Claridge Tower at Bally's A.C.
Claridge is located between Indiana Avenue and Park Place one half block from the boardwalk. There is a one-way moving sidewalk from the boardwalk to the casino. There is also a convenient indoor pedestrian 'gateway' leading to/from Bally's Park Place and Wild Wild West Casinos.
The prime midtown location puts guests within easy access of other casinos including Caesar's and Trump Plaza, as well The Pier at Caesars.
Claridge, which originally opened in 1930, reopened as a casino in 1981. It was acquired by Park Place Entertainment (owner of Bally's and Caesars) in 2001. In December, 2002 The Claridge Casino Hotel joined Bally's Atlantic City as The Claridge Tower, thus creating the largest casino resort in Atlantic City. As a result of a corporate merger in 2005, Bally's (including Claridge) and Caesars are now owned by Caesars Entertainment Corporation (formerly Harrah's Entertainment Inc).
Claridge Tower offers 500 guest rooms and suites. Claridge's 1100 space parking garage is adjacent to the hotel, with direct access to the casino from the hotel (no long corridors or streets to cross).
We stayed in a standard room with a view of Bally's and points south. Weekday check-in was quick and efficient. The room was good sized (approximately 23' by 15'), included a fridge, two telephones, clock radio, high speed internet access, and a keyboard for accessing the internet thru the tv (fee). The bathroom was small, with a basic formica countertop, and stocked with bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, shower gel, and conditioner.
Claridge is the smallest casino in Atlantic City with 59,000 square feet of gaming space, around 1,800 slot machines, and roughly 60 table games. Some might consider its three gaming floors charming and intimate, others clausterphobic.
