Normally the casino hotels in Atlantic City are out of our price range, but I found a good deal for the Taj Mahal for the weekend that we had planned to be in town so I booked the room. We arrived on Friday Feb 27, 2015 and found free parking in the hotel self park garage. There was a short line to check in but it moved quickly. We had some trouble finding the room at first and asked security for help. He was very polite and helpful. Got to the room in the Chairman Tower and it looked basically like the photos. A rather large room with a king bed. The bathroom was huge too with a large shower. We had plenty of towels and the other normal toiletries typically provided by a hotel. The soap dispenser was in the shower and there was also a bar of soap provided. Everything was clean and pleasant and the bed was comfortable and provided a good night's sleep. Overall we had limited interaction with the staff, (because nothing was wrong), but those we did meet were polite and friendly.
We had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe on Friday night and breakfast at the Plate both Saturday and Sunday. The wait staff at the Plate was very friendly, professional and service was fast. We always find that if you're friendly and polite to people they will be friendly and polite to you too. Of course we had no problems with our meal, it arrived fast and hot as is expected for breakfast.
Overall it is a nice hotel. It was bitter cold out while we were there but the heater in the room worked fine and even had to be turned down some because it got to hot. Things were clean and the room had been made up when we returned Saturday afternoon. The worst part of this hotel is the price. We were lucky and paid under $200 a night, but $300-$400 a night on the weekends is typically normal. I guess if you pay $400 a night you might be disappointed in the quality and amenities of the room, but that is typical for AC, especially over the summer.
Our stay was in the Chairman Tower so we can't say how the rooms are in the Taj Tower. Keep in mind this hotel is 25 years old, so if you're expecting everything to be shiny and brand new you are going to be disappointed. But if you're looking for a nice hotel on the AC boardwalk then the Chairman Tower at the Taj is a good place.
