Very comfortable accommodation, pleasant staff and great view over the ocean. Dinner, lunch and breakfast in the hotels own restaurant is priced very well and very tasty with local products from their own farm. Rooms clean, comfortable and worth the price. Had a good time in the bar in the evening.

My husband and I returned to Cape May for another mini vacation. We stayed at The Star Inn again, however I am writing my review on Congress Hall which we spent most of our day at their pool and beach. Guests at The Star Inn get to use the facilities of Congress Hall. Our stay at The Star Inn again... More

The hotel property was well presented and the room was very comfortable. I took the historical tour and found it well worth the time. We were hoping to get a balcony room but those were all sold out. Our room still had a nice view of the ocean and we found it suited our needs perfectly. The bar on the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Congress Hall. The hotel is a lovely quaint establishment with easy access to the beach, restaurants and shops. Our room was beach chic with fantastic Aveda products and a delicious bed. The real standout was the service- the attendants at the beach constantly checked on our cabana and made sure that we were comfortable.... More

My family has been vacationing at Cape May for the past 25 years but have never stayed at Congress Hall. This year, we decided to join another family at this historic hotel. The location is terrific if you do not want to be far from town. The beach, Washington Street Mall and Cape May's restaurants are all within a three... More

I got out of bed in the morning and literally fell back in! And the bed was not only lumpy and really... More

My daughter and I stumbled on this beautiful hotel with a grand lobby, lovely gifts shops, and café. The garden and lawns are amazing. This hotel is really beautiful and tasteful. Full of Cape May history. The place was full of guests and seemed like a wonderful place for vacation.
