History
The Flanders Hotel began as a post-World War I community development prject. At the end of the war, Ocean City officials decided to subsidize the construction of a luxury hotel, hoping it would encourage tourism, just as the Blenheim Hotel did for Atlantic City at the time. Local business owners were appointed to the Ocean Front Hotel Corporation (OFHC), a committee tasked to vet and plan the project. After careful consideration, the committee hired architect Vivian B. Smith to construct the building. Smith chose tile roofing, steel girders, and concrete to ensure the hotel would be “fireproof,” which would make it far more appealing to guests during that time. These building materials saved the Flanders Hotel from the great fire of 1927, where many other historic buildings burned to the ground. The OFHC named the hotel “The Flanders,” in honor of fallen troops who fought in WWI’s “Battle of Flanders” in 1914. It opened in 1923, and has been known as “The Jewel of the Southern Jersey Shore” ever since.

    Most Perfect Day Ever!!

    My husband and I had our wedding at the Flanders Hotel late September, 2018 and we couldn’t be happier with how our wedding weekend unfolded. We are long time OCNJ vacationers and wanted to get married on the beach. The Flanders provided us with exactly what we were looking for and more!

    We were blown away by the overall experience we had. The Flanders was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience. Karen and the rest of the Flanders staff were nothing but helpful leading up to our wedding and during the course of our wedding weekend. Karen and her staff were extremely professional and provided quality customer service. We received wonderful feedback from family and friends on how amazing each part of our wedding was.

    We had our rehearsal dinner in the beautiful Garden Room and wedding in the gorgeous Crystal and Candlelight Ballrooms. The food was excellent on both nights and our guests gave us nothing but rave reviews on the quality of food. We are so happy we chose the Flanders for our wedding venue! It is the perfect venue for an OCNJ wedding!
