Why Should I Stay There? Now into its 136th season, The Chalfonte is the oldest continuously-operating hotel in America’s Original Seaside Resort. Although it underwent renovations in 2009, including the addition of more than 30 private baths, two suites and AC, no other place has retained its original charm quite like this grand old lady. The hotel is single-, couple-, group- and family-friendly, and features 70 rooms, many with private baths and others maintaining shared baths down the hall. It’s part of the quirky culture and community of The Chalfonte that provides you accommodations with traditions and value.
Guests come to The Chalfonte because they’re offered more than a place to stay. Unfettered by modern pressures, people return to experience the hotel’s tranquility and charm. Its signature third-floor cupola boasts amazing views, and guests love sitting on rockers along the sweeping veranda, sipping a cocktail served up by the venerable King Edward Bar, or enjoying dinner at the classic Magnolia Room restaurant. And many a bride has tossed her bouquet from the second-floor front porch.
With the draw of the hotel’s extensive calendar of concerts, workshops, events and art exhibits, The Chalfonte is a perfect home away from home.
While there, read up on the hotel’s rich history by getting a copy of the beautiful coffee table book, The Chalfonte, which is on sale in the hotel lobby.
