Ironically, Brendan Byrne, governor of New Jersey in the early 1980s, had decried what he called “Patch and Paint” jobs of the city’s old resorts, referring to Resorts Atlantic City and the Dennis Hotel, and lobbied hard for the old structures to be torn down in favor of new resorts. Just over 30 years later, the "patched and painted" hotel that sits above the abandoned casino remains open to guests. I have actually had the pleasure of staying in one of the rooms. The rooms had been recently renovated, but it's very obvious that the building is extremely old. The ceilings are perhaps only seven feet high, the bathrooms are very small, and the windows in the skyscraper actually open!
