I was in Congress Hall for one night with my son who is 5 years old. I chose this hotel because of the proximity to beach.
I liked the old world charm and hotel has done remarkably good job of keeping the originality of a beach hotel, from last century.
The rooms were well decorated clean and had great ocean view but, there was a major flaw. There was at least half inch of gap at the bottom of the doors and every time we walked the hallways I could hear every thing inside the rooms. I was lucky that my room was at the end of hallway other wise people walking outside would have kept us awake.
My problem was with the service that was not very helpful, I was actually told to park my car on the street despite the fact that hotel does have a good size parking lot.
Now the worst part, never ever pay for the breakfast when you reserve the room. I paid $20 for the breakfast . usually when you prepay for the breakfast it includes a reasonable breakfast --- Not at this hotel. I probably ordered a minimal breakfast with eggs, toast and potatoes thinking that would at least be covered in my prepaid breakfast, NOT SO.
When I tried to leave I was accosted by the waitress who 'loudly' told me that I haven't paid for the breakfast. I tried to explain that I had prepaid for the breakfast. She came back with a bill and told me that would not cover my breakfast I still owed her close to 6 dollars. I felt so shocked and humiliated that I handed her 20 dollars and went back to wait for the change. That never came. I left after waiting 15 minutes.
Needless to say that I t left a very negative feeling for the rest of my day .
