The Irish pub hotel has lots of atmosphere. It links the City's past and needs to be supported as a place to visit. I stayed there with my wife and daughter as well as a couple of nephews who came down to see us from Canada. They thought that the whole of Atlantic city was a bit tacky and that the hotel was old fashioned and not to their liking. I disagreed with them and see the hotel as a very important link with an earlier time. The rooms were interesting quirky but there were cool ocean breezes.The salty air and cry of gulls
.It was a bit of a time travel and there was none of the glitz which has in some ways spoiled what was once one of the premiere holiday resorts on the Jersey coast.
I I worked and stayed in Atlantic City over thirty years ago and while I didn't stay in the hotel I was a visitor to the bar below. it is great to see how little that it has changed and is good value for food and as an evening drinking place. A bit of authentic Irish and American live singing would have been great.
I really much preferred the hotel to the soulless clone rooms of the more upmarket hotels. St. James's Place does need a bit of a refurbishment to complement the little jewel of the Hotel and pub which i first knew as Delaney's in 1972.
Call me old fashioned and sentimental. Support this place give it a break it deserves it. Don't let the past be consumed by the present.
