Hotels in New Jersey
New Jersey is really a democratic travel destination—it has something for everyone, including all different types of accommodation. From quaint, historic waterfront properties to sleek, modern, skyscraper suites, hotels in New Jersey are richly varied.
The Historic Hotel Macomber in Cape May is one of hundreds of New Jersey hotels on the water. It gives you relaxation, an ocean view, and a famous restaurant, The Union Park Dining Hall. The hotel is designed in the Victorian style with rambling porches and a solarium peering onto Beach Avenue. The Waterfront High Rise Deluxe is situated in Jersey City and is one of the best hotels in New Jersey. Gaze out at city skylines from your modern room, and then put on your walking shoes and go explore the shops and cafes of Jersey City.
The New Resorts Casino Hotel is located on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. This resort combines gambling, live music, dances, and the beach for a well-rounded New Jersey hotel. The Colonial Inn, in the historic village of Smithville, is known for its 3 p.m. offering of hot chocolate and cookies, among other things. It faces the lake, and during the holiday season, the lights and decorations can be seen from the large windows. Sit by the fire and simply relax.
