They have beautiful and spacious rooms that have great views of the city. The room service is always flowing

#2 Boardwalk

There is a extra wide boardwalk loaded with shops and Casinos on one side, the Atlantic Ocean on the other. The shops have specality candy and merchandise you can not find anywhere else.I grew up in Atlantic City and was on the boardwalk every night in the summer. It was big fun back then and I look back with fond memories.. Times are different now but the boardwalk still holds its entertainment value, There is a miniature golf course and free concerts every week, these are new things I did not have.

They have large television screens in the air almost every block with charging stations for your phone under or near them. There are still stores like Fralinger's Salt Water Taffy and Steel's Fudge that have been there for years.
