What Are the Best Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotels?
For almost 100 years, The Historic Cavalier has been overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with its elegant architecture, historical interiors, and beautiful gardens. Over the years, the hotel has hosted a wide range of glamorous celebrities and even 10 U.S. presidents, earning a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. With an on-site bourbon distillery and a world-class spa, what more could you ask for?
Dining is exquisite at both Becca, The Raleigh Room, and The Hunt Room. In fact, I spent my own birthday in style at the Hunt Room in my sleek outfit and “Black Manhattan” in hand. You’ve got to experience this place, and check out their website to learn all about its cool history. If you’re looking for something a little more contemporary, check out the all-new Virginia Beach oceanfront hotel Marriott Resort across the street with world-class dining at Orion’s Roof!
