We have been visiting Cape May for over thirty years, and this was our third stay at the Congress Hall. It is a charming hotel that has a wonderful mix of old world charm with some modern amenities. The Brown Room is a great place to relax in front of the fire and enjoy some appetizers and cocktails. The rooms have very comfortable beds; the bathrooms are not as large as one might expect, but they are certainly in keeping with the period of the hotel and, most importantly, are very clean. The location is great - right across the street from the beach and right next door to the Mall - three blocks of specialty shops. Overall, I recommend this hotel for anyone who would enjoy the period feel of an hold hotel.
