The Marquis de Lafayette Hotel is centrally located in America's original sea side resort. Wake up each morning to peaceful oceanfront views from your private balcony. Have breakfast in our restaurant to get your day started. The beach and famous Washington Street Mall are only steps away. Cape May is a city full of history, theater, great shopping and dining. Relax in our outdoor pool and hot tub. Don't forget to grab lunch, dinner or cocktails at our Barefoot Bar where you can also enjoy live music. The perfect place to reflect upon a satisfying day.

No. But if you stay in first floor pet friendly suite rooms that are right behind the pool, your dog can stay in the small patio area in front of your room that is enclosed by gate.
