    Great Service!

    The moment we toured the Grand Hotel of Cape May we knew it was where we wanted to get married! Katlyn is AMAZING. She helped us plan all the details of our wedding, gave us suggestions, and is just so great at what she does. With our wedding falling in the year of the Pandemic, she kept us so calm throughout the whole process and even when indoor dining was cancelled they had a backup plan. If we didn't have her as a wedding planner the entire process would have been so much more stressful. The food at the hotel is great, and the packages they offer come with everything you can imagine and it is really a great deal. We were so happy with how our day turned out and we owe that to Katlyn for helping put on such a great event!

    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.
