My mom booked a honeymoon stay for my husband and I, and we spent three wonderful days here after our wedding. We had a perfect trip! The staff at the Virginia (and other cape properties like congress hall) were wonderful. We had a beautiful room on the 2nd floor with a private veranda. The service was top notch from start...

We are both natives and go to Cape May whenever we can. Last year we stayed at the Congress Hall on a Groupon, this year it was The Virginia, both are beautiful old hotels with excellent service. The Virginia is smaller and more intimate. Our room had a king size bed and a comfortable sofa for sitting, it was immaculate....

My daughter recently had her wedding at the Virginia. I rented the White Cottage for our family to stay in. The majority of our out of town guests stayed at the Virginia. The staff at this hotel are above and beyond helpful. We had a wonderful family celebration there and would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the cape.

Two days was not enough time for this stay. Our room was well appointed and comfortable. The bed was great as we slept well each night. The food was good as well as the service. Definitely have to enjoy a cocktail on the porch. Make sure to visit the Mad Batter next door. Good food and music I would definitely...

A cute victorian! As you drive up to the red front doors, the valet is ready to serve you. Our two rooms, mid-size king were big, comfortable and clean. The amenities were decent, continental breakfast served daily downstairs or optional in-room service. An elevator would have been wonderful since we were up on the top floor. A prime location- walk...

Great location - 2 blocks from shopping/restaurant area and 1 block in the other direction to the beach. Room is well appointed and more than we expected. A very lively weekend evening place to be in the bar/restaurant. Room rate comes with an excellent breakfast that can be enjoyed on the front porch or other areas of your choice.

My husband and I have been to Cape May many times but this is the first staying at the Virginia. It was a very enjoyable experience. The staff was attentive accommodating and very interested in any questions or requests that we had. The Hotel is most comfortable, clean and inviting because it was still cool outside we had the pleasure...

My girlfriend and I stayed here this weekend for two nights. The hotel was lively on both Friday and Saturday nights. The room was on the 3rd floor, very comfortable and quiet, with soft and comfortable bedding. We enjoyed cocktails in the sun porch next to the bar on Saturday evening. Our server Maria was very nice. She helped us...

We stayed at The Virginia Hotel for a night while taking a road trip down the east coast. We were very excited for the room we booked in the Pink Cottage with all the positive reviews we read. Unfortunately, when we arrived, there were complications with the air conditioner. We contacted the front desk who sent someone up right away,...

We made a quick overnight trip to Cape May & I made reservations in the car on the way down! I am so very happy that I picked The Virginia Hotel! It was beautiful & the staff was warm and welcoming! Our room (#309) was beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast was good and I loved that you can order...
