Family of four stayed here September 2014. Service was definitely not what I expected at this price point - Reception was not helpful, valet was slow. Focus was clearly on wedding reception prep., not other guests. Hotel is noisy - we were up all night with noise from the hotel and the street. (side comment - we have lived in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights for his birthday. Great service all around. Close to everything you need for a relaxing mini-vacation. Mostly used our bikes to get around. Free wi-fi and valet parking included.

Stayed at this hotel a couple of times in years past and decided to visit again of a one night stay on a trip from FL to NY. I stayed in a room that indicated that it viewed an adjacent building of the hotel. The cost was $224 including a $20 breakfast credit. What they forgot to mention was the... More

Often stay at this historical hotel. Has a beachy yet classy ambience. Ocean views are spectacular! Always clean. Lounging around the pool with a Mai tai is the best. Christmas time is beautiful here.

We spent two nights at this charming hotel in Cape May after stumbling across it whilst visiting the town. Staff were very welcoming and the room was just wonderful full of old charm. Swimming pool was great. Unfortunately didn't manage to eat at hotel as very busy each night. Would recommend this to anyone visiting the area rather than the... More

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
