Louis, who is an employee at the Congress Hotel, went above and beyond his job description helping us. He did everything we asked with a smile, and helped to get my 91-year-old mother settled when we arrived. He was always willing to do whatever we asked in a timely manner. Whoever hired him knew what they were doing. The rest...

I go to south beach 3-4 times a year from Alexandria, VA to get away from the daily work routine - decided to try the Congress Hotel on a recommendation from a friend. I’m glad I did! Stayed at the main building but I believe all the rooms in their other buildings are furnished the same but with different views....

My experience at the Congress hotel was a memorable one. From when I arrived, the Staff was more than helpful, courteous and professional until the time I checked out.
