The Water Club is not just a hotel say its managers, it's an experience. It is Borgata's new 43 story tower that drips wealth at every turn. From exclusive shops, to tasteful decor with wood finishes, marble, and all natural elements.

Last September, fire damaged part of the tower's facade during construction. It set the project back 4 months but now the water club is ready to debut with 800 rooms and 800 employees.

General manager Drew Schlesinger said customers will get a one to one ratio in the level of service. "This isn't a hotel where a guest will go and get something. We always will bring it to you. No is not an option," said Schlesinger.

Despite falling casino revenues, Borgata's owners believe the Borgata brand will continue to attract a young, hip and wealthy clientel. Every room has a water view and runs between 300 and 700 dollars a night. There are 3 not yet ready 15 thousand dollars a night suites, and a 36 thousand square foot spa with spectacular views. A variety of indoor and outdoor pools with infinity edges were enjoyed today by family and friends of Borgata. "It's beautiful, said Brian Cashin of Hoboken. It's a little secluded from all the hustle and bustle."

New York chef Geoffrey Zakarian is the consulting chef at the sunroom, a light fare restaurant with lush foliage.

Zakarian told action news, "We have an incredible hamburger. I sort of reinvented the Philly cheese steak for the market. We've had a great response." He said they also do a great bruchetta and european platters. All 800 rooms of this elegant 400 million dollar addition to the A.C. skyline will be open by June 19 with a ribbon cutting scheduled for the 27th.
