Ocean Resort Casino, the former Revel resort that’s set to open this summer, will join the Hyatt brand, officials said Monday. Hyatt Hotels Corp. and AC Ocean Walk said in a news release that the property will join the The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, a collection of new hotel properties.

AC Ocean Walk, a group led by Colorado-based investor Bruce Deifik, bought the former Revel Hotel and Casino property from Glenn Straub for $200 million on Jan. 4.

The 710-feet-tall property at 500 Boardwalk is scheduled to open this summer as Ocean Resort Casino. “Hyatt has an incredible 60-plus-year legacy in the industry, and its loyal global customer base will have access to an authentic way to experience all that makes Atlantic City attractive and popular,” Deifik, chairman of AC Ocean Walk, said in a statement. “We are thrilled and proud to be joining The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio as we prepare for the resort’s opening this summer.”
