bE Advised! Jerusalem Glatt in ac has no mashsgiach temidi and owner is not Shomer shabbos. He wears a yarmulka but that is it. Make some calls down to Shomer shabbos guys down there . The hashgacha is a farce look up who gives it . As of sept 2014 only place is burger . Org which was closed for renovations or something ( I was in ac today) and even this bubbys place is no questionable even though it's under star k . Rumor has it they are on border of pulling hashgacha bc of issues. So basically if your a frum guy eat at burger place or bring your own food
Chaim, why should we trust you re these rumors about Bubby's star k? isnt that a dangerous thing to post on the internet? does Burgers.org have a mashgiach temidi?

Just a few notes of my one day stay in Atlantic city.
we stayed at the Trump Taj Mahal witch i wouldn't recommend,  the location and price was great though, but the room wsn't clean enough and the staff are far from friendly.
we ate at Bubbies Bistro food was very good.
The boardwalk is a great place to hang around during the day, the beaches are pretty nice also.

I believe you can now book with SPG points the Sheraton Caesars and Harrahs.

That's because they are shutting down. If they haven't done so already.

They are not shutting down. They will actually be doing a complete makeover as trump struck a deal.

Total Rewards and SPG struck a deal about a year ago. You can stay there with SPG points.

i think FlyFirst's point was it's not worth SPG points, can stay for free/cheap at those places.

Whenever I try to check the rates for redeeming SPG for Caesars it tells me that no rooms are available. Am I missing something?

Any other methods/hotels to get free rooms?

Anybody stay at Harrahs?
Any input?
If it's not recommended, what is a nice hotel, preferably with a SPA?

Thanx

Harrah's was dirty and felt grimy. And that was an upgraded suite.

Golden Nugget, Caesars and Borgata are nice. Others maybe too but no personal experience.

Borgata has a spa. Not sure about the others. Check their web sites.

Borgata is very nice. They had a deal on living social about a month ago. Not sure if its still available. Neither of those hotels are on the boardwalk though. Maybe something like the taj would be a little better.

Yea I heard rumors they were closing and somehow it spread like wildfire I guess. A lot of people told me they already closed but obvs that's not the case
