Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Casino-free atmosphere with Miss America Pageant memorabilia and Atlantic City's only brewery

The Sheraton draws business clientele for its location next to the Atlantic City Convention Center. Families are also drawn by the fact that the hotel is casino-free and offers a heated indoor pool. The lobby showcases the history of the Miss America Pageant, a theme that continues in the Shoe Bar, a great place to relax over evening appetizers and cocktails. The most lively spot is the attached Tun Tavern Brewery; the only place in Atlantic City to make craft beers. The brewery is open late providing a nightlife alternative to gambling in nearby casinos.

 Location

Inland location with easy access to the highway and train; close to outlet shops and casinos

Located across the street from the train station and just off the Atlantic City Expressway, the Sheraton is easy to reach. While the hotel is not located directly on the beach or boardwalk, it is close to "The Walk", a shopping center that offers over 100 outlet stores. Keep walking for 10 minutes down Michigan Avenue to reach the boardwalk, beach, and casino area.

  • 3-minute walk to the New Jersey Transit train station
  • 10-minute walk to the boardwalk and casinos
  • 15-minute walk to Boardwalk Hall
  • 5-minute drive to Borgata Resort, Casino, and Spa
  • 5-minute drive to Farley State Marina
  • 10-minute drive to Absecon Lighthouse
  • 10-minute drive to Brigantine Golf Links
  • 10-minute drive to Lucy the Elephant
  • 25-minute drive to Renault Winery
  • 50-minute drive to Long Beach Island
  • 52-minute drive to Wildwoods by the Sea
  • 57-minute drive to Cape May
  • 65-minute drive to Philadelphia
  • 130-minute drive to New York City

 Rooms

Simple rooms offer flat-screen TVs and views of Atlantic City

Simple rooms at this mid-range Sheraton are decorated in neutral colors with white linens. A large desk and chair caters to the business traveler, but rooms lack mini-fridges or iPod docks. Club Level rooms on the top two floors offer some upgraded amenities like bathrobes and access to the Club Lounge for free continental breakfast, beverages, and afternoon hors d'oeuvres.

 Features

A convenient business center, heated indoor pool, and attached brewery

The Sheraton has a number of convenient amenities, but lacks freebies. Breakfast is available in the Boulevards Cafe with great views of Atlantic City, but isn't included in the nightly rate. There is also a daily fee for both valet parking and self-parking. There is a small business center (with free Internet and printing capabilities), fitness room, and sunny indoor heated pool.

  • Small fitness center
  • Heated indoor pool with great natural light
  • Free Internet and printer in the business center
  • Convenient valet parking
  • 18 meeting rooms and two ballrooms

 Food

Atlantic City’s only brewery and breakfast with a view

The Tun Tavern Brewery is the only place in Atlantic City making craft beers. Open for lunch and dinner, the brewery also has a spacious outdoor patio. For breakfast, guests can choose between a coffee and pastry stand in the lobby or breakfast at Boulevards Cafe on the second floor. Options here include a buffet breakfast or a la carte menu with great views of the Atlantic City skyline. Next to Boulevards Cafe is the Shoe Bar, serving cocktails and appetizers in the evening and displaying an impressive collection of memorabilia from the Miss America Pageants.

 Bottom Line

This casino-free hotel in Atlantic City has 502 rooms and welcomes business travelers, families, and even pets. Though inland, the location is within walking distance of outlet stores, the boardwalk, and casinos. It is next to the convention center and has meeting space galore, but the attached brewery and Miss America Pageant memorabilia balance out the business feel. Rooms are simple, with neutral colors, flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers, and the hotel lacks freebies: There are daily fees for parking, Internet, and breakfast.
