My wife and I have been going to Cape May for the last twenty-five+ yrs and we stayed at the Chalfonte about twenty years ago. This time was better than last. The weather was perfect and the hotel looked fantastic. We love the porch and enjoyed it every night for cocktails. Our room was fantastic (had AC) but really didn't need it. This hotel attracts a different crowd. If you want amenities and new-it may not be your cup of tea, BUT if you want an exceptional experience and like a hotel with history, tradition, class, charm and character, this IS your place. The staff is attentive, attractive, well spoken and extremely friendly and helpful. We loved Jack, Peter, Kim, Megan, Dylan and all the others. There was a wedding there also and there was some mingling with the wedding party but the hotel accommodated both flawlessly. We STRONGLY recommend the Chalfonte for people in search of the Cape May experience.
