Roll the Dice at Caesars in Atlantic City

Caesars Entertainment presents a trio of standout properties in the seaside city

By Pamela Dittmer McKuen

Planners will hit the jackpot when they take meetings and events to the glittery casino resorts of Caesars Entertainment in Atlantic City, New Jersey. An energetic oceanside destination, the New Jersey city is acclaimed for its historic 4-mile Atlantic City Boardwalk and Las Vegas-style gaming action.

Lucky for planners, Caesars Entertainment presents a trio of standout properties in the seaside city: Caesars Atlantic City, Tropicana Atlantic City, and Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. All are notable for celebrity-chef dining, global cuisine, distinctive catering, world-class entertainment, acres of both traditional and unconventional gathering spaces, robust amenities, luxurious spas, ocean views, and, of course, casino gaming. While the hotels have these commonalities, each one retains its individual style and attractions.

The flagship Caesars Atlantic City exudes the grandeur of the legendary Roman Empire. The 1,140-room hotel, just steps from the boardwalk, hosts the city’s first entertainment residency, “The Hook,” a lively show featuring acrobats and comedians. Meeting spaces at the resort are elegant and multifunctional; the most expansive is the Palladium Ballroom with 20-foot ceilings and pre-function space for mingling. New this year—within Caesars Atlantic City walls—is the 93-room Nobu Hotel Atlantic City, a boutique hotel-within-a-hotel designed with the Nobu brand’s signature Japanese elegance and tranquility.

The tropical-themed, 2,360-room Tropicana Atlantic City is a prime stop along the boardwalk—with beach access as well. During downtime, attendees can stroll The Quarter at Tropicana, an Old Havana-inspired indoor mall of shops, eateries, and live entertainment. Event spaces and team-building opportunities include traditional meeting and exhibition spaces plus an Imax theater, Escape AC escape rooms, and a Boogie Nights disco dance club.

The largest of the three is the 2,590-room Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, located in the vibrant Marina District and adjacent to the the Waterfront Conference Center. With 63 individual meeting rooms and numerous configurations, it is the largest hotel convention center between Baltimore, Maryland, and Boston, Massachusetts. The property’s event venues include the pillarless Wildwood Ballroom and the glass-
domed Pool at Harrah’s.
