A trade show found me in Atlantic City for a few days this week. In the past I had stayed at the Borgata, Caesar’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino, Harrah’s Resort & Casino, and the Revel (which is now Ocean Casino Resort) as well as the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel. I had not been back since 2018 and while some things are the same, the city has definitely seen better days. The homeless population has increased dramatically and many businesses have shuttered. That said, the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel was a convenient base (especially since the event was in the convention center and I did not have to step outside to get there.

Anthony’s Take: The Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel served my needs for a short, two-night stay. I was able to easily get to the convention center without venturing into the cold and rain. The room was adequate and had been refurbished since I was last here. All of the staff I encountered were friendly and seemed happy to be there.


The room was booked for me on a convention rate of $125 per night. I was able to add the reservation to my Marriott Bonvoy® account and my Titanium status was recognized. All of the attendees from my company were booked into King, Club Level Guest Rooms.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

I flew into Atlantic City International Airport and landed around 10:00 PM. It was a short 20-minute ride to the hotel and an Uber Comfort cost $38. I took an Uber Comfort back to the airport. It took the same time and cost $41.

As mentioned the hotel is conveniently attached to the Atlantic City Convention Center. It’s a few-minute walk to Starbucks and many stores and about 10 minutes to the boardwalk.

Sheraton AC Check In


When I arrived, there was no line. I was quickly provided with room keys and handed vouchers for breakfast (I did not get the chance to use these as I was in meetings early each morning). The desk agent also told me that the lounge was open on the 16th floor for snacks and drinks 24 hours a day. I asked about an upgrade and was told that they were fully booked. I had been booked into a King, Club Level Guest Room by my company and that is what I received. I also inquired about late checkout and was told they could grant me a 2:00 PM checkout. Convention center and resort hotels do not have to provide this benefit, and 2:00 PM worked out for me.

Sheraton AC 1505

King, Club Level Guest Room (1505)

There are 502 rooms and suites at the hotel. I was on the 15th floor (of 16 floors total).

Sheraton AC Hallway

The last time I stayed at the Sheraton was around 2010. The hotel rooms were rather rundown at that point. I’m happy to report that the rooms and hallways have been refreshed and mine was in good condition. Upon entering, there is a closet to the right and a bathroom to the left.

Sheraton AC Closet 1


Sheraton AC Closet 2

The closet had an iron, ironing board, robe, and safe.

Sheraton AC Bathroom

Across was the bathroom. It wasn’t spacious, but it provided enough space not to feel crammed in either.

Sheraton AC Bathtub

The water pressure was decent in the shower/tub combo.

Sheraton AC Vanity


Sheraton AC Toilet

The bathroom also had a single sink vanity and a toilet (as well as lots of towels).

Sheraton AC Toiletries

Toiletries were a mix of brands, and I was provided with replacements that did not match these on the second day. This could be blamed on supply chain issues but felt like they were just providing whatever they could get.

Sheraton AC Blowdryer

There was also a blowdryer on the sink.

Sheraton AC Outlets

The bedroom had lots of outlets including several by the bed (with USB ports on the side).

Sheraton AC Bed

The king-sized bed was comfortable.

Sheraton AC Chair

Next to the bed was a chair as well as an ice bucket and some water.

Sheraton AC Desk

There was a desk and another chair in the corner.

Sheraton AC TV

Across from the bed was a dresser with a TV on top.

Sheraton AC Microwave

Next to the dresser was a refrigerator and a microwave.

Sheraton AC Table

Another small table was next to the closet. It had a coffeemaker and everything needed for coffee or tea.

Sheraton AC Lobby

Public Areas & Amenities

The lobby has a small store that sells coffee as well as sundries and souvenirs. You’ll find lots of Miss America memorabilia and pictures throughout the building. The stairwell near the elevators was flanked with several tiaras and dresses.

Vanessa Williams

A portrait of Vanessa Williams hangs on the way to the convention center. She was the first African-American woman to receive the Miss America title and was crowned in 1984.

Sheraton AC Elevators

The elevators in the lobby are in need of some updating (they creaked and struggled a bit as I rode them).

Sheraton AC 16th Floor

They open on the 16th floor directly to the lounge (a key card is required for floors 15 and 16).

Sheraton AC Lounge 1

It did not have much in the way of offerings, but did have lots of seating.

Sheraton AC Lounge 3

There were couches and tables (plus a TV). If I were there longer, I would have used it as a space to work.

Sheraton AC Lounge 2

There was no one there either time I visited.

Sheraton AC Lounge Granola Bars


Sheraton AC Lounge Snack Mix

There were some granola bars and snack mixes for food.

Sheraton AC Lounge Cups


Sheraton AC Coffee

Coffee was the only beverage choice. Nothing else was provided.

Sheraton AC Lounge 4

There was also a computer and printer available for guest use.

Sheraton Atlantic City Fitness Center

The hotel has a fitness center, but I did not get the chance to use it. The website shows a spa, but this is misleading. If you click it, you’re directed to the Borgata, which is several miles away.

Overall Impression: The Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel serves its purpose. It provides a convenient and clean accommodation attached to the space where many conventions and shows take place. While I did not get to use the facilities or have breakfast, I was pleased with the friendliness of the staff and overall experience.

Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: When I’m staying at a Marriott hotel, I want to maximize my points earned. My card of choice is the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card. With it, I earn six Marriott Bonvoy® points for each dollar spent at hotels participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program. It also includes up to $300 statement credits per calendar year (up to $25 per month ) for dining in restaurants worldwide. Plus, a free night award that I can redeem at any Marriott hotel with a redemption level at or under 85,000 Marriott Bonvoy® points. Rates & fees. Terms apply.
