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.
Amenities- Keurig coffeemaker ?- Safe- Refrigerator- Bigelow
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
My experience here was not one the remember for the best they posted pics of tubs in the ad when I was booking my triponly to find after check in that only handicapped and suites come with the tub for the price I payed I didn’t expect that Bally’s was less with a better more convenient experience!!
Your hotel is very attracteive and welcoming but is a turn off because we were able to hear both parties on both sides of us through the adjoining room doors and we could not stay the entire weekend that we had booked.
I recently spent Valentine's Day and my husbands birthday at The Claridge. We will not stay anywhere else on the boardwalk. We travel to AC at least four to six times a year and have always stayed at this hotel.
The detail to this place, the pool and the fact that it connects you to Bally's and Caesars is the best so that on cold days you don't have to walk outside on the boardwalk.
Don't stay anywhere else. This is a hidden gem.
Nothing special. I was in wrong line to check in.no one told me there was a separate line for a wedding party checking in. Took a half hour instead of the 4 minutes it should’ve. Very difficult to find lobby from parking lot. Room was clean but nothing special. Excellent geographic location and price made it worthwhile.
Spent 2 days for Valentine's Day week, stayed 2/13 & 2/14/2019. Overall, a wonderful two days. Love this hotel, relaxing, great location on the boardwalk. We have stayed here several times, and will be back again in March!!
