It was a nice surprise to find a lovely historical hotel right in the middle of the active nightlife but still quiet when we headed to our room. There was music on the veranda both Fri and sat night with a enthusiastic crowd enjoying the tunes. Loads of excellent breakfast choices with very pleasant music played throughout the whole weekend.... More

Ordinarily my wife and I head to the Keys for a get away weekend but we needed to get out of the our house in Delray Beach while some work was being done and since we live in a great beach town with far more great bars and restaurants that almost anywhere, we decided to just stay in town.

Great old hotel with colorful lobby, hallways and rooms. Manually operated old time elevator took us to the second floor. (rode the elevator with our bags and for the experience). Wooden floors in the rooms. No carpeting. LOVED THIS! No central air. Window unit that was very efficient and quiet. Lobby has ceiling fans only. Breakfast was complimentary. Eggs, OJ,... More

Stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it! The room, the historic king was spotless! The bed was super comfortable! Yes the lobby is not air conditioned so the 'included' breakfast was a bit sticky! The Beach Club was amazing! Huge pool, comfy lounge chairs, cabanas and chairs on the private beach make we want to go back.....soon! Staff... More

The Colony is an old hotel that has not been remade to cookie cutter standards. The old wooden floors and manually operated elevator provide a unique experience that you won't find anywhere else. In a nod to the "old days", there is no air conditioning in the lobby area. This isn't too big a deal in the fall, winter or... More

I was traveling with my 55 pound dog and needed a hotel that would accomodate us. This hotel was very pet friendly, yet super clean. They even throw in a free breakfast. The room was big and nicely decorated. A short walk to the beach and right in the center of many shops and restaurants was also a plus. I... More

The Colony has great charm, comfortable rooms, and a friendly staff, but what I loved was that it gave you a great downtown location and access to the wonderful cabana club. You can walk out the front door of the hotel and have access to all the restaurants and shops in Downtown Delray Beach. If you want the beach, drive... More

We only live a few miles from the Colony Hotel, but since we were getting married downtown at Old School Square, we wanted to spend the night somewhere memorable. The Colony did not disappoint. Our room was beautiful, charming and comfortable. We rushed out in the morning to meet our family for brunch, but some of our guests stayed there... More

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
