Want some history with your hotel? Look no further than Atlantic City’s The Claridge Hotel, the so-called Skyscraper by the Sea. One of the grandest getaways of the “Playground of the Gilded Age,” this Mannhattan-esque beauty has been accommodating guests in style since 1930, with its restaurant – now aptly named Twenties – opening even earlier, towards the end of the previous decade. Throughout the property’s 80-plus years on the Shore, it’s welcomed Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly; Al Capone; Marilyn Monroe, as host of a Miss America pageant she was judging here; and 44 United Nations ambassadors, as host of a landmark WWII peace conference that took place on the premises.
Add your name to the list of greats, and see what all the fuss was and is about, as a guest. Attend a performance at the TripAdvisor favorite’s theater, wander through the art gallery, dine on Twenties’ seafood and steaks, and watch football on the rooftop lounge during the season. Don’t forget to get out and explore, as well. Along with playing a major part in A.C. history, The Claridge occupies a prime position in town, and the Bally’s casino, Playground shops and beach are within a five-minute walk, with festival and event venue Brighton Park right out your door.
Hotel accommodations are inspired by traditional styles and offer plenty of luxuries, like Frette linens and a flat-screen TV. For freshening up, a combination tub/shower are in your bathroom.Superior King or Double rooms range from 285-325 square feet. For more space and a view of the Atlantic, opt for the 360- to 367-square-foot Vintage King or Double Oceanfront room. Gatsby Jacuzzi King rooms are even larger, at 465-595 square feet, and include a large Jacuzzi tub.

Set on the sixth floor of the hotel, sea-view Twenties Restaurant serves three meals a day of Italian fare, including a prix fixe. The dining room is named for the decade in which it opened, with highlights in its nearly 100 years of history including visits by JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Grace and Frank Sinatra; menu highlights, on the other hand, run from steaks to fresh seafood. There are also three lounges: The Vüe Rooftop Bar & Lounge; Malcolm’s Lounge, in the lobby; and the Celebrity Lounge, across from the theater.
You won’t be at a loss for things to do and see, as a guest at The Claridge; you’re on the boardwalk, just steps from the Atlantic, and among countless clubs and casinos. Brave one of the rides on the Steel Pier, shop at The Playground or dip your toes in the sand. If you stay in, there’s also on-site entertainment, such as theatrical shows and parties on special occasions, or you can watch football during the season at the rooftop lounge. Holtzman Gallery off the first floor displays works by over 50 artists from around the world, if you’re in the market for a new piece or simply want to take a look.
How to Get There
The only thing that was wrong was the thermostat. Overall the staff was nice and the room was clean. I loved the layout and the hot tub was clean which I am picky and off course wiping down is a must but I was not happy that I couldn’t get cozy and I had someone look at it and was not resolved or accommodated.
Very historical building, Not many of them left around nowadays. all those pictures in the hallways are taking you back in times. Stayed at Cladrigde for a business meeting about 3 days. Staff is very attentive and there when needed. recommending those rooms with ocean view. waking up to a sunrise with ocean view can make your day in atlantic city. make sure to visit vue terrace restaurant on 23rd floor and take a selfie :) Rooms are spacious beds are very comfortable. loved the showers. it seems that it was lately renovated. I definetly recommend this hotel and will stay again when my plans take me to New Jersey again.
i would never stay at this hotel in the winter!!!! horrible. menu changed, pool area closed, room smelled like smoke. staye din the summer it was cool. winter time its like a ghost town. hardly anyone there, service sucks,
Classic hotel with great efforts to stay modern ! I went for a real estate convention and had never stayed here. The architecture and old world charm was definitely there but the front desk made several errors on my bill and the self parking company also overcharged me and has to send me a reimbursement check. The restaurant on 6th floor was closed but the bar The Vue had great food, fabulous views and fantastic bar tenders! Much better than bar food for sure! The pool also was a treat being open till mid night while most places close at 7pm. My room was lovely, spacious and the service was great!
We have an annual gymnastics competition in AC. It's held at the Convention Center. The cost of the hotel there was very pricey. The Claridge was almost half the price, and was very nice. It was clean, had an indoor pool, and was conveniently located on the boardwalk...connected to Bally's, I believe.
