Things are so rough for the luxe tower that the Borgata's parent company, Boyd Gaming, has announced that the Water Club's rooms will be closed on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through April. If you've got a midweek stay already booked for the month, your rezzie will be switched over to the Borgata's main hotel tower.
Boyd Gaming spokesman Rob Stillwell says Borgata hopes to resume full bookings at the Water Club for the summer tourism season. Stillwell says the Water Club will remain open for guests staying in suites and for special events.
This is not good. Not good at all. But we can't say we're surprised; AC tourism is in a slump, and luxury hotels haven't been much of a hit lately. Hopefully scaling back on operating costs during the slow season will help the place stay afloat because, um, we'd be sad to see it fold so soon.
