• Overview

    Congress Hall is America's oldest seaside resort providing hospitality since 1816 and is an iconic landmark hotel in historic Cape May. Located in the heart of the historic district of Victorian Cape May, Congress Hall is famous for its beauty, relaxed sophistication and the warmth and sincerity of its staff. Congress Hall was recognized in 2012 by the readers of Conde Nast Travelers as one of the top 45 hotels in the Northeast. Whatever the season, you will be delighted by the array of choices that make it easy to fill your days and nights.


    Relax in a private tent on the beach, lounge by the pool, or find solace on a rocking chair overlooking the Grand Lawn.  You can also pursue something more active like an exercise class on the beach, an invigorating bike ride through Cape May or a tour of our very own 62-acre Beach Plum Farm. No matter how you spend your time, you'll enjoy reliving your days over lunch at the Blue Pig Tavern or a cocktail at one of our nightspots.


    Accessible rooms are available in Standard room types. The rooms are outfitted with one queen or two queen beds located on the second floor, third, or fourth floor. The bathroom have either a shower/tub combo with grab bars or roll in shower. Grab bars are available by toilet. The bedrooms are spacious and have lowered peep holes in main entry door. Congress Hall has two guest elevators to access guest room floors. Accessible rooms must be booked direct over the phone with our central reservations department to ensure availability.
