We stayed at The Virginia Hotel for a night while taking a road trip down the east coast. We were very excited for the room we booked in the Pink Cottage with all the positive reviews we read. Unfortunately, when we arrived, there were complications with the air conditioner. We contacted the front desk who sent someone up right away,...

We had a great several days staying at The Virginian. The staff was great, and we loved our room. We had a corner suite, which was beautiful. We loved the old Victorian style it offered. The room was very spacious, a very comfortable bed and a couch as well, with a cute little bathroom. The bed and breakfast aspect was...

We want to express our sincere appreciation to all the staff members who assisted in creating indelible memories during our 39th anniversary weekend! We stayed at the Virginia hotel on Friday and Saturday nights and then decided to extend our stay, and stayed last night at Congress Hall. It was a weekend where our expectations were exceeded time after time!!!!!!...

We stay at the Virginia Hotel frequently. The service is wonderful. The staff are very professional, friendly and attentive. They have a fantastic bar and restaurant, The Ebbitt Room. I highly recommend the hotel. It's right on Jackson, one of the historic streets in Cape May with a short walk to the beach or the shops.

Right on the Ocean, the Virginia is an authentic 1879 hotel and is kept beautifully. Rooms are spacious and immaculate. Amenities in the room are plentiful. There's an excellent bar and dining room with dinner served Thursday through Sunday and a small plates menu from Monday to Wednesday. Prices are reasonable. Complimentary breakfast brought to your room. Room rates comparable...

We spent Sunday night here on the spring package. Had the optional choc covered strawberries there when we arrived with our champagne. They brought up an ice bucket and two glasses right away. We used our thirty dollar credit at the bar downstairs. Great dirty martini and Manhattan. A bit pricey at 14 per, especially when the price was the...

The Virginia Hotel was a last minute decision for an overnight getaway with my husband. The room rate included a delicious continental breakfast, valet parking and wifi.

We celebrated our 15th anniversary by enjoying a meal in the Ebbit Room located in the Virginian Hotel. We have eaten there often and love the menu and chef's spin on new food ideas. But this was the first time we slept there. The rooms are tiny but quaintly decorated. The bed was to die for. I had the best...

My husband had never been to Cape May and we decided to head down there on the spur of the moment for one night. A quick internet search later we had decided on the Virginia Hotel, not being completely sure what we were getting - especially since we booked for a very inexpensive price, one that seemed too cheap for...
