Seaview, A Dolce Hotel


Even if you can't travel far, a little weekend away to have a change of scenery is perfect to recharge.  Located about an hour outside of Philly in Galloway, NJ is The Seaview Hotel! If you don't know where Galloway is, don't worry, I didn't either. Turns out that it's right up the street from Atlantic City, but much quieter! When you enter inside the newly renovated hotel, you're greeted by a stylish lobby decorated with tufted sofas, a marble bar, and a roaring fireplace.  We arrived on a Friday night after work and were ushered into our suite (which was bigger than our apartment haha) with champagne, chocolates and treats for Buddy! 



After we got Buddy settled in, we kicked off our stay at one of the hotel restaurants, Coastal Grille.  Josh and I both ordered the clam chowder along with some items to share. Don't sleep on that soup, it was excellent! The Seaview Salad was amazing. It's filled with scallops, grilled shrimp, avocado, hard-boiled egg, crispy bacon, blue cheese and a lemon vinaigrette.  One thing Coastal Grille is known for is their "Monday Night Special." This includes their famous burger and fries, paired with a shot of White Cap Whiskey from Little Water Distillery and a cold Double IPA from Hidden Sands Beer! This is available every Monday night from 5-10pm. 


Saturday morning we woke up and took Buddy on a long walk around the premises.  The Seaview Hotel is massive and has a golf course on site along with a walking trail. Buddy loved being out of the city and roaming through nature.  After our walk, we returned to our room for breakfast in bed room service! We had fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit juice, champagne, eggs, bacon and chocolate chip pancakes. Buddy had some bacon too and was in heaven! As I mentioned earlier, our room was bigger than our apartment, for real. If you watch the Seaview highlight on my Instagram, I have a room tour you can check out! When you walk in, there was a foyer with a coat closet and a long hallway to the right. That's where there was a wet bar and a powder room.  At both ends of the hallway there were double doors leading into another room.  Inside of there was an enormous living space to hang out in with a wall-mounted flatscreen TV.  It also served as a dining area and had a desk for workspace.  The bedroom was its own vibe with bay windows and a table and chairs set up.  I sipped my morning coffee there looking out to the water in the distance.  Our bedroom had a HUGE bathroom with a walk-in closet and dressing area as well as a marble shower and separate tub. 



After eating breakfast and hanging out with Buddy for a bit, we went to check out the indoor pool.  It was heated and we had the entire place to ourselves!  With the indoor pool being so nice, I want to come back in the summer and use the outdoor pool.  Later on, we drove over to the beach for sunset since the hotel is only about a 10 minute drive to the coast.  It was FREEZING out, but so worth it!  I feel so relaxed and at peace when I'm on the beach or near water, anyone else? 



On the way back to the hotel from the beach we got a fun surprise.  Our friends from New Jersey were watching my Instagram Stories during our stay and thought the hotel looked so cute that they booked a room for themselves! Even the 1 bedroom standard guest rooms were so charming! We all met in the lobby for dinner and drinks to end the night. 


Sunday mornings at The Seaview Hotel is the place to be.  They put on a lavish champagne brunch that was voted among the "100 Best Brunch Spots in America" by OpenTable.  The spread was filled with salads, fruits, seafood, a carving station, an omelette station, along with a waffle station. They also had a dessert section to satisfy your sweet tooth.  You could say we lived like royalty during our stay!  Overall our experience at Seaview Hotel was exceptional. I really can't say enough good things!  Everybody who worked at The Seaview was by far the nicest hotel staff I've ever met and were so welcoming to Buddy.  I would recommend anyone who wants a weekend getaway or is planning a trip to the beach to stay here. I know we will be back with Buddy during the summer to enjoy The Seaview in the warmer months!
