Great hotel!

The hotel is located cross the street to the beach and the center of Art Deco district (aka night life district). We were fully prepared for loud noise after reading dozens of reviews from various website. However, it was not as noisy as we thought. The front desk upgraded us unexpectedly to the ocean view unit and put us in the building right next to the Versace mansion. If the trees were shorter, we would see into the mansion from the bedroom. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet guys chatted with us every time we walked by and recommended us good local flavor restaurants. The valet parking is $35/day which is pretty much the same for all hotels on Ocean Drive. We will definitely stay with Congress again when we visit Miami next time.

The best part about Congress is that all units come with a small kitchen that you can make simple breakfast if you don't want to eat out all day long. There is a huge Walgreen at the corner of 5th and Collins Ave, about 6 blocks away from Congress, that you can buy breakfast materials from there.

This was a really awesome hotel. It was ideal for the beach, the view was amazing! The front desk manager Kevin was of really good service. He was very accomadating! The bell boy Lewis was was so helpful! The room was really clean and just beautiful! The rooftop pool was nice plus the view of the ocean! Only complaint is the a/c made a really loud noise when it comes on and it woke us up.. Other than that this was a great stay!

Great Spring Break Trip

Took a trip out to Miami for the first time and had a blast and this hotel didn't disappoint. Near to local shops and great restaurants on Ocean Blvd. Has a great view if you get the room facing the Ocean, other rooms are more than fine also. It is also in the middle of all the "action". Overall friendly staff, clean rooms, clean hallways, plenty of amenities(but of course it will cost you your first born for a Snickers bar), nice rooftop pool area, and not too pricey overall. Stayed there recently for a second trip and enjoyed it as much as we did the first time. Keep it up guys!

Gave us the Wrong Room, not what we paid for

We specifically Booked a room with full ocean view. When we walked in the room there was no balcony and the room was facing another building. the Hotel manager apologized and said there was a mistake they accidentally gave our room to someone else. Horrible experience.

Nice location, clean room

I was happy with the hotel..Staff wasn't too helpful... Couldn't get towels or shampoos delivered until morning, when we had used up our first set. But not too big of a deal.
