Sitting on 20 acres along Atlantic City’s famed boardwalk, the 1,399-room Ocean Resort Casino will join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand when it opens this summer.
Formerly the Revel Casino Hotel, the property was built for nearly $3 billion in 2012. Standing at 710 feet and 60 stories tall, it became a landmark as the tallest building in the city. Denver-based real estate development company, AC Ocean Walk, purchased the hotel earlier this year, rebranding it as Ocean Resort Casino.
The luxury resort will house a 138,000-square-foot casino — featuring 100 table games and 2,200 slot machines — and 160,000 square feet of indoor meeting and convention space with another 90,000 square feet of flexible outdoor event space. Five swimming pools, including a salt-water pool, a sun deck with cabanas, restaurants, day and night clubs, and a sports bar round out the on-site amenities.
"We are working to bring back some of the restaurants that were successful at the property and we have worked diligently to create some specialized new venues including a top Asian noodle bar and a high-end players club,” Bruce Deifik, the chairman of AC Ocean Walk, previously stated. He added that with the groundwork for the legalization of sports betting, “we foresee a great opportunity to bring a state-of-the-art sports book to a city which caters to a large and diverse sports market."
Ocean Resort Casino will see the debut of Hyatt’s newly acquired fitness and spa brand, Exhale. The first Exhale to open within a Hyatt-branded property, the 32,000-square-foot spa will feature 32 treatment rooms, a mind-body studio and retail boutique.
The agreement marks the eighth North American hotel to open as part of the Unbound Collection, which launched in 2016. The portfolio also includes the recently opened Holston House Nashville in Nashville and The Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia, with the Eliza Jane in New Orleans expected to open this spring.
