Just returned from a very pleasurable 3 night stay at Congress Hall. For those not familiar with Cape May, this hotel is a fabulous dinosaur of a building that nobody in their right mind would construct today. I say this in a the most complimentary way possible, as it is unlike the sort of super slick edifices one thinks of... More

The last time I stayed at Congress Hall was back in 2009 (I think). This past June I returned with the same dear friend as it's one of her favorite places. We were struck by some changes. The front desk staff seemed rather snooty and I felt almost intimidated. The Blue Pig outside seating is lovely and the staff were... More

My husband, 3 year old daughter and I stayed at Congress Hall for 3 nights in the beginning of September, and our stay was absolutely Excellent. We would recommend Congress Hall to anybody looking to vacation in Cape May. The room was spotless, spacious and so comfortable, and their entire grounds were equally well maintained and clean. Because we were... More

We stayed at CH for 9 nights after Labor Day.My only complaint about the hotel is the lack of a coffee maker in the room. Coffee was not available in the hotel till 630 am and there is no place to walk to to buy any. The room we had was an ocean view king on the 3rd floor. Very... More

Visited Congress Hall and it's in the perfect location for exploring Cape May. Plus there is on site parking and parking is a premium in Cape May. The room was spotless with crisp linens and a beautiful marble bath. My room had a great view of the ocean. The help was professional and my car was available is minutes after... More

This was a return visit to Congress Hall, so we wondered if it could match last year's excellence. It was indeed magical, with service far superior to most properties. The comp chaises, towels and umbrella on the beach, along with menu service, makes the vacation effortless. The pool is relaxing and with great bar service. The juice bar on the... More

My husband and I both love the Congress Hall. We have a summer house in Cape May and frequent the Brown Room every weekend that we are down. We are big fans of Darin McDonald and have brought all of our friends there to listen to him. There is only one problem.....why is that at the end of summer you... More

We have been coming to Congress Hall for a decade. We rode out the renovation period and were overwhelmed by the improvements. We have seen the ups and downs of the hotel. It's our second home. We love it, have always loved it and will always love it !!!!! It is positioned perfectly for someone who loves the beach and... More

This is probably the best hotel in Cape May from elegance, amenities and comfort viewpoints. It is big and has a pool with food and bar service, beach amenities to include umbrella and chair set up and towels. The rooms are big and the bathrooms over sized for today's hotels. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and there is live... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Congress Hall. Check in/out was a breeze. Personnel were friendly and courteous. The day we treated ourselves to a cabana rental at the beach, we enjoyed complimentary chilled watermelon on sticks. Great touch for a hot day! We met the manager who was professional and genuinely interested in knowing how our stay at Congress... More
