The ambience is luxurious. I loved the lightning and wine. The veal and the salad were fabulous and priced right at $44 dollars. This meal can be shared as the portion was humongous. The wine selection was fantastic, highly recommend this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend trip. The front desk staff was extremely friendly. We would like to thank Chantelle for all of her attention. My bedroom was extremely comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. We dined in the Ebbitt room. The food was delicious and

Thank you so much for the glowing review! I'm so glad to see that you enjoyed your stay and found our staff friendly and helpful--and I will be sure to commend Chantel for a job well done! Thank you as well for your comments regarding the Ebbitt Room. Please stop back and join us again soon--we will be serving 7 nights a week from April through December, so there will be plenty of opportunities to see what Chef Jason has cooking! Lastly--please accept my apologies that the outlets in the room were not more obvious--ample outlet space is a hotel room-must in today's world! On your next visit, please don't hesitate to inquire for assistance in locating available outlets, and look first to your nightstand--all of the lamps on our nightstands have outlets conveniently located right on the base of the lamp for easy access. Thank you again for sharing your feedback--we hope to see you here again soon. Very Best, Jordan Rowan General Manager

Just spent a couple of nights mid-week to get away from our normal day-to-day routine. We knew in advance that Cape May would be dead during this time, so that did not matter to us. Stayed in the Pink Cottage across the street. We took advantage of extremely discounted rates

We came back here for another stay and this time we stayed in the Pink House across the street from the Hotel itself. One of the beauties of staying at the Pink House is that the breakfast gets delivered to your room without having to leave your room. Our room was totally

Hi Elizabeth, The hotel provides beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. We also have really nice beach tents that you can rent daily which include a cooler of beverages. Our beautiful beaches are very sandy and not rocky at all. And... Yes, UBER is here in Cape May. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Hi Jake! The horse drawn carriages are operated by a private company in town, Cape May Carriages. They charge $50 per couple, with an additional fee for more guests beyond that. They operate through the end of December, weather dependent. I hope this is helpful! Best, Jordan Rowan General Manager

Do all rooms have a refrigerator?
Hi Erin! All of our guest rooms do indeed feature a mini-fridge, and we are able to store some (smaller) items in our back of house refrigerators as well, upon request. I hope this helps! Best, Jordan Rowan General Manager

is there a hot tub
No hot tub--sorry! We do have a lovely wood burning fireplace you can curl up by, though, as well as a first-class spa located at our sister property Congress Hall--both should offer great opportunities to relax and unwind during your stay! Hope to see you in Cape May soon! Jordan Rowan General Manager

"I would opt to stay in the main hotel instead of the cottages, though cottage rooms are slightly less expensive."
"Ask for a sun filled queen room, they are the best."
"Our room on the 3rd floor (Rm. 308) provided a a quiet, relaxing atmosphere."
"We are on the 3rd floor and can see the ocean out the bathroom window."
"There are no elevators. If needed, let them know you need a lower floor. They will try to accommodate. Hotel is 3 floors and historic."
