The Asbury Hotel, Asbury Park’s first new hotel in 50 years, is now officially taking reservations and is set to open its doors in May 2016.
Located 90 minutes from New York City, the 110-room boutique hotel was converted from a former Salvation Army building and is a collaboration between designer Anda Andrei, formerly with Ian Schrager Company, and David Bowd of Salt Hotels.
The Asbury hopes to attract guests, locals, and visitors alike with a variety of new venues, including Soundbooth, a casual lobby bar, Salvation, a rooftop bar offering views of the town and ocean and The Baronet, the property's rooftop garden, theater and concert venue. There will also be Asbury Hall & Lawn, a 4,800-square-foot, flexible indoor/outdoor event space ideal for both an intimate social gathering or a company retreat.
Once opened, the hotel will aim to represent “the sense of fun and eclectic spirit that embodies Asbury Park and has made it such an iconic seaside town”. The property will have nearly 30,000 square feet of venue space, open lounges, a pool and beer garden, and 10 different room types. Accomodations will range from bunk rooms that sleep up to eight to private king and queen rooms.
