A Step Back in Time
I have visited the Chalfonte at least twice a year since 1990 and so I hasten to respond to those who submitted very bad reviews. For the person who is looking for a luxurious hotel with all the amenities, this isn't it, and frankly I am glad of that, as are many people who have visited the Chalfonte each year for far more years than I have. The Chalfonte Hotel has landmark status at Cape May, NJ, the country's oldest seashore resort. It is a hotel which has been carefully "preserved" rather than restored, so once you step inside the door you are experiencing the hotel very much, I think, as it was in Victorian times. It is kept in shape by loving volunteers who each spring and fall return to do a little painting, a little nailing, or whatever needs to be done. Then, there are the architectural students from the universities who have worked on her over the years to earn college credit. It's a very old seaside resort hotel, folks, and it does what it's meant to do - gather folks together for a very happy step back in time. So, for those of you who actually "get" it, you will love this place. And, by the way, it does have wonderful entertainment, excellent dinners at the Magnolia room, and a great bar.
