Description: Welcome to Congress Hall, a haven of relaxed elegance, fun, historic charm and luxury at the New Jersey shore. Set amid sweeping, landscaped grounds overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Cape May's broad sandy beaches, Congress Hall is just a few steps from the ocean, in the heart of Cape May's famed historic district, just .4 miles from the Inn of Cape May (an 8 to 10 minute walk). Congress Hall's unique character combines the grandeur and elegance of Cape May's most revered landmark hotel with the appeal and convenience of a modern resort. Congress Hall offers a vibrant atmosphere and modern-day comforts within the grand serenity of this lovingly renovated nineteenth-century hostelry. The guest room accommodations offer state of the art amenities in an environment of timeless calm. Congress Hall's L-shaped design, a tradition among Cape May hotels, affords many guest rooms uninterrupted views of the beach.
