Virginia Beach has a long and distinguished history as a resort town. Its famous oceanfront was begun in the Gilded Age and reached its zenith in the Jazz Age when the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Bette Davis would holiday here. Our choice of romantic hotels in Virginia Beach includes palatial country hotels fit for a president and beachfront hotels just moments from the beach – bookable on Culture Trip.

This palatial hotel opened in 1927 and has the grand bearing and opulence of the Jazz Age. The building’s Renaissance style makes it one of the most romantic hotels in Virginia Beach, a feeling that extends to the rooms, where plush velvet sofas and headboards sit side by side with vibrant modern artworks, offsetting the otherwise traditional style. The indulgent spa – with facials, body wraps and manicures on offer – adds to the relaxation.
