10.0 Excellent
Pros:Over many occasions, I witnessed the staff going above and beyond expectations of guests. From making sure all the rocking chairs lined up to providing excellent cocktail service, it is clear that the whole staff is trained and believes in great customer service.
Cons:The hotel and grounds were top shelf. Nothing could have been better at Congress Hall. Cape May in January is understandable quiet; which is quite nice. However, many if not most the restaurants and businesses are closed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everyone was incredibly kind and welcoming. Our trip was very brief, and we returned to the hotel around 11pm, following the event we had travelled to attend. My daughter had been fighting a cold and wanted some hot tea to soothe her throat. There are no microwaves or coffee makers in the room, and the Blue Pig was closed. However, a woman was doing the bookkeeping and we asked if was possible to get tea. She went to the back and made a cup for my daughter. I offered to pay or bill it to the room, and she said not to worry about it. Also, the valet service is so convenient and sanity saving, even in the off season.
Cons:The fitness center is probably one of the least used amenities in any hotel, so the offerings aren't very robust. This holds true here as well. Two treadmills, an elliptical, a bike, and a bench with a rack of hand weights. My advice, pack a resistance band to beef up your options. It takes less space in your luggage than sock.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:The whole Christmas atmosphere. The hotel looked awesome!
Cons:That was raining the next day! Other than that it was a good stay!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Celebrated my 50th Birthday with wife & friends. Awesome!
Cons:The Bouler Room was closed Saturday Night :(
