Overview

The Claridge Hotel opened in 1930 and was once nicknamed the “Skyscraper by the Sea.”

History buffs will be overwhelmed by the hotel’s rich past. John McShain, who also built the Pentagon and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, was the architect on the project. At the time of the Claridge Hotel's construction, it was the tallest hotel on the boardwalk. It was also the first hotel to have running hot and cold, fresh and salt, water.

The property re-opened in May of 2015 but the building’s charm and glamour still remains. The hotel has 500 guest rooms with 1920s-inspired decor and Jacuzzi tubs. The hotel’s fine dining establishment, the Twenties Restaurant, is the third oldest restaurant in Atlantic City with the original speakeasy bar. Diners can look out over the ocean while sampling the chef's Italian cuisine, steaks and seafood.

Although there is no casino in the hotel, the Claridge Hotel is the performance home for the Atlantic City Ballet, which was founded in 1982 and is considered one of the cultural treasures of New Jersey. The hotel is also home to the Holtzman Gallery at the Claridge, which features original artwork from more than 50 artists, including both local and international talent.

Those interested in spending time at the beach can walk two blocks to the boardwalk. Gamers can walk across the street to Bally’s Atlantic City for table games, casino slots, and twice-daily poker tournaments.

The view of the ocean from room.
Other Comments
DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE $277. The ocean view was nice but I always try to find something positive in any situation. More of a "motel" feeling than a hotel.

I would have to say I enjoyed the ambience and location that most at the The Claridge. The ambience had a vintage, old era feel, which I really love. The location was great, a quick one block walk to the boardwalk and beach, with the Bally's casino next door and a walk-way connecting the 2 hotels.
Other Comments
The Claridge could be an AMAZING hotel if only more attention was paid to details. For example, the ice machine on my floor did not work. The Vue did not have the wine, listed on their menu, that I wanted. And also seemed to be closed during the day, so you can't experience the beautiful views. The Art Gallery had limited lighting, so some of the artwork could barely be seen. If you're going to have the gallery open to the guests, it should at least be lit accordingly for the guests to enjoy it. The Twenties restaurant was the most disappointing. For breakfast, we were never given or offered water to start. Then I asked what juice they had and was told by the waitress "EVERYTHING". I said,"Oh ok, can I have an orange juice?". I was told "We don't have orange juice". Then when I asked again what juices they had, I was told apple and cranberry. Which is far from "EVERYTHING" in my book. I decided to order a tea, which was later ruined by the waitress adding coffee to it. I don't mind if a waitress is trying to freshen up my "coffee" even though I have tea, when a restaurant is extremely busy, but there were only 5 tables and not all being serviced by this waitress. I also tried to call the front desk a few times, but they never answered. Thank goodness I didn't have any serious questions. And the most disruptive was the fire alarm going off, only on our floor for 10 minutes. As we made our way towards the stairs and staff member was running towards the facility room. He informed us that it was just a glitch and no fire, but that we could go back to our rooms. About 20 minutes later, an announcement came thru the system saying the fire was a false alarm. As I was only there for 2 nights, I think there were more disappointments than great experiences. I do believe the hotel could be great, but needs to put more priority into the customers experience.
