Hotel Review: The Water Club Hotel at Borgata
With massive closings of hotels and casinos in Atlantic City, some think it is becoming a ghost town and a version of its former grandeur. I especially love traveling the East Coast, and have been to Atlantic City four times in just as many months. This is mainly because of the Borgata Hotel and Casino and their plentiful offerings when it comes to gambling and entertainment. The atmosphere is fabulous and so is the experience. So even though AC may be on its way down, as long as the Borgata is around, I will always be a fan of the area.
With that being said, I’ve never stayed at Borgata until now. I was a guest in their hotel one night and then checked out and checked in to their sister property which is connected called The Water Club. While Borgata is ultra sexy with updated room, The Water Club is one step above that with luxe accommodations and an upscale vibe. As soon as you walk into The Water Club lobby, there’s a subtle difference between the two properties. If Borgata is A+, then The Water Club is exceptionally gifted.
With a dark, yet shiny decor, and surrounded by water, it has a heartbeat of its own. The Water Club at Borgata features 43 floors and 800 guestrooms and suites. It also has its own spa (Immersion Spa) that is a two-story tranquil accommodation that I didn’t have the opportunity to try this go round, but will be sure to indulge during a future visit. The Water Club also has retail shops including Just Cavalli and Hugo Boss, and residences which are modeled after urban lofts.
During my stay, I was placed in a Club Room at The Water Club which also happened to be one with accommodations for the handicapped, and the visually and hearing impaired. The bathroom was extra roomy because of it, but you will get no complaints here. I love a large bathroom.
The room was sleek and stylish with leather pillows and 400 thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets.
Below are a few photos of the room and accommodations at The Water Club Hotel at Borgata (taken with my iPhone 6 at night—sorry for the dark pics):

My stay was quick, but I was really impressed with both Borgata and The Water Club Hotel at Borgata. I am hoping that Atlantic City will continue to thrive despite the recent shutdowns. It truly is a fun place to visit.
It is cheaper to book a room at both properties between Sunday and Thursday. The Club Room at The Water Club Hotel at Borgata runs about $250 per night on those days, higher on Friday and Saturday nights.
