Its vista listed as one of America’s Most Beautiful Coastal Views by Travel + Leisure, and its shore one of America’s Best Beaches by Condé Nast Traveler and the Top 10 U.S. Beaches by the Travel Channel, Cape May has earned its reputation as the queen of seaside resorts. And even aside from the sea and sand, this old-fashioned Jersey Shore getaway has all the qualities of a great beach town: rich history, stunning architecture (including one of the country’s largest collections of 19th-century framed buildings) and pristine coastline. This year-round community has something for everyone, throughout the seasons. From historic sites and trolley tours to local theater and water activities, plenty of recreation options will keep you busy, whether the sun is shining or the skies are gray.
How to Get There
This was our second “off season” visit and it is perfect for us. This property is part of the Congress Hotel Cape Resorts chain. Almost all the rooms face the ocean with a cute balcony and rocking chairs. The ocean is across the street. The living room hosts a full kitchen and faces the ocean. Linens and amenities include fluffy bathrobes and crisp white linens. The room is sparkling clean. Perfect location for shopping! It has everything you need for a short or long visit.
Wonderful time at the Sandpiper. We stayed in a second floor one-bedroom suite with a balcony overlooking the beach and ocean. Great location close to town attractions, restaurants, shopping, boardwalk and conference center. Great service from the front desk and many amenities through Congress Hall Hotel. Look forward to our next stay at the Sandpiper.
Stayed here from 9/18-21st. My husband,myself and our adult daughter. Originally booked for 2 nights,and decided to add a 3rd at the last minute. Had to upgrade from a 2 br 1 bth to a direct oceanfront 2br , 2 bath. It was great - the extra room and amazing view. The unit was amazing,impeccably clean,and very convenient to restaurants,shops and the beach. It is pricey,but well worth it. I highly recommend this property.
