"It has been an incredible 10 years during which Borgata has developed and evolved into the market-leading destination resort we are today," stated Borgata President and Chief Operating Officer, Tom Ballance.

After igniting Atlantic City's revival with its 2003 opening as the first new property in 13 years, Borgata has experienced a decade of overwhelming popularity. Presenting a destination designed to rival those once found only in Las Vegas with world-class entertainment; celebrity chef restaurants such as Bobby Flay Steak and Wolfgang Puck American Grille; 2,000 lavishly appointed guestrooms and suites; and exciting nightlife options such as MIXX and mur.mur all under one roof. The debut of the $400 million Water Club at Borgata in 2008 raised the bar and marked an evolution in the rebirth of Atlantic City. The city's first boutique-lifestyle hotel represents Borgata's progressive departure from the archetypal experience of the past with 800 guestrooms and suites; a two-story spa on the 32nd floor; five heated indoor and outdoor pools; and food and beverage hospitality by renowned Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. The Water Club completed Borgata's master plan development, bringing the total investment into the resort destination to over $2 billion.
