Verified Reviews of Congress Hall

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Adorable and Roomy."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
It is a lovely place and so pretty. I like that it does not look or feel like a hotel. The only thing that I did not like was the floor in the room was uneven and felt like I was off balance. The bathroom was so roomy, I loved it. The people were very helpful and kind.
