Great place to spend the weekend. Right on the ocean. Room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of places to shop and eat right inside Congress Hall. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit Cape May.

Our recent stay at the hotel was wonderful. The Christmas decorations added to the beauty and charm of this hotel, starting with the cozy lobby, to the roaring fireplace. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the Winter wonderland.
