Hyatt Hotels Corporation reports that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement that will see AC Ocean Walk’s Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City to become part of Hyatt’s Unbound Collection. Ocean Resort Casino was formerly known as Revel, a $2.4 billion resort that opened in 2012 and had to close in 2014 after filing for bankruptcy. 

Hyatt’s Unbound Collection is a collection of unique and independent stay experiences, according to Hyatt. Ocean Resort Casino, which is projected to reopen this summer, is situated on 20 acres of the Atlantic City Boardwalk and, at 710 feet and 60 stories tall, is the tallest structure in Atlantic City. 

The 1,399-room resort will have a 138,000-square-foot luxury casino, 160,000 square feet of indoor meeting and convention space with another 90,000 square feet of flexible outdoor special event space, five swimming pools, including a salt-water pool, a sun deck with cabanas, and distinctive dining from premiere restaurant groups Garces Group and LDV Hospitality and entertainment experiences that will feature lively day and nightclubs and a best-in-class sports bar. The resort will include a 32,000-square-foot 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.
