Bally's Atlantic City - The Real Deal :
Ballys Grand absorbed the old Claridge a few years back as well as the addition of the Wild Wild West Casino in 1997. So there are actually three casinos here. The Claridge, the oldest, sits below the historic Claridge Hotel, and was one of the first casinos in Atlantic City, its casino is medium-small, but still quite fun and was one of our favorites back in the late 1980's. The Wild Wild West is quite out of place here in New Jersey, but a casino ain't worth the ground it's built on if it dosen't have a dusty old wagon wheel somewhere on premises. The animatronic robots that are placed throughout the casino floor (and exterior) are pure hysterics. We like to stand next to em and imitate their movements for a few hours at a time until security kicks us out. Try it sometime.

Cool Stuff About Bally's Atlantic City:
Bally's is in process of renovating their entire hotel room product... including Claridge! The Ruby Rooms At Ballys are Atlantic City's answer to the Flamingo Go Rooms. Groovy, but not nearly as weird as the Flamingo's.
Bally's Atlantic City History
Opened by Ballys as the Park Place Hotel and Casino, and swallowed up by Hilton in their takeover of Ballys Entertainment and renamed Ballys Park Place and eventually Bally's Atlantic City. Hilton spun off Park Place and eventually bought out Caesars World creating Caesars Entertainment which was aquired by Harrah's in 2005. Interesting eh?
The Rooms at Bally's Atlantic City
Bally's renovated their hotel rooms in 2009, replacing all of the soft goods, but none of the furniture. The good news is that housekeeping does a good job here, keeping the rooms clean and in tip top shape.
Of these rooms, Bally's has four types of rooms: the Classic Room (smallest), Deluxe Room, the Premium Room, and the Garden Tower (formerly the Claridge). The rooms are tastefully decorated in dark, rich tones, which makes for a pleasant departure from other properties. We suggest the Garden Tower, and their brand new Ruby Rooms offerings, they are fresh, modern and fun.... worth the extra money.
Additionally, Bally's AC boats Environmentally friendly, "Green Earth" rooms, which, we don't know exactly what that means, but we like it. Yay, Earth!
