Hard Rock, Tropicana and other Atlantic City casinos are taking hotel reservations Rebecca Everett, NJ.com · May 20, 2020 at 3:24 am Their casino gambling floors remain closed until further notice, but some Atlantic City establishments are still taking reservations for hotel rooms as early as next week. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is allowing room reservations as early as May 28, followed by the Tropicana, Caesars and Resorts Casino Hotel starting on June 7, according to their websites. The Ocean canceled all previous reservations up to June 14, according to its website, but is taking online reservations starting June 15. A spokeswoman said the Hard Rock never stopped taking hotel reservations but simply re-evaluates every week whether it can honor those reservations based on the governor’s restrictions. It has no plans to reopen the hotel room rentals before the casino can fully reopen, she said.
