September 18, 2016 Dear Mr. Bashaw, My wife and I have visited The Virginia Hotel three times over the past twelve months: once for dinner, another for an overnight and, most recently, for a two night visit. The fact that we chose The Virginia and continue to choose it is because, it is the best hotel in town. I know... More

We enjoyed exceptional accommodations in the Virginia room. The private balcony was the perfect respite to chat and read over the complementary breakfast delivered to our room. The one evening of rest was not enough! Hope to return again and again. The Virginia Hotel is located in the heart of Cape May-an easy bike ride from the historic lighthouse and... More

The Virginia hotel is one of many hotels owned by the same owner as Congress Hall. I cute and quaint Victorian hotel, it comes complete with a sister cottage, very nice restaurant, complimentary valet parking, and every room is very unique. The staff is very friendly, and like most places in Cape May almost entirely from Eastern Europe or Russia,... More

Sit on the genteel front porch with a cool drink and watch the world go by. Loved being able to walk everywhere and stroll down to the beach where the staff would set up chairs and umbrella while taking our lunch order. Next door has the hugely popular Mad Batter restaurant, open for all meals. Charming block of Victorian architecture... More

Four of us decided last minute to head to Cape May, with my husband reluctantly agreeing. Last time we were there, our accommodations were horrible and he had a bad experience. But The Virginia Hotel made a new believer of my husband! From the moment we all arrived - 2 in motorcycles and 2 in a car, all was easy.... More

My husband and I have stayed at other properties owned by the same group. Each has its own feel. The Virginia is an elegant yet approachable seaside resort B&B hotel. It is adults only. The location is superb - you can walk to just about everything. The lobby and sitting area are decorated in darker tones giving it a sophisticated... More

Fantastic service and splendid hotel. We were impressed and will return for sure. The hotel staff was very attentive. They provide free set up if beach chaise lounges and chairs and umbrellas. No cost for that service. Beautiful beach. Quaint hotel beautifully appointed. Great choice for a long weekend or week long stay.

The rooms are beautiful, spacious and clean. The restaurant, The Ebbitt Room, was exquisite. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We will be back again and again. Unfortunately, trying to get a reservation is the challenge.

This is a beautiful small hotel with a private beach club. Adults only. Luxuriously appointed rooms. We stayed for 3 nights. Upon checking in "free valet" was not around. Took a while to figure that out. The air conditioning in our room only worked during the daytime. I didn't sleep for 2 nights and then they put a window unit... More
