OUT At The Borgata: A Getaway For Anyone


Three easy hours away, the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ offers a getaway for the wildest partiers, the most romantic lovers, and anyone who needs a vacation from the politics and pomp of Washington, D.C.

The Borgata recently introduced OUT, a travel brand specifically for the LGBTQ guests. With the OUT offerings, the folks at the Borgata recognize that not only can gays bring the biggest party, but can also be the prime candidates for a romantic getaway or a relaxing massage.

The offerings are pretty vast, and all in all not too expensive. A room starts at $99 a night if you want to build your own experience, and customized getaways range from $163 to $699.

For the lovers, the drinkers, the partiers, and the pampered…

The Out at Borgata package gets you one night in the beautiful Fiore Suite, $50 toward food, two cocktails at Long Bar, complementary access to the Pump Room if you want to work up a sweat (outside the room) and WiFi together ($209).

The WineCation Package offers a room for two, a Vinotherapy spa treatment (wine keeps you beautiful, after all), a three-course wine dinner at the fabulous Fornelletto, and a wine tasting at the Water Club’s vintage wine boutique ($465).

Wake Up Smiling offers an overnight stay and breakfast for two, so you can go to bed happy and wake up happier knowing that a elicious, expertly prepared food is on its way to your body ($163).

The Up All Night offers dinner at the Borgata Buffet—it’s award-winning, I promise—tickets to The Comedy Club, and drinks at one of their swanky bars to keep the party going ($245).

Serenity Package gets you a night’s stay, access to the fitness center, and your choice of a Swedish massage or Hydra-Surge facial. Honey, you definitely deserve the pampering ($290).

The Rejuvenation Package offers the same, but this time, bring your lover along ($369).

The Romance Package lets you spoil your king or queen, and maybe yourself as well. $50 to a Borgata restaurant, champagne, strawberries, and a night in a beautiful room…heaven ($209).

Suite Indulgence, for the more decadent traveler, offers a night in the fabulous Fiore Suite with lots of space to play around in after reconnecting side-by-side in the Couples Suite at the spa ($699).

Reconnection Package gets you a swanky room, a Couple’s Experience massage or facial, and access to the lap pool and fitness center.

To make sure OUT is as good as it can be, The Borgata partnered with The Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance (GACGLBTA…long acronym, good group) and the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) because they know what’s up. Plus, the Borgata meets the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index 2016, so if you want to quit your job and move to AC to work there instead…let me grab my things and join you.
