That’s because AC knows it has a captive audience. The only competition is Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun which are both a) farther away and b) more expensive to get to from NYC.

Yes. And I hate them.

I think it’s time to lower your standards — there are plenty of places to stay near the casinos for less than a $100/night.

It’s a matter of supply. There are far fewer rooms in AC. There’s always been a room shortage there. In Vegas, you have all these mega-casinos with 4,000-5,000 rooms that you simply don’t have in AC.

That’s because they’re expecting an influx of guys from Wall Street who aren’t allowed to short any more.

First time I post here in about 3 years, and it’s about AC. Go figure.
Yeah… I actually had a comp cancelled on me for the first time, like, ever. I didn’t know they could do that. So I’m shelling out $600 to spend the weekend. Unreal.
