My wife and I made our 2nd trip to Congress Hall within 12 months. We visited last summer, but cannot make a summer trip this year, so we went the week after April. The hotel is simply beautiful and has so much "old world charm." Valet parking is nice, along with complimentary coffee your first night, and complimentary NY Times each morning. If you like a hotel that always has the feeling of "there's something going on," then this is the hotel for you. When we were there, there was a wedding and reception. It didn't hinder our stay, but the music could be heard until around 10-11 PM.
The bottom line with this hotel is this - (and a few others touched on this) - both times my wife and I stayed at CH, we were able to get an online deal they offer from time to time. Our room was suppose to be 200, but we got it for 115. In the summertime, our 300 room was only 175. If money is NO ISSUE for you, then it doesn't matter, but for those who don't have a money tree in our backyard, CH may be difficult to stay multiple nights for some people. In peak season, unless you have serious dough, don't even bother looking for oceanview rooms - they're going for about 600+. So, overall, WE LOVE THIS HOTEL, but all the stars have to be aligned in the universe for us to be able to stay our usual 2 night stay in Cape May. The location for this hotel CANNOT be beat...it's in the HEART of the historic district. Overall, highly recommended, but you better open up your wallet if you can't get an online deal/sale.
