Dennis Hotel, Michigan Avenue & Boardwalk, Atlantic City, Atlantic County, NJ



Significance: Important as an architectural monument of a gracious and opulent era, and as a major element in the principal surviving portion of Atlantic City's Boardwalk front. Architecturally, the Dennis was less innovative than the neighboring Blenheim, in structure as well as form and decoration. However, its exterior, particularly in its relationship to the Boardwalk and to Michigan Avenue, is especially important, recalling as it does the patterns generated a century ago. In addition, various rooms, notably the public spaces, possess a charm that reiterates the themes of the exterior, and offers a significant aesthetic and environmental expression for the first half of the 20th century.
