Trop or Borgata for $10 more

Staying in AC next month for 1 night. My husband and I have stayed at the Trop a bunch of times and really like it. However, we are going with 1st timers who suggested the Borgata because they heard it was newer and more "upscale". The Borgata is only $10 more, but I don't like the fact that it is off the boardwalk. Which would you choose?

Can you comfortably walk from the Borgata to the boardwalk. If so, how long does it take and is it safe?

Thx.

You can not walk from the Borgata to the Boardwalk. The Borgata is my favorite and the Trop is a very close second. If you are paying for the trip Id say go with the Trop, but if both are paying then Borgata. Take a taxi over to the Trop so they can see it.

There's your answer. If paying an extra $10 will keep 'em happy ( not complaining:) ), pay the $$! Jitney will take you to the Boardwalk for the afternoon and you can duck into the Trop then head for the marina at sunset.

Hope you have a lucky time!

Bogata (always my first pick). Take the jitney or split a cab to the Boardwalk. It is only one night.

Since Borgata opened, we haven't stayed any other hotels (have been to all of them). It's a surprise that it's only $10 more.

Actually, once I looked at both hotels (with taxes/fees), the Trop and Borgata were within a couple dollars of each other. (Borgata is running their $99 weekday special.)

And with further research, I just found a deal for Caesars, for around $25 more.

So, now Caesars and Borgata are at the top of the list, with Caesars slightly ahead since they are center strip and we wouldn't have to worry about taking the jitneys etc.....

I'd try the Borgata, I think you'll like it there. As others have said do not walk from the Borgata to the Boardwalk, not only is it pretty far but it is not safe to do so.

I wouldn't hesitate to pick the Borgata over any other casino... You can take the jitney to the boardwalk casinos if you want but you may find once at the Borgata you won't want to leave!

Not even close for me. Borgata overwhelmingly, especially over the Trop.
