Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ undergoes $9.4M upgrade

Resorts Casino Hotel, the first casino to open in Atlantic City and a property managed by Mohegan Gaming Advisors, announced a $9.4-million expansion of its convention space that – when completed – will bring an additional 12,000 square feet of event space, including 11 new conference rooms.

This expansion is part of the hotel's long-term property reinvestment plan, following the recent $35 million Jimmy Buffet-themed Margaritaville, and a nearly $70-million expansion and renovation of resorts under Morris Bailey's ownership.

Construction started in the first quarter of 2015 and is slated to be completed in the summer of 2015, with 18 meeting rooms, three ballrooms and a multi-purpose showroom on one floor that will provide access and customer convenience for the convention and trade show business.
