Just got back from the another visit to the Waterclub. We go down to AC at least 7 times a year and had enjoyed many stays at the Borgata until the Water club opened and now we are regulars at the Water club. I am a hotel snob, I won't deny it so this review is based on my high expectations.
Lobby: The lobby is beautiful and check in is smooth like butter. Ambiance is chic with modern furniture and clean lines. High ceilings, sophisticated...from a visual perspective this property is beautiful. Front desk staff have always been courteous and efficient.
Most of the time we stay in room 2972, which is a handicap accessible room. Elevator is nice and roomy and not as fast as the Borgata but elegant and efficient none the less. The room is close to the elevator (once you turn into the hallway there is carpet which isn't super thick but might be a bit challenging for a person in manual wheelchair with limited arm strength). Upon entering the room, the bathroom door is on the right hand side and it is a sliding door into the bathroom. Not a cheap flimsy door but a nice sturdy door which blends beautifully with the room decor. The bathroom is fully ADA with a generously sized fold down shower bench, the door opens outward but there is enough space to transfer from a chair to the shower comfortably. Only shower, does not have a bathtub. Sink is a roll under sink with faucet handles being correct height for a chair. One drawback to the shower is that there is a rain shower in the center which is controlled on the left hand side of the shower while there is a large handheld shower head by the fold down bench on the right side of the shower. So a person in a wheelchair will sit in the fold down bench and would be able to use/control the handheld (which is quite large and has great water pressure) but not be able to reach the rain shower head or the controls for the rain shower. It annoyed fiance but the great water pressure and roomy bathroom made up for the inconvenience. Another drawback to bathroom is no make up mirror for ladies and the hair dryer is stored on the top shelf so if in wheelchair alone you wouldn't be able to reach it. You could always ask the bellhop to bring it down and once its down the outlet is within arms reach on the right hand side of the vanity. The toilet is located by the shower as you enter the bathroom but there is no door which separates the toilet from the rest of the bathroom so if privacy is an issue you might want to take this into consideration. There are dimmer lights in the bathroom which is a nice feature if nature beckons in the middle of the night and you don't want to be blinded by bright lights. Please note this specific room has 2 queen sized beds, they are soft and the linens are high grade. There is a generously sized flat screen on the wall above where the mini bar is. Thats another thing to consider, this room has no fridge just a minibar so you cannot take leftovers back to the room. The safe is large and fit our 15 inch laptop with room to spare. The room is equipped with a desk area and 2 very cool phones (have touch screen among other features). The curtains do a terrific job of blocking sunlight so no complaint there. The light fixtures in the room are modern but still appealing with everything matching perfectly (pet peeve of mine so I notice when the handles dont match the hinges ). The furniture is up to date and compliments the decor beautifully. The room is NOT large like many of the Borgata Suites but large enough to comfortably fit 2-3 people. The view is best once you hit the rooms on the 20+ floors. Our view consisted of the pool directly down below, highway in the center,Trump and Harrahs on the left and the Marina straight on so not the best but not too shabby either.
Casino itself is accessible with the main walking paths made of tile so easy to wheel on. Bathrooms are accessible and every restaurant has a ramp where needed. I am not the gambler of the family but fiancee never has complained about facilities and he is picky.
Overall its a fantastic property and would recommend it to my closest friends.
