I have said it before and I will repeat my opinion here.
Straub bought Revel hoping to flip it. Since no buyer has emerged as of yet he is stuck with it.
HardRock propably could have purchased Revel for less then the 330 million+ they are spending on the Taj.
Revel has many design flaws for a casino. These flaws are not an easy fix.
Straub has gotten much free puplicity for his property.
Genius Acadamy, Syrian refugees, Rope courses, Water Park high speed ferry etc. But follow just what he has actually spent his money on, next to el zippo. He likes to rant and rave about licensing and other stumbling blocks. It is just bluster to keep his venture in the news.If he wanted to Revel could open in short order.
However, he knows full well that with a staff in excess of 2,500, Revel will probably loose more money open then sitting idle. It was estimated the building costs 1-1.5 million a month as it sits.
IMHO Revel will remain TALL DARK AND EMPTY for the foreseeable future.

I didn't think so. (-;

I have said it many times, the place was awesome, it's the only casino I truly ever thought was awesome.

The casino has a circular floor plan.

The first time I visited the casino, I decided to walk the casino floor to see what they had to offer. I started walking and ended up right where I started. I walked in a circle.

There was only one small restroom each for men and women. You had to leave the casino floor to use the restroom.

No water fountains.

The biggest flaw was that there was no buffet.

I Didn't like that there wasn't an entrance from the boardwalk.

I think they did it to help keep the undesirables out,though they wouldn't publicly say that.

You could get into the building from the boardwalk, but still had to go up the elevator or escalator to get on the casino floor. With all the others you walk in off the boardwalk right into the casino.

The inconvenient part of the design was that it was a relatively long walk to get from the casino to the bank of elevators up to the rooms.

That said, I wish Hard Rock was moving into Revel instead of the Taj since it's so much newer and fresher.

There was one restroom for the men in the casino. It had one urinal and one toilet. There was one restroom for the women in the casino. According to my wife it had two toilet stalls. Often there was a line to get in.

There were additional toilets for patrons but they were not in the casino. They were located on the same floor but outside the casino.

I could easily be mistaken, but I took Axel's "?????" not as doubting your post but as a slight joke on the wording. Suppose that "use the restroom" means to relieve oneself that that "leave the casino floor" did not mean to get on an elevator or escalator but just to get outside of the area where the tables and machines were located, as is often the usage. Perhaps Axel thought it both proper and amusing that one should poop somewhere else rather than on a crap table.
