Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A clean hotel and casino situated on a prime stretch of Atlantic City's boardwalk
  • Roman-inspired motif popular for photographs
  • Fantastic dining options ranging from espresso to high-end steak and seafood
  • Decent nightlife options including the Boardwalk Beer Garden
  • An adults-only rooftop pool with signature cocktails and entertainment
  • All rooms come with mini-fridges and coffeemakers
  • The Ocean and Centurion Towers have contemporary decor, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks
  • An impressive day spa for a variety of high-end treatments
  • A stadium-style theater on-site, drawing big-name acts
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Un-renovated rooms show wear and tear
  • Views from some rooms are undesirable
  • Service can be spotty
  • Fees for Wi-Fi and parking

Bottom Line

Caesars is one of the oldest properties in Atlantic City, but extensive renovations have kept it feeling like one of the newest. It's situated along the boardwalk, steps from the beach and luxury shopping, and has a dramatic lobby with Roman-inspired columns and painted ceilings. Though the overall feel is more up-to-date than boardwalk neighbors, some of the 1,140 rooms still show wear and tear: Stick to the Centurion and Ocean Towers, where rooms have sophisticated decor, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and spacious bathrooms. Upscale property amenities include an impressive spa, an adults-only rooftop pool with views, as well as a plush stadium-seat theater for live entertainment. Tack on gourmet restaurants, a clean casino, and decent nightlife options, and what you get is a dependable choice for adults (though families are certainly welcome). Expect fees for Wi-Fi and parking.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A surprisingly modern aesthetic, drawing one of the more upscale crowds on the boardwalk

Lobby
Lobby

Caesars Atlantic City is a longstanding fixture on the boardwalk, but the hotel has received numerous renovations and expansions over the years. The kitschy name might turn off upscale travelers, but the atmosphere here is surprisingly clean and sophisticated. For instance, the lobby is pleasing to the eye with low lighting, white Roman statues, and columns that draw the eye all the way up to the painted ceiling. Across from the front desk is a popular cafe for espresso and pastries -- a perfect place to stop, gawk and take it all in. The individual towers are separated by a clean and spacious casino area that continues on the lower level. The upscale nature of the establishment is also demonstrated at the Pier Shops at Caesars across the boardwalk from the hotel, home to high-end names such as Gucci and Burberry. Children are allowed at the hotel, and partygoers come here to take advantage of the nightclubs, but the scene mostly appeals to middle-age adults.

 Location

Adjacent to Bally's, Caesars Palace enjoys classic Monopoly positioning at the intersection of Park Place and Boardwalk

Atlantic City is known foremost as the gambling capital of the East Coast. The boardwalk is a four-mile landmark along the beach and Caesars Atlantic City takes up a prime spot adjacent to Bally's. Monopoly fans will appreciate the positioning at the intersection at Park Place and Boardwalk, and the life-size monopoly board next door in front of Bally's.

There is plenty to do within the property limits, but within walking distance -- in either direction -- are a number of casino-hotels including Trump Plaza, Showboat, Resorts and Tropicana. Both the Atlantic City Convention Center and the New Jersey Transit train station are easy to get to from the hotel. For shoppers, the Pier Shops complex across the boardwalk contains luxury name-brand stores and gourmet restaurants.

  • 2-minute drive or 12-minute walk to the Trump Plaza
  • 3-minute drive or 10-minute walk to the New Jersey Transit train station and Atlantic City Convention Center
  • 5-minute drive or 23-minute walk to Absecon Lighthouse
  • 6-minute drive to Borgata Resort, Casino & Spa
  • 7-minute drive to Farley State Marina
  • 11-minute drive to Lucy the Elephant
  • 16-minute drive to Brigantine Golf Links
  • 29-minute drive to Renault Winery
  • 52-minute drive to Long Beach Island
  • 49-minute drive to Wildwoods by the Sea
  • 53-minute drive to Cape May
  • 65-minute drive to Philadelphia
  • 130-minute drive to New York City

 Rooms

Rooms vary, and it's best to stick to the Centurion and Ocean Towers

Sleeping Space in the Centurion Tower Room
Sleeping Space in the Centurion Tower Room

Decor and modernity vary between towers. Most rooms have modern decor, but there are still pockets of rooms that contain worn and tired furnishings. Room in the Centurion or Ocean Towers are the safest bet -- they come with contemporary design and modern amenities such as iPod docks and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms contain spacious walk-in showers and quartz television screens in the mirror.

The Atlantic Grill offers a sophisticated setting with an extensive menu of quality sushi as well as surf and turf.
