Right in the heart of the action

Would recommend Wed, Nov 18, 2015
First time to SoBe and was just dumb luck that we stayed at The Congress.. right where all the action is and across from the beach! The lobby is small, not much to offer.. and there's always just one person working so there's a wait if others are ahead of you. But clean, bright, easy to find if you can read signs... (down an alley between 2 of their 4 buildings) The rooms are great... cross between apartment/hotel room complete with a microwave/stovetop, fridge and freezer, and even a dishwasher! Separate room with a second tv holds the bed and small closet, two bedside tables. Was nice to be able to section of the sleeping quarters. Snacks, juices/beer/alchol were stocked along with a price list and the beers were the most reasonably priced in the area! Was nice to be able to come back to the room and have a $3 budlight instead of staying out for the $8 last beer of the night. It is LOUD there. I read reviews ahead of time and brought earplugs thank goodness. If loud music until 3 am keeps you up, I'd suggest doing the same. Resort fee of $12.50/per person per night covers wi-fi and free drink happy hour (5 pm -6pm) daily up at the roof bar... (which is not nearly as swanky as it looks in the pics) but Eddie serves up great drinks and quickly too... GREAT great guy... and a Pats fan, so of course we loved him! I'd go again in a heartbeat if I visited SoBe again...

Excellent Trip

Would recommend Fri, Oct 30, 2015
It was an excellent trip with restaurants, sites and attractions in reach. There is also alot of shopping areas with great prices and the night life was wonderful with clubs nearby. The only downside about my stay was that there was no free parking anywhere.

Husband birthday getaway

Would recommend Tue, Oct 27, 2015
We arrived at the Congress hotel around 10:00am. Of course the rooms were not available and we didn't expect them to be. However the hotel staff checked our luggage and secured it in a safe place until we were able to check in. Upon check-in, we were given a coupon for a free cocktail and the rooftop pool. We also received wristbands for a daily happy hour during our stay. The room was comfortable and we loved the large head shower. On our second day there, the front desk staff called the room to make sure everything was to our liking. Our favorite highlight of the Congress Hotel is the rooftop pool and bar. The view from up there is breath taking. Congress hotel is in the center of everything. This was the perfect location. I had read reviews and I knew it was on Ocean Dr however, I did not know that we would be walking distance from everything we wanted to do. The beach is across the street, restaurants are all along Ocean Dr. Even night life is great on Ocean Dr. You can walk to Collins Ave or Washington Ave for more food options.

Location Counts

Would recommend Sat, Oct 3, 2015
The hotel and its location were very good. Across the street from Lummus Park and the beach and centered on Ocean Drive. The air condition was EXCELLENT, an important consideration when visiting South Beach in September. The room was spacious, clean, well appointed, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I've stayed at other hotels in the South Beach area for the past 20 years and this is one of the most comfortable experiences I've had. The price could be better. Even with the off season price it was a little high. However, the location and overall experience made it ok. I would definitely stay at the Congress again in the future.

Great location

Would recommend Mon, Sep 14, 2015
We stayed there over the Labor Day weekend. The location was excellently convenient for the beach, partying, and checking out the stores and restaurants in the area. I rented a car, and I was worried about parking, but the valet was convenient. It is pricey, but you're paying for convenience and scarcity. There was a cheaper self-parking lot one street back, but I think I'd still opt for the hotel valet parking. The room was small, but clean, new, and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. This being our first trip to Miami, we didn't know what to expect, so we ended up spending our one full day -- morning until night -- heading down to Key West, stopping at some sights on the way, and then hitting a club on the mainland. We didn't get to enjoy the great location as much as we wanted to or even hit the hotels happy hour at the pool (free drinks!) or two complimentary welcome drinks, but it was still worth the stay. Overall, it was a great stay, and the staff do an excellent job of helping their guests enjoy their visit.
