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!

Congress Hotel review

The hotel was lovely. Great location, the room was great. The maid service could have been a bit better other than that, no complaints.

I would definitely do it again!!!!!

This was me and my beau's first time to Miami. We chose the Congress Hotel randomly with comparisons of other hotels in the area. The hotel is in a great location it is definitely located on the strip where everything goes on. From restaurants in walking distance, to gift shops, to convienant store, to plenty of clubs and of course the Lumas Park and the beach right across the street. It all happens on Ocean Drive.....around the corner on Collins ave. is the street where shopping goes on. The Congress Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Our air conditioner went out on the first night and they called for repair immediately, and immmediately they deducted 50% of our resort fee. It was fixed the next day. Other than that the room was comfortable for the two of us it was definitely an updated studio apartment. Housekeeping came everyday and cleaned the room. The pool is located on the roof and the view is absolutely beautiful. Other than not having a good view from our hotel room , we would definitely stay here agian but would request a room with a view.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The food at the hotel restaurants was the best compared to the other surrounding hotels. Bring plenty of money because eating and drinking at the restaurants are costly. We found it cheaper to eat at TGIFriday's and have a drink or two before we left the room to cut down some cost.

Great spot on Ocean

I have stayed at this hotel twice and both times my answer is the same. It is a good hotel. I would recommend to others. The rooms are like suites.

Has everything but the room with a view

Nice big comfortable modern rooms with big bath. The entrances were on the sides of the buiiding with a sophisticated self entrance system,,, so no grand lobby. However, breakfast that came with the deal was in front outside with good staff and food. All in all more like 3 1/2 stars.

Congress Hotel South Beach

Super FUN! The hotel is in the heartbeat of Miami. If you want a great time with music and a scene it's a great place to stay. Overall great experience. A few things to keep in mind: One elevator for guests of hotel and party pool bar guests, room wasn't cleaned until late in the day and there are extra "Hotel Fees per night per guest" that I didn't appreciate.
