Step back in time to the turn of the century at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk. Seaside charm abounds here with soft colors accented with bright white trim in a lavish resort hotel that sits on Disney’s Boardwalk, right off the water. A banner hangs over the entrance into the main lobby that reads, “Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, Showplace of the Shore.”
The main lobby features a barrel arched white ceiling with square insets, soft minty green walls, floral and pinky peach furnishings, wood flooring, and high rectangular windows that let daylight stream in. At night the lobby glows from crystal chandeliers and sconces on the walls. Decor makes a nod to Coney Island, with miniature amusement park models on display such an ornate spinning carousel and a white wooden roller coaster.
Guest rooms carry on the turn-of-the-century seaside theme with elegance and subtle color. Walls feature a beautiful sunny yellow and white striped wallpaper. The beds feature a posted headboard and there are crisp with white linens, with just a hint of buttery yellow. The floors are carpeted in a watery blue, and the wooden furniture, mirrors, and lamps are elegant with touches of filigree trim. Rooms feature spacious balconies, and most have stunning views of either the waterfront, where friendship boats glide by, Epcot is in the distance, and the Boardwalk stretches out with guests strolling by. Many other rooms offer balconies with views of the Boardwalk Inn Gardens or Leisure pool. Most rooms can accommodate up to 4 guests with rooms, while a few club level rooms can sleep up to 6 guests with 2 Queen Beds and 1 Queen-sized Sleeper Sofa.
