My husband and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary, but we made our plans a little late for the Christmas holiday season. I had always thought we would stay in one of the Bed & Breakfast Victorian homes. But by the time we were ready to book, pretty much everything was sold out. There were only a couple of rooms left in Congress Hall. We booked a Junior Suite as that was one of the two. It was a large room and even in bed, we could see the ocean from every window. That was fantastic! The place was decorated beautifully for Christmas and we stayed there 3 nights, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The service was very good, and the place was decorated so beautifully!! I would highly recommend staying there at Christmas. The biggest plus was such an excellent location and near the major shopping Mall area. Also, on weekdays, they serve breakfast until 12 noon and on weekends until 3 PM. My husband and I discussed that if we had stayed at a B & B we would have had to have gotten up and had breakfast by 9 AM and would have had to drag our luggage up lots of stairs, instead of the elevators which were there almost instantly even with a full hotel. The bar downstairs called The Brown Room has a blazing fireplace and was delightful and we like The Blue Pig Restaurant in the hotel as well. Fortunately, we were able to visit many of the B & B's during our stay with various tours that we took. They are lovely, but we plan on revisiting Cape May as we loved it there, and we plan on staying in Congress Hall again when we return...
