A new reason to plan a trip to the Jersey Shore is on the horizon: the Hard Rock Atlantic City. It was recently reported that this dream is one step closer to becoming a reality for a boutique casino hotel right on the Atlantic City boardwalk. For a weekend of bright lights, gambling, and saltwater taffy, there’s no place quite like Atlantic City.
Plans to move forward with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City is big news, both for local residents and gambling fans across the country. This $275 million project is anticipated to breathe new life into the city. Many visitors that have tried their luck at other casinos in town are eagerly anticipating the arrival of a brand new hotel and casino.
Complete details about the Hard Rock Atlantic City have yet to be released, but a few things are clear. A location on the Atlantic City Boardwalk is destined to make this new hotel and casino a hotspot. The project is scheduled to open in two phases, with a smaller phase of casino space and hotel rooms opening first, followed by even more casino space and hotel rooms to follow later.
Part of the appeal of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City is that it is being planned as a boutique casino. New laws came into effect only this year that allow a smaller casino of this size, and many travelers who are used to the massive casinos are looking forward to a more intimate experience. Beyond the casino and hotel rooms, other amenities will include a fitness center, spa, recreation area and indoor pool, and outdoor pool terrace.
