  • Taken back from the ravages of time

    by TripinOnTheEarth on 2018-04-19 06:42 am

    This hotel has really been saved from ruin. The restoration has been done in a way that preserves the history and character of this great building, but has some modern touches.
    The room was nice and comfortable and everything looked new and sparkling clean. The bathroom was awesome! The bed not so much, but maybe the mattresses just need to be broken in :)
    From check-in to departing the experience was almost flawless. Every member of the staff we encountered greeted us and asked how our stay was going and if we needed anything.
    The hotel is located close to everything you might need, but far enough off the beaten path that you we away from all of the hustle and bustle on the main drag.
    The outdoor spaces were nice with seating to enjoy the fire pit or just sun yourself. The housing development is starting to close in around the hotel and I am not sure if the new building across the street is going to block the great view of the ocean - time will tell.
    I would recommend this grand old hotel that is now nice and new!

  • Surprise party

    by Dee Dee C on 2018-04-15 12:27 am

    Friday night we had a surprise party for my Uncle in the Hunt Room. All around a great experience. Wedge all the way was delicious. Fried shrimp dinner was good as well. Filet mignon was cooked perfect. Cosmo martini was the only disappointment.

  • Amazing Family Friendly Stay

    by Ruth M on 2018-04-08 06:03 pm

    We spent one night at The Cavelier during a family road trip from NC to CT. We checked in late on Easter afternoon and I had done mobile check in, so our room was ready for us upon our arrival. The hotel has been recently renovated and reopened just a few weeks prior to our stay. Wow! We've frequented Historic Luxury Hotels in New England and were pleased to find this one in a beach town in VA. From the moment we were greeted by the valet attendant, I knew that this would be an amazing experience. Please note: there is no self parking at this hotel, so plan accordingly. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable. We loved everything about this historic hotel, from the door man, to the antique touches, to the amazing breakfast (the chicken and waffles were amazing); the staff went out of it's way to make our stay special. You must bring a bathing suit and enjoy the indoor pool. I had forgotten our kids floats in the car and the valet went out to get them for us and we were able to relax and enjoy the ambiance. The outdoor fire pit and fireplace are a relaxing place to enjoy the grounds. We look forward to returning during warmer weather to spending longer than one night at this unique historic piece of Virginia Beach. Take family portraits while staying at the Cavalier. I'm grateful that I planned ahead and contracted a professional photographer to meet us at the Cavalier for family pictures. I highly recommend this for families in search of a unique and chic backdrop for portraits.

  • History Renovated with Style (and fun!)

    by happywaterdog on 2018-04-08 11:58 am

    We had our reception at the Cavalier on the Hill many years ago and, with the hotel opening close to our Anniversary Date, gathered family & friends for a trip down memory lane. We had closely followed the renovation (and political discussion in VA Beach) so knew it would be lovely but how would it feel?

    No suspense: wonderful! I give the Cavalier update (more than a renovation...they improved this old gal a lot!) 5 stars and many kudos for keeping the spirit and bones the same while adding many improvements and a bit of whimsey. Whether you are a fan or just a new visitor, you will love this grand dam.

    Some nuts and bolts. Our room with 2 queen beds (very comfy!) had a garden view...take it! You have many opportunities to see the ocean and, honestly, it's a bit too far away (and, right now, too much construction) to make a real difference. Elevators (classical old and just a wee bit slow) are a bit cozy but get you to one of the 7 floors just fine. Check in was easy, doorman John was a delight and everyone had welcoming and helpful smiles. I know they are still working out the kinks but, based on early service, will be a very warm experience.

    Our favorite room was the Raleigh Room (should have a separate billing spot for review, fyi). From soaking up the feel of the hotel to yummy beverages to fireplaces and porch views and...well, this room was like a great big living room with a killer bar. Early morning had coffee and a few nibbles...lunch saw folks waiting for guests to lunch at Becca's (good food, fyi)...afternoons had people parked or coming & going or gathering with friends in front of the bar. Plenty of room with lots of options...I'd visit just to spend time in this room!

    The property has 2 restaurants: Becca's (we ate there and recommend for dinner) and The Hunt Room. We tried getting in to The Hunt Room Saturday evening...right! crowded with a younger flavor ... we enjoyed this place in the old days and seems to have gained a new life. There is also a Bourbon Distillery ... didn't have a chance to sample or tour but will next time.

    Art. This is where the fun and funky come in. Someone had a great sense of humor and managed to be both old and new at the same time. This carries throughout the property but is most evident in The Raleigh Room...fun stuff!

    This is going to be a slightly more elegant stay for the Oceanfront...think polo shirts vs t-shirts. And don't forget your swimsuit! The revamped pool is super cool and has a hot tub, too. A true experience. There is also a spa (good reports from friends) and workout facility (another good report). All in all, a package to unwrap with great joy from the sunken garden to the lovely rooms.

    You are a quick walk to the Boardwalk at the 40th St. entrance and, if green is more your style, a walk back in the old neighborhood will suit just fine. Lots to do but we spent our weekend at the Cavalier on the Hill...a treat full of old memories and now some new ones, too.

  • Surprisingly Amazing Stay!

    by eugene k on 2018-04-03 01:38 pm

    It seems this hotel just went through a massive renovation and just reopened a month ago - and man is it beautiful. My understanding is that it had fallen into disrepair, hence all the negative reviews from the 2014 era and prior.

    We got lucky and found the hotel on a priceline express deal for a fraction of the cost, and it was definitely worth it! We were passing through town and fully expected to drop off our bags and go explore Virginia Beach. But instead we were enamored by The Cavalier and spent our entire time at the hotel. Between the two restaurants (a bit pricey, of course), the bar and the distillery there is plenty to do to keep you occupied. Oh and the pool is one of the most beautiful indoor pools we've ever seen. The room was squeaky clean with - my favorite: a waterfall shower.

    All the details of a good 4-star hotel were there, and room service was great, staff was friendly, people-watching top-notch - there were a ton of people having cocktails/drinks. Overall can't recommend enough, especially when they open the beach-pool access area later this summer!
