Editor’s Review of Congress Hall

If your family is looking for elegance and a little pampering in Cape May, consider Congress Hall. The stately resort, located directly across from private Congress Beach is a great choice for those looking to spend some quality beach time -- they offer free umbrellas, towels and beach chairs and have private cabanas available for a fee. The historic hotel began operating as a boarding house in 1816 for summer visitors. Kids will love the terrific pool, and mom and dad will appreciate the excellent service. It also offers a children's program for kids, ages 4 to 12, in July and August -- a rarity in Cape May. The resort's acclaimed Blue Pig restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and room service is available.
