  • Amazing renovation with some work to go

    by USR1 on 2018-07-15 02:53 am

    Worth a visit to see the amazing renovation to this historic property. Indoor pool is beautiful. Fitness room is large. For the price tag and the boasting about being the East Coast's premiere luxury destination, the Cavalier has a ways to go. The front desk staff is friendly but if you are having any issues you definitely want to ask for a supervisor. The management staff are great. It is obvious everyone there takes great pride in the hotel. The food from Becca was disappointing, both for lunch and breakfast. It wasnt bad, just not as good as you would expect froma five star property. The food and drinks at the beach club were great. The hours on the beach club are only about 10-7 so disappointing it is not open to watch either sunrise or sunset. Rooms are spacious and clean. Obvious the management has been paying attention to earlier negative reviews and is working to adjust things. The hotel is definitely working hard to accomodate all guest needs even when at capacity. I was surprised at how much construction is still going on - no noise in the hotel (houses being built in the neighborhood around the hotel but the sound did not carry into the hotel). But next to the beach club a large hotel is being built and there was hammering and sawing constantly. Also the entry to the Beach Club is currently up a temprary ramp while the construction continues. What really surprised me was the limited room service menu and service hours - basically seems limited to when the Becca restaurant is open. At the Ritz or Four Seasons, the kitchen will make you just about anything you want 24/7. Here you are strictly limited to the menu. I may try another stay once all the construction finishes up and the hotel has been open a little longer.

    We don't treat ourselves very often... so when we do, we make it special. The Cavalier was the perfect choice for us. The hotel is magnificent. The room was terrific. The food was fabulous. And our trip was well worth it. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a short getaway. It is certainly not the cheapest option in Virginia Beach, but it is the most valuable. Don't forget about the Cavalier Beach Club... fantastic.

  • Best beach bar/pool in Va Beach

    An amazing & beautiful beach club! The service was perfect...from Trudy, the manager to Hannah, the server. The drinks & food were awesome!!! We didn't want our time there to end!!! When staying at the Cavalier...DON'T miss the pool beach club...just steps from the ocean. We will always stay at the Cavalier when in Va Beach!!!

    The hotel building goes back a almost a hundred years. The renovation is very well done. The whole hotel shows its class from every little detail. The reception, the terrace around the pool, the various restaurants, and the guess rooms, are all finely done, and very beautiful. The service, from valet, to reception, to the pool, are all first rate. Also, don't forget the private beach club. It's a bit of a walk, but it's awesome. Won't disappoint your Virginia Beach trip.

  • What an Amazing place! Roaring Twenties, Bourbon and Ghosts.

    We had an amazing experience at The Cavalier! Here's the breakdown of why this is the place to stay in Virginia Beach.

    The Hotel: This historic landmark has been renovated and looks great both inside and out. It has an old world feel like you've been transported to back to the roaring twenties.

    The Beach Center: Their private beach center was one of the deciding factors for us staying here and it did not disappoint. A very nice new pool, much better than others on VA Beach, with epic views of the ocean. Guaranteed lounge chair seating. The food from the outdoor restaurant was very good. We had the fish and chips and beach burger and walked away satisfied and full.

    The Staff: The staff was all around excellent from Robert, the helpful doorman, to Natalie at the pool deck, to Anthony at check in. All were accommodating and provided a high level of service that you would expect from a luxury hotel.

    Tarnished Truth: If you like Bourbon, this is your refuge for R and R. The distillery on property was really cool. It's my understanding that it is the only hotel distillery in the country. We took a tour and our tour guide had high energy and was extremely knowledgable about their products. Most importantly though...the bourbon was some of the best I've ever had. I had to buy a few bottles on my way out and they weren't cheap, but once you try it, you'll throw down whatever money you have to take some home.

    The Hunt Room: Really cool tavern style bar/restaurant. You'll find this right next to the distillery. It holds a massive old fireplace that Nixon supposedly burned the missing tapes in. Regardless, it had a cool feel like you stepped back into a turn of the century parlor for some after dinner drinks. The bartenders were fun dudes and they made some drink that they smoked. I didn't get a chance to have one, because I was too busy sipping the bourbon, but man it made it smell like a rich fireplace in the whole bar.

    Ghosts: I didn't see any ghosts during my stay, but if you are a paranormal enthusiast you might find one. The hotel has enough history to pull in it's fair share of legends and myths including the mysterious death of Adolph Coors falling from the sixth floor.

    Old Time Celebrities: The Cavalier has had its fair share of celebrities over the last century. It was really neat to see the pictures hanging of their frequent celebrity guests and learn what their stays were like.

    All in all, this has been one of my best hotel experiences I've had in a long time. Everything seems to be running on all cylinders for The Cavalier and I will definitely stay here the next time I come to Virginia Beach. If you are staying in Virginia Beach, you must stay here. If it's not in your price range, consider a visit to the distillery or the Hunt Room, I almost positive you won't regret it.
