We have stayed here a couple of times and have had friends stay too. My parents live near by so it is a real treat for us to balance family time with a romantic getaway. The hotel itself is beautiful and has such character. Our room was spacious and so refreshingly cool in July. I love that they allow dogs;... More

From the minute you step into the old Florida (unair-conditioned) lobby, you feel like you have stepped back in time. The antique elevator which must be operated by a staff member just adds to the feel. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The cleaning staff was very accommodating. Complimentary breakfast and live entertainment are a nice touch. Also included... More

Just spent a few days at the Colony Hotel. The staff was excellent as was the cabana club; a great pool, a restaurant that was tasty and a beautiful beach. The room was comfy, not central air but the a.c.units worked really well We loved the feel of the entire experience. They even had yoga classes every day in their... More

The Colony got its start when you could only get to Southeast Florida sensibly by train. A short walk from the old Delray Beach train station, the Colony has been re-modeled with colorful furniture, but retains its art-deco 1920's charm. What Florida once was before any of us were born. But modernized and air-conditioned for modern types. A great central... More

My husband and I escaped for the weekend to take a break from raising three teens and this place was a lovely place to escape to. We loved our corner queen room and the bed was very comfy! It is an historic hotel with loads of character. Super clean and the staff were all super friendly. Loved the the decor... More

The staff and service was very good. The bed and pillow were great. Towels of high quality. The hotel itself is "Historic" but well maintained. With a staff operated elevator. Great location for shopping and dinning. We just got back yesterday after a 3 night stay. No complaints. Great guitar player on the patio Sat night. Week nights are quieter.

Always entriqued by the look of The Colony Hotel in Delray Beach, Fl., my husband and I, along with another couple, booked 4 nights stay in April of this year. It appears, on the outside, to have been plucked from the 1930's. Yellow stucco with striped canopy's, and a delightful front porch right on Atlantic Avenue...the hot spot street in... More

This century old hotel has carved out a niche in modern times, as travelers search out smaller boutique type accommodations . Old is definitely new again! Our king room was on the small side, but the hard wood floors, turn of the century furniture, and a bed with an oversized carved headboard provided a comfortable stay and a touch of... More

If it is not, it should be landmarked. Wonderfully helpful staff, and what is probably the most beautiful and unpretentious hotel in Florida. The hotel hasn't changed much since 1935, and I hope it never changes. I like the breakfast too.

This being our 3rd visit in the last 4 years, it appears little has changed during that time (and maybe longer), and that's a good thing. Coming into this charming, small hotel through the back ballroom entrance is a bit of a throwback in time: hardwood floors, and the ornate, colorful ceiling and walls, decorated with black-and-white photos of the...
