You can reserve your room in either the Ocean Tower or the Rendezvous Tower.

Ocean Tower/Deluxe Room
The rooms in the Ocean Tower are conveniently located for easy access to the boardwalk, most of the restaurants at Resorts as well as most of the meeting rooms for our seminars and events.

Rendezvous Tower/Premier Room
The rooms in the Rendezvous Tower are very large and spacious.  They are great if you are sharing a room with another person attending the convention and for families.  A short walk past the casino and hotel lobby gets you to the boardwalk, restaurants and meeting rooms.

All the rooms at Resorts have had recent updates and/or renovations.  The Rendezvous Tower is the newer tower.  Please make note that the casino is not smoke free.  There is a smoking section.  While you do not have to walk through this section of the casino to get to the Rendezvous Tower you do walk past it.
