Historic Victorian Chalfonte Hotel
- 301 Howard Street

Built in 1876 by Colonel Henry Sawyer, the Chalfonte is Cape May's enduring historical site as the oldest continuously operating hotel in the National Historic Landmark city.
Located just three blocks from the beach, the beloved Chalfonte stretches an entire city block, boasting an expansive wrap-around porch lined with rocking chairs from which you can enjoy a nice book or sip a cool cocktail from the famous King Edward Bar. Guests of the hotel are also preview to one of the most fantastic views in the city from our third floor cupola.
The Magnolia Room restaurant features traditional Southern style cooking including Dot and Lucille's famous fried chicken, crab cakes, spoon bread, and corn pudding. Fresh grilled fish and vegetarian options are also offered nightly. Open to the public, a full country breakfast buffet is served daily.
