We had our wedding reception at the Grand on Valentines day 2014. The whole experience was amazing. Our Wedding planner, Katlyn had everything under control with both set up and vendors. She was caring throughout the entire planning. The entire staff was courteous and helpful. The Ballroom was beautifully decorated and the Cocktail hour food and staff was outstanding. The... More

My husband had made a reservation for this hotel for the weekend of a military event, and the hotel charges the whole amount of the room (one night) as soon as the reservation is made. When my husband found out he was deployed to provide assistance to an oil spill, the hotel was more than willing to cancel the reservation,... More

Beautiful, beachfront location. Great value. Easy check-in. Excellent restaurant. Go to the buffet if you have the chance. Room had a full size couch/hide-away bed which they made up for us, knowing that we were picking up our son from Coast Guard boot cam graduation.

I recently stayed at The Grand Hotel for a wedding. The room was huge! I enjoyed the balcony with views of the ocean. The pool looked nice, but I didn't have time to test it out. They had The Simpsons arcade game in their arcade! I would recommend this hotel.

In Cape May you either stay at one of their lovely Bed & Breakfasts or you stay at The Grand Hotel. The Grand is beautifully situated right across from the beach. It has about 180 rooms from what I can see and offers specials and packages all the time. There is ample parking, but it is not assigned. As you... More

The room was clean and the housekeeping staff was excellent. The room had a very nice kitchenette. The indoor pool and hot tub were the perfect temperatures and very nice... More

I stayed the weekend of March 7-9 as a conference/group participant. I was so pleasantly surprised by the loveliness of this hotel. I haven't stayed in Cape May before and because it's 'off season', I didn't know what to expect. It's a beautiful,iconic building, warm and welcoming in the lobby,which has incredibly comfortable sofas. Check In was quick and friendly.... More

My family stayed at the Grand during the nicest weekend of the winter! After reading TripAdvisor reviews I knew what to ask for. I wanted a newly renovated room with a balcony and ocean view. I was a little late calling for a room for their "grand splash weekend" so the best room they could offer me was one with... More
