Holiday shopping can be a hectic thing, what with the traffic, the crowds, trying to find a parking spot in the same area code as the store you wanted to visit and so on. And who doesn’t love 78 consecutive hours of canned mall Christmas music? (2,700 versions of “Jingle Bells” and counting.)
At this point, you’re probably thinking that we at the Borgata Blog are about to plug a nice little getaway to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a relaxing, stress-free, pre-holiday break. Which is great—especially if you take advantage of our monthly spa specials.
But there’s an even easier way to allow Borgata to take some of the crazy out of holiday shopping. And that’s to Shop Borgata from home at our online store. And from now to December 28, ShopBorgata.com is offering a holiday sale or 25 percent off on all items.
That includes all of ShopBorgata.com’s category’s from the Gifts of Comfort (bedding, blankets, sheets), to items for the Spa Connoisseur (robes, aromatherapy) to gifts for the Foodie (cookbooks, margarita glasses, aprons).
It’s an impressive list of online items at great prices that you can check out here.
Did you ever think about the simple concept of the wish? You want something so you wish for it. No big deal right?
Wrong. The whole concept of the wish has dominated literature, fairy tales and folklore since the first caveman wished for a sharper rock to cut his mammoth steak.
We make wishes by throwing coins into wells and fountains or by blowing out birthday candles. We make a wish when we see a shooting star, or just the first star of the night. In fiction we’ve dreamed up genies to give out three wishes or a host of magical items to wish upon.
And some of us just out muscled some poor family member to snap the big end of the Thanksgiving turkey’s wishbone.
Well, we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa love wishes too. So much, in fact, that we’ve created the Wish List Sweepstakes on our Borgata Facebook Page.
Each week we’ll give you, our Facebook friends, the chance to choose between three different prizes in the Wish List Sweepstakes. It’s sort of a twist on the three wishes as voter’s choose from three prizes on the wish list.
Have you heard about Cyber Monday? It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving when robots from the future invade thinking everyone is too hopped up on leftover pumpkin pie and turkey sandwiches to resist.
No wait. That’s Cyborg Monday.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers up so much to do, sometimes it can be a little hard keeping track of it all.
Great nightlife, fantastic dining, amazing shows and entertainment, luxurious rooms, decadent spas, heart-pounding casino action, the best live poker room on the East Coast—the list goes on and on.
So it’s no wonder people like to play here. But those very amenities that make Borgata a great playground also make it the perfect place to do business.
Let us explain.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is the premiere meeting and event venue in Atlantic City and for that matter the country. Just ask the folks at Smart Meetings magazine, which has named Borgata a winner in its 11th annual Platinum Choice Awards for meeting venues in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Smart Meetings’ readers pick the winners based on venues that set exemplary standards in a range of categories, including ambiance, amenities, breadth of resources, facility quality, guest services, meeting space, meeting packages, recreational activities, restaurant and dining facilities, and technical support.
That’s a lot of categories and Borgata excels at them all.
Here’s a poorly kept secret about Atlantic City. For all of our fun-in-the-sun summer reputation, the fall may be the best time to “DO AC”.
The weather stays nice well into October, the ocean stays warm even longer and the city is still cooking with shows and events right into the winter and beyond.
Leading that charge is Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. The outside temperature may start cooling, but Borgata is still heating up with a full lineup of Borgata Nightlife events, great comedians at the Borgata Comedy Club, great dining and four-star shows at the Borgata Event Center and Music Box.
So if you missed that summer getaway (or even if you didn’t), a fall getaway to Borgata can be just as great. And even more so with our special Fall Getaway Package.
It’s been another wonderful summer season at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and we’re ready to keep the party going through Labor Day Weekend.
And we do mean party as we’ve lined up one of the best entertainment weekends you’ll see at any time of year.
It starts Friday, August 29 with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue bringing in the funk at the Borgata Music Box at 9pm. Tickets available here.
Saturday, rockers Train come into the Borgata Event Center (tickets available here) while comedian Demetri Martin plays the Music Box. Tickets.
Congrats go out to Anthony D. of Rahway NJ, the winner of the first Borgata Social Dash held Saturday August 23.
The Borgata Dash is a Borgata Facebook promotion where fans watch for clues on Borgata’s Facebook page. The first player to physically go to where the clues lead redeems a prize.
Anthony D. was pretty good at it, winning the grand prize of an overnight stay at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, bottle service at MIXX or mur.mur and $100 credit to Izakaya.
The 2nd and 3rd place winners received a $100 dining credit to Izakaya and the 4th through 7th place winners won complimentary admission to MIXX or mur.mur.
We’re holding a Borgata Social Dash every Saturday through September 20.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is known for a lot of things—great rooms, magnificent spas, tremendous entertainment and restaurants, the best casino action in Atlantic City … it’s a long list.
But never forget that Borgata is on the Jersey Shore and a day at the beach is always part of the summer package.
Guests at Borgata can take advantage of Borgata’s free weekend shuttle to the beautiful beaches of neighboring Brigantine Beach just across Absecon Inlet. And we’ll even throw in the beach tags.
The free shuttle runs Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting) through August 31. Hours are 10am to 6pm.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers the best getaway options in Atlantic City and one of the best ways to take advantage is through our special hotel packages. The packages combine Borgata amenities such as spas visits and fitness center workouts with a stay in Borgata’s classic rooms into one economic package.
This June, in honor of Gay Pride month, Borgata put together a special PRIDE package at The Water Club designed specifically for the LGBT community. June may be gone, but Borgata’s PRIDE hotel package remains available through August.
Starting at $279, the package includes an overnight stay at one of The Water Club Hotel’s amazing Vista rooms offering panoramic water views.
So, it’s June in Atlantic City at the South Jersey Shore and people’s thoughts are beginning to drift to one thing—time for a dip in the pool.
Ok, technically, Atlantic City is surrounded by tranquil bays and this thing they call the Atlantic Ocean. And yeah you can swim in it. And yes, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa takes advantage of the area’s beautiful beaches (Look for our daily beach shuttle to the beaches in Brigantine Beach starting in July).
But, here on the marina-side of Atlantic City, Borgata and The Water Club do pools—big, luxurious, sand-free, seagull-free, little-hermit-crabs-that-bite-you-free pools (ok, that last one doesn’t really happen anywhere, but you get the idea).
Borgata and The Water Club offer guests six beautiful pools including the Borgata pools and gardens at Spa Toccare and the lap pool at Immersion Spa.
But it’s at The Water Club that you really get that summer pool experience.
