We stayed at BPH last weekend, the most recent of many trips in the last 10 years. We have tried the other high-end/boutique hotels, but always return to BPH. We do so for many reasons. First, the front desk staff (especially Chris and Dave) are first-rate. This level of excellence extends to the servers (especially Tim), the bartenders (especially Mary) and the bellmen (especially Andrew). Second, the food we have had at Victoria's (ranging from appetizers to afternooon tea to Thanksgiving dinner) has been conistently high quality, and fairly priced for what you get. No other eatery on the Boardwalk comes close. Third, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. If Victorian room decor isn't for you, rent one of the two-bedroom apartments, which we tried on our latest visit (they have a full kitchen and washer/dryer). Fourth, room service is available! Finally, the hotel is geared toward adults, which allows for a quiet, restful stay. At this point, we have found our home and don't plan to stay anywhere else..
