Atlantic City, located in New Jersey (NJ) is a melting pot of hotels, casinos and restaurants. It is about 3 hours drive from NYC, making it the perfect weekend getaway even though thousands of people across the world visit Atlantic City to explore all that the city has to offer.

Choosing a hotel from Atlantic City’s huge pool can be a daunting task. Let face it, you want a nice hotel with great amenities,  but do not want to break the bank. 

The Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel is a great find. One of the best things, apart from it’s reasonably price rates, is it’s location. 

Location Is Key

The hotel is on the outskirts of central Atlantic City where the major congregate of hotels like Ballys and Caesars are located. However, the hotel is within very close walking distance to the boardwalk, all the casinos, restaurants and Tanger Outlet.

This location gives you a great deal of privacy and a peaceful stay. Moreover, there are no casinos, making it ideal for your family.

The hotel and the rooms are very spacious, clean and some has clear view of the city and ocean.

The Wing Craft Kitchen & Beer Bar is about one block away from The Sheraton Hotel or  2-3 minutes walk. 

The restaurant’s ambiance has a very rustic feel as its wildly unique flavored burgers, wings and beer selections.

It was a pleasurable and relaxing experience. The staff were provided very good customer service.

This Applebee’s Restaurant are a few steps from the hotel. This fast food chain serves a wide selection of menu items and drinks. The prices will not break your pocket.

  1. I’ve only ever heard of Atlantic City in films and TV shows, so I had no idea it was in New Jersey. Is Atlantic City the other well known place for gambling location in the US? Have you done any gambling there?
