Harrah’s new Bayview Tower

The redesign and enhancement of 450 guest rooms was completed at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City’s Bayview Tower. Las Vegas-based design firm Marnell Companies designed the project.

The 600-square-foot rooms now feature lavender and blue accent colors with contrasting white and gray tones, and contemporary furniture. Plus, they all include new vanity dressing areas and modern bathrooms with oversized showers.

Said Bally’s and Caesars President Kevin Ortzman and Harrah’s Regional President Rick Mazer in a joint statement:

“Building on the highly-successful openings of the Wild Wild West at Bally’s and our $125 million Waterfront Conference Center at Harrah’s Resort, we are excited to complete our master-plan enhancement project just in time for summer, and debut our finely-appointed Bayview rooms and suites, world-class dining experiences and an upgraded nightlife experience at Harrah’s Resort.

Atlantic City, with its iconic beach and world-famous Boardwalk, has been a mainstay summer destination for decades and our resorts – Bally’s, Caesars and Harrah’s – are committed to offering guests first-class, Vegas-style experiences – without the flight.”
