The Madison Hotel is located in Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States. It was built in 1929 and added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 20, 1984.[4]

The Madison Hotel is visible to the left of the adjacent Traymore Hotel, c. 1930.

The 14-story building opened as a luxury hotel at the beginning of the Great Depression in the United States. It went through bankruptcy in the 1960s and later became part of Sands Atlantic City.[5][6][7]

In 2004, Sands invested $7 million to renovate and reconfigure the property into 126 suites. In 2006, both the Sands and the Madison Hotel were closed.[7][8]

On May 25, 2013, the Madison Hotel was auctioned with a winning bid of $4 million by Eli Hadad, an owner of hotels in Florida and the Dominican Republic.[7] However, the purchase was not completed and the property was again offered for sale.[9] In November 2013, the hotel was purchased by Ratan Hotel Group for $2.5 million.[10]

On January 25, 2014 it reopened as Baymont Inn & Suites Atlantic City Madison Hotel, managed by the Baymont Inn & Suites chain.[10]
