With two new casino openings and one celebratory milestone for a luxury hotel, Atlantic City is the place to be. The summer sun may be hot, but the luxe amenities at the following resorts are even hotter. If that doesn’t peak your interest, the fine dining and entertainment options alone make these hotels well worth the trip.
Here are our top recommendations for places to stay in Atlantic City this summer.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City
After a $500 million renovation, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City is ready to rock and roll; and what better way to kick things off than with an impressive concert lineup that will have fans going wild? Scheduled A-list planned performances include Maroon 5, Rascal Flatts, Jersey’s own Frankie Valli, Pat Benatar, Rick Springfield & more! Guests can expect to feel like a rock star with top-notch service, guest rooms and suites; plus signature amenities and stunning views, exceptional dining options, and pool and beachside bars.
Pampering at the Rock Spa will leave you feeling fine-tuned with music-centric spa treatments. Meanwhile, workouts at the Body Rock Fitness Center set the tone for looking fabulous. But of course, this is an Atlantic City hotel; which means it comes complete with over 2,000 slot machines, 120 table games and internet betting as well.

Ocean Resort Casino
The Ocean Resort Casino is looking to turn the tide and bring luxury back to the boardwalk. Currently the tallest building in Atlantic City, this beautiful new beach waterfront resort features over 15 restaurants; including the American Cut steakhouse, Italian fave Dolce Mare, Amada for savory Spanish cuisine and Mark Walhburg’s burger joint Walhburgers.
The Ocean Resort also boasts an impressive entertainment lineup and concert performances in the 4,200 seat Ovation Hall venue. There are six swimming pools, and a 40,000 square foot Exhale spa for guests looking to relax. Alternatively, guests can hit the dance floor at the resort’s two popular nightclubs; then get into the swing of things hanging out at the world’s largest 26,000 square foot Topgolf Swing Suite. (Which features spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.) Another perk? There’s no need to be a high-roller to enjoy free self-parking at the resort through September 4th.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa
Marking 15 years in Atlantic City, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is celebrating their success with a big blowout. The birthday bash includes various activities all summer long, like a Jack Daniels Backyard BBQ at Long Bar; in addition to an all-star summer performance lineup featuring Flo Rida, Britney Spears, Jerry Seinfeld, and Cher among others.
Borgata also recently became the first Atlantic City casino to accept legalized, regulated sports betting; an event that began with hall of fame basketball legend Julius Erving placing the first, historic racebook bet last month. It’s no secret that the odds are in your favor for a fabulous stay at this fine resort.
The Water Club at Borgata
Our list concludes with a double-or-nothing bet on Borgata. Specifically, their upscale Water Club. Here, you can stay in one of the beautiful Club Rooms and enjoy marvelous water views. Die-hard foodie fans won’t want to miss the Sunset Party hosted by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck. Loungers will love to relax at the two-story Immersion spa. You can also take a dip in one of five spectacular heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Don’t forget to enjoy a signature cocktail and gourmet bites at the Sunroom Lounge.
