Beautiful trip. Asked for early check in. Found room clean. Loved the view of the beach. We will return. No amenities at the hotel were available. Given an upgrade to a top floor suite with a view free wifi free parking and late check out.

This classic hotel on the shore was newly renovated in modern design but kept classic beauty of ballrooms. There is a new bar area but since we did not go in season it was not functioning yet. Coffee service was available but no breakfast. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Guest rooms are spacious, new and modern.

Fantastic staff. Very helpful and attentive. The staff at every level bent over backwards to be helpful. They were friendly and were fast to respond to all questions and requests for information. The room was neat and clean. The porters were the best I have ever experienced.

We booked 2 nights but could only stay for one. The lobby and staff were very friendly, especially the bell man. Other than our view of the ocean, I would not recommend this hotel for a good nights sleep. The area is poor, I was asked for money twice right outside the hotel. As far as the room, it was...

The front desk staff - Lance & Lisa - were so friendly and accommodating. The room was very comfortable and clean. My only complaint is the the room door slams loud, I could hear other neighboring rooms slam their doors too. If this is fixed, it would be perfect!

Great location. Easy walking distance to beach boardwalk and several wonderful restaurants. Bellman Theo Brown was terrific. Helpful snd responsive staff. Decor is a little old but that could add to the charm.

Great retro furniture throughout. Attended a wedding on the site. Lovely setting, in particular the wedding reception room. Lighting in hotel room was a little dim although the bathroom was a bit more updated.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As historic Asbury Park's premier boutique hotel, The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel enjoys a prime location along the New Jersey shoreline just steps from the famed boardwalk. Designed by noted Beaux Arts architect Warren Whitney of New York, the hotel recently underwent a renovation of historic proportions and is poised to experience the renaissance of this nineteenth-century seaside destination. Modern luxuries complement the classic grandeur of this 238-room famous hotel, with a nod to the Victorian architecture and oceanfront glamour of Asbury Park's storied past. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel embodies everything that is the revitalization of the famed Jersey Shore and itself represents the rebirth of this cultural icon. The Berkeley offers a bar and restaurant during the summer season only. Parking is available in our lot at an additional cost. Parking is provided on a first come, first serve basis as it is limited. The Berkeley prides itself on being a pet friendly hotel. Pet friendly rooms are offered on a designated floor at an additional cost. A complimentary coffee service is available daily from 7 AM to 11 AM for all overnight guests. For questions or concerns, please reach out to the email provided on our general information page. ... more   less
