In the Spotlight: Revel, Atlantic City

by Jane Reynolds on February 7, 2013

The lobby has numerous corners for lounging and chatting.

The newest hotel on Atlantic City’s boardwalk, Revel is a pristine luxury property with a smoke-free policy that helps keep its casino fresh and airy. The spacious rooms are top-notch: All feature ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows, sexy bathrooms with double vanities and large showers, and tech-friendly amenities such as massive flat-screen TVs, remote-controlled lights and shades, free Wi-Fi, and even door sensors that let staff know when room service carts have been pushed into the hallway. The resort has everything that other luxury properties in Atlantic City offer, such as numerous celebrity chef-helmed restaurants, several nightclubs, a theater, a pool, and a beautiful spa, but Revel offers a more serene vibe. Plus, it has the celeb factor: Beyonce and Kanye West (who infamously announced Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy during a performance at the hotel), and even Michelle Obama, have all stayed here. Like at other resorts, however, the restaurants are overpriced and there are long lines at the nightclubs, but fist-pumping locals and visiting bachelor and bachelorette parties would argue that it’s worth the wait. See more incredible photos after the jump or read our full review now »

Even during our wintertime visit, the hot tub was full of partying guests.

The restaurants may be expensive but there is something for everyone, including the Mexican-themed Distrito Cantina.

All rooms feature ocean views.

Beyonce and Jay-Z stayed in the glamorous Sky Suite, which includes this gorgeous bathroom, during their visit.

Like the rest of the hotel, the casino is brand-spanking new.

The Revel just filed for bankruptcy. How will this affect operations?

Seems like it will remain open and be business as usual. We’ll keep you updated as changes come along!

Revel has approved plans for Revel Estates. The community will start construction in late 2014. We intend to be the Dubai of the United States. The Estates will consist of 15 homes priced from 100 million to 200 million. KBR in Birmingham Alabama will be building the project. Contact James Klich at KBR for information in Birmingham Alabama.
