Once again we returned to the Virginia Hotel. This time to enjoy the early summer and celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary! Dinner at the Ebbitt Room was outstanding and the wait staff excellent. All staff members were professional and even provided a golf cart ride to Peter Sheilds for dinner. Our room overlooked Jackson Street and we truly enjoyed breakfast...

Once again we had a wonderful stay! Ambiance, staff responsiveness and Ebbitt Room Dinner all perfect! We will be back. Arrived at 3pm, walked to Congress Hall, purchased some pastries and enjoyed Happy Hour on porch. Valerie was the perfect hostess and we relaxed and enjoyed the experience.

Stayed at the Red Cottage on Jackson Street. From check-in to check out, everything was nothing less than superb!! From the room to the service to the food. Flawless. Was sad to leave after my stay was over. The breakfast is delivered right to your door!! Highly recommend to anyone planning a trip to Cape May. You won't be disappointed!!

From the moment my husband and I checked in, we knew this would be an uncommon hotel stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating while being totally professional.
