Enjoyed it thanks for posting
I'm kind of ticked they haven't released room renderings/photos yet. Let's go already!!
I found interesting that it seems like the casino is not what they will consider their biggest draw. They are thinking dining and entertainment will be what brings people to their resort. I'm waiting to see what they will have with mid week entertainment which is sorely lacking in AC.
They say gambling isn't their big draw, but I don't think they would have spent a couple billion on the complex without it.
I think it's a lot bigger part of their business than they want to say.
"I found interesting that it seems like the casino is not what they will consider their biggest draw. They are thinking dining and entertainment will be what brings people to their resort."
Revel has stated many times that the casino is simply an amenity, not what the resort is all about. They say their focus is more on things like dining and non-gambling entertainment.
Funny, it seems like Vegas has just the opposite marketing strategy. The restaurants and entertainment are an amenity and the gambling is the big draw. I always do those things as a break from my gambling not the other way around.
Time will tell if that strategy is profitable.
Just another A/C Casino that will be run like the rest of them..
All about Money,the Hell with the Customer!
Hotels in AC that don't have casinos seem to stay in business so why not? Plus since a most people who live within easy driving distance of AC have casinos near home (although mostly crappy ones) it makes sense to make it more of an on the beach resort that happens to have a casino.
I am also curious about how their room rates will compare.
