We got a very good deal on one of those daily deals websites and thought we'd give it a try. Arrived on a Wednesday afternoon, the first week of January. Hotel was pretty much empty (judging from the parking garage). Everything was very clean and well-kept. Apparently the hotel was recently renovated.
We received a King room on the 21st floor with a nice city view. The room was very nice and modern, and clean! It just smelled like cleaning agents, which went away after some time. The bathroom is nice, but only has a sliding door, which doesn't really close shut. So this room (I don't know about other rooms) is not recommended if you want to stay in the same room with someone you're not intimate with :)
We received a free wine tasting with hors d'euvres with our deal. It seemed like the staff hadn't done this too often before but we were very well looked after - the wines were good too!
The casino, well.... it was a casino. Nuff said.
The location of the hotel is far away from the boardwalk, and all the other hotels, but apparently there is a shuttle service if you want to roam around downtown AC.
We tried the all you can eat buffet for dinner (hey, don't judge, after all it is a casino...), which was okay. Lots of choices, pretty good quality. Try the bread pudding for dessert! :)
