Stayed during the Cape May Fall Birding Festival, which is NOT in season. Great place with an old style "grand" feel to it. Very clean and comfortable rooms. I opted for a larger room with a view of the ocean so had a nice balcony outside of the room with a side view to the ocean. Fairly centrally located, with... More

My husband and I booked a one night quiet get away at The Grand Hotel in Cape May, NJ. Since it was the 1st cold autumn day, we had no problem getting our last minute accomodations. There were plenty of available rooms because of the time of year, NOT because of the room itself. We picked this hotel because it... More

The rooms are clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful!! I loved the location. It was right across the road from the beach. Beautiful views!! No big crowds to deal with, and the town of Cape May is absolutely beautiful!! I would love to go back, and I would definitely choose this hotel again!!

When we first walked into The Grand Hotel I had a good feeling based on the lovely lobby. It was tastefully decorated to suit the season and was well lit with beautiful furniture. Upon registration we were given a room on the second floor being told that there were few rooms available which seemed strange as there were no cars... More

The indoor pool & hot tub very nice. Staff is very nice. Coffee maker, refrigerator & microwave in the room. Beach is right across the street.... More

The pool was really nice and well kept this was the highlight of our family's trip. The room heat was way to hot and could not be controlled too the point that we had to open the door for air. The hot water was not very hot with not a lot of pressure in the shower. For the off season... More

I go to the Grand Hotel every year in May, but for my 30th birthday this year my mom, close friends and I decided to go to the Girl Gone Wild Weekend this past weekend. I can not believe how much fun we had! For the price the food, DJ and drinks were all amazing. The staff was a blast... More

Once again, The Grand Hotel in Cape May outdid themselves. The hotel is very nice, and always well maintained. This visit was a girls weekend that we attended every November, and WOW did they do a fabulous job. Every employee from the front desk to the servers, maids, and bartenders were so pleasant. It is great to return to a... More

I was here for a conference and the Grand Hotel was our site. It served the conference well and had great views from the upper ballroom. The rooms were adequate a balcony that you could see the ocean to the side. The rooms temps were hard to regulate and the amenities were odd.....in plastic pouches...very difficult to use. The room... More
