I stayed at Harrah's for one night while in Atlantic City for a conference. The mid-week room rate is certainly attractive, but there are few amenities included in the rate. Considering I was at the hotel for less than 12 hours total, it was not that big a deal. I was in a lower floor room in the Bayview Tower. I had a view of the top of the parking deck and the dome over the pool. I could see Borgata to my left and the taller Harrah's tower to my right. I was at the very end of the hall, in a thankfully quiet location.
As usual, check in was a twenty minute process of waiting on line. Exhausted after traveling and a long day of seminars, this is less than desirable. I tried to get the Wi-Fi comped but was told that it's run by a third party company and impossible. I find it highly annoying that hotels keep charging exorbitant fees for internet. $12.95 is ridiculous.
My room was average. It was certainly spacious, with a large bathroom with separate shower and jacuzzi tub. The room included an empty mini-fridge and a safe, though the safe was inoperable. The room had the heat blasting when I arrived, but luckily it cooled off quickly after adjusting the thermostat. Overall, the furnishings seemed out-dated. The bed was okay, but not great. I'd prefer a duvet and not just a blanket wrapped in sheets. Pillows were awful. The room had plenty of lighting, a desk, small sofa, coffee table, arm chair with ottoman, flat screen tv, one smaller closet and a dresser surrounding the tv. There were lots of mirrors.
I decided to treat myself to the buffet and was shocked when I was charged $35. The website indicated $25, so this number was a bit surprising. Certain areas of the buffet are closed during the week as well, which the price should reflect, but doesn't. The food and service are good, though.
Parking is $5 per day in most casino self park garages. You get one free transfer. Since my conference was at Bally's and I was staying at Harrah's, I only had to pay twice instead of three times. My seminars started too early to take advantage of the free shuttle.
