The beach town made famous by Bruce Springsteen’s album bearing its name, Asbury Park was named to Travel + Leisure’s “Best Places to Visit in 2016.” Playing a big hand in the city's new accolade, The Asbury hotel is a trendy new hub that pays homage to the area's vibrant energy.
The red brick façade of the long-abandoned Salvation Army building reopened over Memorial Day weekend as a trendy boutique hotel, the area's first in over half a century. Featuring 10 room types ranging from bunk beds that sleep eight to family suites, the property is a good fit for all travel styles. All accommodations include rainfall showers and custom-made mattresses. Minimalist design is accented with blown-up black-and-white photos of seaside scenes from the city’s heyday and vintage music posters.
Guests are encouraged to rediscover their inner child in the rec room-style lobby, which includes a pool table, pinball machine and board games; spread out on the rooftop lawn for movie nights; and make new friends at the grab-and-go kitchen’s communal tables. The hotel boasts views of the ocean from two rooftop venues and the lobby bar, which offers a regular rotation of live musical performances. A beer garden is located next to the outdoor pool serving street food and craft beer from food trucks.
To revisit the Jersey Shore’s past, guests should visit the nearby landmarks that remain on Asbury Park’s Boardwalk. Visitors can have fortunes told at Madam Marie’s Temple of Knowledge and see a concert at Stone Pony -- one of Springsteen’s favorite spots.
