Rooms & Rates
A colonnaded veranda, heavy beveled-glass windows, black shutters against the palest blue walls. Checking in to the Virginia Hotel in Cape May is like arriving at the genteel summer home of a hospitable wealthy relative. The whole hotel numbers fewer than 25 rooms, all tucked into a landmark mansion from 1879.
With these intimate quarters, staffers can be particularly attentive, whether it's pouring a fresh lemonade on the wraparound patio or helping set up the complimentary umbrella, chair and towel for a day at the beach. Speaking of the beach, it's only half a block away and offers a decidedly more civilized and relaxing atmosphere than the strips of sand found farther up the Jersey Shore.
Rooms are nautical neutral, with tufted linen armchairs and beds wrapped in crisp white Italian linens, mixed with coral lampshades and sea-life prints. The Ebbitt Room restaurant sources ingredients from its own farm to create dishes that "wow from start to finish" (Zagat). Guests can also use the pool and oceanfront lawn at sister property Congress Hall, a block away.
- "The Ebbitt Room [plans] its menu around ingredients available from its 62-acre Beach Plum Farm, where produce, honey, and eggs are harvested, and hogs and lamb are raised for unadulterated meat" -- Out
- "The town house–like setup includes 'beautiful rooms with high ceilings' and 'super comfortable beds' outfitted with Italian and Belgian linens" -- Conde Nast Traveler
