Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Go upstairs and check out the Foundation, an awesome club/bar with great decor and lots of secret back rooms that are great for a little privacy. The staff there are awesome too and took very good care of us.

super easy- good room

We had an early check in and the room was great. Although we didn't have an ocean view, we were on the second floor and gaming, dining and the bar were so close! Air Conditioning didn't work as well as we hoped.

Simplicity is best

Decided to stay at Showboat for convenience, since I wa going to a concert at House of Blues. Was pleasantly surprised at ease of check-in, spotless room and caliber of room. The bathroom rivaled the one in the Ritz-Carlton that I've stayed in recently. The casino and hotel is not overwhelming and laid out simply. It has a Starbucks, nice upscale restaurants and of course The House of Blues restaurant. The only negative was that The House of Blues restaurant was closed after the concert. suprisingly, in summer by 11:00. But , we adjusted and walked to The Hard Rock Cafe which was close-by. Also, the pool was nice but had no cocktail or food service.

Liked the steak restaurant in hotel and lunch spot in lobby. But, also liked that you could walk to Taj Mahal next door for other options.

We had a great time. Service was good, special requests were handled timely. Stay included shuttle service to other casinos that made seeing the boardwalk easy. Very fun trip all around.

Labor Day Weekend

The hotel itself is very nice for the price offered. It is pretty far from most other points of interest. We did have an enjoyable time and took in some great shows.
