The right price to be in the middle of everything.. We did a Bachelorette Party Weekend.. Six of us and they were accommodating - two rooms across the hall from each other like I requested. They were up front about all the extra fees so we knew what we were walking into. Other hotels tend to have hidden fees. Its...

We arrived at the Congress in the early evening after a long flight to be told we were not on the list. Seems the staff can't process Expedia bookings as the paper was on the back desk - they were going to check us in on the day we were due to leave! Not a good start, then we were...

I was extremely disappointed with the level of service provided at the Congress Hotel in Miami, FL. I had booked two rooms several months in advance to ensure the rooms were situated nearby one another, as I was with a large group for a bachelorette party. I was reassured multiple times the rooms would be (if not next to) close...

The hotel location cannot be beat if you are looking to be on S. Beach and right in the middle of it all. Nice room and more spacious than we expected. The room was not "mint" and yes it did have some stains and minor "issues" but nothing that we would consider reporting on. Safe, clean, comfortable and in the...
