    The decor of the hotel was simple and quite attractive. Staff was friendly and rooms were straightened several times a day. Our ocean view was wonderful. Best of all, when we went to the beach across from the hotel, staff provided and set up an umbrella, beach chairs and towels for us where we chose- right by the water. We had a wonderful time.

    I would have liked to have a small refrigerator in the room. Otherwise, it was everything we hoped for. It is, however, very expensive.

    We found the location and history of Congress Hall to be great. The architecture, the old pictures hanging in the hallways, the staff, all made a memorable weekend for us.

    History of building was very interesting. Decorations were very nice and staff were very serving.

    We found it extremely noisy and well, over priced. Sink was loose and falling from pedestal, shower handle was falling off. Windows rattled. Every noise in the hall reverberated into the room.

    Superb

    Location and feel of the place was excellent. Enjoyed the Brown Bar and the Blue Pig as well.

    There was a mix up in the booking, and it took several hours to get us rooms. The rooms were not what we originally booked.

    Absolutely fantastic staff who were very helpful and attentive....nothing was ever an issue for them...friendly and responsive. Wonderful facility with charm and history in every room. Great corner suite with large room and bath, deep soaking tub was a real plus! Beach is beautiful and the ability to have chairs all set up right where you want them and get room service made this a very special time! Easy walking to the shopping area and numerous restaurants.

    As befits the age, the soundproofing is not as good as a modern facility, but that should not be a reason to avoid this facility.......

    It is a beautiful, old hotel that has enough modern amenities to be comfortable yet still charming.

    What they call ocean view is stretching the truth - and requires stretching your neck. It might have been ocean view in the past, but there is a large hotel in the way now.

    As a business traveler I loved the historical context of this hotel. It was a most welcome change from the cookie cutter usual hotels at which I stay. The Blue Pig was also a wonderful surprise with excellent cusine and excellent service.

    My only complaint, quite minor, is that I wish I had stayed in a room with larger windows so I could have enjoyed the seascape

    I stayed there specifically for the Ocean Drive Marathon, but you did not offer even a cup of coffee to me.

    The hotelbar and locaton as well as the restaurants were excellent.

    I thought the room furnishings were sparse and not as nice as expected.

    Fabulous

    Congress Hall is a convenient location with great ammenities.The staff is more than compassionate. The gift shop was useful and not tacky.The Beach Service was great! A pity that N.J. does not allow a Margarita on the beach.The Blue Pig is a great place! This is a good place to be if the beach is the place.

    The lack of functional airconditioning...was rectified by a man named Izzy....He tried so hard..A Really nice guy! The lackluster Lobster Event..did not seem organized...not enough staff or advertising for the event..coordination seemed questionable. A little too expensive for a place with one ice machine for the building. Why do the elevator interiors look like gas chambers...stark,white with chipped door frames...? The lobby is nice..get the decorator to ply his craft in this most public of areas.
