It contained 400 rooms, and was soon expanded with a second tower adding another 400 rooms in 1921.On June 18, 1922, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his friend Harry Houdini met at the hotel, for Doyle's spiritualist wife Anna to contact Houdini's late mother in a seance. Although Anna transcribed pages of notes allegedly from her, Houdini later revealed that his mother did not speak English, claimed Doyle's wife was a fraud, and ended his friendship with Conan Doyle.In 1929, the Ambassador was the site of the infamous Atlantic City Conference, in which a number of organized crime bosses, including Al Capone, Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano, negotiated their territorial rights after a wave of violence.

Where to stay in Atlantic City

If you’re in the mood to splurge on vacation, stay close to the gambling action at one of Atlantic City’s luxurious hotel-casinos. Many of these towering buildings have their own restaurants, nightclubs, and spas, as well as stunning ocean views. Motels farther away from the boardwalk are much cheaper. Inns and bed and breakfasts also tend to be farther from the bustle, but offer a charm and homey feel you can’t find in the area’s mega-hotels.
