This is definitely our go-to place when we need a break or are celebrating a special occasion. While we have stayed here several times, it's always been in early fall or spring. This time we decided to go on December 14th, as we needed a break. It was truly beautiful with the lights and decorations for Christmas (always tasteful, never... More

The is the one and only hotel that i can say at every turn, went above and beyond my expectation. The room was perfect. Even if i tried really really hard to find something wrong with the room, I would not be able to do it. The staff is the golden standard. Please, if there are any available rooms when... More

From the moment you walk in the door this place is amazing! The staff is steller!! I look forward to going every January. The heated pool/whirlpool is a nice touch. I prefer to stay on the concierge/adult only floor.

My wife and I enjoyed a "baby moon" this past weekend at the BPH. We've stayed here before so we knew what to expect. The service is top notch, very friendly staff and very accommodating. This is the first time we stayed in a concierge room on the 4th floor which is adults only ( we typically have our kids).... More

Three wonderful days were spent at the hotel from Dec. 24th through 26th. From being greeted warmly in the parking garage upon our arrival to our checkout everything was perfect. Two dinners at Victoria Restaurant were excellent,food and service. We will return.

My best friend—with whom I also travel internationally for long stays— and I like to do short get-aways. We decided to do a short winter retreat, with another friend, this year. I've always loved beaches in winter (sans the crowds) so we chose Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I'd walked by The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel and even eaten in their restaurant once,... More

Had an amazing New Year's experience at the Boardwallk Plaza Hotel with their New Year's package.

Okay, we've gone to Rehoboth for the Rehoboth beach half marathon four years and stayed at a different hotel each time. This hotel was the most expensive but the best. The decor is a bit cluttered Victorian but the staff was very friendly. Well.... we really did not need a concierge showing us to our room and stating the obvious... More
