Seaside Sophistication since 1879

The Virginia provides a truly intimate environment that perfectly balances the modern with the timeless. A haven of relaxed elegance and thoughtful design, it's a contemporary interpretation of seaside sophistication that never fails to delight. You'll love waking up each morning to made-to-order continental breakfast, sipping coffee on the front porch, and strolling to the beach just down Jackson Street.
Originally named 'The Ebbitt House' after its first owners, Alfred and Ellen Ebbitt, the hotel was renamed 'The Virginia Hotel' during its heyday in the early 1890s when it was a popular destination for visitors from Washington, D.C and Philadelphia. It was frequently mentioned in the society pages of The Philadelphia Inquirer, since many of the city’s fashionable set would decamp to the shore during the torrid summer season.
Today, the Virginia stands as a historic icon of hospitality, proudly offering seaside welcome to discerning travelers near and far. The Virginia is a recipient of numerous awards and accolades for its impeccable service and standards from notable publications like Conde Nast Traveler's Reader’s Choice Awards, the Trip Advisor Award of Excellence, and the Conde Nast Gold List.
