Pros and cons

Not front beach like advertised and furniture fixtures falling apart, elevator took too long , walk the stairs better . Etc
Great hotel and good location
In the heart of it all
It was right on Ocean drive in the middle of South Beach's Art Deco. The room was large and clean, and the staff was friendly.
N/A - was happy with everything.
It's always a party on South Beach!
Great location to South Beach Miami and all that it includes. The diversity of people, the constant party atmosphere, it's ALL happening on South Beach.
It's pretty noisy until 3:00 or 4:00 am. Careful with the drink menu - I ordered a mojito -and it came in the bathtub size glass for$42! I wouldn't bring pre teens or younger -there's much adult activity going on that they don't need to see up close and personal.
The location was good. They had granite and lg appliances.
The hotel is split in what I would call two different buildings maybe 3?. There is another business in between. So to get to where you check out and the pool is in a diffeenrt building. This being because my room was in the other building. The rooms are decent. Very cheap. The bed was on what looked like ply wood. The air unit had a dirty filter and mold. It's hard not to look at being its seen while in the shower. There were 3 different colors of light bulbs in the room. Hope you get a high room we were on 5th level in the other building and imthe noise was fine but one floor down and it bounces off the other buildings and is quite loud know this from another family member staying on the 4th floor. Does not have that comfy welcoming feel of being on vacation when you come in the lobby. There is also no bathroom in the lobby or any welcoming refreshment that most hotels seem to have now a days. I was also with and older couple in there 60s that stayed in another room and they had very so similar feelings. Great for the location of the beach but will not go out of my way to stay there again
Noisy beyond acceptable
location was excellent except for the noise echoing through the alleyways on both sides of the building!!! The staff was friendly in the hotel and the restaurant and the food (didn't try the mexican) was good....not great, but good. The view from the rooftop pool was beautiful
Unless I don't want ANY sleep, I can never stay here again. It's too bad, but the drunks screaming until 4 a.m. echo in the alleyways and then the rubbish trucks come along and keep you awake and lastly, some "clown" was going up and down the street yelling "Good Morning, Miami" @ 6 a.m. I was so glad I only had reserved one night.....it ruined my entire next day because I was exhausted from no sleep and I didn't go out to the bars.
Had a great stay at the Congress and will be staying again
It took a little long to get checked in and the elevator was slow and broken for some hours
Amazing rooftop pool with a great happy hour. Right across from the beach so great location. Right in the middle of the action.
The noise is a bit intense. Also the hotel is by the pushiest restaurants on Ocean St, which got to be a bit much.
Good location, friendly staff.
The hotel rooms are not well insulated against the loud music and busy happenings of the street. For instance, on its first floor here is a restaurant/bar that plays music very loudly till 3AM, so if you are not prepared to be out that late, you will have a tough time falling sleep because of the noise.
design of the room
the front desk personel (unkind) and the room carpet (stained)
Location on South Beach and price was very affodable
The room was very cold 62 degrees and the front desk explained it was unseasonable cool and the rooms did not have heaters.
Room size,vicinity to beach
Some front desk staff very friendly,others not at all.. Housekeeping turned on the dishwasher every day,just to wash our 2 coffecups.Thats expensive for the Hotel and not enviromentally friendly.
Well located for walking around the art deco area. Good to have a (small) roof top swimming pool to cool down in.
I like the location.
There hidden fees.
exellent location in the heart of Miami Beach, lots of restaurants and bars around, beach just opposite the road
valet parking quite pricy at 35$ (other hotels in Miami Beach charge 15-25$), very noisy aeration/climatisation fixed on the outside facade right next to our window, long discussion with the receptionist who insisted on charging us beverages from the minibar although we didn't touch it...
The rooms were set up nicely and the beds were very comfortable.
-Pool was very small to accomodate four buildings worth of guests, the pool was cleaned only once a day and this goes for the common area as well, food containers, cups, cigarette butts, truly disgusting. -The concierge service was definitely not up to parr. We had to inquire about what type of tours were offered as opposed to the information being suggested nor did we see any flyers out. -Front desk service was terrible. Each time we called requesting something (ice, towels) we would have to call two times at least. None of our rooms were ready when we arrived and we had to continue calling to see when they would become available. At the time of checkout, no one had the patience to explain the charges to me.
Beachfront location and our balcony room
On check in we were not allocated the correct room as in our "room description" as we had no balcony.A Correct room was not available. Excuse given as an unexpected overstay of previous guest. 50 dollars was removed from the bill for the first night. A balcony room was provided for the next 2 nights which we liked a lot more but, it was not a Junior Suite as in the room description as it was just one open plan room. The staff were helpful but our first night was a complete disappointment and stressful and spoiled our overall experience somewhat. Worthy of note is the fact that you can only park your hire car at various meter parking locations at 1.25 per hr, 9am to midnight ! Or Valet parking at the hotel at 35 dollars a day !!
The room was stylish and was very clean and comfortable. It was in a great location. Would recommend this hotel as it had everything we needed. Fantastic!
modern, funky hotel. fantastic hip bathroom. outstanding and trendy pool. loved the apples and popcorn. lovely touch. unusual pool furniture, especially the shoe loungers. love the strand.......
