We stayed at the Congress because it was close in proximity to First Merit Bank Pavilion. However, if I would have known that the hotel was in poor condition I would have been okay staying elsewhere. The room was very dated and the bed was worn and very uncomfortable.
On the plus side we did have a great lake view and were in walking distance to several area attractions (including First Merit Bank Pavilion). The front desk staff was not friendly during check-in or check-out.
