Opened in 1816, the enormous Congress Hall is a local landmark, now suitably modernized without wringing out all the history. It's got everything you could ask for, including a spa and bicycle rentals, but can come off as a bit highfalutin.

Just before and after the high season you'll find good deals.

Quick description via booking.com

History buffs welcome: Congress Hall has overlooked the Atlantic Ocean, in the town of Cape May, New Jersey, for over 200 years. Once known as "The Summer White House," Congress Hall has been a welcome retreat to many throughout the centuries. Known as America's first seaside resort, the historical 19th century hotel offers 106 guestrooms, including newly renovated Junior Suites, each one individually named for the U.S. presidents or dignitaries who spent their summers there. Each Junior Suite is filled with pieces modeled after American heritage furniture with antiqued brass hardware, plush bedding and hand-dyed linen. Located in the center of New Jersey's Victorian District, there is never a dull moment with loads of activities within arm’s reach. Guests can relax in private cabana tents on the beach, or enjoy a relaxing and serene day at Sea Spa. Or, it’s a quick 5-minute stroll to West End Garage, a hall stocked with 50 little independent shops that make Cape May’s retail scene so unique.
