The Virginia Hotel is a must for a romantic getaway in lovely Cape May. A historic Victorian in the heart of the historic district. The restaurant experience there was outstanding. The only suggestion we would offer is that our room needed a new mattress. Ours made for a restless night with morning soreness. The air conditioning was also not on yet as it was late April but we opened a window which helped. Despite that, we would readily go back for another special weekend.
The Virginia Hotel was everything we expected. The rooms were clean and comfortable, had a lot of nearby restaurants and shopping as well as entertainment. The beach is a short, one minute walk south.
Arrived at hotel on very cold afternoon. Checked in with another couple and were told that we could not be near each other, nor on the same floor as there were no rooms. When our friends ceiling/roof leaked during the night, they moved them in a room right next door to us. Restaurant was CLOSED for renovations and we were NOT made aware of this until check in. Could not get any hot water for tea and were given vouchers to walk 3 blocks to another restaurant for breakfast the following morning. Not only that but the hotel couldn't even have a coffee pot in the lobby which doesn't require hot water, but electricity. We had to wait until 8am (2 hours) to get dressed, walk 3 blocks in the slush to find coffee. Came back to hotel and no fire to sit by. This stay was extremely disappointing as we wanted to enjoy the ambiance of the hotel and not have to keep getting dressed in winter coats to go eat dinner, breakfast, and find coffee. It was ridiculous. And to make matters worse, the hotel clerk told us to go next door for coffee, watched us go back upstairs to get our coats, leave the building and the place didn't open for another hour. VERY DISAPPOINTED and will NOT be returning for any future stays.
This hotel goes out of its way to provide little things that make up for its lack of "big hotel amenities", like they can't pay your daily "beach fee" but they provide you with beach chairs, etc. and even set them up for you. And they don't have space for a workout room so they provide you with access at their sister hotel. I loved it that we had the option of having our breakfast brought to the lounge, the front porch, or our room. Our TV was totally messed up and the young man who came did not give up until it was working perfectly. The front desk staff was very helpful with information. Next time we will bring dressier clothing so we will feel comfortable eating in their restaurant which looked very inviting. Here are some minor hints for the hotel: the room was quite large so I wondered why the bed was pushed into the corner so that I had to crawl out over the end. Somehow it would be nice to have some shelf space in the bathroom for personal toiletries, and last, the place was clean and gorgeous, but the windows were really dirty on the outside, and the tables on the patio we overlooked were also dirty. We just kept the shutters closed. It was our first time at Cape May and we just loved it. Looked like a town in a movie as everything was so tidy and pristiene. We attended a free Irish concert in the Convention hall which was a lot of fun. I was so glad I had purchased a sweatshirt earlier. #When we left home it was 90 degrees and when we arrived in Cape May there was brisk wind with a definite chill#. And we loved the tour of the Emlyn Physick estate even though we left it early to catch our ferry, which was a half hour late, so we could have stayed for the whole tour. The guide was excellent. When we got to Lewes, DE, it certainly was a comedown from the gorgeous town of Cape May, although it had its own certain charm. And the people we met there made it quite a nice experience. Nice trip!
Fabulous service - great staff, comfortable setting, perfect get away and worked well for my business trip. Next time I'm bringing my hubbie with me for a romantic trip !
Great service, beautiful rooms, comfortable, classy - must visit!
The Virginia Hotel is an upscale Victorian B&B with a contemporary flair. Our room was very comfortable with an almost "trendy" decor. The bathroom was small, but tiled and modern. There is a full bar and the restaurant is superb....too much food, but excellent. The staff was very freindly and professional. The hotel is near the beach and the shopping area. It was a fantastic place to spend our anniversary. We will be back!
This was our first time staying at the Virginia Hotel. The service and accomodations were excellent. We loved the lounge/bar area. It was warm, inviting and relaxing. The breakfast was more than we anticipated and was delicious.It is within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping.
