Beautifully decorated and fitting in with the overall feel of Cape May just a couple of hundred yards from the beach. Old fashioned feel with guests drinking late afternoon cocktails on the veranda when we arrived. Room on the first floor via a beautiful staircase that made us think of Gone with the Wind! Spacious room and great bathroom. Pre-ordered...

Another complimentary bottle of wine was ready for us later. After a good night sleep and a great shower in the...

We stayed at the Red Cottage which is one of the cottages that is part of the Virginia Hotel and directly across the street. We absolutely loved it! We stayed in the Holly room, which was bright and more modern than other B&B's we've stayed at. It had a great sitting room attached to the bedroom that we often sat...

As always wonderful, yet every time in stay here I am surprised again by the ambiance, the friendly and helpful staff, the luxurious feel, and I will continue to return! Even though I am here for work and most everyone else is here for a romantic getaway- I still feel comfortable here- like I'm pampering myself

Stayed at the virginia several times. Everything is always wonderful. The staff, the food and drink, the rooms, the experience. The rooms are beautiful, and each time I visited they have been immaculately clean. Great location. An unforgettable getaway.

My husband and I had booked a winter special for Valentine's day weekend, which included champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and a discount for dinner. The weekend was extremely romantic--including breakfast in bed. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The location is perfect--close to the center of Cape May. The fireplace in the lobby was great for drinks before dinner....

Stayed here for one night recently. The room was of a good size and was very clean, and had a lovely charm to it. The hotel is within walking distance of most things in Cape May. The only downside to this hotel in our opinion was the reception staff, who were not very welcoming or friendly.

This hotel was very disappointing in several areas, i.e. the cleanliness of the room; the condition of the room; and the service in the Ebbitt Room. I'm not sure if it was becasue it was the end of the season but it was very surprising experience considering the reputation of the hotel. The Front Desk staff were professional and accommodating...
