Just returned from 3 night stay at congress hotel in queen deluxe room. The absolute worst hotel we have ever stayed in! We were first put in room 420. The floor slanted at about a 20 degree angle! I got out of bed in the morning and literally fell back in! And the bed was not only lumpy and really... More

Best location on the beach as its right in the center of promenade and steps to the beach, shops and restaurants. I liked not having to worry about... 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.

I was really surprised that when I booked the hotel for mother 's day to find out after I booked that the pool was not open. The heated... More

Congress Hall hotel is a historic hotel situated in Cape May. We have stayed at two bed and breakfast hotels prior to this. Here is the brutal truth. The hotel is extremely over priced for what you receive. It's perhaps the most basic ocean front room I've ever stayed in. The furniture, bathroom, and layout of room is almost too... More

Congress Hall is a treat. The grounds are lovely and there is a concerted effort in every detail and aspect -- from the yellow bicycles to the aqua pencils in the rooms. The expansive rooms are outfitted in casual seaside style. I highly recommend the strawberry pancakes at The Blue Pig Tavern, located within the premises. If you are looking... More

I love the history of congress hall. It's an impressive place. All the employees are very helpful and courteous. It' my favorite place to spend a family vacation at the beach. Your pampered. Every night there is live music on the patio. We have stayed there 5 times so far and will go back. My only recommendation is to stay... More

A bit old, but quaint, fine view of the beach, has pool, indoor restaurant, Expect to pay extra for a beach view, but it's worth it. The bathrooms have been renovated and are spacious and modern. The staff is friendly and competent. The king bed is very comfortable. The only drawback (and no fault of the hotel) is the early... More

We stayed at Congress Hall for 2 nights after staying in Wildwood for a few days, and really enjoyed our stay. We have a 3 year old and were afraid she'd rage after not being able to go to the boardwalk, but she had a lot of fun playing on the big lawn area overlooking the beach with the other... More

Cant go wrong - the grounds are beautiful and people are happy to serve you anywhere. The piano bar is my favorite. Rooms are elegant and the atmosphere makes you feel at home. It can get crowded, but for good reason as it is a popular destination for libations and relaxation.
