“Harrah's best for its on site restaurants and spa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This was my first time back to Harrah's in over a year. What originally attracted my husband and I to Harrah's is the on site Elizabeth Arden spa and our fave seafood restaurant, McCormick and Schmick's. However, what kept us away so long is that Harrah's has this policy that the room type you reserve is not guaranteed. So if you reserve a room in the newer and much better Waterfront you can get the older side of the hotel which is Marina. Also, the hotel has a pool which after hours turns into a club attracting the twenty somethings who depending where they're located in the hotel can be a nuisance. Fortunately this trip was much better - we stayed in the room we actually reserved online and there were less of the partiers (although Rob Kardashian was going to be at the club - go figure!). I think the key is when you go. Fall is much better and less crowded than Spring. We never go in Summer (peak) bc very expensive and def more people. A big plus is that Harrah's now has on site the Mexican restaurant, Dos Caminos. We were seated right away and the staff particularly the manager were very nice. Only thing, don't let them sit you in front of the chef. It's a narrow aisle and you risk being hit upside the head with a waiter's tray. Otherwise, a pleasant experience and great food and drink. Again, Harrah's on site amenities are the draw. McCormick and Schmick's is always a must do. Although one located where we live in NYC we prefer this one better. The restaurant has these awesome booths with curtains that although we never close are semi-private. And the food is always amazing. Reservations are recommended and can be made online. Also, a big plus is that Harrah's is located furthest away from the boardwalk hotels. That area looks a bit seedy although closest to the outlet shopping. But $2.25 can get you a ride on the jitney (which appear to all have been upgraded) over to the Boardwalk where there is shopping and dining. One thing I did notice this trip was the customer service of the Harrah's employees (a clerk in the cafe and a security guard) was less than stellar. Whereas the restaurant employees were outstanding. Again, we really go for the dining experience along with the shopping (the outlet shop employess are also very helpful which is quite refreshing.) Harrah's is def a recommended weekend getaway. You don't have to gamble to enjoy yourself. I would just suggest you attempt to get a room on the Waterfront/Bayview side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Suggested you book a room on the newer side of the hotel - Waterfront or Bayview.

One of the better hotels to stay in atlantic city. Nice clean rooms and thier pool is the Best! It is enclosed in glass for perfect tempature but can still tan. At night it is a club. It is for adults only all the time because they serve liquor so they won't let anyone under 21 in at any time. They do have a family pool somewhere on the property.

Room Tip: The mini suite is excellent.

I'm not one to complain about a free room, especially being comped on a Sat, but we were put in the oldest part of the hotel. The room itself was basic hotel room, nothing special. The refrigerator took hours to get cold, the tv remote didn't work correctly. There were no outlets near the night stand to charge your phone, the tv was dated, the air conditioner didn't work very well, the ice machine in the hall was broke on our floor, and the shower head sprayed in a million different directions. If I was a paying customer or staying the whole weekend I would be pissed. Because they do not take care of their "lower end" towers, I'm not really looking forward to staying anywhere in this place.

This Hotel wouldn't comp me after I literally gambled $12,000 there. Then the hotel manager told me that I have to pay them 199.99 for a room for the night. Very sleezy place and sleezy hotel managers. Their rewards program is COMPLETELY BUGUS. Avoid this place like the plague!!!!!!!

I read some of these horror stories and people complaining about floors smelling like smoke while in a smoking room and smoking floor, etc.

I was scared and stayed in Marina Tower, room 5036 for 3 days midweek and things were fine. My only complaints were I either couldn't figure out how to stop bathtub and sink didn't stop too easily until it finally broke on me at last second before I left. The room was clean and the house keeper Marili P was the cutest and most friendly girl you could meet. She did a good job. I would come back there. When I manage to upload the video review to Youtube, I will edit the link here if allowed.

My only real complaint was I was not allowed to check in until 1230 which I later found out to be a Total Rewards card benefit to get early check in. It is a great casino and hotel, do not be afraid to stay there because you could do worse.

Room Tip: Get a Total Rewards card to save on dining and to take free CET shuttle to boardwalk hotels.

My wife and I spent a Friday night at Harrah's a couple weeks ago. We paid to stay in the waterfront tower and it was one of our better stays in AC. The room was very large and modern, and the bathroom was nice and Luxurious. That said the room was, by no mean's, "perfect". It wasn't particularly "clean" and smelled like armpits and alcohol - but this seems to be the norm in AC. The beds were clean and comfortable and everything seemed relatively well maintained. However it was pretty obvious that there some recent/wild parties in the room - several stains on the carpet, scuffs on the wall, shattered lampshades, etc - again, to be expected in AC.

Overall a reasonably comfortable stay in the marina at a reasonable price. Although not "flawless", the Waterfront rooms are definitely one of the more modern/affordable/spacious options for a night in AC.

I stayed in the bayview tower and I honestly can't complain! Nice room, nice view, great staff! There's a few stains on the floor and some updates to be had, but all in all.. it was a great stay! Besides the pool, the nightlife isn't too alive but you can just hop on a jitney to wherever. I'd stay again!
