This spacious room is just a bit tired with obvious water leak marks on the ceiling in a few places, stained upholstery and stained carpet. The bath has updated tile work, but the shower grout is not clean in the corners on the floor. Being there in January, we notice the cold seeping in through the original windows, none of... More

The Virginia Hotel Hotel in Cape May was a real delight and lovely surprise. The decorations and ambiance for Christmas were the best we saw in all the hotels we visited during our stay. We came her to celebrate a birthday and extend the holiday and were very pleased. The hotel is immaculate and very well designed for such a... More

We stayed at the gray cottage which is part of the Virginia Hotel. The place was simply beautiful. Very clean and very roomy. The view from the second floor deck was the perfect way to start every morning. Kitchen is well equipped with every gadget needed. The only negative was the storage for clothing in the bedrooms. I wish each... More

The suite is two bedrooms under the eaves with great down comforters and bedding with a mix of new and antique furniture. There is a large shower and a nice deck with a small view of the ocean and...

Cozy, clean, charming, historic and very special. Lovely rooms, great staff, beautiful public spaces. Don't miss the Ebett Room and the piano bar. Great cocktails and inviting upscale surroundings. One of Cape May's gems!! BTW...exceptional value on the lodging cost....worth a visit at twice the price!

Beautiful hotel! Clean and comfortable. Luxurious bed linens, nice bathroom amenities. The lobby was a great place to relax with friends as was the bar and lounge. A plus was the complimentary continental breakfast that you can have delivered to your room, or lounge or porch. Everything came fresh and hot and was delicious. Staff was courteous and friendly and... More

My boyfriend and I needed a romantic getaway and stayed at The Virginia Hotel. We loved this place! We came just in time to see the hotel and town get ready for the holidays. Everyone was very friendly and it was just such a cute place to spend the weekend. My one and only complaint was that it got a... More

We stayed at The Red Cottage Inn, through the Virginia Hotel Co. and we could not have asked for a better time in Cape May. It was a truly magical experience. Perfect time of year to visit - quiet and we were able to relax and get psyched for the Christmas season. The customer service at the hotel was 5... More
