Thank you for taking the time to review The Marquis de Lafayette Hotel.. We genuinely value our guest feed back. I am sorry you were inconvenienced by the noise.

We needed a handicapped-accessible hotel room in Cape May over the holidays and tried out the Marquis' Grand Duchess Suite on the 6th floor. It is expensive, but made for a very nice stay. The suite was very comfortable, clean, up to date, and tastefully decorated, and we even had a partial view down the Atlantic coast from the balcony....

We have been going for a few years and you can see that they are starting to make it nicer in a few ways. Still the best location at the beach. Will be going back again. This was our third stay this year.

We stayed for one night 11/5/2016. The hotel is old and rundown even though the pool area appears to be recently refurbished. Our room was accessed from outside into a "back door". The AC system was running outside the back door at all hours and was really noisy. Angie immediately noticed an unpleasant odor when we entered. Room seemed clean,...

Stayed a week over Columbus Day weekend. The new heated pool with waterfall was sparkling clean, the outdoor jetted spa tub was a treat. Order your gin and tonic from the new Barefoot Bar without leaving the pool area, and sip it on one of the plentiful lounge chairs. Take your time, because with the clear barricade, you have one...
