My wife and I stayed at the Revel overnight (thursday-friday) after seeing the Neil Young Hurricane Sandy Benefit show at the Borgata. The hotel is very nice, very modern and very cool. We were impressed with sleek design. The hotel actually connects to the boardwalk and the ocean. Easy parking, easy check in.
Lots of food choices, although $100 -$200 for dinner before a show at the Mussle Bar was too rich for our taste. We grabbed salads and veggie burgers at the Village Whiskey instead. The food was good, especially the tater tots. Good veggie burger and cobb salad. I had a worthy house rye manhattan. Good, attentive service, although it was so dark that I needed a candle to read the menu. (note to staff- make the text larger on menus if you are turning the lights down). I would go back to drink. Great selection of whiskey, classy place although it was a bit loud.
Our room was very nice. It reminded me of the Hudson Hotel in NYC but it was 5x larger with an ocean view.
This place is BIG. The Revel was built for crowds. I hope they come this place is so much nicer than much of the tacky crap in AC. We didnt gamble, and from the looks of things no one else did either while we were there. The staff was friendly, no compliants there. I plan on going back. I love that the whole building is smoke free. I hope that the Revel, Borgata and Chelsea are the future of AC and that the tacky Showboat, Taj and Ceasars one day go by the wayside.
