The Oyster Point Hotel
146 Bodman Place, Red Bank
Number of rooms: 58; Summer price range: $189-$229
Renovated and relaunched in June 2009, the Oyster Point offers seductive views of the Navesink River from guests’ rooms. Oyster Point has the feel of a spacious yacht; indeed, guests may arrive by boat and dock at the adjoining Oyster Point Marina.
Red Bank beckons off the starboard side, with excellent shopping, restaurants, and bars. Beaches are five miles away. Food at Oyster Point includes the Pearl restaurant’s contemporary American cuisine. Guests can enjoy cocktails and light fare in the Pearl Lounge, with its fireplace and contemporary decor, or venture outside to dine on the ship-like Terrace Deck.
The Oyster Point puts on a July 3 outdoor barbecue that sells out every year. A reservations-only brunch is offered at nearby sister property, Molly Pitcher Inn, October through Father’s Day. Special packages include New Year’s Eve, Romance on the River, discount tickets to Red Bank’s Two River Theater, and Jersey Shore Premium Outlets shopping.Click here to leave a comment
