Hotel of the week
Asbury Park, N.J.
This polished property is helping keep Asbury Park’s rock ’n’ roll heritage alive, said David Shaftel in The New York Times. Bruce Springsteen launched his career a few blocks away at the beachside Stone Pony rock club, and today new musical acts regularly play at the Asbury Hotel’s lobby bar—which has shelves lined with LPs and rock star biographies. Things get more refined on higher levels. The hotel’s 110 rooms are “clean, bright, and contemporary,” and the sixth floor’s outdoor terrace offers yoga classes by day and movie screenings by night. theasburyhotel.com; doubles from $125
