I recently moved out to the East Coast and live just 3 hours from AC. I had only heard bad things about the place (relative to Vegas), so I hadn't planned to go until two developments. 1. MyVegas added Borgata rewards. 2. Borgata offers a free night's stay and $100 freeplay when you trade-in a premium players card for their Black Label card. So, I'll be there this weekend, hoping to take advantage of the free night on Saturday. I'll post a final trip report here after the trip ends because I'll be with the gf. I'll also be doing some of the online gambling bonuses for casinos I'll be playing at in person because their sites say online play contributes to earning comps. Might as well grab whatever is out there. Here is the key observation that is already apparent: AC is no LV. I'm amazed by the full rack rate room prices, lack of interesting new member gambling promotions (rebates, good first day free play offers), expensive spa day passes and the need to pay for parking at most places. Really makes me miss LV.
