Just go!! JACKSON ST. is the best, and the Virginia hotel takes it up a bunch of notches! Have a drink around the piano, get cozy by the fire, enjoy your fabulous room, not to mention the excellent toiletries! Have dinner in the Ebbit Room if you don't want to leave the hotel (who can blame you!) Delicious and beautifully...

Excellent. We were in the Red Cottage which was great. Our room had a separate sitting room. The Virginia is across the street and has a nice bar/ dining room/ fire place. Friendly and helpful staff. Elegant continental breakfast.

“Yikes!” I said to my sidearm Yvonne over our oatmeal, with the sky wanting to snow and the temperature 31. “It’s Thursday. Our anniversary’s Saturday and I haven’t planned anything. “Bad boy,” Yvonne said. “Right,” I said. “We’ve gotta get out of here, tomorrow, for the weekend.” A Christmas card on the mantle showed friends relaxing in Cape May, N.J....

We stayed as group of 2 couples New Years weekend at the White Cottage penthouse of the Virginia Hotel. We are frequent visitors of the Virginia Hotel Cottages and have stayed in this 2 bedroom apartment several times. This time was very disappointing. The apartment itself is worn and damaged and in need of many repairs. A broken lampshade, damaged...

Dear lmk88, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. First and foremost, please allow me to apologize for the condition of your room at the White Cottage--while our cottage collection sports a more weathered, antique aesthetic than our main hotel, it seems that the condition of the Penthouse during your stay was beyond what one...

We stayed at the Virginia Hotel for one night during the week between Christmas and New Years. We had a double room (see pictures) which was very comfortable and clean. The room had a flat screen TV, a mini bar and nuts/pretzel snacks for a cost. The decor is beachy and refined. The bathroom was updated and well equipped. Our...

Never having been to Cape May, this random selection proved to be the absolutely best choice we could have made. Christmas decorations set the tone and warmly greet you as you enter. The room was very well maintained, with charming decor and colors, and bed and linens were crisp and extremely comfortable. Great staff and breakfast too! Location provided easy...

My husband and I finally made the trip down to Cape May without the kiddies (we live in Philadelphia and we're just now going to Cape May for the first time, can you believe it ?) and our reception can't be described as more than 'lukewarm'. Maybe not the best time of year to visit, but our trip was off...

We rented the Gray Cottage for the second year. The location is wonderful. We have valet park our car at check-in and we walk everywhere.

From the beautiful Christmas Trees and holiday decor, to the amazing sing-a-longs that Paul plays on the piano at the bar, we felt like we stepped into a "Dickens" Christmas card!
