I spent a night at the Virginia's Pink House cottage and was really impressed by exceptional service throughout my stay. I drove up to the Virginia Hotel where I checked-in; a valet parked my car, unloaded my bags, and carried them up to the 2nd floor room I had at the Pink House, located a short walk from the Virginia...

We had a lovely short but sweet romantic getaway. We had the shower spa room and it was perfect. We enjoyed cape may brewery and a fantastic dinner at George's place. The continental breakfast in bed hit the spot.

We always get the corner room it's big and has a sitting area. My two daughters stay with me and we love to eat at The Ebbitt room then sit by the fireplace with a glass of wine we also liked to sit on the porch.

My husband and I had a romantic weekend in Cape May and stayed two nights in Room 1 of the Pink Cottage. The property is very well maintained and the room was charming. Extremely comfortable king size bed that I was very sad to leave behind! I hadn't realized how much would be closed in Cape May at this time...

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.

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...
