At the time I went online to check out hotel options close to the Stone Pony, The Empress only had 3 reviews. They were really good reviews, clean, trendy, great staff and in addition the hotel did not look like a “former asylum”. Booked it and had an ABSOULETLY AWSOME time with my husband, his two sisters & their husbands. THE ONLY thing I think is IMPORTANT is to let people know UPFRONT is that the hotel caters predominantly to cliental living an alternative lifestyle. Please know that knowing this WOULD NOT have changed our plans in the slightest. BUT, unfortunately we live in a world where not everyone is as accepting of alternative lifestyles and I think that letting people know upfront gives them the option of choosing to stay there or not if it does not work for them. WE felt totally COMFORTABLE & WELCOMED by staff & guests. The food in the restaurant was fabulous and the prices are great. We would stay there again with out hesitation and definitely recommend it to those who are accepting & looking for a REALLY WILD time provided they are traveling WITHOUT children.
