Established in 1876, the historic Chalfonte Hotel is recognized as the oldest original hotel in Cape May, characterized by its tradition of warm Southern hospitality.

To celebrate our 145th season in 2021, enjoy climate control with the installation of individualized heating & cooling units in every guest room and throughout the hotel.

The absence of clocks, televisions and telephones in the majority of guest rooms provides a relaxing getaway from the daily grind. Wireless internet service is available.

Though the Chalfonte Hotel does not have an elevator, guest rooms are available on the ground level and we are happy to cater to guests with special needs.
