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 exquisite eatery – now aptly named Twenties Restaurant – 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, who attended 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 still is – all about. Attend a performance at the TripAdvisor favorite’s theater, wander through the art gallery, dine on Twenties Restaurant's 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 front door.
