Harrah’s in Atlantic City Completes Over $30 Million in Upgrades

Milkshakes from A.C. Burger Co.

During the last three years, Caesars Entertainment Corporation has gone all in, with $200 million in renovations at Caesars, Bally’s and Harrah’s in Atlantic City in multiple phases. The latest upgrades to be completed at Harrah’s cost more than $30 million, the brand announced on July 7.

The real jackpot winners are event professionals and their attendees because they can stay in the 450 redesigned guest rooms and suites in Harrah’s Bayview Tower. The 600-square-foot rooms feature contemporary furniture, a vanity dressing area and modern bathrooms with oversized showers.

“We are excited to complete our master-planned enhancement project just in time for summer, and debut our finely appointed Bayview rooms and suites, three world-class dining experiences and an upgraded nightlife experience at Harrah’s Resort,” said Kevin Ortzman, president of Bally’s and Caesars, and Rick Mazer, regional president for Harrah’s Resort, in a joint statement. “Atlantic City, with its iconic beach and world-famous Boardwalk, has been a mainstay summer destination for decades and our resorts—Bally’s, Caesars and Harrah’s—are committed to offering guests first-class, Vegas-style experiences.”

Harrah’s by the Numbers

Harrah’s $125 million Waterfront Conference Center is the largest pillar-less ballroom between  Baltimore and Boston. Open since 2015, it houses 125,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. There are two 50,000–square-foot ballrooms. Meeting rooms, prefunction areas and 28 breakout rooms are also available. Receptions can hold up to 5,500 attendees.

Food and Beverage

Another real selling point is Harrah’s extensive list of food and beverage options. A.C. Burger Co.’s “adult” milkshakes bring all the guests to the eatery. These indulgent, alcoholic ice cream treats will likely fill you up, but try to leave room for a juicy burger.

Coastal Craft Kitchen & Bar is a great place for event attendees to mix and mingle while enjoying shared plates and weekend brunch fare. Inspired by Mexican and Spanish cuisine, Veracruz features paellas, tuna tartare nachos, margaritas, sangria and wine. Celebrity chef Guy Fieri has expanded his presence with Guy’s Sammich Joint, a fantastic option to grab a quick lunch on the go.

Party Like a Rock Star

Guests can party it up at the newly updated The Pool After Dark, complete with a glass-enclosed heated dome, cabanas and bungalows, elevated stage and DJ booth, dance floor and LED walls. The pool area can accommodate 2,000 people. Harrah’s is also raising the bar with #BarWithNoName in its lobby, Eden Lounge and X Bar. The hotel’s concert venue has a capacity of 1,200.
