    I booked the Congress for my sister's Bachelorette Party.. and we had a great stay. We had a two bedroom suite. It was clean and spacious. The hotel lobby is beautiful. The rooms are a little dated, but we did not mind. I would return.

    This was a birthday trip for my son's 13th birthday. I definitely overpaid and would NOT give this hotel a 4-star rating. We were on the 11th floor, after we finally found our room, it was little to be desired. Mind you I knew we...More

    Exposed wires in room, broken glass in hallway, bathroom so scary both of us refused to take a shower. This is the cheapest hotel on the mile but not worth it. Should have spent $100 more and been happy.

    The newly updated room we stayed in, was probably redone in the 1960s. Call the hotel directly and ask for the suite # and verify with them.
