Atlantic City’s biggest and most successful casino, The Borgata, will become the last of the city’s nine resorts to reopen later this month following the novel coronavirus lockdown.
The property, owned by MGM Resorts International, will reopen its doors to the general public on July 26 after its closure earlier this year during to the coronavirus crisis. The Borgata released a statement explaining its amenity offerings will be limited at first, but that they have plans to open more fully in the coming weeks and months.
The hotel, with 2,000 guest rooms and suites and 106,000 square feet of event space, was the only property that was not immediately reopened on July 2, the day New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy allowed casinos to reopen.
“Following the Governor’s directive to postpone our indoor dining, we took a step back to reassess our reopening date to ensure we could give our guests the world-class experience they expect from us, safely,” Melanie Johnson, president and chief operating officer of The Borgata, said.
“When we reopen, Borgata will introduce new outdoor dining experiences, as well as a convenient takeout programme from several of our fine and casual dining outlets. We appreciate our guests’ and employees’ patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming them back,” she added.
