Description 

The Shelburne Hotel is one of the very few older hotels remaining in Atlantic City, a nationally significant resort. It is significant in its opulent Georgian Revival character, as well as in the role which it played in the "pre-casino" life of Atlantic City. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
