This was our first stay at the Marquis. Here's what we found -
1. Availability. We decided to go at the last minute & they had a room, which no one else did. They also did not impose a 3 or 4 night minimum like so many other Cape May hotels.
2. Location. One of the best in Cape May. You can easily walk to anywhere & the ocean views are great.
3. Staff. Courteous, friendly & helpful. The best staff I have ever encountered in Cape May.
4. The Pool. Heated, nice pool bar (no blaring music), poolside wait service & a towel guy. You can use their towels at the beach.
5. The Breakfast Buffet. It's included with the room & offers a big hot and cold selection.
6. Pet Friendly Rooms: Available on the first floor. We didn't bring our dogs but it was fun having some around.
7. Nice Victorian decor.
1. Room & bathroom (especially the bathroom) on the smallish side. Room needs more electrical outlets.
2. Parts of the building are quite old & although they have been updated over the years, there are places that would benefit from new sheetrock, carpet and highhat lights. It is not a dump, but it needs freshening. This bothered me at first, but I enjoyed the PROS so much that I would go back.
