Borgata - The Real Deal :
Even with the opening of Revel, Borgata remains the standard bearer for Atlantic City casinos. Borgata's appeal is timeless and fun, leagues above the trendy fray. With the addition of plush and luxurious hotel addition The Water Club, Borgata is poised to retain its crown as the best joint in town for many many many years to come.
Location of Borgata:
Borgata is located in the Marina, due North of the Boardwalk. It's neighbors include Golden Nugget (formerly Trump Marina) and Harrah's Resort Atlantic City. The Boardwalk is NOT within walking distance of the Marina, the distance isn't the issue, it is the strange configuration of highways and the hardscrabble neighborhoods between the two which make the journey virtually impossible. Additionally, walking to the Golden Nugget is virtually impossible, although walking to Harrah's can be accomplished by heading back behind the parking garage and walking along the bay front, not the highway. Take a cab.

Cool Stuff About Borgata:
Fun Fact: Borgata's Blackjack Tables have 6 seats instead of 7 - lets hear it for elbow room!
The Borgata opened its doors on July 2, 2003 at 11:45pm. Borgata's 43 story hotel and 125,000 square feet of gaming space cost $1.1 Billion dollars to build and is co-owned by Boyd Gaming and a blind trust held by MGM Resorts International. The Borgata was the first new casino constructed in Atlantic City since Trump Taj Mahal opened in April 1990, until Revel opened on the Boardwalk in 2012.
The Water Club - an 800 room hotel tower which cost $350 million bucks - opened in 2008. A full renovation of Borgata's hotel was completed in 2012.
The Rooms at Borgata
Borgata offers five accomodation options all of which have been renovated in 2012.
- Classic Rooms - your standard room, modern and exciting.
- Fiore Suites - fancy tubs, big windows, finely appointed fixtures and high speed internet
- Opus Suites - much like Fiore Suites but bigger and a little bit more fancy
- Piatto Suites - 1500sq ft, entertainment room, huge TV, plush living room and mini-bathroom. This one costs $200 mid-week and $500+ on weekends but it truly kicks ass.
- Residences - 5k sq ft High Roller deluxe rooms. As state of the art as anything you'll find at Wynn Las Vegas, Bellagio or more. Don't ask what they cost.
