Borgata plans $55M remodel of renamed MGM Tower

Water Club to be rebranded and deliver luxurious new room and suite experiences

Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa is embarking on a $55 million redesign and rebranding of the Water Club to deliver one of the city’s premier luxury resort experiences, according to a Tuesday announcement. Renamed the MGM Tower, the new offerings will feature more than 700 completely reimagined guestrooms and add a collection of luxury Vista Suites located at the tower’s corners with extraordinary wraparound views of the Atlantic City skyline.

“Introducing the MGM Tower connects Borgata with the unparalleled entertainment and resort experiences MGM Resorts is recognized for worldwide. We are incredibly proud of Borgata and its industry-leading team of employees, and we believe this significant reinvestment will drive visitation to Atlantic City well into the future,” Corey Sanders, chief operating officer for MGM Resorts International, said.

The remodel spans all aspects of the experience, from arrival to new accommodations reflecting a contemporary and playful personality with nautical design elements inspired by Atlantic City’s breathtaking Marina District.

Light and airy guest rooms will feature bright yet warm decor with a nautical palette of neutral and blue tones accented with deep wood finishes embodying a sophisticated coastal feel. Joining the resort’s opulent collection of existing suites, the newly created Vista Suites will feature an expansive living space, private bedroom, two bathrooms and a spacious dining area ideal for entertaining.

Entertainment, nightlife and dining, for which Borgata is known, as well as seasonal pools, luxury shopping and the resort’s spectacular waterfront location, plus newly remodeled rooms in the MGM Tower will be available beginning in April, with the project slated for completion by Memorial Day weekend.

Borgata also is introducing a versatile 9,000-square-foot event space on the 32nd floor with unrivaled views and exceptional tailor-made event capabilities in the location of the former Immersion Spa.

“As we approach the resort’s 20th anniversary, we are more committed than ever to remaining a leader in hospitality and entertainment by continuing to evolve the Borgata experience,” Travis Lunn, the resort’s president and chief operating officer, said. “We look forward to sharing our new vision with Borgata’s incredible guests in the coming months.”

Designing the MGM Tower was crafted in partnership with MGM Resorts International Design Group and award-winning international interior design firm RVD Associates. The MGM Tower’s design motif embraces its natural geographic surroundings and extraordinary water views of the Marina District.

East-facing rooms will boast floor-to-ceiling windows over the Atlantic, while west-facing rooms will feature sightlines of the grassy marshland in the distance.

Designed with dual function in mind, elegance and leisure blend with each element of the room. Majestic views take center stage in each room, with a multiuse table crafted to support present-day needs such as an afternoon of work or an intimate dining experience. Guest room corridors, elevator vestibules and the resort’s lobby also will embody the nautical and warm personality of the tower with a light, refreshed design.
