Fodor's Review

Enjoying a stellar location in the working harbor section of the Waterfront—and rightfully renowned for its excellent service—the Cape Grace is popular with American celebrities, including the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Decor at this storied hotel reflects the mélange of indigenous and foreign influences that have come to epitomize the Cape: hand-painted fabrics embellished with proteas, antiques like old cane fishing rods and Dutch china, and nautical murals make up the eclectic theme. With an excellent (if small) spa; charming library where you can take afternoon tea, enjoy views of the ships, or cozy up by a fire; and a world-famous whiskey bar boasting more than 500 whiskeys from 14 countries, this graceful establishment knows how to pamper its guests.
