Bally's Atlantic City Hotel and Casino is an amalgam of three different hotels. The oldest portion, the Dennis Hotel, was the original hotel when Bally's first opened as Bally's Park Place. In addition, there is a 750-room Bally's Tower and a smaller "Garden Tower". The Claridge, which used to be part of the complex, has been sold and has opened as a separate stand-alone hotel. However, it is connected to Bally's main lobby by a walkway lined with a "Taste of the Shore" (Sack O' Subs and Walt's Primo Pizza ).
In Bally's main lobby there is a special VIP check-in to the left of the front desk. It's open Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. However, hours are subject to change seasonally.
Fees and Taxes - Bally's adds a $32.21 (which includes a 14 percent state tax) per day resort fee to all room rates, whether for a paid or complimentary stay. The resort fee includes standard Internet access for up to two devices per room, unlimited local phone calls and a $5 voucher toward parking.
Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders are exempt from the fee and get all the benefits. In addition, Seven Stars cardholders get one complimentary in-room movie every 24 hours. In addition, some guests are responsible for from $5 to $8 in additional taxes and fees, and s ales and occupancy taxes are additional on all paid rooms.
Floors 36 to 44 in the main tower have been completely renovated and are called Jubilee Rooms.

Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel and Casino is Caesars "class" property on The Strip. There is a special Seven Stars/Diamond check-in in the Augustus Tower. (See "Inside Information" for hours of operation.)
Self-parking in an adjacent garage is complimentary, but it's a long walk if you have lots of luggage. Seven Stars cardholders should take advantage of the complimentary valet parking on Flamingo (across from the Bellagio) because, even if you're not near the tower you eventually may be staying in, you're closer to the special Seven Stars/Diamond check-in.
And don't miss the Garden of the Gods pool area (weather permitting).
The Augustus Tower (which just underwent renovations) and the new Julius Tower (see Insider Tip) are the premier locations, as far as I'm concerned – even though the Octavius Tower is technically the newest, but any of the other towers offer rooms designed with class and elegance.
Unless you're staying in the Augustus, Forum, Julius or Palace Towers, there are no longer coffeemakers in the rooms. [Keurig single-serve coffeemakers currently can be found in the Augustus, Forum, Julius and Palace Towers, but the coffee is not cheap – $13 for four "K-cups" available from the mini bar/"Refreshment Center" or, sometimes, they are sitting – conveniently! – right next to the brewer. Save your comp dollars and bring your own from home or purchase a 12-pack for less than $20 at the Starbucks in the Forum Food Court (see below).]
The sprawling casino flows from one themed area to another and features all the typical slots and table games one would expect. Complimentary drink service in the casino is relatively frequent and dealers, slot attendants and servers all are extremely friendly and helpful.
Caesars Palace also boasts a relatively new bar in the enlarged sportsbook, as well as a poker room. The sports bar has a special VIP seating area.
The Colosseum, Caesars main showroom, is currently home to a rotating group of performers such as Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain. Comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld and Chelsea Handler fill in the blanks between musical headliners.
The former Shadow Bar is now VISTA Cocktail Lounge, a whole new nightlife experience by the Hakkasan Group. Hakkasan operates Omnia Nightclub, arguably, the hottest club in the world right now. Show your Seven Stars card for priority entrance and complimentary admission for up to two people.
Cleopatra's Barge features a variety of entertainment options from DJs and bands to "headliners" such as Wayne Newton and Paul Shaffer and his Shaf-Shifters.
Caesars has a so-so Laurel Lounge (formerly Diamond Lounge) . Unfortunately, it has about as much atmosphere as the basement rec room in a 1950s ranch house. [If Rick † or Richard † is bartending, sit at the bar (if you can snag a seat), and you'll have a particularly great time. They are personable and know how to fix great cocktails. David, who used to work there, is now at Rao's]. Guests used to the comparatively "lavish" buffets in Atlantic City will be extremely disappointed at the lounge fare in Las Vegas. Caesars apparently has put all its Laurel Lounges on a "Mediterranean Diet," but it's a nice selection of hummus, pita triangles, pretzels, potato chips, bruschetta, etc., as well as cookies and mini-desserts From 4:30 to 6 p.m. (or until it runs out), the lounge serves hot food, e.g., chicken wings, mini-burritos, etc. Caesars Palace, though, sometimes has more substantial fare, such as chicken or spaghetti and meatballs. Online computers are available for guests to check email or print boarding passes.
- Seven Stars cardholders (and one guest) receive complimentary access to the Qua Baths & Spa (a $50 to $65 per person value), plus 15 percent off services. [Prices are less expensive Sunday through Thursday.] Don't miss this special experience even if you haven't been to a fitness center in years. Avoid the treadmills and stationary bikes if you must, but definitely experience Qua's signature Roman Rituals (three baths of varying temperatures), plus a unique Arctic Ice Room.
Look for the special Seven Stars entrance to the Bacchanal Buffet. Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders [and their guest(s)] receive a complimentary glass of house wine or champagne when dining at the Bacchanal Buffet.
- Check your flight status or print your boarding pass at one of the two computers inside the Seven Stars/Diamond registration area or at the Laurel Lounge.
- Guests may claim any offers they’ve qualified for at a distribution location near the Seven Stars/Diamond registration desk in the Augustus Tower. Previously, guests were required to walk through the casino to the convention space – about 100 yards.
