The Desmond is a hotel with an old style and some aspects might need an update. But it is very clean and comfortable. The best is the staff. All of them are very friendly and some of them go above and beyond. Whenever I stay in Malvern or KOP I use this hotel.

I liked the hotel. It would be a high end hotel if some of the physical aspects were updated/remodeled. The staff on the hotel side were exceptional. They have a couple of nice restaurants, but the hosts are downright rude... so don't expect to be treated with any courtesy.

We were here for a conference, and this room was perfectly adequate. I didn't think it was loud as some of the other reviews have said. I usually stay in hotels where you have to pay for parking, so I appreciated the free lot for my rental car. I also liked the bar, with friendly bartenders and good beers on... More

Visited Hotel Desmond for a QVC weekend. Our room was a balcony room and was a nice size. Beds were comfortable and room was cleaned daily. We also ate many of our meals here and the breakfast and dinner were excellent. We also found the front desk to be very helpful when shipping some packages home. Would recommend this hotel!

This is a fine hotel for the last minute get-away. Be sure to ask it there is a wedding, or other major event, going on at the time you will be visiting, as it can be a bit noisy in the hallway. The food in the restaurant is very good. And the hotel staff is very attentive to ones needs

This was our first and not last brunch at the Desmond. Santa brunch includes family photo in front of huge Christmas tree w/Santa. Decent selection of food on buffet, fresh donuts and pastries constantly refilled by staff. Our group of 6 put away few pounds of perfectly cooked bacon. Grandkids loved having waffles and ice cream for breakfast. The tables... More

Very nice large hotel, this is a great venue for conferences and the staff is attentive. I stayed overnight from a business related trip and the room was very clean and neat and surprisingly large. Very accommodating!

The Desmond was in a nice location and had a nice facility from the outside. However, the rooms are dated and not much to look at. I was just there for a meeting, so the wow factor was not very important. I just needed somewhere to sleep and attend the functions. The meeting rooms were OK for what we needed.... More

I did not sleep here - I was only here for a special event. The event was lovely. It was a breakfast buffet. I food was delicious and the service was excellent. We arrived early and had coffee in a "sun room" that was beautiful. Very quiet and clean.
