While there was a host of more modern and probably less challenging places to stay in Cape May, this hotel evokes a past glorious era, the destination of wealthy and privileged, and today, its sitting room appointed with Victorian era touches lets one feel part of that. Challenging because there is no elevator, one needs to take the stairs slowly. Modest furnishings in the rooms encourage humility, but they are spotless, the beds finished with whimsical 'towel' animals (mine ha a dog made from one). At night, the sea wind makes eerie sounds in the wooden structure, and the ocean's breaking waves lend a rhythm that induces sleep. Sadly, the restaurant was closed during our visit, but I plan to return to feel that sense of place the hotel offers.
