ATLANTIC CITY

Ocean Resort Casino will join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand. The three billion-dollar property was recently acquired by AC Ocean Walk and sits on 20 acres of the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

At 60 stories tall, it will be the tallest structure in Atlantic City. The hotel will be operated by AC Ocean Walk and is expected to reopen in summer 2018.

"We are excited to be affiliating Ocean Resort Casino with The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, and to be introducing Hyatt to Atlantic City, one of the nation's most visited resort and casino destinations," said David Tarr, senior vice president of development, Americas, Hyatt.

"AC Ocean Walk's spectacular resort will establish a new standard on Atlantic City's storied Boardwalk, making it a fitting addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio," he added.

The 1,399-room property will be the eighth hotel in North America to open as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio, which launched in 2016.

The expansive 6.4 million-square-foot resort will feature 160,000 square feet of indoor meeting and convention space with another 90,000 square feet of flexible outdoor special event space.

The property will also boast a 138,000-square-foot luxury casino, five swimming pools, including a salt-water pool, a sun deck with cabanas, and distinctive dining from restaurant groups Garces Group and LDV Hospitality, as well as entertainment experiences that will feature lively day and nightclubs and a best-in-class sports bar.

The resort will include an onsite location of exhale, Hyatt's newly acquired fitness and spa brand, which will feature 32 treatment rooms, a mind body studio and retail boutique.

The new spa will be the first exhale experience to open within a Hyatt-branded property.
