I'm planning a trip to Atlantic City for a Tuesday-Friday trip in June following a business conference and am looking for some advice from some recent AC-goers. I play a little bit of everything, but this trip will probably focus on poker and video poker (1-2 NLHE, 10/20 Mixed, 25c VP). Also, since I'm travelling solo and this is my first time to AC, I'm more concerned about close-by amenities rather than room quality. Initially I was thinking of staying at Borgata, but am concerned about it's proximity to other casinos, table limits, and hotel price. From what I've read, Borgata does have the best overall casino, VP (bartop VP?), poker, and cocktail service. I currently have Bally's as the favorite, mainly because the rooms are 1/2 that of Borgata, it has close proximity to other casinos, and decent gambling. I'm a little concerned with the casino/hotel being too grungy, the nickel and diming of CET properties, and the supposed no free drinks? Any advice y'all can provide is much appreciated, including other options!
