Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A sophisticated, elegant hotel with adults-only pools
  • Modern rooms packed with amenities: iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers
  • Luxurious Immersion Spa with infinity pool
  • Room service menu by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian of New York's The Lambs Club
  • Exclusive atmosphere with access to the Borgata's casino and restaurants
  • Modern fitness center with sweeping views from the 32nd floor
  • High-end shops like Hugo Boss and Just Cavalli
  • Free shuttle to a local beach during summer months

Cons

  • Not walking distance to the boardwalk and beach
  • Small outdoor pools are crowded during summer
  • Room prices are among the highest in Atlantic City
  • Valet parking only, and a daily fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Water Club is an 800-room modern and exclusive escape from the bustle of Atlantic City. Guests have access to the casino, restaurants, and nightlife of the attached Borgata -- but have their own exclusive amenities, including five adults-only heated pools and a serene two-story Immersion spa. Rooms have more amenities than at the Borgata next door, including iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and Keurig coffeemakers, but the pools can be crowded during the summer, and this level of quality comes with one of the highest price tags in Atlantic City.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Exclusive, tranquil, and near the action of the Borgata

The group that opened the Borgata in 2003 opened The Water Club in 2008. While attached to the casino, this hotel has a distinctly modern feel that is more exclusive than the Borgata. Higher-end business and leisure clientele are attracted to The Water Club for its superb meeting rooms, designer shops, and two-floor spa. Pools offer a serene adults-only atmosphere and the all-season Sunroom Lounge is a relaxed place for coffee, tapas, or cocktails. Guests looking for nightlife and entertainment can cross through the lobby into the Borgata casino for gambling, celebrity chef restaurants, a theater venue, and nightlife.

 Location

Attached to the Borgata casino, two miles from the Atlantic City boardwalk

Located two miles from the Atlantic City Boardwalk, The Water Club is attached to the Borgata on Renaissance Pointe. Part of the appeal of these hotels is distance from the boardwalk crowds. The Water Club isn't located on the beach, but does offer a total of five pools and a shuttle during summer months to a local beach. The location is packed with entertainment options including restaurants and nightlife, but other options are also a short taxi ride away. The Renaissance Pointe area is next to the Farley State Marina and is easy to reach from the highways.

  • 2-minute walk to the Borgata Hotel, Casino, and Spa
  • 5-minute drive to Farley State Marina
  • 7-minute drive to the New Jersey Transit train station
  • 7-minute to the Atlantic City Convention Center
  • 7-minute drive to retail outlet shops
  • 8-minute drive to the boardwalk and beach
  • 10-minute drive to Absecon Lighthouse
  • 10-minute drive to Brigantine Golf Links
  • 10-minute drive to Lucy the Elephant
  • 25-minute drive to Renault Winery
  • 50-minute drive to Long Beach Island
  • 52-minute drive to Wildwoods by the Sea
  • 57-minute drive to Cape May
  • 65-minute drive to Philadelphia
  • 130-minute drive to New York City

 Rooms

Modern rooms with more amenities than the Borgata

The Water Club has 800 contemporary rooms spread over 43 stories. Decorated in neutral colors with modern furnishings, rooms have excellent views thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. While similar in taste to the Borgata, rooms at The Water Club are more up to date. All room types have iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, bathrobes, and wet bars. Customized Sealy mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets add luxurious touches.

 Features

Two-floor Immersion Spa, designer shopping, and adults-only pools

The Water Club is a tranquil, sophisticated hotel option in Atlantic City. Many of the features -- such as the adults-only heated pools -- aren't designed with families in mind, but this fact makes the hotel an escape from the action of the casino. In addition to two outdoor pools and three indoor pools, the Water Club also has a two-floor Immersion Spa and options for designer shopping. All the features of the Borgata -- including the casino, concert venue, and restaurants -- are right next door and easy to access.

  • Serene two-floor [spa with infinity-edge lap pool
  • Five total pools: two outdoor and three indoor
  • Modern fitness center on the 32nd floor with beautiful views
  • High-end shopping including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Vintage -- a boutique wine store with daily tastings
  • High-tech meeting rooms with customized lighting
  • Large casino with tables, poker, and slots
  • 2400-seat Event Center with big name acts like Pearl Jam and Gwen Stefani
  • The Music Box -- a 1000-seat theatre -- for comedy and smaller acts
  • Valet parking with a per-visit fee instead of daily fee
  • View Full List of Amenities

 Food

The bright, all-season Sunroom Lobby Lounge plus nearby Borgata options

The Water Club has a special room service menu created by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian of The Lambs Club in Manhattan. In addition, the main floor of the hotel is home to the Sunroom Lounge. This sunny space is open for coffee, light meals, tapas, and cocktails. While the space is enclosed, the glass walls, lush plants, and candles give it an outdoor feel that can be enjoyed during all seasons. Guests at the Water Club also have easy access to all the dining options at the Borgata. Just through the lobby is the Borgata casino, home to celebrity chef restaurants like Bobby Flay Steak and Wolfgang Puck American Grille.

 Bottom Line

The Water Club is an 800-room modern and exclusive escape from the bustle of Atlantic City. Guests have access to the casino, restaurants, and nightlife of the attached Borgata -- but have their own exclusive amenities, including five adults-only heated pools and a serene two-story Immersion spa. Rooms have more amenities than at the Borgata next door, including iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and Keurig coffeemakers, but the pools can be crowded during the summer, and this level of quality comes with one of the highest price tags in Atlantic City.
