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.

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.

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.

Excellent location, but lousy at night

Excellent location, but a bit noisy at night. Not much can be done though because of its location at the heart of Miami beach where people party till the morning. May wish to consider another location if travelling with young kids. Otherwise, it is perfect for young couples or those wanting to party in Miami beach.

Overnight in Miami

This trip was our first time in Miami. The hotel staff was excellent. The 1-bedroom deco was huge. We stayed on the third floor with a view of Ocean Drive. Stayed on a Friday night so it was quite loud, but we were tired and didn't have much trouble falling asleep. Had a drink at the rooftop bar. Staff was nice, the area looked like it had seen better days. The restaurant connected to the hotel had terrible service, but good food. Hotel stored our bags for the day and called us a cab for the airport. Very pleased and would probably stay again if we head back down to Miami.
