Trying to Logon to Borgata site got Boyd Gaming(?)

I know Borgata has ties with Boyd Gaming; when I entered www.theborgata.com to try to log onto my acct, I got Boyd's general (nationwide) web site. I'm assuming that since The Borgata shut down for the storm, they are directing all inquiries through Boyd
[There does not appear to be anyway of logging onto one's acct, even though it has a Borgata (sub)area.]

Don't stress.

It was working yesterday.

My guess, probably IT/storm Related (perhaps, they are working on the site/updates/etc).

If there is anything urgent, you can call Borgata Customer Care at 609-317-1000.

Is there something urgent you needed? Especially considering that most of AC is currently under-water.

No, nothing special. In another thread, I surmised that the Marina area casinos should have fared better than the boardwalk casinos, and was curious if Borgata had posted updated info on their web site.
PS: I did get a confirming email from them shortly after my startting this thread, for my upcoming stay this weekend--but that was probably through some automatic system they have in place.

Borgata had an update on their website yesterday saying they would be closed Monday and Tuesday, and reopen when it is safe for customers and employees.

I left Borgata on Saturday night, since I didn't want to deal with the rush (before closure) on Sunday morning.

And, yes, that is an automated message. They always send one a few days before your stay.

I was staying at Harrahs and left Sunday morning. I was returning by Greyhound bus to NYC; since Ballys has the most departures, I went to Ballys at 11:00 AM--there were over 100 people on line (and it was growing). Based on the departure schedule I may have gotten out by 4 pm--but they had three extra buses coming in and I got to NYC by 2:15 pm.

You are a brave person. Those buses are pretty gross, IMO.

You should get Harrah's to provide a limo to NYC (you are 7Star, right? )

It's either drive or fly for me.

I left Borgata around 8PM Saturday night, and had a traffic-free, easy ride back to New England.

If I don't stop, and I time it right I can make it from Southern New Hampshire to AC in under 6.5 hours (sometimes, closer to 6 hours).

Quite often, if schedule permits, I just fly NK nonstop BOS-ACY-BOS. (that is my preferred way to get to AC; a 40 minute flight)

About two years ago Harrahs ran a special service using Hampton Jitneys (the same company runs bus trips between NYC and the Hamptons on LI), it was free to Diamond Players, the buses had water and snacks; it would begin in mid-LI and work its way into Manhattan and its last stop was in Herald Sq. and then go non-stop to AC. There were very few riders (perhaps why the dropped the service).
There are plane trips from somewhere in the vicinity of Farmingdale, LI to AC--a 25 minute ride.
For me the disadvantage of each of these is the scheduled departure times.
With the not so great, Greyhound buses, there is a 4 day return window, and there is a departure from some casino on the average of every 40 minutes (day and night).
