Stayed for probably the tenth time at the Virginia, and have to say the excellence continues. The Victorian decor is elegant, and, being 3 days before Christmas, was extraordinary. The main thing that separates this hotel from so many others is the professionalism of the staff, from the desk, to the maitre'd to housekeeping and valet parking. They are obviously...

The rooms are in the old style and the attached restaurant is exquisite. Within walking distance to the beach, we did stay in December and I would not consider staying here in the summer due to the fact that I like to be closer to the beach and usually rent near the beach. This place was perfect for seeing the...

For two years we have enjoyed our stay at the Virginia Hotel Christmas eve night into Christmas day. It was a very special experience! Service is wonderful - even though it is the holiday and we feel guilty about "making" people work, we felt so welcomed! The queen bed room we have is comfy, spacious, and the shower is magnificent...

I went here for a bachelorette party and it was pretty classy. I was in a double bed room. The beds were clean and there was a lot of space. I shared with one other person and it was A LOT of space. You can definitely have four ladies in a room. We also went to the Ebbitt room for...

We booked the Virginia Hotel as we were meeting good friends from Lewes who ferried over for dinner and an overnight stay. From the cozy lobby with fireplace, the warm reception from Julia at check-in, the comfortable rooms, a nice bar off the lobby and breakfast served in the rooms, we found it to be a perfect rendition of what...

I stayed at the Virginia Hotel and the place was very friendly and clean. The people were very so hospitable. They would do anything for you to make your stay more comfortable.

We stayed here 2 nights because the Doctors Inn in Cape May Court House, had a fire just before our scheduled arrival. So frantically we stopped into a McD to get on their wifi and find a place. The price is $85 more than Doctors. our room is small with few pleasures, this is NOT a B & B but...

Like other reviewers, our first impressions were wonderful. We arrived for a two night stay and were greeted warmly by the front desk clerk, the valet who brought our bags to our room and then whisked away our car and by the crackling fire in the cozy lounge. Our room, 305 was small but well decorated. It was beautiful and...

First impressions are lasting impressions but can also be harbingers of things to come. The smiling, gracious desk attendant and valet set the tone for what was a weekend of elegant service and attention to detail. Our room was beautifully decorated and furnished with fine linens, a mini-bar (fairly priced), flat screen TV, individual climate control and a spa shower...
