So, apparently, Ocean AC resort/casino will hop on the resort fee bandwagon when they open:
http://www.theoceanac.com



If a player like yourself is charged Resort Fees, they will be open a shorter time than Revel was.

Resort Fees have infested hotels across the country and most donít have casinos attached to allow a player to bypass them.



I await an offer from Ocean AC -- I still cannot find out if, in the purchase, they gained access to the former list of players and their tier levels - I was the highest tier level at Revel - but, since this is a new place, not sure they will know or care enough to send me a comp offer

Be proactive. Once you find out who the hosts are just contact them and let them know about your previous play including other locations you have lots of action at.

I don't think you need as big of action as you think to get an independent host who would negotiate for you.

I
By far the stupidest resort fee policy I have ever seen is with CET. The resort fee includes WiFi, so if you are a Diamond member and get the resort fee waived, you have to pay for WiFi access. WTF?? CET really knows how to treat their mid-high rollers.



No - although you have to go through the pay process (bill to room) when a Diamond member at CET, no charges will show up on for it on your room - there is no resort fee or WiFi fee for Diamond (per my recent stay at The Cromwell)



About two months ago, Linq (Diamond): General front desk told me that wifi was free for everybody now and Diamond gets unlimited devices. Two days and a total of 11 device-days. Later, I have to complain at Diamond checkout to get it removed. Both were incorrect. No resort fee.

Also about two months ago, whenever that slot tournament was, Rio: Diamond check-in tells me that internet is now included for everybody, up to 2 devices per day. No problem. No resort fee.

The resort fee at $20 is one of the lower ones in town. Not a big deal.

As for access to the Revel database - they have it. Give Ocean a call and mention you had a card with Revel.
Certain players that met their qualifications, they are offering comp and casino rated rooms for resvervations beginning 6/28.

Edited to add Ocean Resort Casino phone number: (609) 783-8000.

In two years going as Diamond in AC, I have yet to be charged for using their wifi. I log in, select basic, and never see any charges.

As to Revel, I was never a big player there, but got comped rooms and free play. I called to check rates, figuring they had my info but unaware they were asking, and they gave me a horrible rate. I don't get comps at Water Club, just Borgata, but I could get a WC room cheaper than they wanted. I loved Revel, but no way am I paying $144 for a room there, plus taxes and fees. ESPECIALLY when Hard Rock gave me that same night for free, and I can stay elsewhere in the city comped.

I don't generally expect anything for free at a "new" place, but I think considering the state AC is in you better do whatever you can to get people in your property. Folks are lined up to give Ocean and HR a chance in light of how CET and MLife have treated them. HR bit the bullet and offered up rooms, because they know we are going to play there, otherwise why take the room? Guess Ocean is doing just like Revel and saying, "yeah, they'll come to us eventually".

Never thought someone could be dumber running a casino than Kevin DeSanctis was but if they offer no comp rooms to players with status elsewhere, itís game over already. I still think they will but time will tell.
Rent this space for only $9.95 a month.

I am a little concerned about the state of the rooms at the hotel. That tower sat for how many weeks, months, years with no or intermittent electricity / cooling/ heating in one of the most humid climates on the East Coast?

Not to mention, several of the Revel floors / rooms were never even finished.

I would hope that the new owners do a thorough inspection for mold and other environmental problems that could have arisen in the years Revel was dark.

Maybe the mold-inspection certificate is included in the resort fee.

At least the $20 resort fee that includes WIFI is better than the fees my sister paid on a four day cruise. She had to pay a resort fee AND a $40 WIFI fee. Garbage!

The former owner purchased the stand-a-lone power company that supplied electricity for air conditioning to the Revel. He had to purchase it to avoid the problems you mentioned.
