Immerse yourself in USS New Jersey’s storied past while staying at our hotel near Battleship New Jersey. Anchored in the waters of the Delaware River in Camden, NJ, the Battleship is only a 5-mile drive from Crowne Plaza Philadelphia-Cherry Hill. Enjoy the comforts of our spacious hotel rooms and thoughtful amenities before you head out to learn more about the fascinating history of this ship!
USS New Jersey served the country during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Lebanese Civil War. After serving a total of 21 active years and receiving a Navy Unit Commendation for its service in the Vietnam War, this Iowa-class battleship was decommissioned in 1991 and eventually became a museum ship in October of 2001. Head from our hotel to Battleship New Jersey to sit in the same chair that Admiral Halsey sat on while commanding the fleet, and lie on the bunks where sailors slept!
