I make reservations for my company for incoming guests to our plant and I have to say, I get more excellent feedback about the Virginia than any other place. The service is above and beyond and they are always going the extra mile! Thank You!!!

We went here for our 23rd Anniversary. I booked the vacant through internet not knowing anything about the area. We choose perfection. The Virginia is a breath taking hotel. Beautiful decor and friendly staff. We were restricted by Covid guidelines but had no issues. The food was phenomenal. The rooms were romantic and perfect. The bedding and decor spot on. Loved the location.

My husband and I booked a last minute get away for Cape May . We always stay at The Virginia, but there were no rooms available , but we were able to book the red cottage. The rooms were very clean and bright. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, And It’s just a few steps across the street from the Virginia. Our room had a small sitting area and there was an additional room with a closet , dresser and coffee station and small refrigerator. The bathroom was recently renovated and looked great . Overall, it was a nice stay and we look forward to our next visit.

We have stayed at Congress Hall in the past, but this was the first time staying at the cottages. We stayed in the pink cottage, in a beautifully appointed King room with an ocean view. The cottages are a row of small houses across the street from the Virginia hotel. You can rent a room, or the entire cottage with the kitchen on the first floor. There are no elevators and to get to your room you climb a narrow winding staircase. The rooms start on the second floor, so if you have accessibility issues this cottage might not be for you They really did a nice job renovating the rooms, while keeping the charm of the house. The bedding is superb. They give you beautiful white robes. The bathroom has a beautiful glass door walk in shower. The toiletries are all from their spa and are so luxurious. The room we had on the second floor had so much light with all the ocean facing windows. It is a short walk to the beach and the mall where many of the shops and restaurants are We visited during covid, and they had extra precautions and even supplied wipes and hand sanitizer in the room Breakfast was brought to your room, or you could have it on the porch of the hotel across the street. You fill out a card and leave it on your door the night before, with what you would like, and what time you would like it. This is where I deducted 1 star. This is where they were lacking. The first day they delivered cold coffee. Unfortunately there is no phone in your room to call anyone. No front desk so to speak. I tried getting through to the hotel but that didn’t work. There is a Nespresso machine in the room without any directions on how to use it so not much luck with that. The next day we noted on the form to please make sure the coffee was hot. Well guess what? They delivered breakfast without any coffee!! Luckily we realized it and told the delivery person. He did apologize and went to get us a pot of coffee. He came back quickly with the coffee but we didnt realize they had also forgotten my yogurt, so we had to run after him again to tell him. He cane back with the yogurt shortly after. Not a good breakfast experience. Here are some observations that would be nice. Instructions on how to use the Nespresso. A phone in the room so you can easily get in touch with someone in case there is a problem These little issues would not deter us from staying here again. We enjoyed our little get away!

My husband and I love the Virginia Hotel in Cape May. I treated my daughter to a night to see the ocean “one last time” before 2021. She had never been to the Virginia Hotel and truly enjoyed her time. The room was clean, the staff was personable, they valeted our car, brought us a continental breakfast to our room, had an umbrella for us to borrow while walking the town. It was truly a magical time. Thank you!
