Type of room rented: Ocean View Queen Price Paid: $349 (single night on weekend so premium may have applied) Overall Average Score: 7.7/10 (Slightly Exceeded Expectations) Location - 10/10 (Met Expectations) This is an odd one, because we knew exactly why we wanted to stay there and it was location, so even though it has a great location, only gets...

We've stayed at Congress Hall in every season of the year and it never disappoints. Choose a room with a beach view - at bit more expensive but worth it. Although the rooms are simply furnished, the linens are luxurious and the bathrooms are large. The restaurant in the hotel, The Blue Pig, is very good - farm-to-table ingredients and... More

Congress hall has several wonderful amenities. First, the Brown room with the tremendous piano player and the terrific coffee shop down the hall. I also enjoyed sitting outside in a rocking chair enjoying the sunshine! I would not suggest the Blue Pig Tavern for dinner, I was not impressed. I would suggest it for breakfast/brunch it was wonderful. We really... More

Very convenient spot to all local restaurants. Room had 2 queen beds and was very comfortable. Bathroom and shower was a good size. Bar in bottom floor of hotel was very nice and a convenient spot to visit before heading out for the evening. The outdoor grassy area facing the beach was very nice with Adirondack chairs and looking right... More

We specifically went down to cape may because of this hotel. We booked our reservation on groupon for a king room with an ocean view. I received an email confirmation and they charged my credit card. When my husband and I got to the hotel, they told us that they didn't have a reservation for us and they would put... More

We have been coming to Congress Hall for years and have never been disappointed. The hotel is large and old, but the rooms are beautifully painted and carefully decorated so they look modern.and attractive. You'll get special attention at the pool so be sure to bring a bathing suit. The staff throughout the hotel and in their restaurants are friendly... More

This is a wonderful hotel, with a fabulous restaurant attached doing Farm-to-Table food. The views are wonderful and some of your needs addressed before you have time to ask. When we went into the room I noticed only one soft chair. We left to do a bit of touring and before I could ask another had appeared. But do be... More

The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous, and the building itself is very cool. However, the rooms are in need of some serious attention. The bathroom ceiling in our room had some cracks in it, the bathroom floor had a serious slant going on, and there were nicks and chips in the paint all around the room. The chairs in... More

We just spent a weekend at this lively, historic hotel in Cape May. Great restaurant and bar, 2 pools, beautiful lawn area and adequate rooms made for a wonderful weekend on the beach. Fun shopping next to the hotel. Great spot for kid!

My husband and I came for a weekend - checked in and my room was not clean - toilet bowl needed a good twirl of a brush! The fridge was not cleaned out - had a used bottle of wine left by the last guest. I went to the desk and housekeeping was sent right up. Room could use an... More
