Harrah's Atlantic City Giving Out Free Hotel Rooms To New Yorkers This Thursday
New Yorkers in the Financial District might get lucky this Thursday and it won't have anything to do with the stock market or the boozy after-work happy hour.
As a way to promote their new Water Tower, the Harrah's Resort Atlantic City is going to be giving away $1 million worth of free hotel rooms in four major East Coast cities, starting May 15th in New York.
All lucky consumers who receive the keys in New York City's Financial District, specifically the Canyon of Heroes area on lower Broadway near the 4/5 Wall St. subway station, between the hours of 11:00am to 2:00pm, will be invited to reserve their complimentary room for one night only - Thursday, June 5, 2008 - designated Harrah's Loves New York Night.
How to spot the Harrah's reps? They will be logo-painted so you can't miss them. Logo-painted? Yup we were curious about that too. A rep says:
They'll be dressed in body paint, with the Harrah's logo painted on them
So there's really no excuse for not getting a free room here. And don't worry, we'll pop down to the FiDi on Thursday to snap a picture of these logo-painted peeps.

The promotion will then hit up Philadelphia on May 20th, Washington, DC on May 22nd and Baltimore on May 28th. Winners in all cities will stay overnight at The Waterfront Tower of Harrah's Resort Atlantic City on consecutive Thursday nights in June 2008.
The 525-foot Waterfront Tower with 44-stories and 960 guestrooms has won the honor of being the second tallest buidling in New Jersey. (The first is the Goldman Sachs tower in Jersey City). The hotel also boasts an 86,000-gallon heated pool, The WaterFront Shops and new Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa.
Could this be a new trend? Instead of offering introductory rates will hotels offer free rooms? We hope so. For now, doing this promotion was certainly a good way to distinguish the Water Tower from the Water Club at the Borgata which is due to open in June.
