This was our first trip to South Beach, and The Congress was the perfect place for us. We are in our mid twenties, and this hotel matched our budgets and tastes perfectly. It was lively, with exceptional staff, willing to go the extra mile (notably Rafael and Louis, the bell-hops). The roof pool was small but essentially perfect for what we wanted. A great place to relax after the beach, watch the sun go down, or just hang out during down time on the vacation. The room was clean, modern and well-maintained.
Would stay again for sure.
Just don't get sucked into the hard-hussle restaurants that line the walk to and from the hotel along ocean drive. They look lavish and promise you excellent specials but, truth be told, they are overpriced, with sub-par flavor! Travel a little further down ocean to collins and find some other places with a less pressured approach to inviting in your service.
Also, if you'd like to bring fun, drinks to go that are big, AND affordable, one of the great spots was the bar directly below the hotel. A great place to start and grab a margarita before your trip down Ocean drive.
