Harrah’s Atlantic City

Harrah’s opened its doors for business in 1979, and since then has become one of the premier destinations for patrons to Atlantic City. It is one of four sister properties, the others being Bally’s, Caesars & Showboat. All Harrah’s properties are linked by a dedicated shuttle service, the Total Rewards Shuttle.

The original hotel has 1630 rooms, and some of the suites have ceilings over nine feet high, but the newest addition, which has very recently opened its doors to the public, is the new Waterfront Tower. It adds an additional 961 rooms to the resort, and is currently the highest tower in Atlantic City, with 44 stories. The luxurious Waterfront Tower suites include fireplaces, in-room theatres, water jet showers, plasma TVs and limestone floors.

The Signature Feature

Harrah’s signature feature is, without a doubt, the new adult pool complex which is a recent addition to the hotel. It is an environment unto itself with a 90-foot glass dome enclosing the entire structure and keeping the temperature at a constant 27.78 degrees centigrade.

It has the feel of a tropical paradise with lofty palm trees, ice cold cocktails and attractive masseuses on call for all hotel guests over the age of 21. For the younger set there is the Harbour Tower pool which is situated adjacent to Harrah’s Teen Centre featuring video games and other fun for the youngsters.

The casino has a total floor space of 112 918 sq ft packed with all the usual slots and table games. There are over 3700 slot machines including 450 exciting new games including ‘The Price is Right’ and ‘Game of Life’.
