We love everything about The Virginia Hotel. It is our home away from home. We are so happy to arrive and sad to leave. The front desk agents are warm, receptive, and willing to assist whenever needed. We visit several times during the year. It is one classy and enjoyable place!

Each morning we had the option to have our breakfast brought to our room and we took advantage of the offer. Lovely presentation. We even had a charcuterie board brought prior to venturing out for the evening. The room was spacious with excellent views. Everyone was kind and helpful. Great service.

We booked a one night package the week before Xmas 2017 for my wife's birthday. We had never stayed at the Virginia before but we love Cape May. The staff, from valet to desk to manager couldn't be nicer. Super accommodating and professional. Our room was cute, with a good mattress and nice furnishings. Not too frilly. The bathroom could use more available shelf space but that is normal for a Victorian inn or B&B. We had a fantastic dinner at the Ebbitt Room as part of our package. The menu is varied and just unusual enough. Everything is fresh and well prepared. The entire experience from cocktails to dinner to an after dinner tea or liqueur at the fireplace is upscale and relaxed. Even if you don't stay, go for dinner. Our breakfast was available either in our room or downstairs in the living room lounge. We opted to eat downstairs by the fireplace and had very nice silver tray of fresh fruit, muffins, granola and fresh coffee. The manager came over at the that point & wished us Merry Christmas and God bless. We will be back again!

Loved our stay here. Hotel is clean and centrally located. Short walk to many restaurants, the beach, shopping. Breakfast was good. Hotel bit noisy as there was a wedding going on but all in all nice place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great place to stay in Cape May.

Try try and try again. We've stayed almost everywhere in Cape May. The Virginia is a tad pricey, but consistently good. Great location, beautiful rooms. Sometimes a bit lax on the details, but not deal-breakingly so.

We came to Cape May at Christmas and enjoyed this lovely hotel and restaurant. Since the main hotel was full we stayed in The Pink House across the street. Valet will park your car once checked in and unloaded at no charge. The staff is exceptional - friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Our room was upstairs - no elevator - & overlooked the street scene but was quiet and comfortable with a nice seating area and spotless bath. There is a main floor common area with couches, game tables, games, TV and a huge Christmas tree that would be perfect for family time when not out enjoying the area beaches, shops and restaurants. You can walk to all. The restaurant menu is more suited for adults and the bar is very popular with a talented bar keep who can make just about anything for you. The Virginia is a lovely hotel & I recommend it for convenience to amenities, comfort and exceptional staff.

I recently stayed for 3 days between Christmas & New Year's. I had previously stayed at Congress Hall and Baron's Cove in San Harbor, but this was my first time at the Virginia and it did not disappoint. It was the perfect location for a cozy holiday retreat. The Ebbitt Room is my favorite restaurant in Cape May and I made sure to have dinner there 2 out of 3 nights. The staff is lovely and very helpful and the decor is wonderful, from the guest rooms to the bar in the restaurant. Highly recommend!

The restaurant downstairs is pricey but yummy. I was here for business and the conference room was very tight. Better for romance v. work. Small yet elegant rooms. Great location. Sister hotel to Congress Hall so your car will be parked here for each access. Quick walk to Washington Sq and beach. Old but lovely.

Stayed for two weeknights in early December to celebrate my birthday and took advantage of their Winter Warm Up package that included a $40 per night dining credit, 15% off one spa service and 15%off one spa product. The Virginia is part of the Cape Resorts that includes numerous properties including the Congress Hotel where the spa and outdoor pool and additional dining options are located. Guests at any Cape Resort property can use facilities in other properties, which is nice. (A few years ago, we stayed in one of the cottages during the summer, so having this flexibility was appreciated). Our room on the third floor was spacious and clean. We chose the room with the spa shower (three shower heads) which sounded nice but not sure I would book this room again for that feature. Note there are no elevators but staff will gladly carry luggage up and downstairs. Complimentary off site valet parking is a nice bonus as was the complimentary continental breakfast. You have the option to eat in the restaurant or have it delivered to your room, which we did. Not a lot of breakfast options but the food was good. You can upgrade your breakfast to include alcoholic drinks for an extra charge (we didn't). There were also nice plush robes in the closet and we kept saying we were going to wear them eating breakfast but we never remembered to do so! There is a dining room on the bottom floor that is kind of pricey; we didn't eat there but did enjoy cocktails there one night. I know there is an early dinner special but as a vegetarian, the options for me were limited. The spa at Congress Hall was nice and offered the usual compliment of services you would expect to see. I couldn't decide so I chose a sampler package. This was listed for a single price so I was a bit surprised (and slightly dismayed) when the discount was offered on one of the services in the package, not the entire package. This was also awkward as I based my gratuity on the package price, splitting it between the two providers evenly. Had I known about the individual pricing, I would have apportioned the gratuity differently. There is a fitness room that is adequately outfitted in Congress Hall. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. All of the properties were very festively decorated for Christmas.

We stayed at the Pink Cottage for an overnight visit. It is one of a few locations associated with the Virginia Hotel and is diagonally across the street. I mention this because you check in at the Virginia Hotel and then take a short stroll across the street. All the bells and whistles are at the Virginia. The Pink Cottage is a small place with a few rooms, and the shared covered patio is in back with a pretty unappealing view. I would have preferred staying at the Virginia, but that was full already. The room was very comfortable - Pillows and the bed were great for the night's rest and the room was clean. Breakfast can be eaten at the Virginia or delivered to your room. The options for breakfast were pretty small considering the cost of the room. We had a bagel, a hard boiled egg and a small glass of apple juice. I have had a better selection from a roadside motel at 1/3 the cost. They need to do a better job there. All in all, great location - right across from the beach, down the block from dining and shopping and the weather was perfect.
