Elevator that drops you into the casino,,,heeheehee

I am so close to booking a room for AC, but I can't walk a mile to the casino (not that I sneak out of my room several times a night).

I am down to 3 hotels....TAJ, Resorts, and Showboat because I haven't ever been on the North end of the Boardwalk.

Questions.

1. any of you going to be in AC on Feb 13?

2. where do I get a breakfast deal (keep in mind that I work in restaurant and am quite frugal)

3. any promo deals for Feb that would be in one of the above hotels

4 . any hotels have scooters at the checkin desk for rent?

that will do for starters

Johnny Rockets, in Ballys & Showboat have has breakfast specials @ <than 1/2 price of cafes ...you can buy a nice little Egg& meat sandwich starting at like $3.75)

Keep in mind, if using comps, its 2:1 (they charge it right to your players card).

Even though its 2X comps, it still works out cheaper, service & coffee are better vs. Casino cafes

thanks for the Constantines and Johnny Rockets tips. Now how about the elevator and walking problem so I know which casino to book.

I can request a room near an elevator, but I need one that drops me into the casino like Claridge did.

I didn't like the slots at Ballys all that well and am anxious to try the TAJ end. I have never seen this end and my friend has never been to AC ever. I love the $41 rates at TAJ and think she would be amazed at a BIG casino..

Keep the help coming.

you can rent a scooter at the taj at the concierge desk, and the price is reasonable. taj is a huge casino. ask for the taj tower, which places near a casino entrance, the chairman tower, although newer, feels like a mile away.

Showboat bourbon tower rooms will drop you right at the casino. There are some scooter companies that deliver. You can search scooters in the forum and I'm sure you'll get the info. I believe one is called seniors on the go.

"I am down to 3 hotels....TAJ, Resorts, and Showboat because I haven't ever been on the North end of the Boardwalk."

"I can request a room near an elevator, but I need one that drops me into the casino like Claridge did."

I don't know about scooter availability but I'd definitely recommend scooter at any AC prop vs Claridge- which has a unique layout. I've stayed at all 3 a number of times, &know what you refer to w/Claridge, but can't think of another setup like this . There is (was?) an elevator at resorts that leads right into the high limit area, where a ramp continues to main casino floor.

(Note: You may know already, but all 3 are connected by indoor walkways.- another reason you may want scooter. If you stay @ Taj you're in the middle w/easy access to other 2, but,Taj is the most spread out to get around.)

For ease of mobility w/ a scooter I'd say Showbat,- the main walkway is wide & runs the directly length of the property from boardwalk to rear. If you stay in the Bourbon tower, elevator brings you where you just cross this walkway to casino.

I know you didn't throw Caesar's in the mix, but the Temple Tower elevators also open on the first floor of the casino. If you want to keep walking to a minimum, you might want to exclude the Taj as it is the largest casino in area of your choices.

You guys are the best. I think I am leaning towards TAJ. It is good to know the TAJ tower is closer. I assumed it was the other way around.

All I need is a clean room that is in the middle of everything and that $41 price is great.

It has been so long since I went to AC that I have no free rooms except in Vegas.

Any promos going on near Valentines Day (I really should be home for that night, but I do love a good giveaway.

Trump Plaza has a 24 hour $6.99 steak and egg special at their coffee shop. I'm not sure if that's too far south for you.
