According to hotel and casino representatives, all properties had a busy weekend during Labor Day holiday weekend. Officials of the Tropicana Casino & Resort said business “bounced back” from Hurricane Irene, and added that the hotel reached its maximum capacity Friday through Sunday of the holiday weekend.
The same situation repeated at the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino and Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, with each property selling out hotel rooms Friday through Sunday. Resorts Casino Hotel also saw a great holiday weekend with the hotel sold out all three days, Friday-Sunday.
Atlantic City attractions, shows, restaurants and nightclubs also saw the crowds come out during 2011’s Labor Day weekend. In addition, information released by the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) shows that more visitors arrived to the city earlier than in previous years.
“The estimated Atlantic City Expressway numbers provided by SJTA show that visitors are planning their Atlantic City vacations in advance. Not only are they arriving earlier in time to spend the weekend in Atlantic City, but they are staying more nights, which is good business for everyone.” said Jeff Vasser, president of the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority.
