The Empress Hotel

(13 Ratings)
Beachfront hotel with attached nightclub

This isn't a good hotel for people who go to bed early, but if you've come to Asbury Park to party, you're in luck. This is especially true if you plan on dancing at Paradise, the attached poolside nightclub. The Empress, with it's sleek style and location, is particularly popular in the summer.

Pleasantly Surprised

I enjoyed my stay at hotel. Friendly staff, clean room.. I literately could smell clean sheets as I came into the room. It's located near a variety of restaurants. i wish I had stayed the weekend to see what type of crowd shows u on weekend. Otherwise, I would recommend. It has a nice lobby decor. Very South Beach like vibe.
