We spent Christmas weekend there. We have stayed in Cape May several times, usually over Thanksgiving weekend, which, we prefer. But, this is our first time at the Virginia hotel. It didn't disappoint.
What a charming hotel, with lovely spacious rooms. The only drawback are the baths, which need updating. There was little counter space for our toiletrees. One sink. Double sinks would be nice.
We were on the third floor and it was quiet with a very comfortable bed. Each moring we enjoyed continental breakfast brought to our room. It was hardly sparse. Yogurt, fruit, breads, juice and pot of coffee. The fireplace in the main salon area was constantly burning. Very cozy. Also, enjoyed the other sitting areas on either side of the main living area. Free
valet parking is a bonus.
The Ebbit room (within the hotel) is outstanding. We have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. We are foodies and well traveled. There is a reason the restaurant continues to receive numorous accolades year after year. We enjoyed their bar area as well.
The staff were topnotch, as well. We will return, again!

Room Tip: I was suffering from a bad knee and the hotel does not have an elevator because it is a historic inn...

We had a wonderful experience at the Virginia Hotel. The staff was very friendly and professional. the room was very clean. Loved the breakfast area and the cottage. It was our first trip to Cape May but definitely there will be more. I won't even consider to stay in another place. Overall it was a truly wonderful experience.

I usually stay in Starwood chain hotels - Westin or W, because I know what to expect. I was a road warrior and am always nervous about staying in non chain hotels. The Virginia hotel didn't disappoint - the beds are similar to Westin's Heavenly bed and decor is modern like W. We stayed in a queen size room, which was plenty of room. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast pastries were delicious. The Virginia Hotel pictures were an accurate representation of the room. Enjoyed having breakfast on the veranda.

We had a great experience at the Virginia Hotel. Room was perfect, the staff was attentive and friendly and dinner was fabulous. Loved the bar and chatting with other guests and the bartender who made perfect drinks. Our next visit to Cape May will definitely include a stay at the Virginia Hotel.

My family and I stayed at the Pink Cottage to celebrate my mother's 60th Birthday. We had a wonderful time and loved the cottage. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. There were 9 adults and 8 children in our group and we never felt overcrowded!!

This is supposedly one of the best places to stay in Cape May. The bedding was great. The furniture was in bad shape. The shower had three heads, so it made up for almost any other shortcomings. Restaurant good, but totally overpriced.

This classy Victorian hotel is, for me, in the perfect location: Close to the beach without the crowds and in a beautiful Victorian street. The hotel is well kept with odd imperfect touches, such as the room door locks, the seal around the shower rooms etc. The ample breakfast was very good and served promptly. Unfortunately one has to eat it on extremely low tables. The one annoying thing is the overly pushy begging for tips with envelopes on the breakfast tray and in the room. Why is the staff not paid enough?

Room Tip: rooms on the east side may be noisy because of the multiple AC equipment and other fans on the neigh...
