Fodor's Review

With turndown and room service, a copy of the New York Times delivered to your door each morning, and transportation throughout town on modified golf carts, the Virginia is a full-service hotel on an intimate scale (24 rooms). Owned by the Congress Hotel group, the Virginia makes a little Victoriana—fringed lamp shades and potted palms—look modern with up-to-date color palettes. Rooms have down comforters and terrycloth bathrobes, as well as Bulgari soaps and

lotions. Five nearby cottages, each with a defining style and decor, are also available for weekly rentals. Its Ebbitt Room Restaurant is one of the town's best.

#1 Front Porch Breakfast

We took a family vacation to Cape May with our 19 month old. The beach was sooo close to this inn. Great, great, great location. The street in front is busy. But that was fine with us. The rooms were comfy. The piano player at night was incredible. Loved this place. Loved Cape May! They couldn't believe we had found it all of the way from Illinois.

Don't ever stay here

I had a terrible travel experience at The Virginia. Based on the exterior of this property, and the rates, one would think that this hotel would offer a wonderful travel experience. My experience was just the opposite. The room was nothing special (even though we reserved a "deluxe" room) and the mold in the bathroom was so bad that I sneezed the entire time we were at this hotel. Staying home is more romantic! The only bright side was the dining

room, which was nice.

$240/nite and no bed!

No Victorian style furnishings in my teeny tiny room --just a single bed, table with lamp phone & radio and a broken sofa bed. When I returned from dinner I discovered that my bed for the night was an air mattress on the floor! No parking on-site and very slow valet services.
