$109 - New Jersey: Victorian Cape May Escape, Reg. $249

Sold out - This deal was published September 21, 2012 and sold out October 03, 2012.
By Travelzoo Staff
"The jewel of the Jersey shore," the seaside town of Cape May has for more than 200 years attracted everyone from families to presidents with its "impeccably restored inns and quaint vibe" (Frommer's). Travelzoo negotiated a deal at one of the most popular -- and most historic -- hotels in town, Congress Hall, that knocks more than 55% off current rates.

Why we love it

  • For $109, check in for a one-night stay, Sundays-Thursdays through Dec. 27. You'll stay in one of the top rooms at the hotel -- a room with a view of the ocean, a king or queen bed, and bathroom stocked with Aveda products.
  • "The white-colonnade, Tuscan-yellow hotel is all breezy chic," raves Fodor's, with "sky-high ceilings, titan-size Victorian mirrors, glossy black wicker, and potted palms with attitude." Originally opened in 1816, Congress Hall served as the summer White House for President Benjamin Harrison and today offers guests a breezy beachfront lawn, spa, bar and lounge, and fresh seafood and comfort food at the Blue Pig Tavern, which is rated 4 stars by OpenTable users.
  • The town of Cape May makes for fabulous strolling, peppered as it is with Victorian cottages painted up with "exuberant decoration and dazzling colors [that] make even Miami's Art Deco look almost restrained by comparison" (Conde Nast Traveler). Wander the historic streets, past the ships moored in the harbor, and down Washington Street pedestrian mall, lined with ice-cream shops, bars, toy stores and clothing boutiques.

We both loved the rooms and the staff. The rooms were very clean. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful.

Getting in the room proved to be daunting because of the keys. Other than that, our visit was perfect. Loved the restaurant onsite. Loved the location. Can't say enough about how clean it is.

The historic aspect

The Blue Pig Tavern was great for breakfast plus we had a 15% of coupon. We had a wonderful dinner at Tisha's.

Congress Hall has so much character. We really enjoyed our stay. The Christmas decorations were fabulous. We had a drink in the Brown Room, ate breakfast at the Blue Pig and explored Cape May. We will be back.

Hard to say because EVERYTHING was great -- our room was impeccably clean, cozy, had a wonderful view; the staff couldn't have been more accommodating and professional, the complimentary drink was far more than a few sips, and our dinner in the Blue Pig room and waitress was outstanding.

The history in pictures of the building was also a treat as well as the warm and inviting fireplace lounges. It was one great big package of delight.
