Beautiful property. We will definitely be back! Great service and comfortable beds!

Great stay .. they have great set up for Xmas time

The hotel has so much to offer from the views, food, bar/lounges, pool, beach and so much more. The staff was very nice and attentive. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in.

Went for my birthday, and I am so glad I did. It was an experience I will never forget, especially because my sister treated me and my mom for a 2 night stay. Will definitely stay there again.

We can’t say enough about how wonderful this hotel is! The facilities and staff are amazing. The hotel really caters to kids and adults alike. We can’t wait to return.

relaxing family getaway. convenient and laid back atmosphere! live music and kind staff. only con is the cost! hopefully will find a deal for next trip

This hotel was absolutely amazing. Having a very deep interest and former Chairman of the Historic Preservation Commission in Georgia, I was impressed with how much of the original decor had been preserved. If I could modify one thing it would be the bed - it was much to firm for me. Perhaps offering rooms with aofter mattresses for those of us who prefer them soft would be a great feature. The restaurant was fantastic - great atmosphere and food.

Everything was outstanding, the only drawback was the outdoor pool, which only opens for the summer season..

My first time visiting the area and I noticed most places are either motels or bed and breakfasts. I arrived late and they were able to check me in over the phone before hand. Also, plenty of parking for a place literally right next to the beach. Has an old timely feel to it, and very nice aesthetics. No problems that I could tell.

Congress Hall was amazing. The rooms were clean and beautiful. They were large and comfortable. The lobby was decorated for Christmas and the whole hotel looked as regal as it must have been 100 years ago. We felt honored to be there.

This old and charming hotel is truly beautiful but it needs sound proofing very badly! The rooms are extremely noisy. We were placed in a room with a lovely view of the sea. The room was connected through an internal door to another room. The insulation was so poor that you could hear every single noise through the door. The occupants of the room arrived late and we could not sleep for the whole time they kept talking. Mind there were just talking and laughing but we could here every single word.... The second night we asked for another room and this time it was better...There was no internal connecting door and the room next to ours was vacant. I guess we were fortunate it was April and the hotel was not very busy. They must sound-proof the internal will help... The restaurant in the hotel (The Blue Pig) is wonderful. We had breakfast and lunch and was truly an enjoyable culinary experience with excellent service.

We checked in a bit before official check in time, and because we were there for a wedding, really hoped for our room to be available so we could get ready. We only had to wait about 15 minutes. The room was really nice, big bathroom. Perfect location, as the wedding was in the same hotel. Bed was really comfortable, we had a king. Overall very nice.

Always a great time at Congress Hall. We came for the Halloween Ball and had a blast! Going to the Beach Plum Farm was an added bonus. Just come here! You won't regret it!

Beautiful hotel with great Cape May charm. My husband and I were married there and enjoyed every moment of our stay.

I booked my stay here as a surprise little getwaway birthday present for my husband. It was perfect because they have a resaurant and spa right there and very close to the beach! I got him an hour massage which he loved and I got my nails done while I waited. We parked our car and were able to do everything by foot or bike ride.

The hotel was more than expected, but due to NO HEAT and the weather below freezing it was very difficult to be comfortable in either the rooms, spa, lounge or restaurant. I realize the transformer replacement was more of an inconvenience than the hotel thought it would be. Would have been very nice for the hotel to comp a service or meal for the frigid temp inside the hotel.

Just an overnight but the room was comfortable, great location in front of the beach, nice view (oceanfront room). For the price, should include breakfast, even if basic option. Food at the Blue Pig was delicious!

Beautiful seaside resort with an aristocratic aura. Staff couldn't have been nicer, lots of history with a "Grand Hotel" feel. Guest were like old friends relaxing in there living room. Worth the trip.
