Beautiful historic inn
Congress Hall is a very historic Inn just acrossthe street from the beach in Cape May, NJ. It is beautiful (especially at Christmas), very clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. Parking is free - both self park and valet are on grounds. There is a nice restaurant, a bar/lounge, a coffee shop, gift shop, and spa in the building. The quaint outdoor pedestrian shopping mall is across the street. This makes for a nice get away for couples or for a girls weekend.

Missed the Pig
Beautiful hotel & had a wonderful time!! Only thing that was disappointing was when we tried to eat a late lunch at The Blue Pig. Site says lunch is until 3pm, yet we tried to get a table for a quick bite @ 2pm & there was nobody around. There was just a sign saying they’d be reopening at 5pm for dinner. Maybe next time.
