Just a great hotel in a nice town of Cape May, NJ. Easily the best hotel in the area. Pretty sure it is a Kids-Free hotel. They have the best restaurant in NJ in the hotel, The Ebbitt Room. They also have an incredibly great breakfast place right door in the Mad Batter. Everything else is fantastic including the beach... More

I was very surprised when the gentleman on the phone told me that he would work with me on pricing after I told him of my budget. This is Cape May after all where there's no such thing as a free lunch. What I received was more. The Virginia Hotel is all about the details, from the room to the... More

My wife and I continue to check The Virginia prior to booking with any other hotel in Cape May. We have yet to experience anything but relaxation, EXCELLENT food from their restaurant (The Ebitt Room), and top notch staff. The location is great, the rooms have always been spotless, and very well prepared for us upon arrival. The charm, atmosphere... More

We always loved staying at the Virginia Hotel but noticed the last time service has laxed as follows: We stayed the hotest days in June and our room had little/no air condition. We called the front desk and they sent up a "bell boy" to check it out. He said he can hear the air blowing out of the vent... More

The personnel were very nice and helpful. The room was great and the location is perfect. It's also nice that you have the option to use the pool at the Congress, which is across the street. Cocktail time on the porch was quaint and relaxing. I would definitely be back.

We have stayed at this hotel three times in three years. The first time was amazing--it's a beautiful place, great location, and the rooms are very comfortable. The food in the Ebbitt room is high quality for a beach town. The second visit was thanks to a gift certificate and we were happy to return. Upon arrival, the desk could... More

Dear Jenna, I am sorry to hear about the mix up with your reservations. Sometimes mix ups such as your being under your fiancé' name will happen due to duplicate profiles from a past stay. We use these profiles as a way to track our repeat guests but sometimes the system can have its flaws as was the case with... More

We stayed in the Pink Cottage . We had no electricity in the bathroom the first night. We were informed by the front desk at 9:30 pm that it could not be repaired until morning because maintenance quits at 5:00 pm and the fuse box for our room 1 was in room 2 and it was too late to disturb...

Dear Stushmar, Please accept our apologies for the mishap with the electricity in your bathroom. You are correct, the fuse box was in another guest’s room however fix it was not a matter of being too late but rather that we could not reach the guest for permission to access their room. I realize this provided an inconvenience for you... More

We love the Virginia and have been staying there for long weekend getaways for many, many years. I noticed with this stay (June, 2012) that things are getting a little shabby and worn - the rugs are showing signs of wear, stains on the wallpaper in the room, handle broken on the nightstand, paint chipping and wear on room furniture,...

We had a lovely stay at The Virginia Hotel! The hotel is centrally located in Cape May, a quick walk to the beach or cute shops. Hotel staff and (complimentary) valet service was courteous. In the evening, we stopped by the Ebbitt Room Lounge for dessert and drinks. The drink selection was top shelf, as were the wait staff, and... More

We were in town for a wedding at congress hall, only a block away. We had to bring our 11 month old along, so we stayed in the grey cottage and it was perfect for us. Two bedrooms upstairs, one for us and the baby and one for my mother in law who came with us to watch him while... More
