking. Sadly, I have no pictures to share of the amazing brunch at Nero's, because I was too busy eating. It is the most extensive brunch buffet I have ever seen with everything from custom-order waffles to caviar to crab legs. It was delicious, the space was beautiful and we even got to meet the charming and talented Chef.
I am not a gambler. . .however, I AM a shopper and the shops within the Caesar's property and at the Pier Shops had a wide variety of goodies. There are also more than 75 brand-name outlet shops within walking distance (or quick cab ride) of the property.
Not only did we get to experience Caesar's hospitality first hand, but they invited us over to Harrah's Resort to see The Pool After Dark and were kind enough to show us what the guest rooms at the Harrah's property look like as well. Harrah's opened in 1980 and is located in the marina district. Harrah's offers an amazing selection of rooms and suites, including Red Door Spa Suites, Billiard Suites and Super Suites. Their guest rooms were fantastic and sported great amenities and luxurious touches.
Just talking about it makes me want to go back. It's a perfect spot for a girls getaway weekend, or a romantic weekend for two. Who's with me?
