Atlantic City's historic Claridge Hotel is now part of the expanding Radisson brand. Now known as The Claridge - A Radisson Hotel, the property added the new Conference Center at The Claridge this month, bringing the hotel's conference and event space to over 100,000 square feet. At the same time, a new rooftop bar, VÜE, opened atop the 500-room hotel, offering indoor and outdoor seating and superb ocean views.
"We are excited to welcome this iconic and historic hotel to our growing portfolio," says Javier Rosenberg, chief operating officer, Americas, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. "This partnership provides The Claridge access to Radisson's global reservations systems and marketing efforts and furthers the brand's commitment to offering locations in key destinations that cater to both leisure and business guests."
TJM Properties, a Florida-based hospitality and real estate company, purchased The Claridge in 2012, launching a $25 million renovation program that returned the 1930 landmark property to its Boardwalk Empire splendor.
The property does not have a casino, an attractive feature to many meeting groups. It originally opened in 1930, and at 24 stories, was the tallest hotel in America and was known as "The Sky Scraper by the Sea."
