After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most home owners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $100, you get a three-course prix fixe dinner for two plus one night's stay at Hotel Tides (up to a $220 value), located near the Jersey shore in Asbury Park. The hotel's classic style features modern renovations and luxurious updates to the lighting, guest rooms, and art-filled lobby. Elegant design details such as the tin-pressed restaurant ceiling and a lobby adorned with two 4-foot water walls and floating fireplace lend the lodging a refined and welcoming air. Begin a mini-vacation with the seasonal delights of the new American cuisine of the prix fixe dinner, and then settle in for a blissful night between the Anichini sheets.
- Sleek and newly renovated, this boutique hotel is tucked into a residential neighborhood 10 minutes’ walk to the beach. Rooms are appointed in cool modern furnishings, and there’s a full bar downstairs as well as an French fusion-theme restaurant and pool. – Charles Isherwood, New York Times
- We found our room to be spacious, clean, and nicely decorated with lots of natural light. – Shopgirl904, TripAdvisor
