In Atlantic City, N.J., the opening of the first major casino project in 10 years is just five months away. Doors are set to open May 15, 2012, at Revel, the $2.5 billion beachfront resort, which boasts 1,100 guest rooms, all with views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Amenities at Revel will include 12 restaurants, two nightclubs, a 22,000-square-foot spa, a 5,500-seat theater, and significant meeting, event, and reception space. Its dedicated 70,000-square-foot event center will have both a 30,000-square-foot, column-free ballroom and a 15,000-square-foot amphitheater. In addition, a 30,000-square-foot meeting center features 20 meeting rooms and a business center. Hospitality areas include the lobby garden, high-rise suites, and a private beach, for a total of 60,000 square feet of indoor hospitality space and 90,000 square feet outdoors.

The 20-acre property, located next to Atlantic City’s Showboat Hotel and Casino, is two and a half hours south of New York City and an hour north of Philadelphia.
