You can't get much better than the Borgata! This is by far my favorite Atlantic City hotel and casino! Driving in on the AC express way, you can see the massive Borgata in the horizon. With its gold mirrored exterior, it dwarfs the other hotels around it.As soon as you walk in the front door, you feel as though you're in Las Vegas. This is a hotel of Vegas proportions. Everything from the marble floors to the elaborate glass sculptures and lighting on the ceilings are first class!I've stayed here several times and I've never had a bad experience. Each time I've stayed over, I've been in a standard room. These rooms are spacious compared to some other hotels. Everything is new (the hotel is only 3 years old). The room is decorated in light colors and features a huge floor to ceiling window that takes up the whole wall. The beds are very soft and comfortable with their plush, white pillows and comforters.The bathrooms are huge! They offer plenty of counter space and shelves, as well as a great selection of mint thyme bath products. There is a large, glass-enclosed, stand-up marble shower (which you could fit 4 people in if you wanted). The casino is large and features a circular bar right in the center (B-Bar). All of the bars and restaurants in this hotel are very cool and eclectic. Some of the restaurants featured are Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay Steak, and SeaBlue to name a few. There is also a "food court" where you can grab a slice of pizza or a burger if you want.There are also two nightclubs, Mixx and MurMur which feature great DJ's and headliners. It seems that this hotel is geared more towards the younger crowd.Even if you're staying at another hotel, you should definitely make it a point to walk through the Borgata. You can really appreciate the architecture and decor.
