Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino Expected to Close in September
The owners of Atlantic City's Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino announced they expect to shut down Sept. 16, according to press reports. Notice of the expected closing of the 906-room property are set to go out this week to the resort's 1,000-plus employees. The closure could be the fourth casino resort to close in the destination this year. In January, the 804-room Atlantic Club was shuttered (developers plan to convert it to a nongaming resort/condo complex), while Caesars Entertainment announced the 1,300-room Showboat Atlantic City would close Aug. 31. The fourth property, the 1,800-room Revel Casino Hotel, filed its second bankruptcy in June and warned employees they could be laid off beginning on Aug. 18 if a buyer can't be found.
