Annual trips to Cape May are a family tradition for my husband and I, and our adult children and their families. We have been staying at Cape May during July 4th week for 6 years (some years twice in one season), and have stayed in at least 4 different hotels. This year we rented rooms at La Mer and were so glad we did.
La Mer is situated on Beach Avenue, away from all the chaos, on a quiet part of the strip. The beach crowd is tamer in this section. Trolley service is available to the Washington Mall - show your room key to go and, on the return, either pay $1 or show the driver a receipt from your purchase at the mall to ride for free. Its an easy walk to the shops and arcades on Beach Avenue and the more densely populated sections of the beach strip and to the restaurants on the pier.
About the hotel...parking under the building, nice pool, always clean throughout, nicely appointed rooms with balconies, and, helpful and professional staff. My ocean-facing room had a sitting area with a king bed, love-seat pullout, 2 television sets, kitchenette with a 5' refrigerator and a microwave; dishes and tableware in ample cabinets. My daughter's room contained 2 queen beds and a partitioned sitting area with a full sofa bed. Her kitchenette had a 2-burner stove - ideal for families traveling with children. Housekeeping - professional, considerate and always rooms always left immaculate!
Items not mentioned on the hotel's website, which I consider essential, are: included full beach service consisting of chairs, umbrellas and towels; towels provided at pool-side; food service at beach and pool which begins at noon.
We were so pleased with our stay at La Mer; we will probably return later this season and definitely next year.
