Hotel RegistrationWhile Bally's, Caesars and Harrah's each has its own "VIP Check-In" room, these could get very crowded, especially on Thursday and Friday. Consider using the Seven Stars Check-In at the front desk.
Taxes & Fees - All guests are responsible for from $5 to $8 in additional taxes and fees, and sales and occupancy taxes are additional on all paid rooms.

Please be prepared with the times (first and second choices) that you wish to take the ocean cruise (see below).
If you're staying at Caesars or Bally's and attending events at Harrah's (or staying at Harrah's and planning to attend events at Caesars), buses will be running continuously among the properties Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m.
Buses will depart from the entrance to Harry's Oyster Bar at Bally's (same location as the Total Rewards Shuttle, next to valet parking), Bay 10 in the Bus Lobby at Caesars, and the Brigantine entrance (near Bill's Bar & Burger) at Harrah's.
Other alternatives if you don't have your own vehicle, or choose not to use it, are:
Total Express Shuttle - Shuttles will be running on a special schedule (10 a.m. to 2 a.m.), but seating is limited. Seven Stars cardholders get priority boarding status. (To find the boarding locations for the shuttle, check any of those casinos' pages on the Seven Stars Insider Web site. Click on the links above and scroll down to "Getting Around Atlantic City".)
Cabs - Maximum fare for up to five passengers within town is $13, plus tip.
Weather permitting, there will be four boat cruises on the Spirit of Cape May per day on Friday and Saturday, June 26 and 27, one each at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 and 4 p.m. Guests will choose a time (based on availability) when they register for the weekend events. Guests will be allowed one time slot only over the two days. Once on board guests will enjoy scenic views of Atlantic City; cocktails and light fare (cheese, crackers and crudité) will be served.

Reserved Beach Areas
From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday (weather permitting) go to the beach area in front of Bally's or Caesars, show your Seven Stars card at the beach shed, and you will get two chairs and an umbrella. There also will be beverage service available, and beverages will be complimentary. [NOTE: This is a change to what previously was announced.]
Total Rewards Center
The Total Rewards Centers at Bally's, Caesars and Harrah's are open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Atlantic City has Seven Stars Lounges both at Caesars and Harrah's. They can become very crowded – especially at lunchtime on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as cocktail hour. Unlike the Atlantic City Diamond Lounges which feature buffets, the Seven Stars Lounges offer guests menus with a limited selection of appetizers (a cheese plate, assorted dry snacks, shrimp cocktail, etc.), sandwiches, soups, "small plates" and desserts. Drinks may be taken out of the lounges, but only after being decanted into plastic cups available at the door.
Valet parking is complimentary for Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders, but Seven Stars cardholders get priority service. Be sure to show your card to the valet attendant who parks your vehicle and, again, when you retrieve it. Except at Bally's, the location where you drop off your car is not the same as where you retrieve it. Be sure to ask if you're not sure where to go.
Self-parking in adjacent garages is complimentary for Platinum, Diamond and Seven Stars cardholders.
Seven Stars Lounges
Harrah's - For the Seven Stars Signature Event weekend only, there will be a small buffet to speed up service. The lounge has a small bar and comfortable seating, but many times seats go empty because there are too many tables and groupings for four, when parties of two are more the norm. Ask if you can share a table. It will get you seated faster and you might get to meet some new friends.
Caesars - Smaller than the lounge at Harrah's, the large rectangular bar in the center of the room is its most distinctive feature. Again if you see a table that seats four, ask if you can share.
The lounges will be open:
When the Seven Stars Lounges are not open, Seven Stars cardholders are welcome to enjoy the Diamond Lounges at Bally's, Caesars and Harrah's. The Diamond Lounges offer priority entrance to Seven Stars cardholders, and allow up to three additional guests. If there are others waiting to get in, simply walk in the lounge and present your card to the host. At extremely busy times when there is often a long line – especially when the club first opens – a security guard may be stationed at the door monitoring "traffic". Again, simply show your card to him/her, and you will receive immediate entry. Each offers a full buffet consisting of cold cuts, salads, desserts and at least three, if not four, hot entrees. Drinks may be taken out of the lounges, but only after being decanted into plastic cups available at the door.
Bally's - The large Diamond Lounge overlooking the Atlantic Ocean has a huge bar which seats approximately 50 people. Bartender Sandy works hard to keep up with orders from the servers and those sitting at the bar. There is plenty of other seating for parties of two, four or more. Bally's Diamond Lounge is the only one that serves breakfast items from noon to 2 p.m.
Caesars - The large Diamond Lounge, also overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, has a small bar which seats approximately 20 people. Be sure to say "hi" to Anthony if he's working. He'll take good care of you. There is plenty of other seating for parties of two, four or more. The window seats overlooking the Boardwalk are the most coveted and there literally are races for those tables when the doors first open.
Harrah's - The Diamond Lounge has a small bar [look for Debbie (her nametag says Deborah and she won a "Best Bartender" award in 2014 – there's a photo and plaque above the bar) and Magee – they're among Harrah's best and friendliest bartenders, and they really watch out for their customers, often stepping out from behind the bar to take orders or help clean tables]. There is plenty of other seating for parties of two, four or more.
Current hours at all the Diamond Lounges are:
Monday - Thursday: 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.* (Bally's is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays)
Friday: Noon to 11 p.m.* (June 26 only)
Saturday: Noon to 11 p.m.*
Sunday: Noon to 8 p.m.*
Coyote Kate's Slot Parlor, and the adjacent Mountain Bar, gaming area, beer pong, mechanical bull, Wild Wings and the dance floor are closed until July 1 while renovations continue. The World Series of Poker room is still open, as are Rita's, Gold Tooth Gertie's and Boardwalk Cupcakes.
