4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

the virginia hotel is a great old fashion hotel with the charm and elegants of a by gone era
but it needs an elevator too many steps to climb to get to my room from street to ro 42 steps
food was excellent service and staff were helpful and courtesy beautifuly decorated at
christmas time but there was no convient parking

Room Tip: stayas close to ground floor as posible to avoid stairs

Last October I wrote a rather unflattering review because, at that time, the hotel was unwilling to offer a refund or credit for a one night's stay that happened to coincide with Hurricane Sandy. As a result, the Manager contacted me and has rectified the situation to my complete satisfaction. SO while is still have no comment on the hotel itself, I can certainly reverse my negative view of its management. And I will soon be able to relate a first hand exprience. Thanks very much to the management of the Virginia Hotel and TripAdvisor as well!

We wanted to get away after working so many hours and having so much stress from work. We stayed for the very first time at the Viginia Hotel. We have been to their beautiful porch and the great Ebbit Room in the past for dinner and drinks , however, we have never stayed over. It was beautiful , spotless, friendly , warm and just perfect. The porch, hotel, bar, and Ebbit Room is truly unbelievable . Our meal was so delicious . The Management is so helpful! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: King size bed was perfect, spotless

The charm does not stop at the excellent Victorian porches. Inside this hotel is beautifully decorated and maintained, with a staff eager to offer friendly, fast and efficient service. Excellent beds, clean throughout, wonderful breakfast, lounges and porches - inside and out - with fireplaces and comfortable areas, Virginia is really paying attention to the details! A short half-block from the beach. Park at a lot about a block away.

This is a beautiful place and located near everything! We went for a weekend in January and got a great deal. The breakfast was wonderful and a perfect place for couples. I don't think it would be of interest to families as much. Decor was gorgeous and very clean. The only problem was we were awoken by the fire alarm around 6:45 am Saturday morning and had to wait outside with fire department in 30 degree temps. They thought steam from a shower caused it?? These things happen, however, people staying at the same time, said it happened to them when they stayed once before. The waitress two doors down said it happens frequently, that wouldn't be good on a regular basis. All in all, we had a great time with lots to do, even in winter!

We usually go to Cape May for a long weekend once or twice a year.
This was our first stay at The Virginia Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised with a gift from our daughter for an extended Valentine's Day.
Check in was very quick. Valet parking took our car and brought our bags up to the room. We had a nice large comfortable corner room on the 3rd floor. The room had everything we needed. It had a nice king size bed with two comfortable chairs, flat screen TV etc. Bathroom was a decent size with a walk in shower and Jacuzzi bathtub. It was very clean with amenities.

Breakfast is included and we thought it a very nice touch. It was delivered to our room. Plenty of coffee, fresh fruit salad, bread, eggs, soft or hard-boiled, fresh home made granola, yogurt and juices. We enjoyed it and I got spoiled. Also a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries really added to my being spoiled.

Our package included a credit towards dinner at The Ebbit Room. We’ve eaten there before but this time it was excellent. Especially when it’s raining out and no need to leave the hotel. The bar makes great drinks also. In hindsight we would’ve eaten there both nights but had reservations elsewhere.

The staff was very nice and attentive at the Virginia. Vance at the front desk, he’s very nice and helpful.
I actually left a pair of shoes in the room and they called before we were even home and said they shipped them to us. Just those things show that the staff is sincere.

All in all, on our next trip to Cape May we will stay at The Virginia Hotel.
