I go to south beach 3-4 times a year from Alexandria, VA to get away from the daily work routine - decided to try the Congress Hotel on a recommendation from a friend. I’m glad I did! Stayed at the main building but I believe all the rooms in their other buildings are furnished the same but with different views....

My experience at the Congress hotel was a memorable one. From when I arrived, the Staff was more than helpful, courteous and professional until the time I checked out. I was especially impressed with the attention to detail the management team and staff extended to me as a guest and to my friends as visitors. It was my first visit...

I wasn't too keen on having to access my room by the side entrance, but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. I simply loved the soaking tub and the rainfall showerhead. There was a small kitchenette outfitted with...

I spent my birthday here this past weekend and it was amazing!

Stayed there for a long weekend girl's trip and had an amazing time. Loved the Congress Hotel, great location right across the street from the beach, restaurants/bars, clubs, shopping all within steps of the hotel. The staff was amazing whenever we asked for towels, lotions, soaps, etc. Our room had a little kitchenette in it which was perfect so we...
