Sold out - This deal was published August 23, 2013 and sold out September 19, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
Visit the seaside town of Cape May, "the jewel of the Jersey shore" (Frommer's), with a 50% discount at the historic, beachfront Congress Hall hotel.

Why we love it

  • "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
  • The town's Victorian cottages have "exuberant decoration and dazzling colors [that] make even Miami's Art Deco look almost restrained by comparison" (Conde Nast Traveler)
  • Guests are just steps from the Washington Street pedestrian mall, lined with ice cream shops, bars, toy stores and clothing boutiques

The hotel was so cozy and comfortable. The staff was friendly and professional. We enjoyed the Blue Pig Tavern very much!!! And at the end of the night we looked forward to winding down by the fireplace in the lobby.

This was our first time staying at Congress Hall and we truly enjoyed our experience. We look forward to coming back again.

Felt like home loved the fireplaces!

Only bad part was we had no wi-fi for three days, and the tv kept freezing up.

It was a totally different hotel experience than a typical hotel. Everyone was so friendly and cheerful. Families were hanging out in the common areas. It felt like one big happy family. Very enjoyable.

You also felt like you were stepping back in time, very historical old hotel.

Absolutely beautifully decorated for Christmas! Winter Wonderland going on was beautiful, as well! Cozy room. Excellent bedding. Blue Big Tavern restaurant has excellent food. The trolley tour of Holiday Lights was beautiful! Beach right across the street and the weather was comfortable enough to be down there everyday walking.

Well worth the price during holiday season. Historic value, as well.
