We have stayed hear 3 times now and each time it gets better. The rooms are quality and comfort, The Ebbit Room is superb, can be a bit noisy at times. Bar is a little on the tight side but the bartenders are fast and make great cocktails. We unfortunately had a warm afternoon with rain so we took advantage... More

We stayed in the Jackson Suite of the Red Cottage across the street from the hotel. A nice bedroom with a very comfortable bed, a separate sitting room with table, chairs, fridge, microwave, keurig coffeemaker, and closet with safe. The best part was the balcony which spanned the entire width of the house on the second floor. The hotel was... More

I have mixed feelings as I write this review; however, let me begin by saying that we love the Cape Resort properties and service. My hubby and I visit the Ebbit Room every time we are in Cape May and thoroughly enjoy the superb food there. Helen and Leo are the best! :) We booked a room at the Red... More

We stayed in the Red Cottage across the street, also run by the Virginia. The whole place is filled with Cape May's Victorian beachy charm. As with all of Jackson St. parking is a challenge, but the hotel offers valet. Loved having a cocktail in the elegant lounge, though the restaurant menu wasn't really to our taste or budget. The...

My husband and I stayed at The Virginia the night of our wedding and since then have come back often for dinner, drinks, just stopping in when walking in Cape May too. We love this place. They were so professional and caring even when my wife forgot her wedding gown on the back of the door when we left. Yes... More

My husband and I stayed at The Virginia over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. What a lovely way to spend a quiet, restful holiday! Santa even visited our room while we were in the hotel's restaurant and left a beautiful The Virginia ornament. The bedding was great - very comfortable and upscale. The room was a bit on the small... More

The Virginia is a beautiful Victorian in the heart of the historic district. Our room was small but comfortable. No elevator, which might be difficult for some people. Our room was very small but cute and clean. Free wifi which worked well. Breakfast is pretty good, you fill out a card the night before indicating what you want, and leave... More

I struggled with this review because we had been so disappointed with our stay at the Red Cottage (part of the Virginia Hotel) from the moment we walked in to the cottage. I usually just write an honest review a few days after so I can sort out my thoughts but this time I called and left a message with... More
