Roaring Twenties hotel with an indoor pool, located steps from the Atlantic City Boardwalk
Hotel at a Glance: The Claridge Hotel
A 1920’s-era hotel that was once nicknamed the “Skyscraper of the Sea,” The Claridge Hotel recently returned to the Atlantic City Boardwalk with a slew of updated amenities. The hotel’s choice location puts guests just minutes from the beach and shopping destinations.
Glitzy history: Opened in 1930, The Claridge Hotel has hosted such celebrities as Marilyn Monroe, Al Capone, and Frank Sinatra. It’s one of the oldest remaining skyscrapers from Atlantic City’s early boom, and channels the Roaring Twenties feel popularized by the TV show Boardwalk Empire.
Where you’ll stay: Recently renovated guest rooms feature WiFi access and Keurig coffeemakers. Book the jetted-tub king room to enjoy the added perks of a private jetted tub.

Atlantic City, New Jersey: Casinos and Carnival Rides Lining Historical Beachside Boardwalk
No trip to Atlantic City is complete without a stroll along its signature boardwalk, which stretches for 6 miles along New Jersey’s eastern coast. Originally built in 1870 to keep sand out of hotel lobbies, the boardwalk grew in popularity as a place where you could drink and gamble during Prohibition without much trouble from the police, as depicted in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. The boardwalk is still popular for its casinos, but it’s family-friendly, too; visitors are just as inclined to sit at the beach or stop at one of the many carnival rides.
On the boardwalk, it’s worth it to check out the Absecon Lighthouse, which is more than 150 years old. It’s possible to climb its 228 steps to the top, which features sweeping views of the city skyline and the sea.

Check in took.very long due to no one being trained in doing Groupon transactions. We enjoyed the view and the short distance to the boardwalk. Room service was nice I got the crab cakes and my fiancé got the burger it wasn’t bad. Not a lot of things where open but the pool was and it was fun. Be mindful it’s not huge so due to social distancing we tried not to be in there when it’s packed.
To be completely honest, it was so ghetto. Nice hotel, nice rooms, great pool but be prepared for everything else to be a mess. Staff was great and all but the place was just a bit much for me and the people i stood with. Vending machines were barely stocked and had to go to 5 different floors to finally get a working vending machine and some drinks.
The hotel was amazing. The two bedroom we had was clean and very nice. The bathroom was very posh with a stand-in shower but it was very large! We visited the hotel pool which was basically a huge party. It was great. Will most definitely stay again.
It took me 3 calls to the front desk to reguest a cot. Three light bulbs in the bathroom kept flickering and finally two went out, I again called the front desk and they said they would send someone up. When we came back to our room there was a lightbulb sitting on the dresser. What a joke. I would not book there again. On groupon it said 72 cancellation notice and when I went to cancel it said 4
