While stylish players like the Borgata have boosted A.C.’s appeal, Revel ups the stakes. The gleaming glass complex occupies 20 acres of beachfront, and all 1,898 of the contemporary rooms have ceiling-height windows framing ocean views.

At the heart of the multilevel resort is the casino, conceived by Cirque du Soleil theater designers Scéno Plus. Pulsing with 2,439 slot machines, the space features such flourishes as the Slot Dome—a conical overhead HD video installation.

A lush roof garden leads to a large, partly enclosed pool and private cabanas. Take advantage of the Exhale spa, Bask, and luxuriate in the bar-serviced bathhouse, equipped with a healing Himalayan salt room.

An upscale culinary theme park offers 14 eateries, including an outpost of Iron Chef Jose Garces’s Philly tapas bar, Amada, two bistros by James Beard Award winner Michel Richard and a Marc Forgione steakhouse. After dinner, catch a burlesque show; later this summer, you’ll also have the option of a four-level nightclub overlooking the sea. The resort’s theater attracts stadium-filling names: Beyoncé returns to the stage May 25 to 27 for the resort’s official premiere. (855-348-0500, revelresorts.com). Rates $239–$999; mention TONY when booking by phone to receive complimentary continental breakfast at O2 restaurant and a day pass to Bask spa through May 24.
