Had an amazing experience at this hotel. My brother and I needed a room for the night and Nathan who works at the front desk went above and beyond for us! He helped finding us a great room at a really great price! He was very friendly and knowledgeable and truly made our stay and memorable one.

This was our fifth year staying at the Grand Hotel, and we come back every year for a reason: excellent location, clean and quiet rooms, and friendly staff define the Grand. The location can't be beat: close enough to walk to the arcade/town (or take the free trolley if you're not up for the walk), but a bit quieter beach... More

Friends booked this dump so only stayed one night not to embarrass them. Couldn't leave fast enough! First thing piled the god awful bed cover and pillows in the corner and turned down the sheets for some semblance of cleanliness. Found hair on bathroom floor, blood on the bathroom blinds, caulking and grout in disrepair, upholstery stained, deck windows filthy,... More

We chose The Grand in Cape May because it offered an ideal location with lots to see and do in the area in September. From our first meeting with the sales and catering staff to the event, our experience was outstanding. The Group Sales Manager, Sherrie Hanagan, provided not only exceptional service in getting back to us with any questions... More

For years we have been vacationing at The Grand Hotel in Cape May with kids and without. Never a surprise, The beach is so close and the pools are great. Nothing beats the poolside bar and food service. The maids are friendly and efficient and the on-site restaurant Hemmingway's is a terrific place to eat if you do not want... More

We absolutely loved Cape May and everything about it except for this hotel. We payed $350.00 per night and expected so much more. We ourselves are business owners and know the value of customer service.Where do I start. Each day housekeeping left one wash cloth for the three of us even after requesting them. We had to hunt them down... More

I had a great time here. It was wonderful waking up the Ocean in your backyard. We had a semi-private balcony that gave us a side view of the ocean. Amazing to see the dolphins while swimming. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful to answer questions but I felt they could have given us more information on the beach... More

We got married on the sun deck of the hotel and did our reception in the penthouse ballroom. All of our family and friends only had wonderful things to say about the venue, hospitality and food, it was all top notch. Katlyn, the wedding coordinator, is fabulous. She is so easy to work with and was always willing to answer... More

On a whim, I took my young adult son and daughter with me to Cape May for a few days. It is a lovely town with fabulous restaurants. We stayed at the Grand Hotel which is directly across from the beach. All of the beaches are public here, so the Grand was as close as we could get to the... More
