Otherwise Caesars gives you the immediate access to the beach and boardwalk which is good to have for a 3 day trip imo. Harrah's is in what's called the Marina district, which does not have any real foot traffic (there are paths between the three casinos there, but nothing to see/do walking around). Taxi/ubers (does AC have uber?) between the marina and boardwalk should be $10-$15 I imagine so not too tough moving back and forth.

Definitely stay at Caesars not Bally's if you go for the boardwalk, significant difference in room quality as of 5 years ago and I'd be very surprised if that has changed. Bally's was pretty run-down and I'd be surprised if that's where they've invested their money for upgrades. Bally's is fine for grabbing drinks though.
Fwiw, taxi from Harrah's to boardwalk will almost 100% be 13$ the max city limit taxi cost almost every time, plus tip. There is Uber in AC.

Caesars Palace

if poker isn't relevant... then i'd say caesars and not even close. it's the most luxurious of all the properties. harrahs is second in terms of being "nice" but it also attracts more of a "tough jersey" crowd and isn't really near anything.

caesars is beautiful. its at the center of the boardwalk which is the centerpiece of the city, especially during the summer. the beach is right there. luxury shopping and dining at caesars pier on one side. great shopping at the outlets on the other side.

if poker isn't a priority of a trip (when i go with my wife/family) and prices are comparable, i'd take caesars over any property in the city.

borgata is the only one that sometimes still pulls us away just because of how nice their property is, how great the restaurants are, and we're in love with their beds.

just my opinion.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Okay, let's talk comp rooms for $1/2 players. Which rooms are the easiest to get rooms comped if all you're gonna do is grind at $1/2 and how many hours do you have to play before they start rolling in?

I want to make a concerted effort to play more to start getting comps. Paying for rooms on Groupon is getting old...

Check Bravo ... just play 4 hours at either Harrah's or Bally's and you can get a comped room (based on availability of course) from Sunday - Thursday.

I don't want to go that route. I would rather go knowing I had a place to stay than hope that I got a room especially since rumors have it that there are not a ton of rooms available.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Does anywhere in town comp poker players as well as Borgata?

I'm not sure what triggers Sun-Thur offers, but it's not much. A couple good sessions should do it. Daily average earning around $15 in comps should get Fri-Sat.
