    The ONLY place to have a wedding!

    I cannot recommend the Grand Hotel more! From the moment my husband and I walked in to speak with Katlyn in December 2020 as we were venue hunting to July 17, 2022 when we got married everything was perfect! Katlyn and her staff go above and beyond to ensure that your day goes amazing through the quick blur the day can be! The Grand Hotel was our first venue stop and quite frankly should have been our last but we obviously came back! I was hooked on the view, Katlyn’s attention to detail and the fact I didn’t need to ask her one question off of my list as she answered most just getting on the elevator before looking at the ballrooms. When we left I told Brian I think this is it and it was,! If we were to get married again we would be back at the Grand and no other looking needed! Thank you for making our day the best ever!!

    I cannot say enough about Katlyn and the wonderful staff at The Grand! They all made the entire process easy, comfortable and exciting!

    From Day 1 Katlyn stood by my side, held my hand and guided me through the entire process of planning our wedding. She was responsive, usually answering my emails in a matter of minutes. I feel like I’ve gained a friend in Katlyn after this experience. Kelly-Ann is a real sweetheart. She kept me calm as I began my entrance to the ceremony. The wait staff and bartenders were all very attentive, helpful and friendly throughout the reception. This is the place to get married and vacation at for sure along the Jersey Shore!!!

    More beautiful than we expected!

    We can't say enough about The Grand Hotel. It was more beautiful and special than we imagined. The food was excellent, the reception room was perfect, the service was on top of every request, the rooms were comfortable and the ceremony was perfect. The most important detail of our wedding was Katlyn Mogavero, the Grand’s Wedding Planner. Katlyn was available for every question along the way, no request was too much for her. We were supposed to have a beach wedding and at the last minute the rain pushed us inside. Katlyn quickly created a beautiful ceremony space inside and I never missed the beach. Our families loved the event from Friday through Sunday. We would recommend the Grand to anyone looking for a beautiful memorable event in Cape May.

I have had the opportunity to play at this venue and the staff were truly helpful. The views are breath-taking. If you love the ocean, you need to take a look at this facility.

I have photographed a few times at the Grand Hotel Cape May and always thought they did a lovely job creating a wonderful wedding experience for their couples. This past January, they did something that showed just how above and beyond they go to provide excellent service to their couples. We had an all-out blizzard, and there was a wedding party staying at the hotel. They weren't actually getting married there, they were just staying there. The location where the wedding was supposed to take place had to (for very good reasons of safety) cancel on them two days before. You know how the Grand Hotel handled that? They gave this couple a wedding. On almost no notice. This could have been a disaster for the couple, but The Grand came through and did such an amazing job that the couple has nothing but good memories of their wedding day. It definitely could have gone another way. To cap it all off, at the end of the night when it wasn't safe for the vendors to go home, they put us up without charge. I deal with venues all the time, because I shoot about 60 weddings a year. The Grand Hotel is one of the few that seem to genuinely care for not only their clients, but their vendors as well. I highly recommend them for weddings, events, or just a lovely stay on the water.
