Discovering Atlantis—on the Jersey Shore

The other Ocean City (O.C.N.J., that is—about a 3½-hour drive from DC) isn’t known for splurge-worthy accommodations. But when it opened in 2003, Atlantis Inn changed all that. Innkeepers Bob and Kristina Doliszny gutted the 1905, 30-room Victorian and turned it into the poshest digs north of Cape May. Take in the ocean breeze from the 1,600-square-foot mahogany rooftop deck or replenish sun-weary skin with a Bergamot aromatherapy massage. Its ten suites and two apartments, with such names as Bordeaux and Seville, are decorated to reflect European locales. We like the Barcelona, a two-bedroom suite with a Spanish-tile shower and private access to that sprawling rooftop deck.

Atlantis Inn, Ocean City, NJ; 609-399-9871; Rates: $240 to $525.
