Taj is also old and outdated. Borgata or water club is where it's at

Harrah's was dirty and felt grimy. And that was an upgraded suite
-1 it might now be the most updated hotel, but I enjoyed my stay at their suite immensely.

Is harrah's an SPG hotel? I thought that they had signed onto SPG but I am unable to book it in spg.com. Anyone have any insights?

Its not an SPG. IIRC they have some sort of partnership where you can earn Starpoints while staying there.

This is from the SPG website. "SPG members can redeem Starpoints for stays at participating Caesars Entertainment hotels"

Going for to AC for one night. Is it worth it to pay cash for Borgata or should I just use SPG points for Sheraton club room?

Hotels are dirt cheap, why use points
