"congress hall hotel"
Really nice place just a bit pricy. Friendly staff. Clean room. Spa and spa staff were great. Multiple dining and shopping options despite the time of year. Blue Pig is a winner! Some icy patches around the hotel on walkways that my wife slipped on. The valet parking was nowhere to be found Sat night at 11. Lobby lounge with fireplace gives a nice […] vibe.

"winter time fun"
Congress Hall had everything for our winter getaway. I was amazed at how crowded the place was for the dead of winter. They were able to make us feel warm, cozy and well taken care of. View of the ocean was splendid from a comfortable window seat with the sun beating in on us making us toasty although it was below freezing and extremely windy outsi […] de.

"Blue Pig Restaurant"
The Blue Pig restaurant quality of food is only fair at best. I ordered a NY steak that was terrible, at a premium price. However, I had breakfast the next day. Breakfast was great. Not very many people, but it took 30 minutes to receive our order. The waitress we had was a big zero. She showed up after we fininshed, and placed the check on the table […] and walked off. She must not work for tips. Maybe she is paid by the hour. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel in cape may"
good clean room. friendly staff. good location. no problems.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My boyfriend and I wanted a quiet holiday weekend before the family hustle and bustle of Christmas stress begins. We chose Cape May because we had been there in the Summer and the boyfriend lived there in his teenage years. Seeing Cape May and Congress Hall at Christmas is magical. It was the weekend to have breakfast with Santa and the Winter Wonderland […] was set up with actual train for the kids to ride. We don't have any children but watching them enjoy the holiday season was sweet enough. The weather was perfect for a heavy sweater and scarf for walking around during the day. Congress Hall was the perfect romantic place to stay. Even though there was a wedding that weekend, which resulted in wedding guests yelling up and down the hall way, it was still amazing. The room was spacious, homey and colonial. We had a view of the ocean and the huge Christmas tree in the back courtyard. We want to return to Congress Hall every Christmas as a new tradition.

"A just Okay hotel."
We understand it is an old hotel, but it lacked a lot of basic needs, no bureau in bedroom, no place for toiletries in the bathroom!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Getaway at the beach"
We were made to feel totally comfortable from the minute we walked to the door. Very relaxing and great to wake up with the sun coming in the balcony window looking out to the beach with a light breeze coming ashore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Happy with stay."
EnjoyedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were surprised at how quaint this hotel was. We came to CapeMay for a wedding at another hotel near by. (That hotel had a two night stay which did not work for us.) The Congress Hall was perfect. Way nicer than the hotel where the wedding was but right around the corner. We arrived early and were told prior that morning that our room would be ready […] to change in before the wedding. Upon check-in they said the room would not be ready and then we mentioned we had called earlier. The girl at the desk seemed a little annoyed and then gave us another room. The room was small but really nice. The bed and pillows were excellent, we loved the fact that it had an older feel but had all the comforts of a modern hotel. Room was really clean, especially the bathroom. We had breakfast the next day in the Blue Pig and it was excellent! Valet parking is complimentary and the staff was exceptional! We will go back!

"room was a bit small"
noises all night long--seemed to be coming from the rafters---previous stay was quite differentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
On a sunny October day, I was thrilled to see that the pool was still open for us to enjoy. The fireside reading area in the Brown Room was a god send on the day when it rained. The only thing that could have made it better would be if the chairs were more comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First class care"
The Hotel is magnificent. We asked for an upgrade upon our arrival because the first accommodation had some limitations. This seemed to be due to some communication snafu between Hotels.com and the hotel, we were told. However, the staff immediately worked to arrange for a better situation for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a lovely, old hotel with comfortable rooms and beautiful grounds. We loved the big bar area with its huge wood-burning fireplace and the adjoining tavern, the Blue Pig. Beware of the bed sizes, though. They assigned us a room with a double bed instead of the queen we paid for in a handicapped room which we didn't need. When we returned to the […] front desk to point this out, they gave us a king bed at no extra charge, so we were pleased. The mattress could have been a bit more comfortable, but that was our only complaint. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice OLD hotel"
Overall the stay was nice. Was there for a wedding the venue is nice and overlooks the Ocean. Food for the event was average. It is an old building as is evident by the rooms. The one we were in was actually on about a 5 degree slope. Would suggest as a place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location, location, location....!!!! That is what this hotel will offer. Close to the beach and even closer to the shopping center. Delicious food, very clean room. Excellent service. In another words...full package. I will be back there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i stayed at the Congress because the wedding was on site. the beach was great but the hotel food at the pool was ordinary. Salad and a BLT. the wedding event had outstanding appetizers but the main course was slow arriving at the tabels and the food was ordinary. It is an old hotle which doesn't hold any cahrm for me. the rates were outragous. iwould […] not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Great Choice!"
The location of Congress Hall is excellent. Walking distance to just about anything. The hotel itself was great! Very clean, employees were very friendly and helpful, and we just fell in love with the place. When going to the pool or the beach we felt like we were transformed "back in time" with their customer service: providing chairs, umbrellas, drinks […] and snacks. We also had spa services at the hotel, which were super relaxing and excellent! We will be going back again, hopefully soon! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Service was outstanding. Loved the restaurant, pool bar, and night club. Location is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was there one night alone but did not feel uncomfortable and slept very well. The staff was friendly. Would return again.Genuine Expedia guest review
My stay at Congress Hall was great. Very nice and clean and all around pleasant. The wireless service wasn't working while I was there which is more owing to bad luck than bad service. The neighborhood was quaint, which I liked, but finding a decent meal was tough. Nearby restaurants close at odd hours. Finding an afternoon lunch at a restaurant around […] 3 was impossible. A lot of the food I ate was simply disgusting and overpriced. I'm not a picky eater and I don't demand the best. But the food was really nasty. If you want a decent meal you'll have to drive. I ended up going to a fancy seafood restaurant which was awesome. Warning: the room offers a fridge, but you can't use it since it's stuffed completely with overpriced alcohol and water.

