Back to Basics: an Iconic Hotel is Reborn
From the Jazz Age through the Roaring 20s, we were a distinguished and quintessential vacation destination for the East Coast’s wealthiest and most famous. In fact, one of our most iconic properties, once considered to be the “jewel” of the Mid-Atlantic, hosted seven U.S. presidents in addition to the likes of Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Adolph Coors and even Al Capone!
Next year, the storied Cavalier Hotel, built in 1927, will be brought to life when it reopens its doors as a distinguished member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, following an extensive $70-million renovation. The Cavalier, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, boasts an expansive 21 acres, situated just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, and has long been a picturesque VB photo-op for those visiting and enchanted by its opulent presence overlooking the heart of the Resort Beach.
Staying true to the meaning behind its name, the renovated Cavalier Hotel will bring back the days of elegant and refined hospitality, impeccable service and glamourous etiquette – a true testament to Virginia Beach’s Old World service and reflecting the multitude of history and stories that live within its walls. In addition to guest rooms and suites, the renovated Cavalier Hotel will house a spa, fine dining, a bourbon distillery, garden, pool and museum.
We’re excited to welcome the Cavalier Hotel back and see history be reborn!
