Nice room although on the small side. Short walk to the beach where they provide chairs, umbrellas and towels. Nice touch for sure. Steps away from the mall area so can't beat location. Continental breakfast included as well in room if you desire.

Recently returned to The Virginia Hotel in Cape May, NJ for summer visit. This is the 12th year we have stayed there and as in the previous visits, it was a terrific experience. The hotel is charming, restful and very comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach, to shops and to most of the Cape May area. The... More

Beautiful and historic hotel with well appointed rooms that are clean, spacious and quiet and attentive, professional staff. Excellent amenities including inclusive breakfast served in the room or on the porch, complimentary beach service with chairs, towels and umbrellas with available delicious lunch service. Wonderful bar on premises serving great drinks and snacks.

My wife and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for a mid-week birthday trip. This is a really great hotel in a really great location. Cape May itself was outstanding and the Virginia Hotel only added to our experience. We stayed in a "petite" room on the 3rd floor (#305). The room itself was beautiful, just like the... More

Stayed here during the week leading into the Fourth of July weekend. We were booked into room 206 by our daughter who gifted this stay for our 40th wedding anniversary. It included a beach package that featured a tented cabana with lunch served daily. Wow, 206 is the largest room in the hotel, located at the front of the building... More

Kitchen: dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge, pots, dishes,... More

This was our first visit to Cape May, and we were very pleased with the charm of this beach town. The Virginia Hotel was a great place to experience the ambiance and quiet enjoyment. Ideally situated in the middle of the historic Victorian district, we could walk to great restaurants, neat little shops, and of course right down to the... More

Configuration of the red cottage is poor. Beautiful bedroom but faces the street. Extremely noisy all night long! As soon as the last of the bar crowd leaves the Mad Batter, you are awoken by the large trucks dropping off produce and goods for the Virginia Hotel. Very pricy stay and no sleep = awful vacation.
