There were some indications that Atlantic City enjoyed increased visitation over the Memorial Day weekend, according to the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority.
At Resorts Casino, hotel revenues and restaurant covers were up from the holiday weekend a year ago, and the show “Believe: Divas in a Man’s World” was sold out on Sunday and Monday, and close to capacity on Friday and Saturday.
At Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal, hotel rooms were sold out all three nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Two shows by comedian Kevin Hart at the Taj Mahal were sold out, with more than 20,000 tickets sold. And the Taj Mahal reported that new casino player sign-ups for its players’ club card were up 46 percent from a year ago.
The Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel is not a casino-hotel, but it was sold out every day of the weekend, representing a 7 percent increase over last Memorial Day.
