I love the charm. I love the location. I love the many activities and different bars. We loved the entertainment in both the Boiler room and the Brown room.
I liked everything! It was a wonderful visit!
History of hotel Querky On the beach - lovely walks The log fire
Middle of winter - everything in town was shut!
The atmosphere of the Brown Room and menu at Blue Pig.
Not a big deal but our room was cold. Until we got under those warm comfortors !!
The location facilities.
Loved the fresh flowers and the whole lobby.Ate at the Blue Pig and it was wonderful!
1.) Free parking, 2.) Aveda product line, 3.) staff was helpful
1.) Being charged every day for a room key deposit, 2.) New mattress needed - queen bed that bowed in the middle
I liked the facility. It was interesting, well maintained, comfortable, and located.
I did not like the late check in.
Unique hotel with original tiled baths, comfy beds, and lots of charm. Winter market on the back lawn and beautiful decorations for Christmas. Right off Washington Street Mall in downtown Cape May.
Lack of a hotel guide in the room- wasn't sure about restaurants, hotel policies, etc. Front desk staff a bit brusque, but maybe because it was so busy.
Love being down in Cape May on the ocean!
Furniture in room needs overhaul badly.
Left wallet in coffee shop, no problem, came back intact. Very friendly and smoothly run (highly competent).
Not a bad comment, but my computer could not get friendly with the WiFi. It did show it was connected, but my computer kept insisting there was a security concern and wouldn't let me go anywhere (used my I-phone as a hotspot & no problem). Did not mention it to hotel staff.
I loved the Brown Room! The low dim lights, fireplace roaring, comfy sofas and great service was perfect!!
Entire hotel to hot.
Excellent location within working distance of downtown and the beach. Beautifully decorated common areas. Attentive staff. Excellent restaurant in the facility. Free parking.
Older building. Floors tilt. Poor climate control in the rooms. Extremely uncomfortable beds. Very noisy.
Beautiful building with lots to do for everyone. Visit the Brown Room for drinks, don't miss breakfast at the Blue Pig, and take a stroll to the beach or town for shopping. Great, relaxing mini vacation!
Can be better staffed for check in.
Great, new , clean room. Excellent bedding and comfortable bed. Love the bar and resteraunt. Great off season price
I especially liked the atmosphere and ambiance of the hotel and Blue Pig restaurant, the freshness of their food, the nearness to the beach and the friendliness of the staff. The holiday decor was very pleasing to the eye and the energy was very positive.
While I did have a balcony and ocean view room it was not directly facing the ocean nevertheless I could see the ocean and beach from all windows.
Everything! (except the staff at the desk when I checked in/out)
The staff at the desk were not friendly
Activities. The hotel had numerous activities.
The room was very small and did not have any drawers. Had to live out of suitcase. Only one hard wooden chair in room for 2 occupants. Desk was nearly unusable due to that being the only surface in the room. Ice bucket, glasses, lamp, everything, was on the desk. It was totally overpriced. Lastly the hotel seemed to cater to the public MORE than to the hotel guests.
I love historic feel of Congress Hall. Some of the floors slope, but it's all part of the charm of an old building. The rooms are lovely and very clean. It almost feels as if you've gone back in time.
I booked our room via Booking.com and was only able to choose from one of the "Annex" rooms. The woman at the front desk felt inclined to tell me that ours was the "cheapest" room in the hotel because we only had a view of the air conditioning units. We knew it wouldn't be like the Ocean Front room we has stayed in previously, but the hotel is beautiful, so that was fine with us. The room was lovely, but what wasn't okay was the sound of multiple bottles being smashed in the dumpster all night long. It started back up at 5am. Not good. Also, they tell you up front that there will be a 125.00 card hold for up to 2 weeks (that's fine), but they didn't mention the additional 30.00 they hold on top of that for the key deposit--I discovered this when I got home & looked up my account. I almost felt like I was being talked down to by the woman who checked us in because we were booked in the annex. I didn't care for that kind of treatment. I know that we were treated quite differently when we stayed oceanfront. Also, about an hour after checking in, we went shopping & for a bite to eat on Washington Street Mall. When we arrived back to the room, we discovered that housekeeping had been in our room and changed the towels we had used for showering. We hadn't even been checked in for 3 hours and they were in our room when we left. I found that odd.
An old hotel with wonderful charm, kept in excellent shape with all modern amenities. Extremely welcoming atmosphere. Lovely dining room with very good food.
HAVING TO GO HOME!!
Everything! Great food, great beds, great views all tied up in Christmas Glitter! Loved it!
The appearance, you felt like you went back in time. The ambience as well. We had terrible weather from rain, to wind to bone chilling cold; it was nice to have a drink at the bar by the fireplace. The staff, were all great; our breakfast waitress, Rosie, was fantastic. We will definitely go back but during warmer months.
Loved staying at this historical hotel. Spending time in the lobby by the fire or having a drink in the brown room. Everything is in one place or you can walk to the town center for shopping or dining. We got a good rate for booking midweek. Will definite book again!
Don't expect super modern bathroom with double sinks, etc. this is an historical building.
The cleanliness of Congress Hall, friendly staff and fine dining. Reading up on the history of the Hotel was worth the trip, also the Cape May Wineries . Great trip !
The wet and windy weather.
