There is no place like The Virginia Hotel. If you want class, you've found it.

We just came back from a New Years weekend away at the Virginia Hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by a valet who quickly took our car away while another Virginia Hotel employee grabbed our 2 large suitcases and carried them up 3 flights of stairs. We checked in immediately and proceeded to our room on the third floor. It was so beautiful and it even came with a Roman Shower. I later found out my fiancee had us upgraded because he was going to propose on New Years Eve, which he did on a horse and buggie ride (Highly Recommended). Each night we would either order hot chocolate or a glass of wine and a beer, sit by the fire and listen to the piano player. I felt as if we were the only people there because we were so well taken care of. The lobby is so warm and inviting and made us feel like we were sitting in our own living room. I think we took 50 pictures of the hotel alone. The room had a very elegant charm along with a bed that made you feel as if you were sleeping in the clouds. We will definitely be back.

I have very mixed reviews about this hotel. We went for an overnight stay hoping for a relaxing getaway. The hotel lacks charm and and is not big enough to accomodate all the people that come to the restaurant and bar. We stayed at the hotel and we could not find seating to relax with a drink at the piano bar.
The biggest problem was Sunday morning! Our breakfast was delivered to our room an hour later than we requested (8:30AM) despite having called the front desk at 8:15 to tell them we would like breakfast as soon as possible. We had to make another call at 9:20 when our breakfast had still not arrived. We also had to wait 25 min for them to bring our car Sunday at check out as they did not know where it was parked by the valet upon our arrival on saturday. He had to go to a few lots to find it!
For what we payed, I would expect better service, considering they only have 24 rooms and to assure that guests of the hotel are accomodated before accomodating outsiders inot the common lobby area. I recommend that you stay somewhere else!

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Virginia Hotel! It is centrally located: half a block from the beach and among the Victorian cottages. Our delightful room was extremely comfortable, elegant, and quiet. Everything was perfect; from terrycloth robes, plush towels, & cozy down comforter to Bulgari bath accessories. The hotel lobby, veranda, and lounge were elegant and beautiful. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The evening piano entertainment in the sitting rooms and verandas was delightful and relaxing. It was romantic to have cocktails on the veranda and listen to the pleasant music. The restaurant, the Ebbitt Room, is the best in Cape May! Our dinner was delicious!! The ambiance is comfortable and elegant; the staff is friendly and professional. Their "tasting menu" was superb; everything was prepared to perfection! Our wonderful "continental" breakfast, which was brought up to our room, consisted of delicious coffee, English Breakfast tea, twin bowls of sliced fresh fruit, yogurt, bagel, sweet roll, and the best croissants this side of the Atlantic! The Virginia Hotel is a wonderful, elegant retreat and we look forward to many return visits.