"Enjoyed Congress Hall"
The hotel is impressive; the staff was excellent; the room we had was a bit small, but I guess that should be expected in such an old hotel. Dinner in the Blue Pig was fabulous. Seemed a little pricey for this time of year and not on a weekend, but enjoyed the experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, old world comfort"
Our stay was delightful, we had a balcony room overlooking the ocean and pool and it was just beautiful. The closet was huge and the bathroom large and spotless. The young ladies covering the front desk couldn't be more helpful, every time I called to ask them something, they were accomodating and precise. They made reservations for dinner for us and […] told us the best shopping areas. The hotel itself is a throwback to a more elegant time. It is beautiful with many areas to sit and relax, including the rocking chairs outside facing the ocean! All in all, a five star hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was rude and snobby!! The rooms where cute but not very private !! We could hear everything !! The tv Didn't work right !! everything was slanted towards the middle of the hotel !! The bed was broken and slanted down wear your head would lay !! The decor was interesting !! The coolest thing was the history of the building !!! thats itGenuine Expedia guest review
"charming and bright"
This hotel is charming, from the rocking chairs out front to the bright colors inside. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was big enough for our pack and play to set up out of the way, and the environment was very family friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Congress Hall - Pros and Cons"
I've wanted to stay at the finest looking hotel in Cape May - Congress Hall - for quite some time. Finally took the trip and I although the overall stay was fine, I wanted to share the cons here. Pros - It is truly a stunning looking hotel inside and out. Staff was friendly. The restaurant The Blue Pig is great as well. We booked a town view room with […] a queen sized bed. Room view was great, bed was closer to full size bed than queen - a little to snug for comfort. There was a noticable slant of the floor of the bedroom; not sure if that's due to this very old structure settling, or by design. Our biggest gripe was the bathroom. There was just a shower on a tile floor (no bathtub or anything); when we questioned the front desk - they said that it was for handicap access - and that they put people in these rooms if they are booked up. We arrived at check-in time, and the Hotel wasn't crowded, so I'm guessing it was just an oversight (benefit of doubt). Not certain why the staff wouldnt have said that they were putting us in a room with a handicap-accessible bathroom right off the bat - that's the issue. In any case - It's a fine hotel - definitely a well-kept landmark. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was perfect. I really can't find anything wrong with our entire stay. Room was perfect for us... balcony facing the ocean was such a great place for us to enjoy our wine and cheese... and the music coming from the Brown Room just made it the perfect stay for us. Thank you!Genuine Expedia guest review
I paid extra for a king ocean view thinking it was a king bed.. no. It was a small double on the 4th floor. I couldnt find help at the front desk to rectify. The blinds did a poor job of keeping out the blaring sun even on a cloudy day. It was an interesting building, very large and historical. (A bit creepy for me though. Reminded me of "The Shining".) […] The neighborhood was gorgeous, and shopping and dining very close. Other than the mixed up reservation, I would recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Congress Hall – Cape May NJ"
Being well over 100 years old Congress Hall offers a unique look into what lodging once was and where service was of upmost importance. The room was very clean and comfortable with a lot of the old décor throughout the entire hotel. A very enjoyable stay and will recommend Congress Hall to friends and family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very disapointing time away from home."
Hotels com said the hotel had a hot jacuzzi and there was none we took the ferry across the Delaware only to find out the shuttle that thd nite clerk told us that would take us to the malls was not running except on weekends what a joke would never use this booking agency or stay at this hotel again. I felt like I spent the weekendd with the devil. […] Doesn't anybody do there Job any more is everyone incompetent or is it to much to ask to get what you paid for or am I discriminating against something or other. VERY UNHAPPY COUSTOMER.

"Congress Hall, Cape May, NJ"
A very high room rate for three adults for one night OFF SEASON? A bath towel had a hole in it, there were no chairs to sit on, room furniture was mismatched, there was no business center and no vending pop machine, No offer from the front desk for a less than satisfied stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Night in a Hotel Ever!"
Cape May is heaven in the winter - I had the hotel and beach all to myself. Great bird watching in the nearby sanctuaries. Excellent restaurant - comfy and informal with a big fire in the fireplace. My room was on the 4th floor with a windowseat overlook the Atlantic. If you're not a big fan of Victorian (and I'm not!), this is for you! Sound of the […] surf, open windows ooo la la.

"Wonderful Seaside Venue"
The hotel visit for New year's was wonderful. I must add, however, that their restaurant, Blue Pig Tavern, is not one I would recommend. Earlier visits were very good but now the service is poor the food only fair and the prices too high.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

My husband and I spent the night at Congress Hall Hotel in December. The hotel was decorated beautifully, the fire places were on, trees were decorated. The bar inside is warm and lively.

Unbelieveable location, amazingly comfortable and clean room and terrific restaurants at the best hotel in a one-of-a-kind Town.

"Best stay in Cape May"
We have stayed many places both here and abroad of this proported caliber and they lived up to every boast. The staff was excellent and the overall facility was as advertised and more. The amenities are great and the restaurants and bars in the hotel are excellent. I have stayed at many Inns in Cape May and this was the most enjoyable and does not stray […] from the overall feeling of Victorian atmosphere. The rest are great but this is the best. I have also recommended to others who have stayed recently and have come back to thank me. I will not hesitate for next year. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
