“The Jewel of the Southern Jersey Shore.”
The Flanders Hotel, New Jersey
This Impeccable Hotel will be sure to impress you. The owner is a knowledgeable, extremely courteous, thoughtful leader of the establishment who takes great pride in this business.
The staff supplied one of the better experiences in our travel history. The Hotel was decorated for the Holidays at the time of our visit. We fell in love the second we went to the second floor. The pristine, upscale atmosphere made us want to stop and stay in the large gathering area of the level. We did for a little while before heading off the deck to check out the overlook of the boardwalk and the hotel pool.
We suggest staying at this Hotel even in its offseason. If you are coming to photograph the Fishing Pier, you can do this any time the weather permits. We won’t be on the Jersey Shore when it is zero degrees, and the wind whips around at 30 m.p.h. But a nice 40-something-degree day will do. The town is quiet in the winter months. There were no crowds or traffic or lines to deal with. If you saw the images above in the slideshow, you will agree; tolerating the cold was well worth it.
The Hotel was built in 1923, costing 1.5 million dollars. It was the largest construction project in the town at that point. Upon completion of a ceremony in the elegant grand ballrooms was enjoyed by many guests. Fine dining, dancing, and speeches were the focus of the night. If we could travel in time someday, this would be one of our stops, an actual historical moment.
