Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa is a luxurious, sophisticated playground for well-heeled travelers. Situated away from famous boardwalk, the Borgata has a casino, spa and also its sister hotel, The Water Club, next door. With 2,000 well-appointed guest rooms and suites as well as 800 rooms at The Water Club, the MGM Resorts International property plays host to restaurants, bars, nightclubs, a pool and two venues boasting A-list entertainment: The Music Box and Event Center.
For foodies, there are a whopping 15 restaurants to choose from, including new contemporary grill concept, American Bar & Grille, and new modern, American steakhouse, B Prime. During the day, lounge by the pool, or head to any of the five pools at The Water Club at Borgata—the adjacent boutique hotel.
You can also book a spa escape on the second floor of the Borgata’s hotel tower at Spa Toccare. Guests can enjoy an array of facials, healing massages and other body treatments.

Our Fiore King suites.
What makes it so special?
The Fiore King suites span 700 square-feet with a symphony of distinctive colors and textures, creating a seaside getaway that combines luxurious accommodations with absolute comfort. The suite features an expanded living space, allowing for maximum comfort. In addition, it features a sprawling marble bathroom, oversized bathtub and a separate vanity area.

What’s your personal favorite room and why?
The Vista King rooms at The Water Club are my favorite, because they offer panoramic water views and elevated amenities. The Water Club tower has a unique personality of its own, and that can be seen throughout the design details of each room. The tower allows guests to enjoy a luxurious oasis that is just just steps away from the bustling entertainment, nightlife and restaurants of the main hotel.
What’s your favorite design element on property?
Enjoying the day in the sun at one of Borgata’s many pools is a must, and with plenty of different options all in one resort, guests have the opportunity to explore every one. For a total immersion into paradise, guests can check out The Water Club indoor pools consisting of a heated pool, infinity-edge dipping pool, two invigorating jacuzzis, comfortable chaise lounges, and a tropical bar surrounded by palm trees. However, travelers looking to get some sun should reserve a private cabana at the Borgata Outdoor pool, which also provides lounge chairs, cocktails, and snacks to swim the day away in the sun.
What are some exciting new openings?
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa just opened its newest restaurant, B Prime Steakhouse, which offers a contemporary twist on the classic steakhouse. Guests will be whisked into an upscale and lively dinner party, where they can dine on unique creations—such as our Wagyu Cheesesteak Bites—and a curated collection of the best steak cuts available, sourced from Japan, New Jersey, Idaho and Texas. Hand-selected menu options will consist of a 42-ounce B Prime Tomahawk for two; 18-ounce Wagyu Chateaubriand and the “Taste of Japan” Steak Flight, one of the menu’s unique offerings, including A5 Kobe Beef.
