This coastal stretch of the mid-Atlantic state of New Jersey, which spawned Bruce Springsteen and Meryl Streep — as well as reality stars Snooki and JWoww — is part-laid-back beach life, part-pop culture trail. You’ll find quaint seaside boardwalks in places such as Red Bank, all-American villages and opportunities to dabble in watersports — as well as roll a few dice in Atlantic City. Whether you’re coming from New York or Philly, or simply digging into a living, working American scene, there are high-end pads to suit every taste. And all these luxury hotels in New Jersey are bookable through Culture Trip.

There’s a killer view from the rooftop at this character-packed design hotel, set in and named for Springsteen heartland Asbury Park. Party-minded Gen-Zers will love the outdoor pool with a fire pit by night and wine on tap from a drinks truck. Plus the rooms are minimal black, white and pine, with dorm-style four- and eight-bed options, also aimed at a younger crowd. The all-American-meets-hipster vibe is completed by a bowling alley and diner in neon-lit, industrial-chic surrounds.

From $287 Per night per room
Close to the boardwalk and lively sea spray of Long Branch, this family-friendly base hosts movie nights on the pier and gives guests access to its sibling hotel’s outdoor pool and beach loungers. Clean white rooms have bold design touches that some may find divisive (cowskin rugs, random foreign flags). However, guaranteed to be popular is the Lil’ Pipeline suite for a generous balcony, delicious sunken bathtub, and fireplace.

There’s style and colour in spades at this interiors-dream hotel, right by the beach in Asbury Park. Olive greens and corals nuzzle up against mustard yellow and dreamily painted ceramics in the light-flooded, glass-walled drinks lounge. Meanwhile, on the open-air wooden deck, breathe in the sea breeze while practicing your yoga, tai-chi and pilates. Or simply lounge by the rooftop pool looking out over the Atlantic and you’ll be served fruity granita (ices) from a cart until cocktail hour kicks in.

This wholesome, Pepto-Bismol-pink guesthouse in Spring Lake feels as homey and snuggly as staying with friends. A block back from the powdery vanilla sands of the beach, it’s the oldest operating B&B in town (now being run by the second generation). Its cosy doubles and twins have cheery floral-patterned bedspreads and soft-glow lamps, and the building is edged by a romantic wraparound verandah. One for history hunters chasing a bit of East Coast tradition.

    There’s a Caribbean feel to this ice-white, balconied building on Cape May, America’s first seaside resort town. Evoking beach-house vibes, the rooms cater to contemporary tastes, while architecture fans will love the wider area and its Victorian facades — it’s one of the largest clusters of preserved 19th-century frame buildings in the States. Big spenders can step into a Ralph Lauren campaign and book the hotel yacht for a day, heading off along the coast in style.
