The Congress Hotel is old. The wall paper is a bit faded.(It states to be one of the older hotels - I am glad they don't slap paint on and pretend to be built recently. It has character and history !) The stay we had was wonderful! I paid ten dollars extra for a bigger room and ten for a view. A view we did get! Loved staying here! Right off the elevator and there was our room. Two King-size beds, very comfortable and the room huge. The view was exceptional. The location perfect for a day at the museum or a stroll to Grant Park. Getting a cab wonderful, Front desk pleasant and the rest of the staff- great. I will stay here again, and I think the hotel has charm and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
