    An East Coast offshoot of the Las Vegas classic, Caesars Atlantic City has become a landmark in its Atlantic City, New Jersey home. With towering columns aspiring to the aesthetic heights of ancient Rome, this immense casino hotel offers tempting diversions. The hotel's theme carries through to the tranquil QUA Baths and Spa; however, some visitors felt that while the guest rooms were impeccably clean, they were also a bit on the plain side. On the other hand, Caesars' on-site facilities (including the popular Playground at Caesars, the pool and deck, and the numerous dining venues like the trendy Buddakan at the Playground and Morton's The Steakhouse) earn rave reviews. But let's be honest: The highlight of this property is the expansive casino, which boasts a wide array of table games and slot machines.

    • Free WiFi

    A night in the Atlantic City area doesn't have to mean bright lights and smoky casinos; instead, head about 11 miles northwest to the Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club in Galloway, New Jersey. This member of the Dolce Hotels and Resorts family (and the Wyndham Hotel Group) features spacious guest rooms with antique furniture, flat-screen TVs and complimentary wireless internet access. Plus, if you've brought your clubs along, the resort's two golf courses are backed by some impressive coastal vistas. If hitting the links isn't your forte, the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa provides a variety of massages and skin treatments, while the two pools (one indoor and one outdoor) provide an enjoyable setting for some family-friendly fun. No matter how you spend your day, the hotel's Main Dining Room and its more casual Coastal Grille serve up hearty plates of American cuisine that recent visitors say isn't to be missed. However, prepare to pay a pretty penny for all this pampering: Many guests say rooms rates and meals at the on-site eateries can be pricey.
