I had the best time with six of my BFF's at the Grand Hotel. This weekend was a Girls weekend (there were over two hundred women) having the time of their life. The dedication and organization of the entire four day weekend was outstanding...not a stone unturned. Kudos to the principals of the Grand Hotel who made this an outstanding,...

Cape May is a famous birding location -- on the migration highway for loads of birds...and for the Audubon's fall festival, most of the activities were hosted at this hotel. It was a great choice--right across the street from the beach and quite a pleasant place to stay. I stayed in the renovated wing on the 2nd floor (room 132!)...

After considerable research and frustration with resorts in the Avalon/Stone Harbor area as well as several in Cape May, we selected the Grand Hotel for our celebration because it satisfied all of our criteria; it was the "total package". The location is ideal, only steps from a beautiful beach; the rooms are spotless, comfortable and well appointed; there is a...

The Grand is a perfect four season resort. With indoor and outdoor pools just across the street from the sounds of the ocean waves breaking. As for dinning, Hathaway's located right at the front lobby is a perfect place for Breakfast, lunch,dinner and late night cocktails.

So, in planning our Labor Day week vacation, I was poking around various places in Cape May. We don't normally take our vacation this late in the year, and a lot of places were either already booked, very pricey or both. The Grand to the rescue! While I had never been, friends of ours highly recommended it, so we went...

This hotel has a restaurant, really nice bar, outdoor pool for summer indoor pool for all weather, parking. Great location. My daughter even got married in the ballroom. Family house in Cape May for 45 years and this is all of my families favorite. We stay when we are many.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel for 1 night, and we were pleasantly surprised with the amenities. Our room was very clean, and it came with a kitchenette. We liked that there were no carpets on the floors, which makes for a clean allergy-free environment. Although we didn't use the indoor pool, it was a rather large pool with adequate...

Booked was a room with 2 Queen size beds. But we got one with only 1 Queen size bed. Room was then changed in a room with 2 rooms with 1 Queen size bed (no. 308). So far so good. When we came back into the room then later in the evening, we noticed that the room was very noisy....

Five stars is not enough!! Everything out our planning and wedding weekend was incredible! Katlyn Mogavaro was so wonderful to work with, even from 3 hours away in Maryland. She sent recommendations of vendors, listened to ideas, and gave advice when we were stuck (never planned a wedding before, myself, but her experience was invaluable). The 2 times we went...
