Ideal for a quick getaway from New York City or Philadelphia, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City feels like it's been plucked straight out of Las Vegas. Here, guests can expect over a dozen dining options, lots of shops, ample entertainment venues, a sprawling casino, and oh-so-much more: Here’s our review of this upscale property.

What You Need to Know

The Look of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

It's All in the Details

The Borgata is sleek on the outside but grand on the inside. An awe-inspiring Chihuly glass chandelier greets guests in the lobby and sets the tone for the entire stay. (Other works by the famed Dale Chihuly can also be found throughout the resort.) Framed with marble columns, the casino is also front and center, inviting guests to enjoy an action-packed day (or night!) filled with exciting games, decadent eats, and libations.

The Vibe at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

The vibe here is energetic. The buzzy casino is dotted with gamers hoping Lady Luck is on their side. Guests can take a break from the gaming floor at bustling bars, restaurants, and swanky boutiques lining the corridors. Take a soak in the outdoor pool during the warmer months, with music ringing through the speakers. Night owls can make their way to one of the two entertainment venues or the late-night club and bar.

Who Will Love Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

Those who don’t want to leave the resort will like the one-stop-shop feel. With a diverse roster of eateries, two entertainment venues, 13 shops, thousands of slot machines, a relaxing spa, and indoor and outdoor pools, there’s no reason to step foot off-property. 

Who Might Not Love Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

While the Borgata offers luxury experiences and unmatched fun, those who prefer to be closer to the beach and boardwalk may prefer a day visit rather than an overnight stay.

Best Amenity at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

Foodies will love the wide array of offerings. What's more, with 15-plus food and drink options, there's something to satisfy any and every craving here. Try B Prime, a trendy new steakhouse that serves up innovative cocktails and classic dishes with a contemporary twist. (We’re still dreaming about the wagyu cheesesteak bites.)

Meanwhile, those looking to melt their stress away should book an appointment at Spa Tocarre, which offers a variety of relaxing facial, massage, and couples’ treatments, in addition to seasonal specials. Spa facilities include a whirlpool, steam rooms, and saunas, as well as complimentary water and snacks served in the peaceful lounge.

Entertainment lovers can also rejoice in the 161,000-square-foot casino, which has nearly 180 gaming tables, approx. 3,000 slot machines, and a 50-plus table poker room. If the casino isn’t your style, catch outstanding talent like Trevor Noah or Sebastian Maniscalco at the Music Box and the Event Center. Or, plan a night of live entertainment at Gypsy Bar or Premier Nightclub.
