My organization is in the midst of planning a meeting at the Grand Hotel. It appears to be an excellent establishment to host us and of course sits in a wonderful location. I have been greatly impressed with the valuable assistance provided by Sherrie Hanagan throughout our decision process and as planning has gotten underway. I look forward to continuing to work with her and to a successful meeting next summer.

Last Halloween my over 55 community, Village Grande at Little Mill and Village Grande at English Mill had an overnight stay at the Grand Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey. Close to 80 people attended and everyone had a fantastic time. Much of this was due to the attention of Sherrie Hanagan who helped us plan the dinner, the dj and the breakfast the next morning. Everything went like clockwork. It was so fantastic that we are again going back to the Grand Hotel again but this time it will be on Mischief Night.

Our church has held our Women's retreats at The Grand Hotel for several years. Each time we come, it is clean, comfortable, and the food is delicious! The atmosphere is welcoming, and being directly across from the beach is perfect!! Each year, Sherrie Hanagan goes over and above to make sure every one of our needs is met! She makes having a big event extremely easy and organized. I would highly recommend calling her for your next gathering!

I booked a mid-week special that included breakfasts and one dinner. I figured we would have a limited menu as our dinner was on "Prime rib" night (a personal favorite). But no! We could order anything on the menu and everything was delicious. Jessica our waitress was so attentive and helpful-she guided my husband to the selection he enjoyed. My prime rib was perfectly done and the meal was more than we could eat. The one and only thing we did not like- the elevators are musty smelling! This was a little unnerving as we went to our room for the first time. However, that smell was only in the elevators, our room was perfect with a balcony and an ocean view!

In the year since I last visited, the Grand Hotel has made some grand improvements, specifically with regard to the rooms. We stayed in one of the 2-story townhouses and it had been totally renovated with new floors, furniture, kitchen, decor, etc. Very clean, attractive and spacious.

We also enjoyed the outdoor pool which had plenty of tables and lounge chairs and a tiki bar with drinks for the kids and adults.

I understand the property is now under the management of John Allison who is making substantial and continuous changes. I imagine it's going to get better and better each time we go back.

As for the location, you can't beat it. Right across from the beach and in easy walking distance to restaurants - though you don't need to leave the property for a great meal. LOVE Hemingway's, the restaurant on site. Order the flounder!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly renovated town houses!

I recently hosted an event at The Grand with a group of friends and was very happy with my entire stay! The hotel was clean, all the staff was friendly and the newly renovated townhouse was amazing! Sherrie Hanagan was a huge help in making our event a success! Thanks to the entire staff!

Room Tip: The townhouse suites are awesome!

My husband and I had a beautiful wedding weekend here, and the staff was just amazing the entire time, very catering and made us feel very comfortable. From the wedding planner to the front desk we had no problems- Everyone loved the food that was served as well as the breakfast buffet the next morning!
