I was on vacation at South Beach, which should have been great in and of itself. Only problem, I had missed my flight, arriving late. When I arrived, the room wasn't ready. The front counter person, Stephanie, said she'd hold my bags, gave me towels for the pool, and assured me she would call me as soon as the room... More

I had a very relaxing vacation here this weekend. Stephanie at the front desk was very helpful, pleasant and nice. I loved the rooftop pool it had an amazing view of the ocean. I would stay here again.

Great place to stay! Went for our friends bachelorette party and as soon as we walked in door we had a guy helping us and telling us all the good spots to check out in Miami. Very clean, beautiful view from pool on 6th floor, and wonderful staff. Checked in our bags after our check out time and they held... More

We rented one of the suites for a couple of nights in August. They are ok and the location by day is second to none. The pool is on the roof and the views are fantastic. The issue is they sit on top of a bar which doesn't close until 4am. If you are in Miami to party this is... More

I can go on and on about the entertainment on the beach, but after the entertainment you just want relaxation. That's exactly what the Congress hotel provided for me. The staff was truly Amazing. Stephanie provided me with everything to make my stay perfect. Most of all the room and view was fantastic. I will definitely book again.

We arrived at the hotel on Aug 25 around 1pm. We were told that our room was not ready, but they would call if it's ready sooner. So we checked our bags and went to grab lunch. We never got a phone call, but check in is at 3pm so we went back around 3:30. We booked this hotel because... More

The room is beautiful, but the service in this place sucks really bad. No house keeping for 2 days and they think people don't use wash cloths because they keep forgetting to provide wash cloths after calling a millions times for someone to come clean the room. No coffee for a day after a long day and night out. Just... More
